Default OPO and the fingerprint magnet

I don't normally have an issue with a oily screen, but it's happening on my OPO. Its a fingerprint nightmare. Since this normally doesn't happen I have to assume that OPO doesn't have a oleophobic coating.

* Can someone else confirm fingerprint nightmare ...

* Has anyone used the Rain X trick and if so how did they apply it (pros/cons)


Thanks in advance. [emoji3]

Mine is definitely a fingerprint magnet. Haven't done anything about it yet, since I've only had the phone for 2 days. I am constantly wiping the screen on my shirt or my pants. I'll look into RainX

I'd probably just suggest getting a high quality glass screen protector, that way it is protected from scratches and they are also normally oleophobically treated

it does have an oleophobic coating. its the same as on any gorilla glass screen. you can try a matte screen protector, but they wear noticeably.
