    If the white L930 offered to you has a matte polycarbonate finish, it will be resistant to dirt. But if you frequently keep in places where it gets in contact with a material with a different color, e.g. a black leather pouch with a, your jeans pocket or a blue cloth case, the color of that material will be "transferred" to the points of contact (especially the corners) of your phone in the long run.

    I'm not sure if this is the same for glossy polycarbonate finishes.

    I've got a glossy white 920 and the matte white 930; neither of mine have become dirty, but I keep them in tailored fabric microfibre-lined sleeves from FitBag in Germany and I'm not a mucky bugger.

    In that case, I'm sure a spot of Swarfega from time to time* will keep it looking white!

    * Disclaimer: obviously don't Swarfega your phone, kids!

    They don't get dirty that easy, but some substances may stain on the polycarbonate (eg. ink), or like the other guy said, repetitive contacts on coloured material. I suggest getting an all over protective case that also surrounds the aluminum trim, because the trim can also be scratched, but this is barely noticeable on the silver one, the black however looks painted.

    I have been using a white 930 for a couple of months and have NO stains or other signs of wear on it.

    I don't use any kind of screen protectors or cases and just clean it regularly.
