Ha! Never noticed. Although I covered my back up a long time ago.

Thanks. Mine is a D820 bought in the US. But it is so faint and hard to read that I resorted to taking a photo of it which I could then magnify and read!
Thanks for the info.

Is it possible the new N5 you purchased in the UK was a refurb? If it was new it should definitely still have the oleophobic coating on it. I don't know if future refurbs with functional screens get more oleophobic coating or not when they're sent back for repair.
I is brand new. Do you think I might have a defected unit with not enough oleophobic coating?
Is something might change after a few days of use?
Should I return my phone?

it will change after a few days of use when you peel off the screen protector that says Nexus on it, it leaves some of the adhesive behind a couple days of usage and it will go the oil on your fingers will eventually smoother the surface of the glass i call this the New phone feel

Nah! I think its just you who is imagining it. I have a D820 myself and a friend bought a D821. I literally see NO difference between the two other than the fact that my phone will always be better than anybody else's phone :P
Its probably just placebo, but if you still feel the same way after using it for a while then just factory reset both phones, close your eyes and shuffle them. Then try identifying whoz who! :P
Or get a new screen protector.
Hit Thanks If this was useful

To be honest my gf nas recieved her replacement Nexus 4 and it does feel much smoother than the old one. It feels better than my Nexus 5.

Maybe different type of polishing?
