Question HTC Diamond Scratch Removal

Does anyone know how to remove some minor to moderate hailine scratches from my touch Diamond screen? I know the screen is plastic and I believe untreated and there are several products out there that claim to be able to remove these. I tried toothpaste but that did not work, from what I could see. Anyway these are normal scratches a typical phone accumulates over time. I can barely see them when the screen is on, but it is still annoying. Also, I do not and will not use a case or scratch protector, so if anyone has had success or thinks they know a solution for removing these scratches that would be fantastic.

Here are a couple product links: http://www.displex.com/polish/english/index.htm
http://www.thewatchprince.com/s.nl/it.A/id.143/.f
http://www.command-tab.com/2005/07/0...ratch-removal/


Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Re: HTC Diamond Scratch Removal

I should be getting applesauce polish in the mail today. I'll be sure to let you know how well it works (I have rather deep scratchs too). Maybe I'll even charge up my old mogul to send some pics.

Re: HTC Diamond Scratch Removal

Well i got it and i used it... My scratchs seemed way to deep I did like 30 applications and it started to create a weird wareing mark between the scratchs so I decided to stop. They are definately smoother tho and i can realy feel them when my finger slides across them like before. All the little scratchs are completely gone. Very impressed. I didnt expect it to solve my deap scratchs.

Cool Re: HTC Diamond Scratch Removal

Hey congratulation!!! At least you got your little scratches off. Mine are all relatively small, so I will probably order mine in the next few days since it worked moderately well for you. I have tried about everything but applesauce and displex, and I have heard a lot of people complain that displex ruins the screen so I will see what happens with applesauce.

Re: HTC Diamond Scratch Removal

Yea displex is way to apreasive for plastic. This apple sauce is good. I had scratchs from my school ID digging into it in my pocket while I was skateboarding across campus. They were perty deep. I might be buying a 25 dolar replacement screen of ebay. But yea gave it a better then new shine I think lol. It does what it suppose to and that is to polish. Kit is like 20 bucks and comes with everything you need. O and make sure you have a flash card to cut up to get the polish out of all the cracks when your done .
