Info 2 [Q] Dust magnet cure

Hi Guys,


I see that the z1 compact is kind of a dust magnet (or at least I have the impression). The other day I was reading a comment that said some interesting stuff:

"to solve the dust magnet problem and fingerprints on the screen I washed it with soap and water. I think it's the static and whatever bit of adhesive that comes on the shipping screen cover thing that you remove."


Unfortunately I do not own the device yet, but I am very curious if the above method works. (mostly the dust magnet part)


Any volunteers ?

Mine collects some dust in the earpiece/led hole. I haven't washed it at all. I'll do that as soon as I get home.
