HTC EVO screens having quality control issues?

June 14, 2010: 6:26 PM ET

That monster 4.3 inch screen isn't only the EVO's biggest asset, it might be its biggest curse.

Some reports are coming in that the Sprint's highly-acclaimed EVO 4G Smartphone may have some screen problems.

Last week, there were isolated reports that the EVO's screen was popping out of place, perhaps due to faulty glue.  Unfortunely Engadget used this guy's screen as an example"

I'm not sure I'd trust that this guy is the average smartphone usage tester.

Other people have complained about the issue as well.  Sprint says that if you are having this issue with an EVO, return it to a Sprint store for an exchange.

Additionally, if you aren't holding an EVO or its cousin, the Verizon Droid Incredible, and the device isn't grounded, the capacitive touch screen may not register your touch.  Videos below.
