    Default How to cover the front LG logo on the G3

    Hi everyone! I just got a white LG G3 from T-mobile yesterday, I switched over from a buggy G Note II. I'm liking the phone and the over all slim design so far however I am not to fond of the shiny LG LOGO on the bottom of the front screen that kinda takes away its minimalistic design. I would really really like to find a way to cover the logo using some sort of sticker or skin. I would like it the screen too look all black when turned off (similar to the oneplus one) or white metallic sticker matching the color that covers just the front bottom part. Does anyone know of any places online where I can buy a sticker or skin for the G3 that can cover the ugly lg logo?

    Doesn't seem worth the hassle. I don't honestly see what the big deal is anyway. Never been an issue with my G2.

    Worst case, find a case that covers it.

    mcwuppy, if you cover the logo you're going to lie awake at night thinking "I covered the logo but that's no good, the logo is still there under the covering, how can I really get rid of it?" and you're going to start thinking of burning it out with a laser or getting the LG factory to tool up to make you a special logo-free panel. That logo is going to ruin your life. As logos go, it actually is quite minimalist, don't you think?

    They should make custom skins that will cover it up I know they make them for other devices. Did you try coveroos?

    Tell me about it, Its just that coming from an HTC One and Galaxy Note II, I really hate the LG logo, it looks like the GE General Electric logo which I associate with stoves and refrigerators not that LG and Samsung make kitchen appliances as well lol:

    Seems pointless to me. It doesn't get in the way of functionality

    I also think the LG logo is annoying, but only to a very small extent. And I don't mind the Verizon logo because it's on a majority of their phones. This is all based upon images online.

    When I was in the store, looking at the screen in person, I did not notice either logo. At all. I forgot to look for it.

    Idk, the logo doesn't bother me. I think it actually looks pretty nice there. That being said, your best bet is probably getting a skin for the phone through someone like slickwraps (as has been mentioned above).

    I've never let logos bother me. Even the branding on the Verizon phone wouldn't bother me. Companies are going to brand their stuff... Cars do it.. Keyboards.. Mouses... Stoves.. Fridges... Etc. They want to have people know the brand when they look at it.

    I wish LG would have chosen either the front or the back to put their logo, not both. However, it could be worse, at least Sprint refrained from blasting their name all over it.

    In the world of cameras, users complained when makers switched from old script-style logos, as used on Exaktas and Leicas etc., to more 'up to date' styles. I think an old logo on a maker's latest products looks good, and links it to the past. I very much like the GE logo above.

    The LG logo doesn't bother me. I think it looks nice. What I can't stand is the carrier logo (T-Mobile) on the back. I still don't understand why iPhone is the only phone that don't have the carriers logo on it????? What makes those phones so special? I have to admit that's one thing I liked about iPhones when I owned them.

    Yes, manufacturers do brand their stuff, I.E. Samsung, LG, Sony, Epson, GE, and so forth. BUT, but now you have carrier branded logos as well such as VZW, AT&T, and T-Mo. So BOTH logos are on each phone. And none are readily removable.

    On cars, you see the make and model logo and occasionally you see the sellers sticker on the back. That sticker can be removed. Or it's a license plate frame but whatever. You don't see a logo of the gas station that supplies the fuel.

    On stoves and fridges, you see the manufacturer and the model maybe. You don't see a logo of the supplying electric company.

    Point is, manufacturer branding is a given. Carriers are a service. Putting manufacturer and service branding is asinine and tacky as hell.

    You do get why they do it, so if your out with your G3 or whatever and someone glances, goes home and then thinks I want a G3 and then Verizon will spring to mind.

    I can readily understand why some users are so against Verizon and LG branding. If their phone were bare they could claim they made it themselves.
