But these scratches look like spider web lines and when the screen is off and I'm inside, you can't see a single scratch from any angle. Kind of confused about that?

    EDIT: ^Ahh so it's the coating in this situation that has the scratches?
    It depends on the knife. Regular steel knives will not scratch it. Certain stainless steel knives will depending on the carbon content.

    And it also depends on the amount of quartz that is present in the glass mixture. Quartz makes glass stronger.

    The main draw of Gorilla glass and similar tempered glasses is the pressure resistance. Meaning that if you sit on it or press up against something it won't crack as easily.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    Use your finger tip and work it in..

    My screen just has a bunch of small scratches (I'm assuming on the coating since I can only see them in direct sunlight), so applying toothpaste all over my screen would be okay? And do you remove it with water or what?

    If its just the coating. Then don't do it or you'll take more of it off..

    I forgot that the some screens are coated.. motos aren't. But what you would do is apply a small bit of tooth paste to your finger tip, and work it over the scratch/es it will remove minor scratches.. very deep scratches, it will lessen the appearance of.

    It WILL REMOVE any coating.. so if you're coated.. don't do this.

    Gorilla Glass is made with a process that causes it to always be in a state of compression. What you are seeing are likely microimperfections in the glass itself, and not surface scratches.

    You say Motos don't have coating? But before you said it will take the coating off, I'm kind of confused lol

    Which screen protector is top notch for this device anyhow?

    Interesting. Does that mean I am not responsible for the scratches, and that it's normal? Cause like I said, even under a light bulb you can't see them but the sunlight brings out all the imperfections :/

    Best to not worry about it, put a zagg (or something similar) to stop future scratches, and enjoy!
