    Cheapest: buy dry-apply screen protectors from eBay.
    More expensive: buy tempered glass screen protector from eBay
    Most expensive: buy replacement screen+display, either replace it yourself or have a shop do it for you.

    As for getting rid of them? you're stuck with them. There is no way I've seen to get rid of them. Sorry!

    Any attempt to actually get rid of them will more than likely make it worse.

    I've had various smartphones in the last 6 years. With and without 'Gorilla glass'. Never with a screen protector. Yet I never had any scratches on the screen. Smudges plenty, but scratches none!
    But then my phone is always protected by a silicone bumper case so that the screen never touches e.g. a table's surface when it's upside down. Also the phone is never in a pocket together with items that can scratch, e.g. keys, coins, etc. Disposable tissues are the scratchiest stuff that ever touch the screen...
    That m.o. works, evidently.

    Will a screen protector cover it up nicely and hide it? Sorry, never tried. Do you recommend a mat screen protector or original?

    Depending how deep the scratches are, most screen protectors will hide them completely.

    Personally, I prefer regular screen protectors on my phones and matte/anti glare for tablets. Buy a cheap pack of each and see which you prefer
