    I will definitely go check one out in store and see how it feels in hand. I really like what LG is doing and really pushing the bar higher.

    That's the least of my 'worries' about the phone. I stop noticing logos after awhile.

    People get so bent out of shape over the smallest things. If the logo is the only thing to complain about lg is doing something right

    I really hope Big Red doesn't screw us over by only offering the 16gb internal /2gb RAM model. MicroSD, removable battery, thin bezels... I'm going to tentatively say that LG has really nailed it with the G3.

    At least (so far) it looks like Verizon won't screw up the back buttons by going flatter and smaller than all other versions. I think Verizon will carry both versions at launch - the 16GB/2GB model @ $199, and the 32 GB/3GB model @ $249 (although I could see it going to Note Territory @ $299 at launch). I bought the 32 GB GS3 at launch and it is still a very capable phone 2 years later with 2 GB RAM, dual core Snapdragon, and 720P display. I believe buying the higher storage model will aid its longevity and may make it slightly faster by keeping more apps in RAM.

    Verizon always brands. Learned that from this M8.... But they did the front as well here... Interesting lol.

    I always love white phones.... but on the white LG G3, why is the top bezel black? Seems kind of mismatched.

    And hopefully they'll have both white and black. When I asked for the white G2 around launch time no one at the Verizon store had a clue what I was talking about. They barely knew what the G2 was when I asked about it period. And yes, please don't let them screw up the buttons again. I hated the ones on the G2. Never used them.

    They did it with the G2 as well. So I popped into a local Verizon store today; the rep there said Verizon wants to get the phone out ASAP, to beat the rush for the new iPhone. He said all Verizon has told them is "Summer", but knowing Verizon, he said most likely that within 30 days or so, the phone will launch. I told him that i hope Verizon carries the 32GB model, he seemed to say that that's the model they will have. It doesn't make sense for them to have a 16GB G3 and a 32GB G2. The Galaxy S5 is $99 now...knowing Verizon, the phone will launch at $199, and then end up at $99 a month later...I'm gonna wait until the price drops.

    Because its stupid for Verizon to add their logo on both the front and back of the device.

    At the very least, they could have replaced the LG logo with theirs. Instead, they shoehorn it into the top corner. It distracts from an otherwise nicely designed phone.

    Distracts? Honestly when using any device do you REALLY notice the branding when you're using it? My goodness people whine over the simplest of things.

    Not always... My Verizon moto g has no carrier branding front or back.

    My s3 and Note 3 only had branding on the back cover... I bought the Wireless charging back which didn't have carrier branding. You can also buy the regular back without carrier branding or various third party options

    You should complain to lg. If lg offered to remove their logo and put the Verizon one instead then I am sure Verizon would agree.

    Also since other manufacturers were able to release devices without Verizon branding on the front, I am sure Verizon would be OK without the logo on the front all together, perhaps if lg would offer Verizon a lower cost or something.

    Doubtful. It is probably under the glass.

    It wasn't removable on the G2 so I would expect that it would be the same for the G3. As for those that are telling people to stop whining about the logos, some (including myself) can be very particular about the aesthetics of their phone. My main issue is that the logos (especially on the front) are absolutely unnecessary. While I do understand that logos are placed to advertise who made the product and such, it's not like I'm suddenly going to forget that my phone is on the Verizon network with the huge Verizon and 4G LTE logo on the back, the Verizon logo on startup, the Verizon branding on the notification shade, the utterly useless and non-removable Verizon applications, etc. And it also sure as hell isn't going to make anyone think "I'm switching to Verizon!" after seeing that obtrusive logo on the front since 95% of the time, I'm the only one looking at my phone... and I haven't forgotten which network I'm using (see above). Basically, it boils down to branding fatigue... I know what device I'm using, I know what network I'm on, I don't need a logo to shove it in my face everytime I use my device.

    Making a big deal out of nothing? Yeah, pretty much... but still irritating like a splinter in your finger. It's not going to kill you but it'll definitely be on your mind.

    I certainly can't possibly forget that I'm on the Verizon network....

    Complaining about a logo is text book example of a "first world problem".

    Look again at the posts prior to yours. No one said to "stop whining" as you incorrectly stated in your rant. Specifically, it was my post you misspoke about so i'll respond and offer a couple of suggestions that may ease your mind and help with the irritation.

    1. Operate your device in dim lit areas or at night, only. You won't be able to see any logos in those environments.
    2. Use a full body case for your device. This should cover all carrier logos plus the device manufacturers. Of course now, you will see the case manufacturers name and logo all of the time. I think that's a fair trade off. Case manufacturers could always use a boost selling their products...
    3. Switch to a no name carrier with no logo. I am 99% sure this will stop the irritation!

    Haha, clever. Yes I realize how big a deal I may seem like I'm making out of seemingly nothing but do keep in mind that a) everyone has their preferences, b) people will find a way to complain about everything, and c) perhaps our devices are just so good at what they do a small fault can seem like a bigger issue than it really is. Epitome of first world problems? Yeah, not going to argue there. But I'm not living in a third world country and thus, do not share the same problems and concerns as they do. To belittle my "problems" vis--vis those from the third world is, in my opinion, patronizing to both parties... but I digress.

    Let's just leave it at agreeing to disagree on this topic as we all eagerly await the G3. I merely wanted to present my personal opinions on the matter, some of which are undoubtedly shared by others with a similar complaint with the excessive use of logos.

    You got way too much time on your hands. Maybe a hobby or job would alleviate your unnatural propensity regarding logos. Or "maybe" the logos are conspiring against you. Sounds like a tinfoil hat might be in your future.

    You are 100% right. You should voice your personal opinion even if it's different than the majority. More importantly we (Me) should respect those views (and poke fun respectfully).You're a good sport and I think we all are undoubtedly anxious to get our hands on the G3. Logos and all! 😀
