Just take some of this with a microfiber cloth and rub the hell out of it, it will take car of the swirls.

So everyone was complaining how the aluminum scratches, but the glass fared much much worse and it'd be no different on the 4/4S.

Have fun getting the excess polish/wax out of the gaps between glass and aluminum frame.

Thumbs up Touch Screen Protector and Compound

If the scratches are more prominent on the touch screen, then yes, the use of a screen protector is a smart idea. I have always loved the screen protectors from Screenguardz. Compared to the ones at Best Buy (forget which brand), they are extremely smooth and the anti-glare is great. Here's the one for the iPhone 4...

Also, if you already have scratches in your touch screen, you might check out the glass compound from these guys. It looks like industrial grade stuff or something of the sort.

Normal wear and tear. Alot of people don't care about those kind of scratches. I just put a back protector on mine and be done with it.

Get some clear acrylic varnish ( Future floor polish is good) and give it a light coat. Problem solved, sorry hidden.
