Fixing scratches without changing screen?

I have unfortunately gotten two scratches on my FP, ironically while buying a pocket to protect it. It seems like a waste to buy a new screen for those two scratches, but they kind of bugs me. Do anyone know of a way to fix this kind of issue, and have their own experience of it? I’ve read about glue-like products that fills in the scratches, but haven’t heard of anyone actually trying them. Do you know of any other methods?

I’ve seen videos of people removing the front glass by using a heatgun to melt the glue that’s used to glue the front glass to the display unit. Then it can be replaced with a new glass pane. Problem is, even if you could do this with a FairPhone, I’m not aware of them selling just the glass panes.

Hi @Lovisan

You can try a little bit of toothpaste (not gel toothpaste but actual “cream” type toothpaste) on a q-tip, just rub on the scratches in a circular fashion until they “vanish”. Then you can wipe the screen with a damp cloth to remove all the excess. It works for some, if it doesn’t your FP will still smell minty fresh :wink:
