Fixing scrathces on glossy finish

Well I dropped my two week old LG CU515 cell phone on a hardwood floor. No damage was done to the phone except very shallow scratches on the high gloss exterior. These are shallow enough that I cannot even feel it, or can you see it unless you're pretty close up. I still don't like them though.
Does anybody have a preferred way of filling in these kinds of scratches?

I know some types of car wax polish may work, but not sure what is best.

I used rubbing compound on my phone when I scratched it. Then I polished it.
