    No it is not micro fiber, if you press too hard it will scratch your screen and you left smudges after you clean it. I found the best way. Just use the scotch tape , stick it on your screen and pull it out, all your grease, finger print and small dust will stick to the tape. No more expensive microfiber or spray . The scotch tape only cost me 3 bucks . Also you can use one piece of the tape many times . Try it

    Note : do not use this method if you have screen protector , you might pull out the screen protector however if you don't have screen protector it's worth a try sometimes

    Can this pull the screen off by accident? I just wipe my phone with a shirt, no need to goto microfiber.

    NO it wont pull the screen out, trust me iphone is not that weak, and also, i got this idea from the screen guard shop, where the guy apply the screen guard for me. He used the tape to clean the dust and etc. Of course right now i dont use screen guard on my phone and i have been using this method to clean my phone. In fact it is the best way. I scratched my previous iphone many times because i used microfiber.

    Scotch tape can potentially leave sticky residue and take off some of the coating on the screen (not gonna try to type it, the coating that starts with an 'o' lol)

    What kind of cheap crap microfiber are you buying? A semi decent microfiber will not scratch if properly cared for.

    How would you scratch the screen with a piece of cloth?
    The glass is supposed to be scratch resistant and not able to scratch with a soft cloth.
    I think you're over thinking it.
    Get a paper tower, soft cloth, tshit etc...
    Scotch tape?:D
    And like the user above said you will also remove the oleophobic coating on the screen.
    IMO its nonsense but if you like it go for it. Its your phone.

    Naw trust me its clean because if its really dirty I lick it then wipe it on my shirt. Never scratched my other iPhones by doing this. It's a shirt not sandpaper.

    Thats a bad idea. You only use tape...(and the small scotch tape, not that big real sticky roll) to get dust specs off the screen before you put on a screen protector. Your nuts to do it with that all the time. I hope you just dab because eventually your going to mess up the coating on it.

    I use a good screen protector and clean it with my shirt, a cloth, whatever and eventually i replace the protector with another when it needs it.

    Yep, you are over thinking this as Applejuiced said. I always use a 3M microfiber cloth and never scratched my IP4 and I am sure my IP5 will be fine too. Save the scotch tape for sending packages.

    I always had a screen protector on my devices on the 1st day. Then use a microfiber cloth to clean. Works fine for me. :)

    not a practical way to clean it on a regular basis, but it actually cleans very well.

    Yeah but my shirt does the same thing and I don't have to hunt for tape every time I wanna clean my screen.

    just realized you were using the large Scotch tape... just wanted to say that the regular desk tape I used worked just as well :)
