I hate fingerprints on my phone, or in my case. Do you know any case without that problem?

I been watching videos a practically all the Spigen cases are fingerprints magnet. Thanks.

Go for matte screen protectors. These will reduce the brightness/clarity of the screen in some respects but the quality of some of these are pretty good these days. Cheap ones will generally scratch easily. The ones I've tried for the Nexus 5 are the Gearmaxx and the Nillkin anti-glare. Both have been great in terms of what I wanted. The Nillkin is a bit better I would say in terms of overall smoothness/screen clarity/easy of application etc. Both reasonably priced.

In terms of cases - I would say matte or those silicon type ones. I personally don't like the feel of any of those though. The other option is a skin. Plenty of threads around for these.

Gluck.

I've seen it only in videos. Reviewers said It's a fingerprints magnet, specially the black one.

I have the black and it definitely is a fingerprint magnet. A case i would recommend, currently wearing it, is the caseology tpu carbon fiber

I've searched this case on Google, and it's anti-fingerprints. But I have to say I don't like the big logo on it. Eitherway, if I don't find any other Caseology is a good choice.

Cases I've tried that do not attract finger print smudge: quicksand case, 0.3mm cheap generic case, diztronic tpu matte. As for the rest like the slim armor and Google bumper case do tend to attract some finger prints.

What do you think guys about the SPIGEN Ultra FIt Case COLOR WHITE or RED?

About the fingerprints thing.

This one seems to be cheap and anti-fingerprints on eBay:
