I have screen protector on my HTC hd7 and I have small crack on the corner (vertical) right lower. Can be repair?
The screen of the hd7's is made using corning's gorilla glass. Technically but also simply put, it's made of a single sheet of glass, spreading along all the front side of the phone. Glass is being used since it's more resistant to scratches and is a good electrical insulator, a needed property in the making of capacitive type touchscreens.
If you have a crack, most probably the surface area was broken due to some mechanical shock. Like any piece of glass, once broken it can't be fixed, it doesn't work like fixing a scratch on a plastic cover by polishing it. In fact i recommend you to leave it like this and try to cover it with the screen protector. The surface on the glass layer contains a special compound of transparent conductive polymers used to register screen taps. Actually this is what you touch when using the screen. It's not recommended that you try to polish the screen because you can accidentally remove this layer.
So, again simply put and sorry to make it this way, the wisest thing would be to either try to live with it or change the digitizer layer (glass front cover) but the last option can prove to be a bit expensive. Again, sorry for not being able to provide a more nicer solution.
