    I feel that the oleophobic iPhone 5 coating is improved over the 4 and 4S coatings. They were good but the 5 seems better.

    Anyone agree?

    Is that the anti-figerprint coating? I have not noticed a difference on the 5. Still gets a lot of figerprints.

    What's your basis for that? If you're comparing brand new iPhone 5 to a year old 4S and two years old 4, of course it'll be better because the oleophobic coating wears down over time.

    Comparing to my memory of my new 4 and 4S. Based on ease of removing smudges and lack of smudges accumulating.
