A Concerning Amount of EVO Users Report Power Button Crack

According to a recent poll on XDA, more than a quarter of the users of the HTC EVO 4G (Update: 34%) report that the area around the power button is cracked. This is a concerning amount of users, and we are quite surprised about the hardware flaws HTC is having recently. Users report about a crack between the power button and the front of the device. Even the smallest pressure could probably cause the plastic material to break, as many members haven’t even dropped the phone a single time. Even though it doesn’t bother everyone, it is a design flaw which should not be ignored, seeing it is a high-end phone with a pretty heavy price-tag.

Some Sprint stores offer a replacement, but other stores call it a ‘cosmetic’ issue, and do not offer the ability to replace it. However, if this issue gets more known, Sprint may take actions to help users with this issue. Other forums report this problem too, so it will probably not take too long before the issue gets more known.

So do you notice this crack too? Or don’t you have any problems at all? Make sure to add your vote to the poll, and post a comment to the thread, so we have total view of how many people are facing this issue.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
