    I've used wax on my windshield before but it didn't last as long as Rain-X, so I didn't bother doing it again.

    Another vote for RainX. Doesn't prevent finger prints or goo smudges but it comes off a lot easier with than without. Been using it since before Android. I don't recommend it on top of plastic screen protectors though. It doesn't wipe totally clear like on glass.

    I wonder what Rain-X would do on phones with the Shatter-proof layer. Just how glassy are they?

    Just received my Smitty's glass wax.. It's great.. Just rub a small drop in and wipe with the enclosed cloth, don't need to let it dry.. And your glass screen does feel new and your finger flies across screen( I do Swype and it's so much better) great on eyeglasses too..I have to do it on my truck's touch screen but I will wait on that... Freezing outside now! I'll get right back as soon as I try it there. My husband loves it too..5 stars out of five here!

    Got mine in today too. Initial review, pretty good stuff.

    One or two dots will do, I did 3 and that was a bit overboard, don't know why the guy in the video put like 10.

    My hands are a pretty dry this time of year, but seems pretty oleophobic now. Fingerprint clean device and feels pretty slick afterwards, nice. The bottle should last quite awhile too.

    Glad you liked yours too... I'm going to use it on my car's touch screen on a warmer day and I'll let everyone know how it worked out! We have a week of subfreezing temps coming up so it may take awhile.. My garage isn't heated( lol)

    This stuff smells pretty terrible though lol. Good thing you have to get your nose super close to it to really smell it

    It actually smells like the glass wax my mom used to clean windows with when I was a kid.. it used to come as a pink creamy liquid in a squeeze can... So for me it's a memory as much as it smells( lol) but the smell goes away once you close the top and wipe it off. The old fashioned one used to have to dry before you wiped it off, too..

    I used the Smitty's glass wax on my touch screen on my truck and it's lovely not to have those fingerprints. It's been a week since and it's still smooth and unmarked. The sun used to mess up the view of the screen that was full of finger prints.
