    Ugh. How do you clean fingerprint smudges etc off?
    The old "breathe on it then wipe it on your sleeve" isn't working because of the material.

    Any suggestions?

    I wear glasses, so I'm using one of those microfiber lens cleaning cloths. They don't scratch and it takes smudges right off.

    slightly damp paper towel, gently wipe and clean up with microfiber cloth.
    just make sure its not overly wet since water may damage internals if it leaks into the device. don't use anything abrasive either as it may damage the material.

    Key to that is ether using a new cloth or making sure that it's cleaned to the best of your ability. Any dirt on the cloth could scratch the back or front of the phone.

    Once the newness factor has worn off, most of us will revert back to wiping once a week or longer (unless you're the OCD type).

    Spit and the bottom of a tee-shirt works well. Modern day spit shine.
