HTC EVO 4G Problems: Power Button Area Cracking?

By Jamie Pert - Aug 17, 2010

This year we have been spoiled by a lot of amazing new smartphones, the HTC EVO 4G is undoubtedly one of these great devices, however we are hearing of a problem which is affecting quite a few users.

Apparently some EVO 4G owners are complaining that their device has cracked near to where the power button is located, we have embedded a high-resolution showing this crack at the end of this post.

It is hard to say how widespread this problem really is, however I’m sure that there are plenty of EVO 4G users out there looking for a replacement, at least 138 voters on XDADeveloper‘s poll claim that they are affected.

From what we can see HTC has not yet officially addressed the issue, therefore we will have to keep you informed as we find out more.

We would greatly appreciate your feedback in the comments section below, has your EVO 4G cracked in a similar place?
