    Sorry, but it cannot be removed. Also, I guess I'm the opposite of you since the scratch wouldn't bother me but the other problems would bug me that you mentioned (but as people know here I am very picky with screens). Maybe it's best to exchange it because of the other issues while also getting one without a scratch, but only you can make that call.

    Well I thought now about returning it bc basically I'm very used to tilting the phone on a almost sitting position when im using while sitting at home and the chances of seeing the white line from the light source its gonna drive me nuts everytime. Also that since the screen is placed more to the left than to the right, the tilting can be noticed a lot in the horizontal lines, bc actually I have had iphone 6s (sd size) which had a bit of tilted screen but it wasnt particularly placed almost on one of the sides, and now hiding it w the templated glass protector is very difficult and it's gonna be very noticeable anyways.
    Also I wonder how can that white mini dot be on the very round corner of the white display like wtf lmao
    Anyways I know im exposing myself to getting a worse screen bc the uniformity of this one was very good after all of my iphones had blue blotches everywhere and even scanlines in 2016.. Ill guess i'll be fine without the scratch and the white dot design flaw..

    Unfortunately Scratches are permanent with the aluminum. The one you noted in your picture is minimal and I would try to ignore it the best you can.

    You might take it to a fine jeweler and see if he can buff-out the scratch (with his polish/rouge).

    I have no experience with such, but think fine jewelers are experienced with tiny work and know how to preclude polish from migrating in to the device. Of course, my 2¢ is probably over-valued, so please use caution.

    Should you go the jeweler route, please post back your results.

    There's no way to restore the finish to that area if the scratch was buffed out short of re anodizing the whole phone.
