    To call myself out, I'm a 130lb, red-haired white guy with skin problems. My hands are oily and I have no fingerprint issues with my red lumia 920. It's far better than my samsung focus.

    In fact, maybe I'll make a youtube video about this showing off both phones.

    EDIT: Actually that's exactly what I'm going to do. Getting my video camera out now. :) If I had a 2nd lumia 920 I'd record it with the lumia 920.
    Here's my fingerprint smudge test. I compared the Nokia Lumia 920 with the Samsung Focus.

    I am on the fence between a glossy yellow and a matte black. I am scared that the glossy will be a fingerprint magnet. So is it? Does it smudge easily? Please advice me as to which to get.
    I have the glossy red and my wife has the glossy white. I like the finish.

    I didn't want matte - largely just because of the color - but also because when I see the finish I think of my keyboard. Where the keys have texture and over time they wear smooth in spots. To me I'd envision a matte phone wearing smooth spots much like a keyboard.

    As far as grip and things of that nature - I guess there are some folks with real sweaty palms out there - 'cause I have no issues maintaining a solid grip on my phone.

    Just sayin'!


    That's just me, obviously other opinions differ.

    I think the 'smudge test' that most are inquiring about is not for the display screen itself, but the back/back plate of each device.

    Thanks you all. I think i will just order a yellow 920 :D

    Now should I order it from ATT website? Is it hassel free? Will I get the yellow wireless charging plate?
    Usually it is hassle free. But the yellow orders are just now starting to ship. You may run into a delay.
