Default best screen protector and what to do against small scratches?

hey guys, whats the best screen protector? or is a simple sock like for mobiles just fine?

I have a really really tiny scratch and therefor was thinking to get screen protection but also wanted to ask how to best get rid of scratches.

is there a specific scratch remover for gorilla glass? or would Displex (http://www.amazon.de/Acctel-DISPLEX-...0890169&sr=1-2) just work fine?

Cheers

I personally use 3M Clear Bra and cut it to fit whatever DAP i'm putting it on. Its the strongest screen protector I've found.

Its built to go on the front bumper of automobiles and such. Its a bit expensive, but well worth the money IMO.
I believe most scratch removers are built for working with plastic screens not glass ones such as the J3.

I heard a product called NOVUS that is very good removing scratches, but I think it's only for plastic or acrylic screens. I don't know if there is a glass scratch remover.

Default Screen protector

Sorry to hear you scratched your J3. I immediately purchased some realook screen protection film for my J3 and it has worked great with no loss of screen sensitivity. I also bought a basic, cheap Cowon case and that has held up nicely. But I must admit that it has only been tested on a carpeted floor. Best of luck getting rid of that scratch.

Well, I did read somewhere on abi that Apple Sauce is good against scratches. I suppose it works on all kinds of glass, but I need some confirmation on that though.

Been searching here and there and I guess you're right. It does say plastic on their website and I haven't seen it mentioned clearly yet that it works for glass too. My mistake ^^

For "the best" protection I'd go with a padded hard case as even the best soft cases will fail when you get some grit inside and apply pressure.

No clue how you'd remove scratches from a piece of glass. Maybe ask an optician?
