I dropped my iPhone 5 and it left a dig on the shiny edge of the phone. I was wondering what they best way to try to remove the ding would be.

Should I sand paper it with fine grain? But I'm afraid it'll scratch it up more.

I could sand it with fine sandpaper, and then use a black sharpie to cover it up. (I have a black iPhone 5.)

You will make it worse, especially if its the black model. Just live with it.
