    So after agonizing weeks of waiting i got my evo and here i am flawless until tonight. In my bed using it and yes it happened to me :( slight light leakage on the left side of the pgone its literally an inch long of light. No other places but i can see little extremely little light leakage all across the left side but that spot is very noticable. You guys think itll get worse? :(

    Don't wanna crush your dreams...

    but, it will probably get worse...

    and, the next phone you get, will have the same problem...TRUST ME.

    Stick with this one, get a case like the Innocase II (AKA Platinum @ BB) and it covers all edges and you literally can't see a thing. I have horrible, horrible light leak under all four buttons (and I am on my third Evo) so I just bought a case and said F!#$ it. Ignorance is bliss.

    got two EVO's in the house right now. One is mine (got it about 3 weeks after launch) and the other is my GF's (got it on launch day). there are no issues with either... so none have gotten worse. I think youll be fine.

    Had 2 EVO's so far. My first one had large light leakage under the home botton. It was very noticeable even when you weren't in the dark. As long as the bottom button lights came on you saw it. It the dark it was really bad!

    Got my exchange about 3 weeks ago and it is sooooo much better. There is like a spec of light that you might be able to notice in complete darkness, and that is only because I was really looking hard for it. Otherwise, you can't even see it so I am extremely happy with my exchange. It was a risk I was willing to take and it worked out for the better.

    New build is 6/24, hardware 003 with a Nova screen. First one was hardware 002, with a May build date.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I know almost every evo will have this problem and ive heard stories of some that are perfect but jeez i do NOT wanna call my best buy. Dude. In the past 3 weeks i exchanged my bb 4 times then annoyed the hell outta them to get this. Really dont wanna bother them again :x. I will be getting a case but if it does get worse i will be getting a different one
