Default I've got a scratch on my screen, any way to fix?

I've managed to get a scratch on my screen of my m8, it's not very deep but noticeable in sunlight.

I just wondered if anyone knew of anyway to repair / reduce it without damaging it further or losing touch sensitivity?

Cheers

Prevention is better than a cure for this. There are some very good glass screen protectors around these days like the nillkin tempered glass protector.

Might be worth putting one on yours to hide the scratch.

There's not much you can do.

If you buff the screen to take the scratch off, you'll most likely take the coating on the coating on the screen. Which would cause more scratches.

I'd put a screen protector on it to hide the scratch.

Like above, but gonna throw in the once free screen replacement from HTC but i would wait and see if you really need it, then in a few months you have an accident

(but look into the terms etc before you do this!!)
HTC One (M8) Stock, S-Off, Rooted / Nexus 4 -Rooted Stock
Previous Devices, HTC One X, HTC DesireHD, and a long list..........

Anyone able to recommend any decent screen protectors? I will look up that nillikin one.

Well I don't think that the HTC screen replacement is valid in the UK I'm afraid. USA only!

I bought these on Ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1911257647...84.m1497.l2649

Very impressed with the quality and at only 1.99 really can't complain.

*Just noticed that you're in the US! I'm sure there will be an equally good ones available on your side of the pond.
