    I own them, I get it lays on that edge.

    But for me, not fine, I always have too much opportunity to bang or scratch the lens that way. Either picking it up, putting it down, or from crap on the table.

    Besides, with the kickstand, it's a don't care.

    i have a rubber case.. it adds a little more cushion ... i am ok with that... to keep the lens from touching the surface.

    but I was referring to the design of the body respect to where the speaker outlet is... and how it might be affected buy the tilt of the body... from the camera lens.

    Huh? I'm pretty sure the speaker placement on the HTC One X and the HTC Evo 4G LTE are exactly the same. It's on the backside, about half a centimeter up from the bottom.

    Oh, and Dan, it may be nitpicky but I just wanted to fill you in, I think people are being precise about "camera lens" and so the glass (plastic?) that you see on the phone, that's not actually the "lens" of the camera technically speaking. The true "lens" from an optics perspective is the little bubble looking thing, 1-3mm big at the center of the camera. What you see on the surface of the phone is really just flat glass/plastic without any light refracting properties. Maybe it's just easier (and less technically inaccurate) to call it the "camera glass" or "camera surface" or something. :)

    you are correct .. i had thought the onex speaker was in a different location...
    but the Evo1 speaker looks to be lower.. and one opening.. which still looks just in the area that might be more covered up by the surface. yes, i am being nitpicky here too.. and it might not even be an issue... i have yet to get my hands on it.

    camera lens /glass/surface... yes..it is not the "real" focus lens... but the outside clear cover.. I think we all know this..., but you are correct. ;)
    whatever.. the frame of it.. helps to guard it from it actually touching the desk surface.

    I just call the transparent camera lens cover the lens. It's quicker and easier even though it's wrong, sorry if I created chaos doing it.

    Since were on the topic about the camera I've been disappointed with the way some photos look from the One X (Imagesense) posted from a HTC blog and pocketnow.com. Some photos look kind of grainy especially in lowlight, some do look good in the daylight but they're not great. I have a feeling this will be the case with the EVO LTE, I hope I'm wrong.

    Rush, thanks for adding the "I like it but the non removable battery scares the heck out of me", since I am the only vote I'm guessing you put that there for me!;):D

    Lol, I should've had it as an option, but I guess I was too busy getting the thread started. There will be other members who will choose that option as well.

    I'm starting to lean over to the "worry" side of having a non-removable battery. :(

    My biggest fear is killing the battery, I could live with having to charge constantly it would just be a big inconvenience but if the battery goes what do you do? I have killed at least five batteries in the last three years.

    They do. I changed out an iPhone battery. You pretty much have to disassemble the entire device.

    I noticed tho that on the new iPhone 4s, the screw requires a 5-point star shape to turn (not torx), and it's teeny tiny. Maybe a future kit would come with that tool though.

    On the Evo LTE, there's the issue of the unibody aluminum frame.... so you have to pull out the 'guts' of the phone to get to the battery. Might not be so easy.

    Some sites sell that tool for the iPhone along with the battery.

    Can not wait for the LTEvo teardown.

    One of the main reason why I adore this phone, is the fact that its on Sprint. :)

    Plus, the added features that the One X doesn't have. Its like getting a phone that you always wanted.

    The back speaker I use mainly for speaker phone calls, thus my phone is face down. I am doing any audio/video action. I will be sporting buds. Being able to handbrake true HD vids and watch on my phones HD res screen. The rear speaker isn't gonna do much justice IMHO on any HD device.

    The EVO 4G LTE is one of the best looking phones I've ever seen. I cannot wait to get it!

    i have to say that is the BEST POSSIBLE explanation i've heard. You are prolly sooooo right, if it were slightly off due to different hues ppl would complain about that. But truthfully i can't like that black back no matter WHAT reason i come up with. Even THIS would be better in my opin....

    [​IMG]

    But don't misunderstand, i STILL am looking forward to this phone more than any other ever :*)

    Actually, make that lower part anodized blue and my Yankee Doodle Dandy side would be totally loving the red, white and blue!!

    A white top and black bottom is a likely probably since there have been rumors circulating about a white LTEvo. For the prior two Evos, you can pick up spare parts (I have a spare battery cover for my Evo 3D) and you'd probably be able to score a spare white top to secure to the black LTEvo.

    Still wish that the top plastic matched the bottom plastic, but oh well. :)

    I'm going to be looking for those decal things (skins??) that other phones get, unless I just case the beast.
