One of the coolest new features of the 3GS is its special new oleophobic screen coating. This special coating makes the iPhone 3GS fingerprint-resistant. That's why the new iPhone is so easy to clean, and stays so nice and readable even after heavy use without a wipe-down. As cool as this new feature is, it's possible that the coating does not hold up well to continuous use.

Yesterday MacRumors.com brought us reports from a German Apple fan forum that brought to light an issue with the oleophobic screen. He posted pictures of his 3GS screen, on which the special coating looks like it's started to wear off.
The user blames this on playing way too much Flick Fishing, an iPhone game that makes players use a repetitive circling motion on their screen to reel in their line. That man must play a ton of Flick Fishing if he's worn through his coating so quickly.

Take this complaint with a grain of salt. I haven't seen any other similar complaints, so this could just be a localized issue. If there is a problem with the screen we'll start seeing a lot of evidence after the iPhone community at large has another month or two to wear out their screens.
