    Anybody notice no fingerprints on the phone itself? I'm not talking about the fingerprint sensor. I'm talking about using the touch screen and having it leave fingerprints. My black iPhone 4 was a fingerprint magnet but this iPhone 5s doesn't leave any fingerprints! Wow! I have it in a case but the front of the phone is exposed and no fingerprints. I don't know how things were with the 4s or 5 so don't know if this is a new "feature" or not. Nice "touch". ;)

    Every iPhone since the 3Gs has an oleophobic coating on it that causes it to resist fingerprints. Over time that coating does wear away cause it to start to retain fingerprints like an untreated glass surface would.
