Anyone tried ceramic coating on a phone?

The oleophobic coating my LG G6 has worn out a lot compared to when it was fresh, I can just grab a screen protector now with a oleophobic coating on it and it'll last for a good year and I can keep swapping them to keep it fresh.

Logical way aside I was thinking, the ceramic coating people use for their cars that also doesn't let water settle on it and I assume also reduces fingerprints, can you use that as oleophobic coating of sort?

I don't know if lotus leaf coating are durable enough.

What i can tell you that other liquid display protections which are not using the lotus effect slightly decrease the chance of breaking the glass and only last around 6 month before they wear out.

But that's quite better than the smudgy mess once there is no coating on the screen

Why not just buy a kit to put a new coating on your phone's screen?

I thought about it but it's just seems more sensible to just grab a screen protector with it already applied on it plus get the benefit of screen protector.

 

 

 

I made this thread out curiosity mainly if anyone had it lying around and gave it a try

Ceramic coating used in the detailing industruy is surely not cheap enough to consider for something like this is it?

A 5ml bottle that I used for my wheels cost £20, how much are you paying for your screen protectors currently?

Well aware, the car side of me was just curious if it works good as or even better than the factory oleophobic coating

In my experience the ceramic coating simply makes the surface easier to clean, not necessarily giving the high beading finish that you're after. I mean it can in some situations, but generally there are other better products for that.  And I'm not sure how well the'd last with the repetitive contact nature of a phone screen.

The brake dust cleans off my wheels with ease, but they rarely exhibit signs of beading whilst they're being cleaned. The product I used was G-techniq C5.
