    Best most fool proof way to get rid of your scratch is to buy a new Pre

    You can remove scratches from the Pre's screen, so long as we're talking light scratches that comes with every day wear-and-tear. I don't recommend my technique to everybody as it does take some practice.

    Let me preface this by saying that I am a watch collector and that in the watch community, the topic of how to remove scratches from either the watch's metal parts or its crystal is an oft-discussed matter. After years of trial and error, I finally hit on a relatively easy solution that worked wonders for my watch crystals and which I have used on my Pre as well.

    Most of my watch crystals are sapphire and incredibly scratch-resistant in the first place (would that the Pre had such a screen, right?) but that doesn't mean they're scratch proof. Every now and then, a scratch appears and since this would irritate the hell out of me, I tested various ways to remove them. By far the best and easiest method was to use a diamond paste (1 and 1/4 micron grit) and simply rub it on with my finger and a drop of water. This worked wonders.

    I figured I would use the 1/4 micron on the Pre and lo and behold, most of the light scratches were gone in a minute. It does take some practice to apply the paste in a consistent manner but it does work. Just a quick aside but DO NOT use any diamond paste with a grit larger than 1/4 micron or you will damage the Pre's screen. Don't forget the screen is plastic and diamond paste will easily erode the surface.

    I hope this helps and though it may sound daunting at first, it's really not. I do remember reading a while back some guy that posted about how he used car wax to wax and polish his Pre. That made me laugh but the concept is similar.

    ^ Alright you got me interested. I have a few light scratches on the Pre, two of which I can still see when the screen is turned on. Nothing terrible, but I'd like to get rid of them if possible.

    So I won't end up with a "cloud" surrounding the scratch after I rub it in?

    Where do I get this stuff online? I'm ready to buy some.

    First off, no you shouldn't get a cloud around the scratch unless you're using paste that's the wrong size grit. Google the following and make your choice of where to buy: "diamond paste 1/4 micron". Again though, I recommend you practice on something first just to get the hang of it. If you have an old dumb-phone you don't use anymore, that's an excellent candidate to try on.
