    Default Fix hairline scratches on screen?

    Any way to fix hairline scratches on the screen? Surprised by how susceptible the screen is to the tiniest of scratches.

    Gorilla Glass it ain't. I have the same problem, put a keychain in my pocket without thinking once.

    My Nexus had a couple hairline scratches. I tried all of the fixes that you find on google and nothing worked. Luckily I was having data issues so I needed to get a replacement anyway. As soon as I got the refurbished phone I got ghost armor for the screen... wasn't taking any more chances.

    So, to answer the question... I don't think anything will get the scratches completely away. Something like ghost armor might diminish its appearance though.

    Yes, a screen protector will help to hide any thinner scratches but usually the deeper ones will show up. I have had the best luck with the screen protectors from Screenguardz. They're pretty smooth to the touch as compared to a stickier material that is just annoying during use and the anti-glare feature is fantastic in bright situations.

    If you want to buff out the scratches, use a microfiber cloth with a buffing compound designed specifically for the material that the lens is made out of (i.e. Glass, Acrylic, or Gorilla Glass). Some compounds made for a specific surface could damage other materials, so pick the right one.

    These guys have a compound series that looks pretty legit so you might see what they have to offer.

    Hope this helps!
