Default Screen Polish to get rid of scratches?

So my Nexus 5 took a bad spill today and the top part of the back cover kind of popped loose and there was a faint scratch on the screen. I popped the hinge back into the phone so that seems to be okay but this faint scratch is about 2.5 inches long on the screen. I can't actually feel the scratch but I can see it. Does anybody know of a polish to help conceal this?

Sorry to hear about your device's tumbled fall - so much for those with naked preference. Ours are heavily protected ...

Being that it's GG3 with special coating - not so sure what will work w/o making it worse, you might want to try to contact these folks via email & see what they recommend (and whether their products will mitigate somewhat) - https://www.klearscreen.com/

Good luck !

Do not use polish or any abrasive chemicals on the screen. Because it has special coatings applied to repel fingerprints and reduce friction etc. Using a polish will remove those layers and may make the screen look worse. If the scratch annoys you too much, try putting on a screen protector, or a tempered glass screen shield on top, that may hide the scratch. Whats more that will also protect your screen from stuff like in the future.
