    Hey everyone,

    I'm gonna take the plunge and get a Z10. As an ex-webOS user I can't wait to get back to a gesture only OS..Anyway, the white looks pretty cool. But worried that it won't hold up and get dirty and grubby looking quickly.

    Anyone have extended experience using a white one? What do you think?

    Hello and welcome!
    I have had my white Z10 since April. Still pristine. Make sure you wash your hands frequently and put a case on that bad boy. No problem with the color holding up. It's a wipeable plastic type finish so don't worry about the color getting dirty.

    When I had mine it was fine, unlike the black one it isn't soft to touch it was just white plastic and didn't get blue when putting it in my jeans

    As far as I've heard is:
    The backing cover is more glossy T black cover feels like semi soft rubber.
    There's something BlackBerry does that no one else does, make a phone that feels right in your hands. That's pretty much the only problem with the white,as for getting dirty, someone else can answer that.

    My favourite would be the white siding and with a black back.

    Get the black battery door. Thinking about doing that, then I can change them when I want. To me the white actually does not feel that bad. Of course, I keep mine in a case so that lessens the chance of it getting dirty

    I'm not a big phone case guy. I like the feel of the actual phone in my hand. Sounds like the white will be OK. Like the ideaof the black battery door on a white phone.

    I have had the white for 11 months and use only a BlackBerry pouch. I have never had to clean it. Looks a white today as it did on the first day.

    I'm sure Jaydee will take exception but I think a white phone is as practical as white bicycling shorts (popular for a while in the 80's I think!). Besides, if Jaydee drops hers in the snow, she will never find it!

    Once you go black you'll never go back, even though white is such a delight!

    Oil, grease, dirt, and anything else I have thrown at it wipe away cleanly. Only gripe I have is that it's gotten a few nicks in it (and it's never been dropped and always pocketed by itself). I can't say that the black would have held up differently though.

    I would suggest you to go for a Black Z10. As mentioned by lot of people here, the back of black Z10 feels just right in hands.. Or else, make a Oreo cookie out of your Z10(you know what I mean fella) ! remember Kevin M Oreo? lol

    Thankfully the white Z10 (as with most phones) is easy to clean. I use eyeglass lens wipes. It looks as good now as it did 9 months ago.

    I Z10!

    Nah its a different material stays clean just fine. I switched it up for the black OEM battery door just because its a better material and well looks better as a oreo IMO.
