HTC EVO 4G: New Epson Screens – Inferior Contrast Ratio (Video)

Today seems to be a day of HTC EVO 4G news, earleir we heard that a firmware update may launch Monday, we are now hearing that newer models of the Sprint-exclusive smartphone feature a inferior display.

The early EVO 4G’s coded ‘002’ featured screens manufactured by Novatel, whereas as newer models coded ‘003’ feature Epson displays, the video embedded at the end of the post shows that the new Epson display are duller and seem to feature a lower contrast ratio.

It is unclear why HTC decided to switch to these news Epson screens, but I doubt consumers will be happy to see that new and shiny HTC EVO 4G features a worse quality display then a 3 week old version, perhaps HTC will fix this when they release the EVO 4G firmware update.

If you check out the video below you will see that the difference is extremely noticeable, has this put you off buying an EVO 4G?
