Does lint/dust get stuck in the ballistic nylon?

    I'm on the fence about buying this phone, mainly because of the stupid capacitive buttons. But if I do buy it I would want the 64GB version.

    Does anyone with the ballistic nylon back have issues with dirt and dust getting stuck in the fibers?

    Got mine on launch day and haven't noticed any dust or lint getting stuck in there. I do have some very small tufts of nylon fiber sticking out in a couple places around the camera and LED cutouts. Hoping those will eventually wear down.

    Yep, no lint or dust problems on the back here... in fact, I am finding the ballistic nylon to be one of my favorite features of the phone. It has such a good sturdy feel... love it.

    I was concerned about that too. Had mine since launch and no problems yet. Lint will collect on it of course, but is easily brushed off.

    I think dust and lint tends to stick ON the nylon, but not IN the nylon. I've never had anything on it that doesn't brush off easily.

    Sounds like it isn't any different than the regular back for attracting lint. Thanks for your replies!

    I'm pretty sure part of my thanksgiving dinner is now embedded thanks to prepping for a 23 person feast. But I'm confident I'll be able to scrub it out.

    I have several parts of the nylon becoming unraveled! Going to vzw today to have them look at it

    Static might cause that. Just vacuum it. The ballistic nylon is very durable and will hold up well. I've only carried ballistic nylon wallets past 2 decades.

    Try hitting it with a lighter real quick

    +1 I also heated a paperclip and touched it to some fuzzies I noticed around the cutouts.

    I loved the Best Buy blue ballistic nylon but the two display models were frayed, so I went with the MGF. I am too OCD to have anything poking out of my phone. Plus most of the good cases don't fit the nylon as well. Best Buy had the Turbo for $99 so I couldn't pass it up.
