Used to years ago. Just don't care enough anymore. Swap the phone out yearly anyway. Not nearly as anal about it these days haha.

I usually always have one with me. I clean my devices about 200 times a day. I think it's a sickness.

Shirt here too. But have eye glass wipes at home and work. I also plan to get a new one once a year.

Nope. I used to, but as others said, I'm a lot less concerned about it than I was with my first iPhone.

I keep a small microfiber cloth in the center console of my car for the occasional wipedown. I have a larger one at my desk at home for the same thing.

I have a few Purel wipes from restaurants that do the trick. Or the iKlear cleaner that I have packed with my gadgets in the messenger bag.

I have a Zagg Glass protector on my 6 Plus, and just wipe the phone on my shirt. No biggy really. When home I have a spare cloth at my desk and a few by my bed just in case.

I drive daily for work and I always have a clean microfiber towel in the car with me, just for wiping my phone...

I literally wipe my phone before getting out the car and getting into, after work...

I clean the screen before leaving for the day in order to remove yesterday's greasy smears. Same for my glasses. I bring a microfiber cloth and spray in my bag in case I get salad oil or some other gooey crap on same. In those cases, a shirt does nothing but smear the screen further.

I carry a microfiber cloth with me to clean off the camera lens before I do any photography. I'm a pretty serious Instagramer.#

Nope I just use my shirt, but then, I have a screen protector on it anyways, so that's what I'm wiping off.

I have one at my desk at work originally bought with my computer screen cleaner and wipe it once a day or so. Also have one on nightstand for all my gadgets not just phone.

It is part of the morning routine for my secretary. Just after she got me a Black Coffee and a Croissant, and before rounding up the news, my glass will be polished.

Guilty as charged! I actually laughed when I saw this post. Its crazy how much I hate excess fingerprints, so I wipe the device all the time and then just to pick it right back up and put more fingerprints on it! Yeah I have issues...

I carry one in my briefcase, but it only gets used a couple of times a month. A certain amount of smudging is no problem to me, but I get out the cloth when it gets hard to read the screen.

My FiiO X3 music player screen picks up smudges way more than my 5S, so the cloth does double duty.
