    Oleophobic Screen?

    Has anyone else noticed that the Droid's screen seems to be oleophobic? I take it out of my pocket and the screen is perfectly clean of finger prints... This is the characteristic of an oleophobic coating.

    Hmmm not sure what oleophobic is, but my screen gets littered with smugs and fingerprints.

    he's basically talking about resists water/oil. Kinda like it has rainx applied to it. I have some Oakley sunglasses like this.

    and to the OP, I have noticed the screen wipes clean very easily. Most likely the motion inside your pocket is constantly wiping it off.

    It does feel very slick, especially when I compare it to my iPod Touch's screen. The iPod Touch screen is a fingerprint magnet.

    Oleo = oil
    Phobic = to resist/repel, to fear.

    Yeah I have a feeling it does have a coating on it. The older iPhones don't wipe clean this easily. Only the 3GS has it, not the original or 3G.

    An oleophobic screen doesn't stop fingerprints from occurring, it just makes them much, much easier to wipe off. Like in this case, I literally just take it out of my pocket and the thing looks brand new. I highly doubt it would do that without a coating on it.

    I just find it strange that I can't find it in any of the specifications.

    I carefully placed a drop of liquid (watered down dr. pepper to be exact) on the screen. As you can see it is repelling the liquid quite nicely!

    If it does have it it's not as good as the 3GS. because the 3gs does not get so finger magnet that easy like the droid. I could/would never use the droid without a screen protector because its very finger magnectic.

    What is a good screen protector for Droid?
    Also,
    I noticed 1 more thing... if you blow air on the screen you can clearly see that its different... for a second, it got
    condensation on it and it just disappears like magic.

    I highly recommend Ghost Armor. Best one out now. No orange peel or tackiness to it. It's actually hard to even tell it's on the device unless you point it out to someone.

    Best product out of all of the body kits. I think........

    in all honesty since its a glass screen a protector isnt needed. you would have to really hit something hard to scratch the screen and in the process im sure the screen protector would have failed in the process.
