Toothpaste works too!

I have tried it before, but it works better on plastic than glass. I guess glass is just too hard for the toothpaste to have noticeable effect. But might as well give it a try. At the worst it just won't make any difference at all.

don't waste your money on Displex it doesn't work on the Gorilla Glass, I've tried and failed.. Jewellers polish is the best solution.

Use Tin Oxide to remove scratches from glass and plastic

Well better late than never. I've been in this game since the 1980's..yikes and I can tell you without a doubt that the best glass and plastic scratch remover/polisher is Tin Oxide!! Get yourself some Tin Oxide from a pottery supplier. The best method is to mix some with a tiny amount of water to a toothpaste consistency and using a "Slightly Damp Soft CLEAN Cotton Cloth" or similar, rub in small circles. It might take a few goes but it will remove scratches in almost anything including glass, ABS, cellphones, sunglasses, baby monitors, jems and rock such as greenstone etc. It's also really good to cut and polish cars or any paint including urethane and lacquer etc as it wont pill into little balls as it cuts and stays on the cutting wheel, such as a woolen buffer, not flying off. Its also good to remove oxidized ABS (ie the white opaque look) from car headlight covers etc. It's really CHEAP and goes a long way. Remember its an oxide so probably best not to use it on things that could rust.
