    I have a few scratches that a minor but slightly visible on my iphone 4s,
    What can I do?
    I know there is a Oleophobic Coating which needs to be taken care off

    Is it possible to buy a antiglare screen or screen protector and have it cover up some of the scratches?

    Thank You

    This is the only issue that I have with my iPhone 5, the scratches and the dings. I have a case and a zag shield on it, but the edges are all scarred up.

    unfortunately a screen shield might not help you. If the underlying screen is scratched then the screen shield will bubble. I would try one of the wet type install screen shields. That might give you the best chance for success.

    you could not pay me to use Zagg ever again. went thru 3 Zaggs and the end result was the exact same - peeling. i do not use a case and always keep my phone in my pocket. yeah, they worked great for about 2 weeks but then the edges would start to peel. very frustrating

    then i purchased a Wrapsol (full body) right around thanksgiving last year and there is not even a hint of the edges wanting to peel up. very satisfied for what i need for my everyday use

    I don't like zagg either. I was not a fan of the ripple effect on the screen.

    I love Zagg. Installed the day i got my i5 (Sept last yr) and no problems at all. I was scared too (first wet install). But i have also kept mine in an otterbox and bookbook so no naked phone corner scratch feedback to give.

    John please don't ban me

    I disagree with you. If the underlying screen is not pristine then air bubbles will show up.

    I've been leary of Zagg the amount of moisture needed to install has kept me away.

    I put a Zagg on my wife's 5, she loves it. The key is to follow the directions to the *letter*.
