Dirtiest brand ever?
For me, out of all the devices I've owned (iPhones, Palms, Nokias, etc), I find the Blackberry brand (playbook included) to dust a lot more and get dirty faster than everything else, making cleaning them a common chore.
Your opinions on this, crackberry?

Hmm.... I've owned pretty much everything... don't think I've really found that. I find screens on everything get smudgy. I'm amazed how clean my white Bold 9900 has stayed. Not sure...Kevin Michaluk

I did get dust under my screen on my storms but it was not much at all really. I know others had this issue much more than me. The 9900 has been dust free for the most part. I dont notice the fingerprints more on my PB over any of the other tablets and phones i have. I do keep my devices in cases and such though so i am sure that helps lol~Matt

Cleanest phone I ever had was my burgundy 8310. That little thing is still pristine.
Smudgiest phone I ever had is my iPhone 3GS.
My white Torch got dirt under the slider mechanism.
I'd KILL for a white 9900, but if I ever got one I'd put it in a case.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

Except for smudges, no major dirt issues. Besides, I always wiped mine down with alcohol and I always have a can of compressed air available.From the head MOFO in charge:

When I first read the title of this thread, my first instinct was "trojan" .I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them. - Andy Bernard

That's weird because my 9860 looks as good as it did the day I bought it a year ago. I only have to clean the screen every few days. Even the PlayBook screen stays pretty good and I only need to clean it once a day.

Only problem I've had with a smartphone is getting dust under the plastic screen with my Curve 9330 and Curve 8330. I've noticed this phenomena to occur more in plastic-non-touch-non-glass displays rather than glass touch screens.
However, a few dust particles got under my PB screen via the speaker vents.
So I guess the dirtiest brand for me would have to be BlackBerry, lol. Then again, I use those phones more than anything else so I would imagine the same with a different brand if I used them.

I think I'd have to claim Nokia as the dirtiest. I remember the one I owned how dusty it'd get. A crust of dirt and oil would always form in no time.
Honestly though, all phones get dirty. I don't want to be judgmental but it mainly goes back to how clean/cleanly is the user.

I love my BB eventhough its a Curve 8530. I have a screen protector on it with the phone snug inside a white 'case-mate' case. The black and white looks really cool plus I keep it shiny clean with a quick shot of 'pledge' furniture polish on the face and keyboard, then brushed with one of those women's make-up brushes. Works great to keep your prized BB clean and spiffy.

I've always used leather pouch slim cases (Beyza, Fortte, Sena) that cover the whole phone, so neither my BB Pearl, 8900, HTC Incredible, nor current Samsung Galaxy Nexus take on much dirt. My 2006 Pearl trackball got a bit dirty and just quit working one day.Samsung Galaxy Nexus, iPad2 and iMac. Former BB 8100 and 8900 owner.
