Is there any way at all to remove scratches from my screen?

Short answer - no.

Long answer - all sorts of snakeoil claims out there, but is it worth the risk of worsening things? For me, no way

I've got one small scratch mid-screen, learnt to live with it..

I feared that would be the response, unfortuanetly my 11 month old daughter decided to drag it across the floor and it now has several minor scrathes on the screen and as you can imagine I am NOT happy!

You'll need a heat gun and bags of courage. [Insert standard responsibility disclaimer here]

You can use certain glass cutters and they will remove scratches. I did so on my sgs i. works a treat if u fancy polishing for 2 hrs

The only problem will be you will remove the oiliophobic coating and fingerprints will show on the areas you have polished out but if you fit a screen protector on after the polish it wont cause an issue.

P.s id just like to add a disclaimer to do at yer own risk. Pm me if you want details on what i used. The finish on my sgs was fine once cleaned but the polished areas just collected fingerprints a lot more than other areas of the screen that hadnt been rubbed down. thats why a screen protector is recomended afterwards

Hi there. Care to post the details here, so everyone can benefit from it?

I have one minor scratch, but it's driving me nuts.
