    On pictures you take in the default gallery app, if you zoom it it will be blurry, but it will start the process of clarifying it. Give it a few seconds and it will look great. When you start playing with the zoom levels it will start to process the picture I guess is the word...can't really explain it.

    Edit: The reason why I assume this is is because they didn't want to slow the gallery down for when you're just flipping through tons of pictures, so it just shows it decently unless you play with it.

    but it should have a timer on it, like if you pause on a photo for 5 seconds it will start to render it.

    Well guys I am happy to say that after bothering HTC they finally conceded and overnighted me my 3rd EVO. WITH NO DEFECTS. The even threw in a free silicone case for my troubles. :D:D:D They gave me a box to ship back the defect which I happily shipped this morning. Im glad cuz RS is still sold out and who knows when they will be getting more. For all you people having the same issue as me. Just keep bugging HTC and they will concede. Good Luck!!!!



    NO Screen Separation Issues or Light Leakage yay!!!!!!!!

    Hi! I've been lurking on Android forums for quite some time now, and I'm heading to Sprint today to get an EVO! Sure hope i get a decent one without the screen problems and whatnot, 'cause my closest store is over an hour away. They were actually quite helpful, and told me to take the phone home and test out the service first so i can be sure Sprint picks up at my home and work. I'm coming from Alltel (been with them for very very very long time), but their lack of phone selection is finally getting the best of me. Their service and network has always been A+, so I'm kinda worried about switching to another provider but hope all goes well.

    Shoot Me doesn't work anymore for anyone that's updated there software? I updated today and don't really know the difference except I might get a better wifi signal at work in my basement. I lik a couple of the live wallpapers that came with the phone. So I may like that one too.

    Edit: Ok I just tried shoot me and it doesn't work. So is there something else in the Android market that does work that does the same or similar thing?

    Well, got the EVO, HW version 003, and it's sweeeeet. The touch keyboard is taking some getting used to. I've used Iphones, BB's, Treo's, even an LG Triton lol but as with anything, the keyboard will take getting used to. I'll be looking into the Droid X keyboard today to see if there's a difference. I'm just AMAZED at how much there is to do on this phone! Got AndChat IRC, Handsent, Astro File Manager, Fring/Skype, and trying to learn my way around the OS. Service is surprisingly well here at work and at home. Battery finally got too low at about 1am, but i'd been using it constantly from around 7pm so that's not "too" bad for now. Front video cam sucks, but hey, at least it's got one. Could always be my ugly mug that's making it worse ;) Overall, i'm impressed, and will be demo-ing it for one of my bosses who tends to lean towards Iphones and BB's for work use. I do wish there was a bit more configurability with email (unable to set SMTP timeout), but i'm using a seperate Gmail account as a workaround until i can find some other means. Anywho, loving the phone, can't say it enough!

    Definitely need a case, cam on the back makes me uneasy about setting it down and i'm already worried about the screen scratching since i can't keep my hands off it ;)

    Came into work right when penalty kicks were starting for the Japan/Paraguay World Cup game, and had nearly the whole office crowded around watching Sprint TV on my EVO using the kickstand. Awesome

    Get the beta of Swype if it's still available or shape writer from the marketplace you'll love typing with one of those keyboards. I never use the one that came with the phone anymore.
