HTC Evo 4G hits screen problems

Dodgy display strikes HTC's stateside iPhone 4 rival

The world’s first 4G handset has already hit difficulties, with many users reporting screen problems - the glass beginning to separate from the main body of the device.

Currently only available in the US, the HTC Evo 4G’s problems seem to stem from possible glue weaknesses, causing the glass on the screen to loosen from its mount on the phone.

Evo owners have taken to phone forums to vent their frustration, making it increasingly evident that the problems aren’t just limited to a few isolated cases.

Despite selling well on launch day (though not as well as we were led to believe), these glitches are sure to make many would-be buyers dubious of the Evo’s reliability, which, with the release of the iPhone 4 just around the corner, is a serious problem.

So far there’s been no official word from HTC, but we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on how these early issues affect its chances of competing with the iPhone 4 Stateside. We’ll keep you posted.
