    Okay, so maybe I'm crazy, but I just love how things look and this is driving me insane. When I bought my lumia 900, about 3 weeks ago, It was this nice, bright blue. I'm noticing a darker shade and more cosmetic defects. I made a dent in the housing already, but there are several light marks in different areas. Also, I dropped it in frosting (LONG story) and the microphone port is all white, but still works great. So, I ask, is your lumia getting darker?

    not lighter, but the plastic doesn't have that soft feel/look anymore. More of a hard plastic feel/look

    I've only had black and grey phones, but I did noticed on a few of my grey Palm Treo's that the grey does seem to get darker over time. I don't think it's anytime unusual for the color to change slightly over time.

    It might be because you are on auto-brightness, maybe it thinks you are in a low lit room?

    Umm...no. The device isn't as sexy as it used to be and it is driving me insane because I use my phone A LOT and I'm a salesman for windows phone, so I need something to refer to. I don't have OCD, sorry.
