    bought a Lumia 520 for $50 from amazon. it arrived yesterday.
    Upon opening I notice that the screen get dirty, oily, and full of fingerprints within minutes of use.
    Is there an oleophobic coating on the screen?
    I'm thinking that they may have skipped that to save cost.

    I don't even think it has Gorilla Glass. Other Nokia phones say Corning Gorilla Glass under "Display and User Interface". The 520 does not: Nokia Lumia 520 - Specifications - Nokia - USA

    No it does not have the coating. And I wouldn't be disappointed by it. You bought it for $50, you should be amazed that you can get such a snappy, nifty, responsive phone for that much. It's a win.

    They skipped out on the glass enhancements. No oleophobic coating, no gorilla glass, no clearblack polarization, no backlight on the capacitive buttons, but surprisingly, it has super sensitive touch.

    Just what do you want for 50 bucks? And, it still cleans faster and easier than my BlackBerry did.
