    Well, went and picked up my dad's evo for him today and decided to check the hardware version. It turns out to be a 0004 with what i assume to be the epson screen since the rosie is "blacker". Just thought you guys might like to see.

    Ok, my apologies for taking so long, I went out with the family for a while, and after checking it out thoroughly, i noticed a few things

    Power button is higher, it is noticeably higher than my ver 0003
    Volume buttons are higher as well
    His capacitive buttons vibrate a bit better than mine
    Epson screen

    HTC hasn't addressed these things on my dads phone

    Screen separation is still present
    Some light leakage is still present

    So, to wrap it up, there isn't really too much improvement and he is being (for a lack of a better word) a baby, so i will have to mess with it some more when he is away.

    For some reason i keep getting a database error when trying to upload a picture so it will have to wait again

    This may be a benefit to Sprint's delay in allowing me to upgrade. I planned to get one today but have to wait until the 9th. Hopefully that means I'll get the new hardware.

    Eh, i still kinda prefer my 0003 simply because i don't have any seperation or light leakage, but i wish mine had that raised power button.

    When you press the home or search button with moderate pressure, does the screen have a sort of ripple effect?

    Raised power button? You mean they've improved the one on top? This is good news that I hadn't heard.

    After checking my screen ype, it seems i have an epson too, but his is greyer than mine. I have a screen protector on mine which is probably the difference

    I received a hardware version 004 last week as a replacement phone sent from Sprint. I had a hardware version 002 that I bought on launch day that the vibrate motor went out on. I also had to have the screen replaced twice in my 002 as it had screen separation after about 3 months and then the new screen had several dead pixels.

    The only noticeable difference is that fact that there is ZERO light leakage at the bottom and the screen does seem a bit more 'grey'.

    My power and volume buttons are getting harder and harder to press as the days go by, so pretty soon i might need to take my evo back :(

    Has the hardware cpu/ram been upgraded at all in version 004? Is there a spec sheet comparing the different hardware revisions 001-004? I'd love to see what has been changed.

    Lockbot Pro and you will only have to use your power button for actually powering down the device. Saves wear and tear on that power button.

    That will definitely not happen, ever.

    If they ever change the specs of the Evo - they will simply be releasing a new phone instead.

    K, I snagged Lockbot Pro and actually...it's awesome. It's like WidgetLocker in that it allows you to use the volume keys to wake up the phone (hence not using the power button). It also lets you change the lock style (iPhone, Hero, Eclair, Froyo, X10 and Galaxy) and lets you do cool things like shake the phone gently to unlock it. So far I really like it.
