    When I press the lower left corner of my screen it moves in a little bit. The other three corners seem to be firmly attached to whatever is beneath. It doesn't cause any problems with the touch input, just something I noticed.

    Anyone else see this on their EVO?

    Thanks

    I don't seem to have this issue. The screen doesn't move regardless where I press.

    The only place that there is a slight give is on the top left of the battery cover. It seems to have about a 1mm play, but it doesn't creak or anything, so I'm not complaining.

    When I push it in and hold it it'll stay in for a bit and then slowly pop back out. My guess is that there is some kind of double-sided tape holding the screen down. My concern is that over time it'll get worse and create a gap where dust and water can get in. At this point I'm afraid to put my zagg screen protector on. Guess I'll take it in to the Sprint store and see if they can repair it.

    Did you take yours in? If so, what happened? I have the SAME problem and its a little irritating.. i definitely dont want to put on my screen protector til this is fixed... Also.. do you happen to have a buzz when people are talking if you hold the device to your ear? Sounds like a bad speaker or something to me (although the speaker phone speaker sounds great!)

    Down in the bottom left corner by the home button. It just a little... but I have the same concerns of it getting worse over time.

    I have it. You should check out this thread... LINK: http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...e-buttons.html

    Others in the thread are having the same issue. "The glass is raised up ever so slightly in the bottom left corner and if I press it back down, the light leakage goes away for a couple of seconds until the glass rises back up again." (post #45)

    FWIW, I think your "corner of the screen is loose" issue and the bottom "light leakage" issue are related to an adhesive problem along the bottom (especially below the home button).

    You'll see proaud's caulk solution in the thread and my attempt as well. (post #91) Fyi, the caulk fixed my light leakage, but the lower left corner is still raised slightly above the bezel and "moves a little bit" like yours. I hope this helps.

    Haven't taken it in yet. I'll try to get to the Sprint store this weekend. No buzz from the earpeice either. Everything else about the device seems perfect.

    Doug, I think you are right on the money. Don't think I'm going to caulk the phone though. The light leakage doesn't bother near as much as the idea that eventually I'll have dust/water under the screen or that the screen will totally seperate over time.

    IT'S A VERY SIMPLE FIX, This topic was brought up on another forum and it was decided that the screws need to be tightened on some handsets. It seems some left the factory with screws not fully tightened this is also causing some of the bottom end light leaks as well. You will see the tiny black screws in each corner once the battery cover is removed. I think you can buy these special star drivers at Radio Shack or just take the handset in to a Sprint service center for tightening.

    You wouldn't happen to have a link would you? From the photos I've seen it looks like an issue with the adhesive failing. I'd be happy to learn that a few screws just needed to be tightened.

    This didn't work for me. YMMV. Its a T5 screwdriver on the bottom two screws when you've removed the back panel.

    I took it to the Sprint store and they said the adhesivethinfy is coming off because of the spray thingy they used to put on the zagg screen protector

    Didn't work for me either. I tried the 'tightening the screws' technique before I did the caulk and it did nothing. Sorry. I wish it would have worked! I'm still thinking the problem is the adhesive.

    Another reason NOT to put the Zagg on until after the problem is fixed. I don't want Sprint trying to say its due to something I did.

    I will take it to best buy, where they put on the zagg, to see what they'll do about it... its been getting looser at higher portions of the left side by the days

    If this is true, I'll definitely be getting the Seidio protector. It doesn't use a liquid based solution.

    I don't think its the screen protector. I have the same thing where the bottom left screen is raised up a little and I don't use a screen protector.

    Ditto here. Bottom corners are slightly raised.

    Thought I might share my expierence.

    I also had the same problem. Bottom left on mine. I took it into Sprint yesturday and the lady said she was not sure if it was a problem or not. Needless to say I did not accept that answer and the Rep said she would place me on the waiting list for Evo's and when they get to me they would call. Well today I get the call to come in because the had the Evo in stock for me but they would need to see if the screen being loose was "actually a problem" .

    So I drive down there and ask directly for the manager and calmly explain my problem and show her my device. She apologized and stated that the screen was not supposed to do that (imagine that lol) and she quicly exchanged my device no questions asked.

    However when looking at the screen you can definitly see that the screen is held by adhesive and mine was coming loose.

    All in all i did get a replacement and the manager even replaced the Sprint screen protector for free since I bought the orinigal one from them and had my unit replaced.

    My advice is if your screen is loose to replace it before it gets worse and lets dust in or stops functioning correctly.

    Both of our Evos are slightly raised at the bottom edge and have the reported light leakage under the bottom buttons. Mine also has faint light leakage around the entire screen.

    Also, does anyone know if adding that caulk as someone mentioned in another post would void our warranties/TEP? Thanks.

    I took my phone in today to the Sprint store. They looked at the loose corner, told me that they hadn't worked on an EVO before and it might take a while. Less than 20 minutes later I was out the door with an all new housing, all corners firmly secured. Super easy.

    Wow. So they actually repaired the phone? Interesting.

    I assume they simply gave him a new phone.
