    While I DO feel the jet black is more prone to fingerprints and micro abrasions which is why I went for black, THAT phone was obviously done intentionally to exacerbate the problem. I liked the bacon comment! If you keep your hands fairly clean, wipe the phone often with a microfiber cloth, and case it with a nice clear TPU case you should be fine. And it DOES look super sweet in all its shinny black glory! I ALMOST went for it!

    It's black and it's shiny. It's going to show fingerprints. We all have 'em. If that's news to someone, they don't get out much. News flash, scratches and 'micro-abrasions' will show more easily, too.

    Someone went out of their way to collect that degree of oil on the phone. People leave oily prints, some more than others. Washing hands frequently will help, some. Prints will still be left.

    Anybody who buys the Jet Black phone and doesn't want finger prints on it better buy some latex or nitrile gloves, which can be had in basic black. Wear those for an hour then see what's collected inside. LOL!

    Buy what you like. Jet Black will be 'higher maintenance' but it's what I'll order. I'm a fan of gloss black, Japan black, piano black, urushi, etc., so no surprises for me.

    If you have hands that leak this much oil, it's a problem regardless the color of the iPhone you get. I would rather have a phone that show me the nasty fat buildup on my phone and clean it rather that keep using the dirty phone and not know it. I always get black phones, but never had issue this extensive. Plus I wash my hands frequently, so I don't build up that much oil on lyrics skin.
    Not judging but OP must have pretty bad hand hygiene...lol

    The oleophobic coating on the iphone screen does not last. If you stick a screen protector on, or do not use your phone much, then yes it will last longer.

    That's not routine use. That's "keys in my pocket next to my cell phone and it scratched" kind of stuff right there.

    The only thing grosser perhaps is a telephone mouthpiece that's got moss growing out of it from all the foodstuff and nasties in it!

    No screen protector and I use my phone a lot. I touch the screen a lot working with photos and wallpapers. Looks new to me.

    Finger print does not really bother me at all. I have read several reviews and they all agreed that the Matte Black is very slippery while the Jet Black is not. So I am so glad that I have ordered the Jet Black.

    I have the matte and think it is much less slippery compared to last years iphone model. How that compares to the jet black I am not sure, but when I played with jet black in store, it didn't seem any more grippy than the matte.

    Unless your not using a case the color really doesn't matter to me. I picked a a rose gold and have a black case on it. Colors with a case will never be seen.
