    So I was on a long call in 95 degree weather today and when I got off the phone there was a ton of sweat on it . I wiped it off and now the phone screen is not as smooth, somewhat sticky and swype is being a PITA. Any tips on how to repair? Thanks

    Damp cloth would be easy enough.

    Yeah you probably have a salt residue remaining on the screen that is causing the issue.

    Sir, I commend you for the straightforward answer. You pushed through the facepalm moment and did what was honorable. All I could do was LOL.

    glasses lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth work great, probably computer screen cleaner works fine too --- or a mixture of 50/50 alcohol and distilled water. Hopefully, you have a screen protector on, if not, get one on there asap.

    I've had gunk appear on the screen occasionally... usually because I've had a recipe on it while cooking or checking it while eating...
