Hi, do you solve this problem yet?
Mine 3 days old lumia 920 got same issue around the Nokia logo area.. the grease stains there easily but can be wiped off by clothe.
I think the oleophobic coating effect is worn off there.

Just check my old iphone 4. Around the home button, it shows same symptom as the coating for anti finger prints worn off over years.
I think this isn't a big deal for me anymore, even its on my new Nokia Lumia 920. Couple months later, it will be the same anyway.
Also, I check with my coworkers' Lumia 920, 4 of them, all have this issue. One of them is even much worse, since the coating has been mostly worn off, fingerprints, greases can easily stay all over the screen (no screen protector attached).

This is not the same issue but I need help and it is related to the screen: I have my 920 for just 10 days (unlocked and ordered online) It arrived in perfect condition but today a thin line of dead pixels appeared from top to bottom in the screen. Due to the "retina like" resolution of the screen it may be possible that the pixels are not dead but that one of the color components is set to zero or something like that. The point is, there is a line and don't go away no matter what I do. The phone was never hit, dropped or damaged in any way so I don't know what to do.
I know the obvious answer: ask for a replacement. But I'd like to know if this is a frequent failure or if any of you has heard about it.
Thanks for comments.

I had the same issue with my red Lumia 920. I noticed that the oleo-phobic coating around the earpiece was virtually not there. I chalked it up to a manufacturing defect. Since I didn't want to have to deal with the hassle of sending the phone back or waiting for a replacement one, I bought this stuff called fusso online to see if it could restore the coating in that odd spot. After applying it like fifty times (and I'm not joking), it is now gone. I also had to deal with the lint in the front facing camera as well. A can of high pressure air blew it out.
That having been said... When I bought the Lumia 920, I went in with the expectations that "they're not apple." So the product is not perfect in it's build. It more than makes up for it with the other qualities.. Camera quality... especially in low light conditions. It's also a very sturdy phone.
If you're like me, and want your phone to look absolutely perfect, then this phone is probably not the one to get. However, from reading the rest of these posts, it looks like Nokia has fixed the glass coating defect. So other than dust in the ff lens, this is a great phone! I wish microsoft allowed more freedom in customizing the tile colors and offering more shades to choose from.

Dunno about u guys, but before Lumia920 I had iPhone4, and iPhone3G, and Nokia E61 before that... I have got used to do an instant wipe off the screen as soon as I finished doing anything with it, no matter if I just finshed a call, texted some1, or just checked something on the web. It is perfectly normal for grease to stay on the screen, and there is no olephobic coating that will not catch some stains from ur fingers, or cheeks. Just do a nice wipe with ur shirt or something. I have some extraweight, so I can easily wipe it with the phone pressed to my belly :DCeterum censeo, Androidam delendam esse!

Same here, and not only that. After two weeks of usage the screen has developed some sort of fuzziness...ok, I'll try to explain: it looks like pixelated, especially when viewing white content, but actually it's not. It's more like there was some dirt in between the glass and the screen. I'll try to get this one replaced or repaired Quite annoying tho because this is the second time: first the flickering issues, now this other screen bs, maaaan....

I know this is a super late reply, but what you're looking at towards the top is evidence that in a previous life, the screen glass had a screen protector attached to it.
The rectangular pattern is from the shape of a cutout on the protector to accommodate for (from right to left): the earpiece, front-facing camera, and the proximity sensor. As this area is exposed, it is likely that any oleophobic coatings were damaged or worn off.
