Any Oleophobic screen protectors that are completely clear? I hate the antiglare ones because it ruins the look of the display. Thanks!

the problem is it's just a coating

the coating wears off much faster when its applied to plastic vs when bonded onto the glass of the iphone screen

the oleophobic coating wears off the SGP's but it's still easier to wipe clean when new than a lot of crystal screen protectors

I was not impressed with the SGP Oleophobic at all when I had it on my iPhone 4.

Neither was I but the version for the 5 seems to have great reviews so I ordered it and installed it. So far I'm liking it, it does seem to resist fingerprinting and smudging more than the 4S version ever did. We'll see how it holds up. What I'm really looking forward to is the Ultra Optics. I just got it for my new iPad and it's great, much improved from the iPad 2 version. I hope the iPhone 5 version is similarly improved. It also came with a great rear protector when I got it for my 4S.
