    I mean are these people morons? Did they eat fried chicken and hella greasy food then handle their phone. I mean what do they expect to happen?!

    Looking again if anything I think this finish masks the fingerprints more than people give it credit.

    At least it's on the back. Go look at my old S7E vid and no I had not dipped my hand in grease or had any fried chicken.


    Dat Screen Doe -- it would just grab on to oil and grime like no ones business and the back was no better.

    It died. All I know is it used to get real hot and then the screen started to fail and then it failed. Got it swapped out on warranty and my wife has the new one. I got a N7 and then...well you know the story there, so here I am waiting on my 1st (I'm going to give it a fair shot) iPhone.

    Seriously? Who slathers on that much lotion or oil/doesn't wash their hands after eating this is why I almost never use someone else's phone! Disgusting.

    You do realize that people have different skin and some are more prone to being oily on hands. So keep your bacon and KFC comments to yourself. You don't have to bash people who think that jet black is terrible idea.

    I don't see why people are making a big deal, it's the same glossy black that was on the old iPhone 3G and everyone loved it.

    How incredibly disgusting! In addition to washing your hands frequently, having a good microfiber cloth handy should help in keeping the jet black nice and shiny!

    I have oily skin, i take two showers daily and wash my face throughout the day when I get time. Also I wash my hands constantly. I've Never left finger prints like that on anything.

    Gross! If you choose to eat grease and not clean up, ANY phone will look like that. I know jet black is a fingerprint magnet, but come on! Don't handle your expensive devices while you're hands are dirty.

    It's Apple's fault. Or Obama's.

    I mean I have to use lotion otherwise...ashy...and I don't like to be ashy. One doesn't have to be a disgusting person for that type of thing to happen. It does look excessive though. It's even over the camera and everything. I'd imagine that person was intentionally trying to get fingerprints and smudges everywhere.

    Not really rocket science. Black glossy finish is going to show fingerprints etc.

    Lmao all the food comments, that's why I love you guys. But seriously I have beyond greasy hands (I obsessively wash them) and I touched a clean jet black and it was covered in finger prints.

    Those are pics posted in a reddit thread yesterday from someone who took them in an Apple Store where literally hundreds, if not thousands of people are touching that thing throughout the day. Imagine all the people wandering in there after eating fast food at the food court? I'm not at all a fan of owning the jet black because I think it shows a lot of fingerprints, but those are just an exaggeration.

    If you...

    just shoveled manure with with your bare hands
    ran your hands through Donald Trump's greasy toupee
    rubbed your hands all over a pepperoni pizza
    cleaned your toilet bare handed
    licked your hands after pigging out on ribs
    cleaned out your kitchen sink trap with bare hands
    changed the oil in your car with bare hands
    work at a rendering plant
    just had sex with Ted Cruz

    FOR PETE'S SAKE WASH YOUR HANDS WITH LAVA SOAP BEFORE HANDLING YOUR PHONE!!!

    Ahem. Sorry, I can almost smell my new phone in the distance, it's making me a wee bit unglued, lol.

    Not me. I hated it. It's one of the reasons why i'm not getting the Jet black iPhone this time.
