    I don't know if it's my imagination or not but it seems the screen on my GS5 seems to accumulate many more smudges and fingerprints. Aren't they supposed to have some kind of special coating to avoid that? Did mine wear off? I'm wiping the front off every couple of hours.

    Samsung Galaxy S5. The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a thin, lightweight design with a 5.1” FHD Super AMOLED display with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance™.

    I guess it could have worn off.. Have you used any ammoniated cleaners?

    Alcohol based cleaners are also a no no on these coatings.

    I heard about alcohol being bad. I've been using a microfiber cloth that does a great job cleaning the glass and after a wipe or two it's spotless but after a while accumulates pretty quickly. Guess I'll just have to live with it until my next upgrade. Waiting for the GS8.
