Verizon Galaxy Note II to have the carrier's logo on its home button

25 October, 2012 | Comments (26) | Post your comment

It's not unusual for US carriers to put their branding on the backs of the smartphones they offer. We've even seen them above the displays on the backs, on wallpapers and what not. However, Verizon has just reached a new level of tackiness and put its logo on the home button of the latest Android flagship it will offer - the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

The device is currently available for pre-order for $300 with a 2-year plan and can be ordered in black or white flavors. However, the extra color choice Verizon is offering would likely be enough to make up for the extra branding both on the front and the back.

According to our humble opinion, the carrier logos on various smartphones aren't anything out of the ordinary. They sure don't help looks, but they aren't too bad and, given that the US carriers invest quite in subsidizing the smartphones they offer it's normal to try and improve the return by using them as ad space. In this case however the result is quite ugly and we really hope the trend doesn't pick up.
