Hey folks,

I'm looking to buy a used phone on ebay. The description says that the screen has a slight scratch on it that can't be seen when the phone is turned on...only when it's off. Having never had a scratch on any of my phone's screens, I can't easily verify that claim. Does this have the ring of truth to it?

If you've had a slight scratch on your screen, does it really only appear when the phone is off? What about when the screen is dim? Or what about at different angles, etc? Does it pretty much always just disappear?

Thanks

I have super tiny (1/100 of a millimeter in width) ones that are only visible when the light (only direct sunlight) hits it just right, other than that I forget that they are even there

Probably from being placed in a pocket

I even have a dent on the screen and it's barely visible when the LCD's on, so a hairy scratch that won't be noticed while the screen is on sounds like true
