    Hi Everyone,

    Im torn between the space gray and the silver. I have the white iPhone 5, but I am considering the grey and curious if the black front on the space gray shows alot of fingerprints?

    Thanks!

    The black front? You mean the retina display? If so, it will more than likely show fingerprints.

    No, I don’t see fingerprints on my Space Gray phone... of course, the screen will fingerprint and smudge, but all glass surfaces will, to a point.

    And they clean up rather nicely with a micro fiber cloth. Have one with me in the car and every where I go with my phone.

    IMHO, the Black front on the Space Gray 5S is a fingerprint magnet. Even with a finger print reduced screen saver on the finger prints were still able to be seen on my Space Gray 5S. I returned the Space Gray model back to Best Buy for this reason.

    I had the white 4s and now the black 5s. IMO they are about the same.

    The 5s is no different than an iPhone 5. The glass will show fingerprints but that is why you rock a screen protector. Then if it bothers you, I'm OCD so it bothers the hell out of me, you wipe off the fingerprints with your shirt, cloth, microfiber like someone suggested.

    Same here. I have a ZAGG on the 5S and had one on the 4S. No fingerprints here.
