Default [Q] OMG FINGERPRINTS!!!!1111one

So I have been pretty much just living with the fingerprints on my Hero since there was no other method of input on it but now that I have the Shift, the fingerprints on the touchscreen are driving me crazy. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good screen protector that doesn't show prints?

I'm worried that my constant wiping of the screen will prematurely scratch it.

I use a zagg protector, its not bad. You will get fingerprints but I don't think they're that noticeable. Of course eating chips and touching the phone is probably always going to leave a fingerprint but otherwise I recommend zagg

I haven't tried it but I saw someone say they apply Rain-X to the screen periodically and makes wiping the prints off easy.

I use lens cleaning wipe on my anti glare screen protector periodically. Can't really see fingerprints. But the pores do happen to absorb oil..

i hate fingerprints too, i use the anti glare screen protector that comes in the 3 pack from sprint, 2 regular and 1 no glare and i love the no glare one, although it kinda washes out the screen its very worth the no fingerprints

I like the screen protector I got from Zagg. Little hard to get used to at first, cause it's kind of feels funny. But it seems to keep glare down, and definately no fingerprints.

If you do get the Zagg I wouldnt plan on having a case. Over time the case will lift up the corners of the shield and it will start peeling off.

Fwiw ive used mine since January with no protection and no scratches on the screen. If it gets smudges I just wipe it on my shirt.

Or pants, or jacket, or gloves.... :lol: (speaking of gloves, with winter on the way, any decent touchscreen gloves out there?)
