    Is it just me? or the kickstand in the video looks pretty roughed up?
    Because the material on the kick stand is easily scratched?
    I can't imagine this guy (Phil Nickinson) has had the phone for long, wonder how he manged to do that :eek:

    One would have to be pretty brave to carry the EVO without some sort of protection :D the camera lens and NOW from the looks of it, the kickstand...Hope everyone has ordered some type of case! :)

    seems like a pain to remove the SD card as well, i wont be swapping sd cards much so i can careless

    I was concerned it might be flimsy but every review that's mentioned its quality has said it is top-knotch. BTW, I don't think I'll be bulking up or covering up my EVO...Ive never been big on cases or screen protectors, really.

    Skip to 1:20 in this video, seems like the kickstand is plenty sturdy and has a nice secure feel to it.

    I ordered the Seidio innocase. It will be protecting my camera lens and my kickstand. :)

    But guys why does it look so scratched? I thought this would convince people not to carry it around naked :D wear and tear that fast!

    The kickstand is metal. it will not get scratched. it might look like it in the video because its supposed to have
    a brushed chrome look.

    metal doesn't scratch?

    to the OP, it is scratched BECAUSE it is metal... they probably used alluminum... have you ever seen the back of an ipod? they are scratched to hell, doesn't mean bad build quality, just means they didn't use tempered steal... i don't think scratches on a kickstand are gonna bug anyone too badly... but if they do, get the ghost armor skin, it comes with a skin for the kickstand too

    i know exactly what you mean... companies spend time designing the phone to look great, and it does! so i don't have the heart to cover up the beauty... plus i want to show it off! :D


    if anything i think i might get a screen protector though, it probably doesn't need it, but meh, the phones 50% screen, so might as well :)
