    Anyone else notice that the screen gets harder to keep clean over time? Previously with my note 4, I had to clean the screen several times a day.

    Was pretty amazed at how seldom I originally had to clean the note 8's screen. But now it's back to doing so several times a day. I'm not a heavy lotion user, and keep hands clean.

    Seems ok to me. I use this stuff and this microfiber cloth - always.

    Probably should have asked this as part of the original message.

    Wondering if there's a protective layer that wears down.

    I have the new Zagg elite curve tempered glass protector on my N8. It really is smudge resistant as promised on the packaging.
    I seldom need to clean it.

    It’s most likely the oleophobic coating wearing off.

    Oleophobic coatings are not permanent and wear off over time, especially when under use.

    How long it takes to wear off depends on application and other conditions.
