How to remove Screen Scratch from your Samsung S20?

Common causes of screen scratches include keeping the phone in a pocket or bag with hard objects like keys or coins, accidental drops onto rough surfaces, and using non-screen-friendly cleaning tools or materials. Regular use without screen protection can also lead to wear and tear over time.

Here are some simple DIY solutions to fix screen scratches on your phone, allowing you to restore its appearance with minimal effort and cost:

Using Toothpaste

  • Apply a small amount of toothpaste on a piece of tissue paper.
  • Rub it over the scratched area of the screen.
  • Let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Wipe off with a fresh tissue paper soaked in water.
  • Repeat if necessary.

Using a Quality Scratch Remover

  • Clean your device with a microfiber cloth.
  • Apply a small portion of scratch remover on a clean microfiber cloth or buffer pad.
  • Rub in a circular motion for 5-7 minutes (or longer for deeper scratches).
  • Wipe away the residue with a clean, dry cloth.

Using Baking Soda Mixture:

  • Combine two parts baking soda with one part water to form a paste.
  • Gently rub the paste into the scratch with a soft cloth.
  • Rinse with a damp cloth and dry.

Using Cerium Oxide:

  • Mix cerium oxide with water to create a slurry.
  • Apply the mixture to the scratch and polish with a soft cloth or pad.
  • Clean the area thoroughly after polishing.

Using Car Scratch Removal Creams:

  • Clean the screen with a microfiber cloth.
  • Apply the cream to a soft cloth and rub into the scratch in a circular motion.
  • Wipe off the excess product and buff the screen dry.

Reiterate that DIY methods are primarily effective for very minor, superficial scratches. For anything deeper, professional help might be the better investment.

How do I get scratches out of my Samsung S20 screen?

The effectiveness of scratch removal depends on the depth of the scratch:

  • Very Light Scratches (Hairline):
  • Toothpaste: Apply a tiny bit of non-gel toothpaste to a microfiber cloth and rub in gentle circles. Wipe away residue.
  • Car Scratch Remover: Some products formulated for car paint may work on very minor scratches.
  • Deeper Scratches: These are unlikely to be fully removed with home remedies. You might temporarily minimize their appearance with vegetable oil or a dedicated phone scratch remover product, but the effect won’t be permanent.

If you cannot fix this by yourself, bring it to Phone Repair Centre right now!

Does Samsung repair scratched screens?

It depends. If the scratches are minor, they might not warrant a full repair. If functionality is impacted or the scratches are severe, Samsung will replace the screen for a fee.

Is the Samsung S20 screen scratch resistant?

Yes, it uses Gorilla Glass 6, which offers a degree of scratch resistance. However, no screen is completely scratch-proof.

How do you get scratches out of a Samsung phone?

  • The same methods described earlier apply (toothpaste, car scratch remover).
  • Always be gentle and realistic about expectations with deeper scratches.

Can I buff scratches out of my phone?

For very light scratches, gentle buffing with the right materials (microfiber cloth, toothpaste) can help. Deeper scratches are unlikely to disappear completely with buffing.

Will Magic Eraser remove screen scratches?

Avoid using a Magic Eraser! It’s too abrasive and might cause more damage to your screen.

Quan trọng hơn, chúng tôi sẽ giới thiệu các dịch vụ sửa chữa chuyên biệt có sẵn tại Trung tâm Sửa chữa Điện thoại và các giải pháp mà họ cung cấp để khôi phục màn hình S20 của bạn về trạng thái ban đầu, đảm bảo rằng thiết bị của bạn duy trì các tiêu chuẩn hiệu suất cao.
