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:

(…)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.

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!
