    Does the X have an oleo-phobic screen coating? I must say it wipes down really easy. I thought I read somewhere pre-release that it did. If you know, let me know! :)

    Oleo-phobic as in it resists oils? If so, yeah, it looks like it. My fingers aren't that greasy but my screen looks pretty clean other than very light fingerprints. I have a microfiber cloth around to wipe it down occasionally to keep dust from sticking to the oils and scratching the screen.

    I wipe mine occasionally as well, but it appears to be made out of the same screen material as the original Droid.

    I have to work?
    I don't think so. That would have been a feature listed in the launch kit and it wasn't so i would say no.

    I've had my fair share of smartphones and none have been as fingerprint resistant as the DX, coming from the Inc, it's night and day. The Inc was a fingerprint magnet, I was constantly wiping it down, but not the DX. Even if it doesn't have an oleo-phobic screen coating, it seems like it has something preventing all the dust, grease and fingerprints from covering the screen.
