    What kind of phone? Do you know if it has an Oleophobic coating on the screen. That kind lets the oil from your fingers build up and slide around on the surface. Kind of hard to clean off.

    I use a soft, lint free cloth like the kind that comes with screen protectors to clean my screens. You can try breathing heavily on the screen to "fog" it and then wiping with the cloth. It usually helps the oils wipe away better.

    Also, do you take the phone into the bathroom while you take a shower?

    Lets say you left the phone on the sink or somewhere inside the bathroom.
    Some phones do get like that with the steam from the shower.

    Does anyone else in your household have this problem? It could be humidity. Just a thought.

    msndrstood might be onto something here. If the screen wasn't sealed off properly, then condensation might be getting underneath the screen. Similar to double pane glass windows and water vapor gets in between them.
