    Hey guys so once my 1+1 arrives I'll be selling my Nexus 4. The N4 has quite some dust/dirt on it and idk what's a good way to clean it to make it look new again. Any tips or vids? Thanks!

    Use one of those tiny spiky tooth cleaning rods (forgot what they're called)

    No tip but keep a spare phone if you possibly can. Stuff happens...

    Take a toothbrush and brush over the earpiece with the tip of the bristle gently. This'd make most get loose and afterwards you can either blow it out or use a toothpick to pick some more.

    In the past I've used things like Silly Putty to clean out earpieces. BE WARNED though, on one phone, the mesh screen was so fine that some of the putty got STUCK in there! Most of the time I just use a needle and that gets the bulk of it out. Try a needle in your headphone and USB ports, it's amazing how much fuzz comes out!

    If you show me a vid of you cleaning your earpiece out that way then I'd do it.

    Take a chewing gum. Chew it properly. Then wash it with water to remove sugar content. Then use it to remove ear wax from earpiece. You will see results.
    Thank you!
