    I had some dust, wiped it with hand and got a small chip on the back cover. This was the first phone where the build quality, meant everything.

    it's just so phenomenal with steel all around, soft back, dual sepaker, etc.

    So just a warning. ; (

    Still by far 10/10 best blackberry, or electronic device I've ever had period. I put it above n64 xpansion pak + gold ocarina of time.

    I can probably get a new back cover from somewhere I think.

    The chip can't be felt, it is just psychological because after reading all the horror stories I felt good having a flawless one.

    Note on that is I don't know anyone who bought from Amazon, who had problems. Just Digital River/shopblackberry they may/may not have resolved those problems.

    I went with Amazon to minimize risk, but beside the passport debacle have heard nothing bad about shopblackberry. Ordered a playbook in December 2012, and it still works flawlessly. There's +1 for Digital River/Shopblackberry

    That's good advice. I can't believe the quality would be such that cleaning it would cause a flaw or defect.

    Did you wipe it with sandpaper?

    Have imgur link in bottom, not quality issue as it was probably sand. Sand will scratch gorilla glass too

    I'm thinking that this defect was present on the phone and you merely dislodged an existing chip by wiping it. Wiping alone shouldn't remove material from the back unless you are using something sharp or abrasive.

    Not picky just never seen anything so perfect, now it slightly imperfect. Still best phone,

    and I used my hand to wipe it. O well probably was there already, it's w.e \

    Glad something like Passport and BB10 even exists tbh, I remember the 4s days when BB was invisible.
