The default screen protector that came with my spigen case is a fingerprint magnet. Do you guys have suggestions as to which ones are NOT for fingerprint magnets?

All plastic ones will be showing fingerprints with light reflections. Some of the glass screen protectors have an oleophobic coating which can reduce fingerprints greatly for a period of time before the coating wears off, similar to the stock glass.

Pro-tip, rain-x works wonders on making fingerprints less noticable. I used to do this on my Dell Streak, it makes the glass feel silkier, but wears off after a week or two... I don't see why you couldn't do this with a plastic screen protector, I'll give it a go next time I see a bottle of Rain-X.

I don't have one for the n5, but matte ones generally don't attract fingerprints as much.

Yep. Mattes one rarely attract fingerprints, but it will make the screen look a little weird.
