Anyone else noticing a ton of fingerprints on the back of their iPhone 5?

My backing hasn't chipped or scratched (yet) while naked, but it does get a ton of finger prints. Anyone else getting them? Not really a problem, but I was just curious.

I notice a ton! I use my iPhone backwards all the time and all I see are fingerprints! It's madness I tell you...

Well that said I think iPhone 5 is much less prone to fingerprints than full glass front and back iPhone 4S was...

The 4/4S showed fingerprints less because of the oleophobic-coated glass back, but it's not that bad on the black iPhone 5 if you wear it naked in your pants pocket, which is self-cleaning.

definitely not a ton

Yup, definitely not a ton. I still could lift mine without any apparent effort.

I decided to get a case, however I will have to wait. It is a rather thin case, and it actually looks really nice (somewhat clear)

Until then, I will have to continue to baby it.

I don't have any chips yet, thank god, as far as I can see.

Hey has anyone noticed that if you touch your phone while your hands are wet it will leave moisture on your iPhone??? Should I call Apple and see if I can exchange it? :D

Why don't you people just enjoy your new iPhone and stop spending every second of the day looking for something to gripe about??
