the plastic on back of course will show more smudges than an aluminum back. The glassright now in the v2 may just have some adhesive properties because it just came outta the box a few days ago. Within time the dirtying and cleaning process should alleviate the tendency to smugde as much. You know, kinds like oiling a pan so food won't stick?
I use screen covers and they smudge very little without sacrificing key response.
I have definitely noticed that the smudginess seems harder to erase with a little wiping. And yesterday I accidentally got a few tiny droplets of watermelon juice on my phone and didn't notice until they were dry... they were NOT coming off for the life of me.
I thought the fingerprint/smudge thing was probably only seeming worse because of the increased use, but now I'm thinking that the adhesive theory mentioned above makes sense.
I may also just be feeling pickier about the need for perfection because it's brand new.
there is a clear film product that is custom cut for the v2 and keeps it from scratching and getting a lot of those smudge marks www.gadgetguard.com it is the same material that is used for clear bras on cars they just cut it to fit any kind of phone I have it on my ipod already and just put it on my v2 today i can hardly tell its on there but yeah I can tell you that it the v2 smudges a lot more
