    I really want to get a white 920 when they are released, however i have a few concerns. Can anyone with a white Lumia 900 help me?

    -Are scratches very noticeable? I know polycarbonate is scratch resistant, but it is still possible; dirt can get in the scratch and show up against the white.
    -Does the surface itself get dirty? Aside from scratches, does it get goobery and gross from everyday activities?
    -How does the gloss hold up? The color goes all the way through, but the glossy finish does not...if there is a knick is the difference in finish super noticeable?

    Thanks for the help!!

    (if i decide against white, i'll either go for red or black, and even then i can't choose!)

    If you don't have case for your phone then yes. Scratches with some wear and tear will show.

    I dont have a Nokia but had a white phone.

    Polycarbonate isn't really scratch resistance, it just means that behind the White, it will be more white. So it won't be very noticeable.

    I'd like to add something that I've personally noticed:

    Even the matte finish of Lumia's becomes glossy after a while especially on the sides. Your hands will eventually smooth the surface to an extent.

    I have a white lumia 900 since April with no cover. While it does get scratches, you really cant notice them at all. The only place you notice is in the metal plate that has the Carl Zeiss name by the camera. Love the white gloss, which continues strong.

    I have the Cyan Blue... still looks perfect after all this time... Yes, the matte texture does eventually smooth out. :)
