I've had mine for 23 days now and I do carry it a lot in my hand as the iphone Max is a big phone + all this bi case and it doesn't fit in my pocket. If it does fit in the pants or shorts I wear it's heavy so I just opt to carry it and it isn't dirty at all. Oh, I am a clean freak, washing hands often, sanitizing my car stereo knobs often, light switches, etc
Also, I used the plastic face shield given with the phone for shipping. It wraps the front and the back of the phone. It serves well as a shield that you would pay around $13 if bought separately.
