    lol Mine doesn't get that bad to where I can't see it out side. Maybe you just have greasy fingers? J/K lol

    I just wipe it off real quick if it does have a little bit of fingerprints.

    I like to do the old Huff and Wipe method. Just like cleaning a pair of sun/eyeglasses.

    I use a Zagg Invisishield, finger prints aren't too bad. And if it gets to dirty I wipe the screen off with whatever is handy, like my shirt or pants.

    If you wanna go the screen protector route I’ve heard the Steinhill Anti-Fingerprint works very well.

    That's what I use. I've taken to carrying a piece with me. Haven't needed it damp yet.

    I use a microfiber cloth I got with an eyeglasses cleaning kit, works like a charm!

    Or instead of spending hard earned cash on protectors you could always dip your fingers in a harsh acidic solution and chemical burn your finger prints off.

    I do not advise this It was just a funny thought that ran threw my head when I read the threat's title.

    I used that - works GREAT for never having to wipe the screen, but it's not a clear protector so the screen isn't 100% like it looks naked.

    The other thing to think about is installing an app like "mylock".

    I used to turn off my screen, wipe off all the nasty, then when I'd turn my screen back on I'd have to slide the lock and there's a smudge right off the bat.

    With mylock you turn on your screen and don't have to swipe the lock.

    For smudges, I find that the front of an Under Armour tee or polo shirt works pretty good.
