More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative.

White Evo with Black Battery Door Spotted at XDA

The Android device looks pretty neat with it’s now two tone sporty look although some members have joked it looks like an Oreo, or as one member put it: an ‘OrEVO’…..(*groan*)
If you’re worried about having to fork out for a battery cover, some members have reported that if you ask very nicely at a Sprint store that they may just give you a battery door for your Evo. If not, then why not ask around the forum to see if another member is willing to swap?
