    Just wondering how everyone cleans the screen on their Fascinate, with or without a screen protector. I normally take a damp towel and wipe the entire phone every morning. That gets rid of the fingerprints and whatever finger/face grease may be on it. I don't use a screen protector or case.

    I don't...

    Is that gross?

    The fingerprints / streaks don't bother me.. I don't use a lock pattern, so I'm not too concerned about a "smudge attack".

    Shirt sleeve.... for random "get those prints off" ...

    I do have a microfiber cloth and cleaning solution as well.. but, only do this once per week, or whenever i feel like it..

    currently no screen protector either.. I've been looking at sgpstore.com .. but, they don't have Fascinate screen protectors yet. I'd really like to try one of the Ultra Crystal or the Ultra Oleophobic screens. Other forums report that the Ultra Crystal is about as close as you're going to get to the same feel as the glass on the phone... (which, I'd prefer.. don't want my finger getting stuck on a tacky surface).

    yes it is gross!

    BGR touchscreen phone a petri dish?

    for me the smudges just make the screen look bad, so I wipe it off with my shirt or something every so often

    Just a little warning....Do Not use paper towels, etc. A cotton/MF cloth with a dab o' water will work wonders and not scratch your pretty screens.

    I only user paper towels if they are wet, like when I'm done drying my hands. Throughout the day I'll use the top of my pants too.

    I have a screen protector so I just do a quick wipe across my shirt if it needs it. If I really want to clean it i guess I would use a microfiber cloth or something like that.

    Some of us may actually require sandpaper.....

    As for the phone I could understand the use of sandpaper...adds character.

    Hrm, interesting. I could see this if it was a public smartphone, but since I use the device 99% of the time, I would imagine that very little bacteria/germs present on the device are not originating from me. If they came from me in the first place, I'm not too concerned about it.

    Now I could definitely see an argument being made for skin issues, etc.. where oil/bacteria accumulate on the screen from your face, build up for a while, then end up back on your face in the same area over and over.. that makes more sense.

    As far as being "gross", I bet you a standard keyboard is about the same, if not worse. The fascinate doesn't really have room for crumbs, and food particles.

    I hear that. Ever pick your keyboard up and tip it upside down? I'm always amazed at how much falls out. Now I gotta go wash my hands!

    Am I weird? I can't find any fingerprints on my phone. When it comes to dust though... I am constantly using my sleeve to clear the screen. Maybe I'm just a dry person.

    said he uses hand sanitizer. In fact he used it on my phone before installing the screen protector. Kinda make sense as that stuff tends to evaporate and not leave spots. I haven't cleaned my screen yet but, when I do I think I'll try the hand sanitizer with my shirt or other cloth.

    Hello. I personally find the easiest way to clean my screen on any device, laptop, tvs, phones, is just microfiber with filtered water.
