    Default Fewer worries about scratching the lens

    I don't think we'll have to worry about scratching the lens so much. Have a look at pictures 16 & 18 in the Engadget gallery (no way to direct link to them):



    In #16 you can see a small gap between the aluminum ring and the lens, and in #18 you see that the alu ring comes off with the plastic case part. Looks to me like this will provide some much needed protection for the lens. Sure, you'll still be able to scratch it, but it'll be a lot harder.

    Looks like the lens will be easily replaceable

    That isn't the lens. It's the filter over the lens.

    sorry for being off topic but anyone notice the lack of a sim or microsim slot? does that mean that sprints lte network won't be using sims like verizon?

    I was actually wondering the same thing myself. It looks like the cover at the bottom of the phone comes off as well so maybe it could hidden there?

    The SIM is embedded. How hard is it to get to? Dunno.

    Unlike the EVO 4G, The plastic that covers the lens is slightly recessed and less likely to be scratched when the handset sits on a table.

    I dont think i've ever seen any Sprint device with an sim or microsim. They use CDMA and they dont need sims.

    This phone is also LTE so that's why it has a SIM.

    One thing that I believe is worth mentioning with the replaceable lens cover is that this could open up the possibility awesome camera accessories. I'm envisioning replacement covers with integrated lenses, like fish eye, etc. We could see some cool stuff with this.

    ^I agree!

    That would be bad ***. Is there a picture up anywhere of the OTHER side of the top cover?

    Someone said there are vital "organs" on the removable portion of the phone....Dunno, though...

    hopefully not, that would ruin my secret plan of being the top accessory maker for the new evo

    Y it would be nice to be able to replace it. But in the end i will look at the beautiful screen alot more than the back of the phone.

    PLus i will prob have it in a case anyway.

    It looks lke the cover has electronic contacts underneath it. I'm going to say that a custom replacement would not be an option. Either way, if I don't like it I would purchase a replacement and paint it. I could also just use a product not unlike skinit that would cover it up nicely.

    it looks like it has more the one antana on the cover. so i would say it's not just the NFC but also maybe the LTE antana on there.
