    I have a 3 week old white evo ver 003 too. it also has a little light leakage at bottom. Can only be seen when pitch black.

    everything works great... Rooted and flashing any ROM perfectly. Do I want to risk getting a new one... that has slight issues with different ROMs or mods as some do???

    Exchanged the white 0003 for a black 0004. No noticeable leakage, so it looks like problem solved for me.:)

    I am thinking of moving to the Evo from BB. When the Evo came out in June there were post of problems with loose HDMI ports, screen problems with light leaks, and the battery was a mess. So has anyone noticed that the units coming out in say Dec and Jan are better than the originals that came out in June.

    Nah its probably still the luck of the draw. I got mine in august and the only thing wrong with mine is dust under the screen.

    in all manufactured products.. there will be issues...
    especially the first batch....

    but you also have to understand.. you will see and read more about problems in a forum. most come here because they have an issue to fix.

    a higher percentage are happy and dont even come here to express their satisfaction.

    To try to balance out the satisfied owners who don't post - I picked up a white EVO Hardware 0004 on Dec 16 from Radio Shack online (essentially WireFly) and no light leakage, no dust under screen, no screen ripple, and power button still above flush with the case.
    Loving this thing! So glad I didn't get the Epic.

    I got an 004 last week. No light leakage, but I am noticing the screen is starting to rise above the plastic surround in bottom left corner. Screen Separation? Doesn't cause light leakage, should I be concerned? I've got 20 something days left to watch if it gets worse. I checked for the ripple effect, nothing even when I press HARD. I love this phone btw, much better than the Hero.
  9. To answer the earlier question about multi-touch, on ANY version, download Dotty, in the android market, by Gerry Steele, it's free, and will let you know real quick if you have 3 or 5 point multitouch. It's a very basic app, that's been around for a few years, but easily answers the multitouch question. All you have to do is touch multiple fingers on the screen and it highlights the coordinates. If you can light up 5 at a time, congrats!!! You have 5 point hardware.

    What if my Evo only lights up 2 coordinates?

    I got my first one on 7/4/2010 it was a 0003 it had a little bit of leakage but otherwise was great. had a problem with the speakers crackling so just got a 0004 on 3/3/2011 and didnt notice a lot of difference. I did notice that the power button dosent work as well with my otterbox defender case, the display looks the same. both only overclocked to 1.19 stable but my new camera is really blurry. Video and still, anyone else notice this? Other than that same ol' EVO. (with clear Audio) the 0004 was way easier to root tho

    EDIT i just noticed the charge LED is ALOT Bigger. holy crap its like twice the size. anyone confirm?

    Don't know sh-t from shinola about your question; but Semper Fi! Mac
  15. First, this is a hardware 004 thread, not 003.

    Second, it would help if you described WHAT issues you are having, so we can help you.

    I have both version and there is a difference in the cameras...
    The 0004 focuses faster and has blacker blacks with a more
    natural color to it....

    the 0003 is like an older vehicle...they dont make them like
    they used! (meaning that my 0003 has an ENG .76 hboot
    and the 0004 has 2.10)

    rarity vs. faster performance is basically what it boils down to!

    My 0004 is still going strong; brother's 0003 boot loops. Mine is rooted, his isn't.
