Anyone able to suggest what i coud use to clean the screen before i put a protector on,
Acetone / nail varnish remover does a good job.
i just use whoever happens to be sitting in front of me on the bus.
I am afraid you can't use acetone for cleaning the screen. It is too aggres.sive and it can slightly dissolve the surface of the screen. Try to buy some screen cleaning fluids which are for LCD monitors or plasmas. This should do the trick
The hair of young vestal virgins work best, right?
Seriously though, op, breath on it and wipe it with a soft, lint-free cloth!
That depends on what you're trying to clean off of the screen.
Um, no comment here.
I just use a case mate cloth that came with a casemate screen protector.
Similar here; my new HD Flat Panel TV came with a nice cloth to wipe the screen with. It's now my phone screen wiper.
If you're cleaning it prior to fitting a screen protector, I'd suggest that after you've used whatever you've used, give it a quick blast with a can of compressed air to remove any tiny bits of dust that have been attracted by static from the cleaning.
I just use isopropyl; cleans well, evaporates nearly instantly.
If your cleaning just before putting a protector on then use a strip of sellotape,it works wonders for getting small bits of dust off.
Breath and microfibre works for me ,but i like a few bubbles under mine,each to their own
I bought some Brasso Gadgetcare. It is a thick-ish liquid which comes with a microfibre cloth. You put a couple of drops on the screen, rub it on in circular movements, and polish it to a shine. Keeps the screen free of fingerprints for ages and makes it really shiny. Brilliant stuff. I also use it on my laptop, TV and PC screen.
I would not use any solvents or other liquids to clean the screen.
Instead jsut buy a microfibre cloth which will clean anything off the screen with nothing more than a bit of breath!. It will also comes in handy to safely clean your PC and TV screen so its well worth outlay. Given the cost of the phone and the importance of the screen for both vision and touch control, the cloth (I bought 3 for
Damn! What the hell is it doing to my nails then?
I agree with this post. That brasso stuff got a good review in custompc mag.
You could also try good ol spit n polish.
I second the breath plus microfibre cloth. Great on any glass surface (I even let them loose on my car) and no chemicals.
Wipe the dust off and then thoroughly clean it with a microfibre cloth.
Did that couple of months ago, the protector is still on.

Breath and whatever i wear at the time: jeans, t-shirt, sweater, skirt... And no, I don't use a screen protector. It's a glass screen, people!
Exactly. Mine's coming up to a year old, kept in my jeans pocket all the time and not got a scractch on it - screen or anywhere else.
I wonder if that glass screen would be able to survive my drunken nights out without the screen protector im using
You don't really need a screen protector for a glass screen, since there are few things that can actually scratch glass.
According to The Mohs Scale, materials can only be scratched by harder materials....and glass ranks pretty high, meaning that it can't be scratched by lesser ranking materials such as Silver, Gold, Copper, etc.
So unless you're carrying something made of steel, diamond, or quartz in your pocket with your phone then you're not gonna scratch the screen.
My last phone was a Nokia and it had a cheap plastic screen. Needless to say that after a few months it had several visible scratches all over the screen. I've now had my Desire for 6 months and don't have a single scratch....and I've treated it no differently to my Nokia.
