Question Which oleophobic coating?

Looks like Nexus 5 doesn`t have it as I can`t find it mentioned on any spec sheet. It really works wonders keeping screen clean of fatty/smudged fingerprints(on iPhone 5).

Which one is best? Found this for example on Amazon and video here

Any other solutions maybe, some kind of nano super duper ultra coating?

Couldn`t find that mentioned on spec sheets. Even GSMarena doesn`t mention that:


Also, why N5 is not on this list? Google page says its using Gorilla glass.

For this price you can get a high quality tempered glass screen protector. With oleophobic coating already on it.

Oleophobic coating is a standard feature on high-end smartphones (especially those with Gorilla Glass... the coating also increase scratch resistance thus it is there by default).
It's so common that it doesn't need to be mentioned, that's why it doesn't appear in spec sheets.
I think you come into this conclusion because you haven't get the Nexus 5 yet? If you have it in your hands you will know it has a coating.

Keep in mind there is no real hardware revision update. Check the more recent forum threads on here.

The coating is on all Gorrila Glass 3 and works well. Corning's whitepaper outlined it's able to withstand 20,000 wipes over it's lifetime amongst other innovations.
