    Hey Everyone. I was wondering if anyone had a great way or secret on how to get scratches off a Droid 2 screen. If anyone does I would love to hear it. Thanks to everyone who responds!

    look into headlight restoration kits at places like Pepboys/autozone.

    It works for headlight glass, don't see why it wouldn't work for phone glass.

    $10-$20

    Headlights restoration kits are basically wax. Try looking for an eye glass scratch remover kit. They are some type of filler

    Thanks guys for the help. I was wondering if you have tried eye glass repair kits or headlight repair kits? If you guys have how good did they work?

    Headlight repair kit i would imagine would be too strong of a product.

    these types of products actually require high rotation from a drill or even a polisher for them to work effectively.

    Stick to the eye glass repair kit, they're more delicate and more similar to the glass on our phones.

    easy...take some sand and rub it in.

    Yes i've taken my key to it to prove a point to people, but really i was scared lol.

    I saw a product on engadget that supposedly reduces smudges and chances of scratch by adding a layer of some sort of sealant, i'm thinking of using my car sealant to see how it works (Werkstat Acrylic Jett in case you're wondering)

    eye glasses would make better sense, if for nothing else, the amount. You don't need that much like a headlight restorer would give


    but, it's not just wax, in either case... it actually involves sanding the glass with VERY FINE sandpaper. I know, that sounds like it doesn't make sense, but it works.

    There are pastes that are abrasive. Some headlight restorers come with a drill bit attachment for rotation, some do not and just simply require elbow grease. Jeeps even have stuff for the plastic windows

    I have not done this to my droid, eye glass or vehicle headlights, or even jeep plastic windows, but it does work.


    go to an eyeglasses place and see what they have. I'm sure it's the same stuff as headlights, just portioned better for the smaller need.

    I've never dropped my phone, had a screen protector and case on it since I came out of the store, but when I took everything off to sell it... There was a scratch, I don't get it.

    Honestly, you can try to put a screen protector over it, you won't see it unless the scratch is huge.

    I'd recommend a cheap screen protector from eBay; it'll hide the scratch and help prevent any more from forming. :)
