It's only dust..
I've had my Evo since the 4th. I have had no problems at all. My battery is superb, and everything has been working perfect. Was talking with a co-worker who just got the Evo as well, and both of us were saying how we haven't had any problems at all luckily.
Of course, some how today - I checked my phone and a big ol' piece of dust is in the dead center of my screen. Obviously I do not want to return it because of that, since it is nothing major. Also I don't want to risk a small chance of getting a "dud" Evo.
My OCD is kicking in, and I can't help but to stare at it...
Anyways, I will most likely end up taking me Evo apart after work to remove that pesky piece of dust.
Just wanted to vent really.. As I said, was talking with a co worker who I talked into getting the Evo as well as his brother - so we were both talking about how we haven't had any problems.
So somehow this is my fault for even talking about it >.>

As I said, there is nothing wrong with the phone which is why I can't figure out how I got dust dead center of the screen. The screen is not lifting up or anything a long those lines.
When the phone is off you can see the spec just sitting there, and if I view any sort of bright page (white background etc.) it sticks out like a sore thumb.
I still haven't decided what I want to do, ripping the phone apart to clean it would be quick and painless.
We will see >.>

Exchange the phone... If there is a spec of dust under there now imagine what it's going to be like months from now? if one got in many more are sure to follow...

it's not OCD.
You spent GOOD MONEY on it. It has dust under the screen. That's unacceptable, because it means there's a gap. It also means there's the possibility of other problems.
Return. Or, if you think they'll laugh at you... get a whole lot of dust in it, then return.

Keep in mind if there is a break in the seal somewhere that has let the dust in you are going to see alot more issues than just some dust. I'd take it back and explain to them that it wasn't there when you purchased it and it must have a problem inside the phone with the seal.
Also don't forget to express that with the amount of money that is charged for these devises that you should be entitled to get your money's worth and that means having a device that is 100% at time of purchase or at least within the first 30 days.

when they manufacture screens and assemble them they are supposed to be in a dust free lint free environment. WHat you have is a manufacturer defect.
Dont feel bad taking it back, its not your fault.
I returned my instinct 3 times for bad screens, and my pre once for a bad pixel.

My New Evo came with one spec of dust about mid screen. I was bummed. i got home and decided to flick the screen with my finger right at the dust particle. It was just enough vibration to move the spec of dust to the bottom of the screen out of sight. I am very happy. No dust! even in direct sunlight!

I have the same problem, but the dust is very slowly accumulating at the top left corner. I took it to the Sprint store and they said that there's nothing they can do about it and that I should get a screen protector (which will not solve the problem). Do you guys think I'll actually be able to return it? Has anyone actually succeeded in doing so?
