    Exactly why I stuck with the black. The white looks great but not willing to get denim stains all over it! Thanks for confirming.

    Check out your local craigslist posts - you could probably just find someone who's willing to swap instead of waiting for Google .

    Maybe the dye in those jeans is strong? Mine looks fine after two days spending some time in my pocket (though most time on my desk).

    I'm betting he's wearing raw denim.

    Default Re: White Nexus dirty already

    I have the white version and have the phone in my jeans at all times without a case at the moment, I'm also involved in construction so plenty of dust and dirt when I go out to inspect jobs and the phone is still as white as it was Monday

    I can never get a white phone. Sooner or later it may show dirt and look worse than the same dirt on a black phone would.

    don't have a picture of it i was at work but i just used some eye glass cleaner on the back and the blue streaks came right off so thats one good thing about the material that the phone is made of.

    You could always change the backplate to a black one.

    I don't know how you manage that, I keep my Gnex in an otterbox and you wouldn't believe the amount of dust that gets INSIDE the case

    White moto X is the same way, picks up stains pretty easily. I had the phone in my pocket wearing blue khaki shorts and it got blue streaks on the phone. Comes right off with rubbing alcohol though.

    I ended up buying a super thin case off amazon for $6 that I use occasionally and take off when I'd rather my phone be invisible in my pocket. (Very similar to the Ringke slim, which is only $10 right now for the N5)

    I always get Black phones.
    I don't really understand the point of the White I guess... since it still has a black front.
