I just thought I'd chime in about this issue. I've tried the iPhone 5, with and without screen protectors and while the scratch resistant glass does hold up very well I personally can't stand the phone without an Oleophobic screen protector. Within seconds of using it bare the phone turns oily and cloudy and the black glass turns dark grey with smudges. Text and graphics are blurred and you see flare from smudges on the screen as well. Even with a 100% brand new iPhone 5 I purchased a few days ago which has a slight oleophobic coating I've heard, it's not enough. I personally use the Green Onions oleophobic or SGP oleophobic protectors with great results. So after going protector-less for just 3 days I slapped on an extra oleophobic protector I had laying around. Does anyone else think an oleophobic protector is nessesary for the iPhone 5, or am I just crazy about smudges? That level of flare is just annoying.
