I have scratched and some tiny holes in edges of my hox . It happens while i drop my hox from 5 feet. And the sand made those scratches.

Is that possible to get removed?

I've used displex on a screen before (not my hox). I wouldn't recommend it it is far too abrasive.

I haven't tried this liquid before, but I have gone to a small shop in my country and they somehow managed to remove some scratches on my HOX, well, just the small or not so obvious one, the big one can only be "fade" away but they are still there. They said that I shouldn't take my phone to remove the scratches too often, I should only have it done for maximum of 3 or 4 times, because it's not really good for the glass

I agree. I think the whole point of a "scratch remover" is simply a marketing strategy.

It sounds pretty ridiculous to have the scratch removed, as scratch is an actual physical damage, the chemical composition is permanently altered.

(this is where alchemy comes into the play..... just kidding.)

From my understanding, the scratch removers are not actually removing the scratch.

They actually scratch away the rest of the layer which may look as though it has "removed" the scratch.

This is why they will tell you to not do it often, as your screen will become nothing over time, and this is also why one of the other users has said that it was "abrasive" as this is what they are for.

Hope this helps
