    Has anyone used the hp pen on their phone? I've got a kit being delivered this week and was considering it.

    Can't find anything in the forum or online strangely enough. I'm sure it wouldn't harm it?

    Then after you treat it, dunk it underwater and see how well it works...

    Interesting, just read up on it. I believe mine has worn off, the phone is about a year old. It gets smudgy very easily, noticeably easier than when I got it.
    I wanted to do that! I saw an ad for how they're waterproof now lol ;)

    UPDATE: cleaned phone screen really good and applied the treatment. And it's amazing. The coating that came with the phone had definitely worn off.

    With clean or just washed hands the screen now doesn't register any marks when touching, and glides like a cloud again.

    If you're getting active or the day is progressing and you start producing more oils and stuff it'll mark the phone a bit but still nothing like it was before.

    Loving it.
