Changing the Red Highlights of the HTC EVO

Most of you will know about the red highlights in the hardware design of the HTC EVO 4G. Although, we think HTC made a good choice by adding some colour to the dark grey phones, it might get a little boring after a while. XDA member XITruthiX posted about these photoshopped graphics, made by a friend of his. You can see them in the article’s thumbnail.

In the thread, someone suggested a white EVO, which would also be very cool:

An interesting side-note is the post by XDA member Geniusdog254 about the colour highlights HTC is using:

Originally posted by Geniusdog254

(…)I’ve noticed 2 patterns so far.

#1: Their (HTC’s, ed.) GSM devices (Aria, HD2 Mini) have thus far had yellow innards. CDMA devices (Evo, Incredible) have had red.

#2: Lower to mid-range devices (Aria, HD2 Mini) have had yellow, whereas the higher end (Evo, Incredible) have had red.

There’s probably a few more patterns to pick out, but that’s all I’ve noticed so far.

Both patterns seem pretty obvious, and time will tell how HTC will continue with this design.

So what do you think? Are you satisfied with the red colour, or would you prefer another colour instead? Drop a comment here or visit the thread for more inspiration!

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
