    Default White Moto X Holding Up?

    I tell myself that I'm waiting for Moto Maker to come to VZW, but hey, I'm impatient. I'm thinking about picking up a white Moto X, but I'm wondering how they will hold up without a case (which I don't want to use). Any of you who have had a white one, how has it held up? Has it become really grungy or stained from your jeans?

    I so want this phone...

    I don't want to speak for anyone but typically white plastic will show dirt sooner as opposed to later. If you're not planning to keep it in a case I think its reasonable to expect keeping it looking new may be somewhat of a challenge.

    I've had a white Moto X AT&T since day one. Dirt isn't so much a problem as wear. I pretty much hold my phone the same way all the time so my fingers are always wearing down the same spots on the back. In the right light these spots give the appearance of being dirty when they are actually not. Not super prevalent but like I said, in the right light it annoys me a bit.

    Disagree. Old white note 2 is still perfectly white and I didn't have a case on it often.

    Now days plastics hold up quite well. I would say go for it. Never had a white phone yellow or not get dirt on it that wouldn't clean off.

    No problems here. I went with the white version over moto maker due to getting it for 100 bucks at best buy by using a gift card I had. No signs of dirt or wear that I can tell. Love the look of the white model.

    I have a white Moto x and it does get a little bit of dirt every once in a while, but this particular kind of white plastic doesn't seem to get stained like others in that I can just wipe off any dirt with water and a paper towel. No regrets with the white choice!

    White X here. Hate cases. Didn't even buy one. Looks clean as ever after 2 weeks.
    I was to impatient to wait for moto maker. Actually glad I went white. Love the looks.

    How are the whites still? Are the front and back a little different in white shades? Or is mine just a little dirty?

    The front has a glossy finish and the back has a matte finish so upon close inspection they do appear to be different shades of white. It isn't anything I truly notice and doesn't bother me a bit.

    I've had my DE for a month or so and the white back is still pristine. No case, keep it in my jeans pocket.

    Had mine since right after the phone was released, holding up very well. I've had to wipe it off once on the back since I got it.
