    I want to get a EVO 4g, but after seeing the compareison photos of the epson screen versus the novatel screen I really don't want the epson screen. Am I doomed?

    sagedil: I'm not sure why you'd say that, there's a tangible difference between the two screens. Nothing wrong with someone wanting to be sure they get the better screen. My girlfriend and I both got Evos on June 5 and she has the Novatek while I have Epson. Her screen is definitely better.

    dman777: Unfortunately, I don't know what the deal is with HTC regarding the screens. Hopefully they'll start using the Novatek screens again soon.

    Brother if you havent gotten a version 2 with a Epson screen first, YOU WONT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!!!!

    Get the EVO!!!!!!

    Its the people like me who got a launch day Evo that this will drive nuts and send our OCD through the roof! Right ladies and gent who have launch day Evo's?

    Personally im waiting for 2.2 to update before I decide to send back my version 2 or keep the new version 3 they send me tommorow.

    Post 69 booya, as Mclovin would say "chicky chicky yea!!"

    Is there a way to tell which screen you have? Sure if you have another one to compare it to it might be easy, assuming they are 1 of ea. Is there any way with just one phone to know?

    thnx.

    yeah, check this video out. basically the Nova screen fades in and out when you change the brightness while the Epson screen is instant:

    For whatever reason, the Epson screens are getting a majority of the better reviews on other forums. Probably because they are the only ones to be able to break the 30FPS limit...as of now that is. Could be a reason HTC made the switch.

    Here is my response to another thread about the same topic. It is becoming rather annoying as I believe a lot of misinformation is be disseminated.

    "I think that guy's review/video and the host of followup blogs blindly based of of that video are horrid/unproven generalizations and an overall crock of sh#t. I happen to have a version 3 Epson screen and while I have seen some images that look a little bland (I am very hard to please, a real stickler for a nice screen), 98% of all the images are sharp, vibrant, and full of contrast with realistic colors. I was recently using a paint program with the Kids and the colors are blinding. I showed some of them to my wife today, I used a couple as screensavers, and her comment was that the colors were too bright/loud and would hurt her eyes after a while. I remember thinking to myself, well if this screen is dull, then the version twos must be super amoleds.
