    Welp

    Lasted a little over 3 weeks before I dropped it. It was in my pocket, came out and went through the holes in the bench I was sitting on. Damn skinny phone.

    Oh well, it was bound to happen. What I don't like is the gritty texture feeling I get when I touch it. Do I get a real high grit sandpaper or something?

    Anyone have any experiencing in doing so? I don't want to restore it to it's original look, I know that's not realistically possible. Also I never use cases on my phone, so I don't wanna put one on to hide it.

    If you don't want to restore it to the original anodized finish, and refuse to put a case on it, then just drop it a few more times until the scratches even out.

    If the ding is abrasive, I'd even it out; otherwise I don't see the point. I have a lot of dings and scratches on mine.

    You will never hide/replicate the finish with any kind of hand done buffing/sanding. Sorry.

    And when did welp become a word, and who do I contact about revoking that status?
