    So I just got my first windows phone, the 8X by HTC, the previous day. Its back is a finger magnet :( (It's Callifornian Blue);

    So... Has anyone tried to clean the back, yet? If so how? Thanks

    I have the black 8x and it seems impervious to fingerprints. Weird that the blue would be so different. The only "dirt" I notice is some lint from my pocket every so often. Not sure what to clean it with though.

    I've had the 8x in California Blue for a week now and the back is immaculate which is impressive as I work in a rather dusty/dirty warehouse

    I just tried cleaning my blue 8x with an alcohol lens wipe. It cleared up the black marks on the corners a little but they're still noticeable. Shame.
