    Does anyone actually manage to not have smeared greasy smudge stains on the screens ever?

    Quick question:
    Is there anything to coat the screens with that can stop it looking like that, that I don't know about?

    No you just take a few drops of water put it on yr screen and rub with your shirt. I don't think there's anything to put on the screen to stop it.

    I don't even use water. Just a small cloth and wipe = Done

    Mine doesn't usually look bad. I also wash my hands a lot, I'd go as far to say I'm a little OCD about it.

    The screen has an oleophobic coating from Apple that resists some smudges and fingerprints. I'm not sure if there is much else you can do.

    Weird. Seems to be worse than my old 4. I do really wash my hands a stupid amount of times but I don't think that's relevant as every time I look down its horrible. But.... Only when screen off and dark. Not noticeable when using phone. But you guys must get same thing and end up wiping on sleeve/jumper/cloth most of the time. Never used protectors actually. Was more thinking of those cloths or sprays that detract dust and if there was something similar for smudges. Microfibres don't work but just clean at the time.
