    I've always been curious.. before getting a q5 I was thinking about getting a RED Q5 because it's less likely to have stains on. But I was left with a white one bc it was the only color available..
    I've seen other blackberry models (olderones) getting yellowish after a period of using..

    Does this happen on the q5?

    I haven't seen any topics like this so I posted one

    Thanks!

    Well I don't use a Q5 but I use a white Z30 (Which is seemingly the same considering my friend has a white Q5 and I've compared the feel of them).

    I've had the phone for about five months now and it's still pale white.

    I have been looking at a white Z30 for a while and had this concern.

    No they don't as far as I've seen. Look at used ones and you'll see

    You should also clean them every once in a while. I clean mine once a week.

    What do you use to clean your BlackBerry device?

    I don't have a Q5.
    I've had my white Q10 for 2 years and no "yellowing" on it. A friend's legacy OS white Bold did suffer from that though.

    You can get whatever color you want.

    You can change the housing afterwards too.

    It is good because some sellers seem to charge extra for the specialty colors such as red and pink.

    Even if it was to happen, it's not a cause for concern. You can fix it.

    I don't know about the Q5 specifically but the yellowing of white electronics has been going on for a long time.

    Any WHITE Q5 phones getting yellowish or dirty after using for a long time?-yellowapple2.jpg
