Does anyone else feel like their iPhone XS Max doesn't have an oleophobic coating? I have had tons of phones dealt with tons of screen protectors and it's pretty obvious when one doesn't have a coating. On my Max, you pretty much have to scrub the screen to get fingerprints off. It's not a huge issue because I put a Zagg on it and now the screen cleans easily but I was just curious.

Nope mine is like every new iPhone I've opened.

Damn. I could tell when I was setting up the phone the way my finger slid across the screen. Before putting on the shield it was tough to get the fingerprints off. I'll always have a shield on it but it's going to piss off the person I sell this thing to next year lol.

I kind of noticed that too -- the screen didn't feel as nice n' "glidy" as it usually does. Although have to say, my wife's Xs felt the same :(
