Has the touchscreen glass improved?

    As I mentioned on a prior post I had the 25k service and at that time the service center ended up taking out my old touchscreen and giving me a new one (had a minor problem where I would have occasional frozen screen with "contact tesla service")

    On my prior screen I had a protective film placed (ocean abstract) with anti fingerprint properties (which after time started showing fingerprints but still not as bad as without film)

    I've had the current touchscreen now for about 2 wks. Haven't put a protective film on it and have noticed that fingerprints are essentially gone (really have to make an effort to try and leave one now for testing) Wonder if it is due to an improvement by tesla but that was the one thing that drove me nuts on the prior one having fingerprints literally everywhere. .

    Just curious if newer model owners also having no issues with fingerprints on screen surface

    Hope mine gets swapped out too then. This is one of just three things which wind me up - but certainly a first-world problem for sure. Even the AO screen isn't great at keeping them off, but way better than stock.

    AO HD clear screen is 1000x better than no protection imo

    I put on my AO matte screen immediately at delivery. It showed fingerprints while DS was taking my wife through touchscreen controls. I immediately cleaned and affixed and haven't had an issue in a month.

    On my 2014 I have to look carefully to see the fingerprints. They stand out in cleaning mode, but I don't use the screen in that mode. Perhaps it's down to individual skin condition?

    I definitely think skin type has an effect for sure (oily I would suspect be the worst), but since I was pretty much the only user both before and after the swap I served as my own control. The only thing might be temperature I guess since it is clearly winter now (but I still can't remember having such a clean screen last winter).
