    I always carry it alone in my pocket and I’m extra careful when handling it.
    How could this happen? Maybe it was the cloth I use to wipe off fingerprints?
    It’s only visible when the screen is off but it’s still a damn scratch!
    Is there any way to get rid of the scratch?

    There is no way to remove the scratch

    At best you can buy a screen protector and cover it.

    It’s permanent. There might of been debris inside your pocket that you can’t physically see or feel, that scratched the display/Oleophobic coating. You can use a screen protector that will conceal the scratch.

    I don’t like my phones getting damaged. But the one thing i can accept is the screen will be scratched, it’s pretty much unavoidable.
    I hate screen protectors they ruin the response of the screen so i will never personally use one.

    Yes I also hate screen protectors and cases, after a while I always get rid of them. Thankfully it’s only visible under certain angles and lighting when the screen is off.
