    To those lucky enough to get their i4s two days early (I am SO jealous!!), do fingerprints show up less often, more often, or about the same as previous models?

    Yes I'd like to know this too.

    Any of the lucky few who received theirs today care to comment?

    I noticed when watching a unboxing video of the ip4 that just by picking the phone up, there were fingerprints on the sides where he touched it. But, maybe it was just a glare. You'll find out tomorow if the iphone forum page is bloated with "arghh! this thing is a fingerprint magnet!"

    I am just fine waiting for my white ip4 ;)

    With the new Retina Display, the fingerprints are incredibly detailed - I can't believe the difference over my 3GS - you can see every loop, whorl and arch!

    Any product manufactures make with a glossy black finish will show fingerprints, no matter what kind of coating they have on it. I hate glossy black and wish this trend would stop. I prefer more of a flat black or satin black finish, some call it a Bat mobile/stealth finish.

    What is this phobia with fingerprints? :confused: Wipe and gone. Easy.

    You will be constantly be wiping, that's the issue.

    Exactly the reason I asked the question. I have become OCD in wiping the screen.

    People who have no order in their lives have a need to have at least one control in their lives. In this case, a fingerprintless iPhone screen.
