I guess the light leak and the slight gap of the LCD screen to its body is all common in this type of design you will notice the gap if you look closely below the front cam.

here is a sample picture of the phone from gsm:

You cant hardly notice the gap. its a paper thin like gap.

HTC said its normal in this kind of design... since my supplier did check it with HTC because all of his phone have it.. its not noticeable and big deal to most but still it depends on the user how you handle your phone. overall user experience is great and i dont mind this issue anymore since for me its much better than incredible S.

The light leak seems to be on all models, just checked and compared with a salesperson at vodafone. It's a very minor issue though, people shouldn't be turned off by the slight defect, you will only notice it at an angle in total darkness.

Has bought it 2 months ago. Drawbacks are: no front camera disadvantage when using skype, sound not great. Advantage; pinch for zooming, easy to surf on the net, practical, good display resolution, applications that are downloadable are good.

> In reply to [deleted post]Instead of asking anyone in here...why just don't send it back where you bought it and ask if they can replace it with another one.

The previous desire had a great SAR value.. Does this one has the same high value or is this better ?

hey HTC Desire S users: is this happening to your devices, too ??? tell us please !

"...the paint or the exterior finish was not up to standards, we saw the paint fade from several places with just regular use, within a week. We are not too happy with this fact and are unsure whether or not people can claim warranty on such units."

> In reply to marius @ 2011-04-28 12:54 from Me0A - click to readhi everyone.. i really like the specs of desire s and m looking forward to buy one from flipkart but m confused about the aluminium body part. when i checked the review of desire s in igyaan, it shows some sort of shading colour below the capacitive menu buttons and on the left side of the front body... so i wanna confirm whether the phone has some serious colour fading problem after some weeks of usage

The leak is barely noticable and can also be spotted above the orange led when charging. It feels a bit like the glass shifted a bit as it isn't perfectly alined with the body of the phone. You wouldn't notice this without focusing on the issue so I don't mind this ať all if other models have this slight problem as well, I would just consider replacing a phone dropped by someone before my purchase
, that slight scratch had to get there somehow :D

Could someone confirm the light leakage from the capacitive keys under pitch black conditions? Thanks, as i noticed a a barely visible scratch on the back and would like to rule out a drop and a returning hassle
