I have been the proud owner of a Nexus 5 for 3 weeks now :) Unfortunately, the back gets dirty from my fingers so I found ways on how to clean the back of the Nexus 5. Please let me know if you found other solutions that helped for you!

For the screen:
-Bausch & Lomb Sight Savers (wet wipes for glass and plastic lens)
-paper towel & windex
-microfiber cloth and spray (for eye glasses)!

For the back:
-microfiber cloth
-a cotton shirt

But of course if you want to always keep is clean, you can buy a case & screen protectors ;)

I bought 3 cases and one wallet-type case, several screen protectors and a flygrip. Still prefer it naked though...

I think Mary was talking about physically cleaning, rather than cleaning the system. Thanks for your input anyway.

Thank you so much for sharing the way to clean Nexus 5. All the android phone can be cleaned by the same way? Or we still need android cleaner tool?
