    IMO you may be out of luck.
    Prepare to buy another if it bothers you.
    I think your only option will be to use the Novus or McGuires Plastic polishes and a buffer wheel on a Dremil tool.
    But that may make it worse.
    As an out of the box idea you could try a clear plastic screen film like Xpel as camouflage.
    Perhaps another co-member has had success buffing a screen scratch and can advise.
    Good luck if you try.

    Thank you Kenny for your response... my friend will buff it out carefully, he works at a body shop, he said that it might help reducing it ... i will let you know...i have tried 4 different liquids and none worked but then i realized that it isn't even a scratch, it is some kind of mark or something...

    I'll bet a lot of viewers are quietly googling screen protectors. Would that work, it being a touch screen?

    That sucks bye the way.

    Yeah, just thinking: iPhones (for example) use glass. (n)

    it would have been nice if they used glass ;-) glass scratches are easier to remove ...
