    The dreaded stain has hit my phone i think..Its not very bad but being white it easily shows up in the correct light.

    Any way to remove? :(

    An alcohol pad/swab will do wonders, but excessive use will harm the finish. I've used them to remove stains on my white 900 and 920.
    First party accessories are my jam.

    Be careful not to use anything with abrasives, which some car cleaners have. You could end up with swirl marks in the finish of your phone!

    There is a strange stain on the back of my black phone. It almost looks like a grease stain, except that it doesn't clean off with anything I have tried. Granted, I have only really tried soap and some water, but still. It almost looks like the matte finish is rubbing off, but I doubt that's the case. The area it is located isn't even a "high traffic" area of the phone...

    I have the same stains on my matte black as well. Above the camera and a line an inch below the "C" in Carl.

    Only had it 2-3 days and have been very careful with it.

    Must be the heat melding through?

    What about the Mr. Clean magic eraser? You might give that a go lightly if the alcohol swab doesnt work!

    I got those too. Hot breath and microfiber cloth took it right off.
