Is iPhone and iPad oleophobic coating damaged by protective films?

If I apply one of the many screen protecting films and later remove it, will the oleophobic coating be preserved?

  • I had a iPhone 4 and I was using protective film. After using protective film for year and after removing it I noticed that my phone screen was always greasy. Now I have a iPhone 5 and no protective film and the screen stays clean.
