To make scratches go away? Nothing...except for a new screen.

 

To try to stop new ones, look at film based screen protectors rather than tempered glass. The one from LiQuidSkin seems good for some of my family members who have the Z2 Force. However, any film protector at this point may also make existing scratches stand out more...you'll have to test to see if this is acceptable.

 

Your screen is already shatterproof, so tempered glass is not really needed. Also, properly applied film protectors will hug the laminate plastic front screen better.

 

A few warnings...you really MUST watch the installation video from the manufacturer for a film based screen protector before applying...heck, you probably want to do that before even BUYING one, and more than once for good measure to make sure you have the procedure down. Watch the video on a separate device from the phone you will be installing it on, as your phone will be off during the installation procedure. If you don't have a 2nd device to do this on, make your own installation checklist for each step from the video on paper. Another warning...you are supposed to let the film set for 12 to 24 hours after installation, so plan appropriately to not have use of your phone for that long.

 

Also, note the position of all the sensors and microphone hole (tiny) on the front screen...when you lay down the screen protector, DO NOT cover any of these up, ESPECIALLY the mic pickup. You will be able to slide the protector into position slightly to align it. Be ready with a dry paper towel to suck up excess moisture, especially around the mic pickup once you have properly installed the film.

 

And again...remember to leave your phone off for close to 24 hours....this is mostly so any excess moisture can dry off.

 

A question/response entry for the LiQuidSkin screen protector on Amazon at one point mistakenly listed each box comes with three films...it comes with one, not three.

This screen protector has worked very well for me since day 1. No scratches on my screen because I put this on the day I got the phone.

That's the same screen protector I have.  And I agree.  It works perfectly.

The only truly stupid question is the one you SHOULD have asked - but DIDN'T.

Made the mistake of getting a Supershieldz glass screen protector and installing it the moment I received the phone. Very bad screen glare and huge fingerprint magnet made it unusable in sunlight or with car dash mount. After removing Supershieldz, was surprised at how great the Moto Z2 Force factory screen performs. Minimal screen glare and very slightly shows fingerprints after much use, both fine in direct sunlight and in car mount during peak sunshine.

How does the IQ Shield LiQuidSkin (non-matte version) perform in sunlight and with fingerprints? Does it add glare, and if so, minimal or extreme glare like the Supershield adds? I do not wish to get a matte SP and greatly distort the image the phone was made to produce. Plus, the stock screen does not need anti-glare protector.

Thanks
