Anyone notice the screen doesn't get dirty? Or am I nuts?

    I always thought the Gorilla Glass on my OG Droid had some coating that made it almost impossible to keep it clean and smudge free. Even when using Windex on the darn screen it was hard to make it perfectly clean, not so with the Nexus. A quick wipe with a clean cloth and it's CLEAN.

    I've noticed it too. The smudges seem to dry up and go away. Totally awesome!

    It probably has an oleophobic coating on the glass like the iPhone does.

    Really? I absolutely hated them and took it off immediately.

    Yes, you are not alone .... I noticed it as well, and I hate sounding this way, but it is such a gorgeous screen to boot, even when off hehehe.

    I put an invisible shield on mine, and it retains FAR more smudges than the phone does on its own.

    (This is hopefully a temporary measure for me - I hope that after a month or two, I'll hear that people who rock the Nexus naked are still happy, and remove it)

    Yup thought it was me too. It does resist smudges better than others. My Bionic and DX were a PITA to keep clean w/o a screen protector.

    Yeah this is one unexpected plus to this phone that I'm loving. It has to have some kind of oleo-phobic coating that actually works (I've seen them advertised before but never experienced one that worked this well). They really should have advertised that, it's pretty awesome.

    :( ... i put the have the screen protectors from VZW on there - and my entire screen looks like I've been holding it against my face (talking on the phone) for a couple hrs - has the oily residue look. I took it back thinking the VZW rep forgot to wipe the screen down first, asked them to redo it (before I even asked, the guy who did it immediately pulled a gal over and told her exchange out the screen, but not to put it on) - she put it on for me as I'm horrible with air bubbles. Anyway, turns out it's the screen protectors that are causing the residue looking issue :( ...kinda hurts the eyes.

    So what do you guys recommend? I'd like to try something different, and a buddy of mine has a GNex on back order and is worried about the same experience.
