In the past the HTC EVO 4G from Sprint has had a few problems, the most recent being with the power button area cracking, as Jamie Pert reported in an article from a few days ago. We now have word that a new issue has cropped up with the micro-USB port.
Chris Ziegler from Engadget was tipped off by a few readers about a number of EVO users suffering from this issue – much like the one experienced by the Nokia N900. The problem is that the handset will often stop charging or charge intermittently
Without power you have a very expensive paperweight, that’s what Ziegler believes, and he is right. This could become a much bigger issue than it currently is, so we will need to keep a closer eye on this was as it develops.
HTC has responded to this current micro-USB port issue on both the HTC and Sprint community pages on their websites and informs owners that although this is a small issue it will still be covered under the standard 12-month warranty.
