    Well they just posted this article: Galaxy S6 and S6 edge go up for pre-order in the U.S. March 27, on sale April 10 | Android Central
    And i noticed that for the first time we see the words "Galaxy S6" and "Galaxy S6 edge" printed on the back.

    Which made me think about what carriers will be doing for branding. Are they just going to have to suck it up and not put anything on the phone? I feel like Samsung won't allow them to put their logo on the phone beneath the glass since that would require changes during manufacturing.

    Not that i care since any case i get will cover it up, but i feel like on some level, carriers are cursing.

    They never put branding on iPhones with glass back and i'm not sure if that's because of Apple, or if it just wasn't possible because of the glass back.

    They will all have their branding on them in the US.
    Looking at Verizon's S6 page you can see their branding on the back of the phones already.

    The branding on the back looks correct, however an inside source told me the branding on the front will look like this: Samsung Galaxy S6 Carrier Branding with Glass Back?-0xmi09e.jpg

    T-Mobile one doesn't have any branding from T-Mobile. Andrew has one and has pictures on his articles that show no branding.

    My Samsung Note 4 also came brandless. Could only tell it was T-mobile because of restarting the phone. Very cool.

    I went into the AT&T store this afternoon and figured I'd ask if they had the devices in. They did!! Not on display yet, but the gal had them in the back and let me play with both of them. I can confirm the picture here is in fact what the AT&T version looks like. I'm so glad I'm not a Verizon customer; what they do with the branding on their devices is just shameful :/ AT&T just removed "Samsung" on the back and replaced it with the AT&T logo; fine by me.

    Why Verizon insists on adding 4G LTE on the back of everything is beyond me.

    Just be thankful the branding is on the back, and not on the front.

    Wasn't there a device with the Verizon logo on the home button?

    Regardless .. A company branding their stuff to me is .. their thing. My fridge, car, washer, modem, router, thermostat, all that .. have branding .. So why have an issue with your phone having it?

    You weren't saying that .. you were trying to defend as to why it doesn't have it as if you had an issue with branding .. So my question was how do you have an issue with them branding their own product? Your response was they don't have it on the international version. Sorry I disagree.. you can disagree with me.. That is totally okay since we are sharing opinions. Just saying to complain about a phone having it but your clothes, appliances, everything in life has it .. is pretty odd to me.

    You definitely took my post the wrong way. There is nothing wrong with a company branding their product... All I was saying was that I personally think it would look better without it...it's their product they can do what they want...not sure why u got upset about that... Either way I'm still gonna get the phone... I don't have a problem with it

    Not upset at all .. I think you took my post the wrong way... .

    Simply saying .. if people want to say it sucks .. I simply want to ask valid reasons as to why a company can't brand their own product when .. all others do and no one complains.

    That is it .
