    Can anyone confirm if the verizon version has the old branding or the new branding?

    I plan on switching out the back panel as soon as OEM panels are readily available.

    You know it's glued and sealed, and removing / replacing the back will most likely compromise the waterproofing if not done perfectly?

    Yup. Krazy glue works right? I kid.

    I have a buddy that's a repair tech for Samsung and I was just planning on him taking it to work and swapping it for me.

    That sounds like a safe bet, then.

    Ya. I had him do the same thing on my S6E and Note 5. The S6E is now back with him getting the panel replaced with the old Verizon one he initially took off so I can sell it and not have folks asking why it was replaced.

    Too bad. I like the old one better. No biggie though.

    I don't understand the hatred of the Verizon tramp stamp. It's really not that big of a deal, tbh.

    Some people just hate branding on their phones... Or I guess I should say "extra" branding.

    It doesn't bother me since I think of it like this .. Where is there no branding in life? Shirts, shoes, refrigerators, cars, etc. all have branding. Of course companies will take advantage of free advertising so I am not surprised the carriers jump on it as well. Especially since Samsung will work with them to do so.

    I don't mind the branding, it's the Verizon one that's ugly in my eyes. The AT&T logo is an example of a logo I could live with.

    Tramp it up. ...well, I used to say that before I decided I'm not casing this phone. I've since moved on from the safety blanket of cases.

    If you got the silver, it's a chrome like finish and you can use it as a mirror!

    Sure, they may hate the branding, but it's something that's to be expected. It'll never go away.

    Seems like an unnecessary expenditure. To each his/her own, I guess.

    I have a Note 2 sitting in front of me right now. It's just not a V, it also has Verizon written on it.
