    As an avid Oakley collector, I tried to apply the Oakey Nano-Clear Hydrophobic treatment on my Zagg Invisibleshield Glass in an attempt to make my screen repel oil, fingerprints, dirt, water, etc.

    To my amazement, it actually works! I'll let the pictures do the talking!

    The product:

    As you can see, Zagg is a fingerprint magnet:

    To compare, did the same on an iPhone 6 plus with a hydrophobic treated glass protector:

    And how long does it stay smudge less until you have to apply the spray again?

    Bottle has pen-type applicator similar to the wide highlighter tip. Just applied it tonight so too early tell.

    So after eating a greasy, got the screen oily but wiped right off easily with my clean hand. Huge difference.

    Can I apply that on my iPhone 6's naked screen? i.e. I do not use a SP (so far)

    I don't see why not. I imagine it's an extremely mild and probably organic susbtance considering it is made to go very near your eyes.

    Please let us know how that goes, I am curious, I usually opt for a screen protector, but, with the curved edges of iPhone 6, can't get full protection, might opt for no protector if this protects from scratches.

    Sure will let you know - although in some time. I currently use my iPhone 6 without any screen protector precisely for the reasons you mentioned (I have AC+ though)

    Sorry, but there is no way this stuff will prevent scratches.

    I prefer to have smudges on a screen protector than on a naked screen. The one I have on my 6 plus is actually not too bad for fingerprints . I have no idea what make it is as I bought it at a mall and had it installed.
