" it should be able to kill 99.9% of the germs"
It seems like a toothpaste ad lol...

Colgate Optic White - kills up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria with repeated use.

Because there is never a guarantee that it will kill 100% of germs.

There is also a huge market for smartphones that don't have the anti-microbial glass - anti-microbial screen protector, anyone?

Cool, but I'll stick with sub $10 screen protectors. XD

I recall a 2008 study that estimated 47% of devices had fecal matter on them, this in an era where relatively few had smartphones, arguably handled more than your old RAZR flip.
I can only imagine how bad things are now.

Silver tastes terrible. This is going to put a damper on my afternoon screen licking sessions.

Great first step to making technology not like us as germ/bug infested humans..
I was hoping for more time before this.

germophobes are idiots though who don't understand the human immune system; this isn't going to actually help anyone or anything, this is just marketing.
