    Default oleophobic coating?

    Did the m8 come with this? It seems that now the screen is showing it's share of fingerprints after a few weeks of ownership....

    And if there a spray (no silly films) that won't make the screen all greasy looking or am I better off just carrying a microfiber cloth with me all the time?

    Thanks in advance.

    My screen doesn't get smudged too easily, usually only when eating pizza. If I have to clean the screen I use eye glass cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth.

    You can put a smudge resistant seree protector on it. I have one on my Note 3 and I don't have to clean it all the time.

    Any spray coating is eventually going to wear off, basically it comes down to keeping your hands clean and non-greasy whenever possible. On a side note am I the only one here who just uses their shirt to clean off the occasional fingerprint?

    Thanks for the replies. I may just stick to the microfiber cloth.

    But did the m8 have that coating or is it just a few iPhone thing?

    For whatever reason, the M8 holds far fewer fingerprints and face/hair grease than any other phone I've used. I really never have to wipe it off because any previous oils get wiped off as I'm swiping, etc.

    I don't want to speak for all phones and sound ignorant, but I think its safe to say that most modern smart phones come with some sort of oleophobic coating. Some better than others. So far I think the smudges on the m8 are very minimal.

    With alcohol you wipe the coating off.
