    Anyone read impressions regarding build quality? I have the Incredible now and I'm thinking about the Evo and Sprint. One thing that I dislike about the Incredible is the build quality. It is not bad build quality at all but it is a little more plasticky than i would like. The glass also feels very flimsy.

    Are they using Gorilla Glass on the Evo?

    I think it would be similar to the HD2 in build quality. Not sure though, Haven't seen it in real life. :)

    Not gorilla glass. If its like the HD2 the EVO will be much more substantial than the incredible both in size and weight.

    It's a solid 6oz, hells yeah. If it feels anything like the HD2, I'll be more than happy.

    Held an HD2 today and the backing is really nice. Kind of wish the Evo was the same.

    I'm not sure about the texture of the phone, I was talking about how solid (heavy) the phone would feel in your hands when I was talking about build quality. :)

    Judging by the photos, it might look "plasticy" in real life, but you could always opt for those pretty cool covers that I've been seeing around this forum. :)

    Eh, I feel that soft-touch (which is what the Evo is on the back) is really nice, so I'm not worried about it.

    I don't know how some people answer that go by just looking at pictures, and never even holding an HD2...Yes the build quality is very very similar to that of an HD2. however, the HD2's back is metal and the EVO'S is soft touch. Imo, the HD2 was one of the most solid phoned ive ever owned.

    well, regarding weight...
    i'm holding my iPhone 3GS right now...

    Incredible = 4.59oz
    iPhone = 4.8oz
    HD2 = 5.54oz
    Evo 4G = 6oz

    sooo, i'd say it's gonna feel very solid lol. i already think my iPhone is a little weighty when looking at it's size.
