    I absolutely hate my Passport's sticky black back. It looks patchy and attracts dust. Can anyone suggest a cleaner?

    Silicone lubricant should do it.

    Mine too got sticky. After a while you can rub off all the rubbery stuff, left with plasticky back.

    Really? If this is true, it's poor QC on a £500 phone. I must say, I was disappointed by how easily by black Passport would bend/twist corner to corner when I got it.

    Look tough but...... 1st year of use got double typing issue and got replaced. 2nd year of use, Bendgate issue, third year of use. Sticky back, rusty logo and the worst is sos only signal mobile network. My passport can no longer connect to mobile network. I still use it using Hotspot WiFi from my secondary device. The os is great though.

    N.B. All of the issue are common issue, and yes you are right. The quality is sucks for premium phone like passport.

    I also use isopropyl rubbing alcohol on all of my devices and it looks and feels great. Even both of my AT&T Passport devices.

    I use the leather skin with a leather sleeve combo in navy blue.
    I'm not a holster guy, but it should be as good product as the others.
    I have a friend that even made his PPSE back with snake skin (Boa IIRC) and man that made Passports a very luxury thingy! ;p

    Try hoasen@gmail.com if you want to contact the guy, he will answer all your questions quickly and could provide you some pictures if needed.

    A good seller from my point of view, with good communication, good products at good prices!

    Just out of curiosity, do you mind sharing a photo or two of your passport in its current state?

    The Passport is one of the strongest mobile hardware ever made. Bendgate? How? Sticky back? That was the purpose, wasn't it? For better grip. There are tons of comments for other phones being too slippery. And b'coz of it's width a more pronounced matte overlay was needed. But yes, the SE's back is better than the OG's, aesthetically. In any case tho, most Passports are used with a case. Here is mine:

    You should try to add to it that leather skin on back! It made it even better!
    If you pick up in black, you have even the Bold era souvenirs with true leather and not the plastic we had that we liked anyway!

    Thanx for the reply mate. I did mail the guy. And he responded back too, might get a Paypal link for the order. As I'm facing some issues with the payment gateway. Will update once I receive the holster. Cheers!
