    They should have used the glass weave back like the Q10. Look so much better + less prone to fingerprints.
    cbosdell and Q10Bold like this.

    My guess is this came from the protective plastic they ship in. There would be an area round the logo where the plastic does not touch the back. Only a guess but think it will go in time.

    Via Z10 or Passport, whichever is to hand

    For such a beautiful and top quality product, I wish they went with a real leather back (similar to Bold 9000). I really like back for that phone. I still use it time to time and no damage or scratches after 6 years. I like it more than the back of Bold 9900.

    Mine has this also. I had also mentioned in another thread that the quality of the back material isn't that great as the corners on mine have started to wear away after only a few days of use.

    geez, that's not good if the corners are wearing as well. I don't think my OCD could stand it.

    I wonder if BlackBerry will change the build quality in the next manufacturing run. I just had my Q10 replaced with a unit built in June 2014 and it seems like a better constructed device on several fronts.

    My Passport is only 1 day old and I already start seeing the same halo around BB logo on the back! What the heck?!

    Ordered a hard shell case, but nonetheless - how is that possible on a $700 device???

    I have mine for more than a week...everything OK so far...I advice to look more on front side rather than staring at back

    it's sad...i would ask for a replacement but i m worried to get back a unit with screen, keyboard or other issues as some users noticed in other posts...so maybe i m going to live with that halo...at the end...that's just a plastic part of the phone...

    I don't think it's actually wear. I had the same after a few days. When I was wiping down my screen with a screen cleaner, I wiped the back as well. Looks new again. I think the back material just shows marks too easily.
    Hello may I ask what brand of screen cleaner do you use? Thanks

    Here it is, and the result. Realistically, any of the similar wipes would probably work.

    Maybe I'm lucky. Haven't had any issue with the back, even had something scrape on it that I thought for sure would leave a scratch but didn't. I keep it in a fleecy pocket or beer cozy most of the time when not in use tho and I wipe it on my shirt all the time so it keeps looking clean .

    I got it laminated on day two of receiving the passport,with just one day of use and feel of the rubber material on the back I was sure of it wear nd tear and cuts.believe me lamination on the back gives it a glossy finish and protects it from wear.
