    The "gorilla glass" is part of what made me buy the phone, I don't cover the screen and sometimes use sunglass cleaner on it with a microfiber but that's about it.

    I have a collection of Oakley glasses and carry cleaner with me, i use it once in awhile on the screen.

    I have also used LCD screen cleaner on the phone and my laptop which works well also.

    I clean it all the time because I already carry a small lens cleaning rag in my pocket for my prescription Ray Ban sunglasses and my regular eyeglasses.

    After first buying an iPod Touch, and now the Droid, I find myself actually leaving it a bit smudgy as it makes your finger slide smoothly on the screen. I still wipe it off when it gets overly smudgy or when showing friends/family.

    The one thing I noticed about the Droid screen as opposed to the iPod is that it is a bit sticky after wiping the screen clean. Not sticky in a glue/gum way, just seems to take a bit more force to slide your finger than it would with a bit of oil from your fingers helping it along.

    Hope this helps!
    You know, you're right. The oils in your hands should serve as a sort of lubricant. I find myself cleaning the screen all the time (OCD, and I always seem to catch the phone at angles that show fingerprints easily), simply because I don't like the appearance of a dirty screen. So, perhaps this is why I always had a bit of trouble with Swype. I love Swype, but I could never seem to get my thumb to be able to glide across the screen easily. Maybe I'll try letting my screen get a little smudged up, and then see if I have any more success.

    When I first got the phone I did it a few times a day, now I never do- ever. I found that when I walk around with it in my pocket (front left with screen facing towards me for protection) the movement from walking cleans for me. So every time I take it out of my pocket its all clean.
