    The pics below are after only one application. I'll go back for a second application and make it perfect.

    Yep, it's a high traffic table and it's been about a week.

    Not sure what that has to do with the phone though......

    phone looks good!
    just dont too much rubbed on the screen
    cus all those metal polishers tend to have some GRIT to it and you might scratch your screen

    Apple did a pretty good job on this number.

    Whats funny is that it can repel a knife, but not finger prints!?

    Did you have any problems with the screen?
    Scratching or smearing?

    No I actually used a dremel with a polishing head to finish it off and the dremel was spinning on level 3 (of 10) going against the glass while I was going around the rim. No issues in any way. It is 100% safe.

    Here's a comparison to show the difference this lens polishing has made.

    photo 1 was taken in a store while I was playing with the camera when I first got the phone. This haze was dominant in any lighting situation, as was the green tint to all the pics.





    photo 2 was taken a moment ago.



    No more haze or green tint.

    Bingo! That's the stuff. Polish it off with a q-tip and plastx and it'll look awesome. This is in response to the other thread: http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8265

    Figured I'd stick them both together here.
