    Does anyone else notice little hairs and bits of fuzz being static charged to your screen?? I power the device off and wipe it clean with a screen cloth..but..it comes back..first phone to do this..I'm thinking its because its got a plastic screen and not glass?? I have a glass screen protector on it..but it doesn't seem to matter.

    I haven't gotten any static on or under my screen. Luckily not yet at least. I am usually the one that something happens to as rough as I am on phones. VZW pit the first scratches on it and I put the second but that's my only issues so far

    For some stupid reason I have things sticking ..with static cling. When I first got my t2 the shatter guard was loose and moved around..probably helped to create this .I'll try wiping a static dryer sheet over it..that'll probably fix it..

    Now I do have things cling to the exterior of my screen due to static. Not in-between layers though. I would have brought it to someone's attention if the shatter shield top layer was loose for sure

    O ok glad it's not in-between layers. I do have a lot stick to the exterior of my screen especially now that's its gotten cooler. A little bit of finger prints or oil from skin helps though. I got motor oil on mine from changing oil in my truck 3 days ago and that seemed to kill the static. I wouldn't suggest putting used motor oil it though haha

    Yep. Everything sticks to this screen. Every piece of dust in my house sticks right to it. I agree....the new style screen is a static magnet. I still love the phone, but am constantly wiping the screen clean

    I agree there @sajokaz. I can't believe the amount of dust that was able to stick to mine before the motor oil haha. Once I do a deep clean I guarantee there will be some more dust and lint to stick to it no doubt

    Maybe it's due to low humidity? One of the kiddos has a plastic inflatable ball pit. Since it's been dry in the house his hair sticks up like and he looks like a human plasma ball in it. But I know the lack of humidity in the winter can cause static build up on unusual things.

    I have always been a little OCD about keeping my phone clean, I am always wiping the screen. I love this phone, it is awesome! I would buy it again in a heartbeat. But, this new shatter shield technology does seem to attract more dust than gorilla glass. But it can survive a 900 foot drop....so a little dust is OK.
