Don't like that Verizon logo on your Motorola DROID Turbo 2? It can be removed.

Don't like that Verizon logo on your Motorola DROID Turbo 2? It can be removed.
Don't like that Verizon red check mark located in between the two speakers on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2? Suppose we told you that it can be removed. As it turns out, the ShatterShield technology, which makes the screen shatterproof, includes an outer layer that has to be replaced by the consumer. Made of acrylic polymer, the Verizon logo is actually printed on this outer layer.

You could simply remove the acrylic polymer layer and the red check mark will disappear. However, you also lose a key component of the ShatterShield system. Not only would you be more likely to scratch or crack your screen without it, you could void your warranty by removing the exterior protective lens without sticking on a replacement.

But for those who just despise that red check mark, there is hope. Outside of the U.S., the DROID Turbo 2 will be known as the Motorola Moto X Force. Since it won't be a carrier exclusive like the DROID Turbo 2 is, the replaceable outer layer of the display for that model should be sold to consumers without any markings. And since the Moto X Force is the same exact phone as the DROID Turbo 2, the former's outer layer will be an exact fit for the DROID Turbo 2.

So once the Moto X Force is launched, buy the replacement exterior protective for the outer screen for that phone, and use them for the outer layer on your DROID Turbo 2. Once you do that, you won't have to look at any part of the Verizon logo on the front of your phone.

Maybe someone can confirm this, but isn't the speaker the top grille, and the two on the bottom are microphones?

They're both speakers, but the top one also acts as the earpiece during phone calls and the bottom one is silent. During audio & video, both are playing.

So other than housing the logo, do we know why there's a gap between the bottom grilles? Structural integrity perhaps? I'm really, really hoping it's not just for the logo.

It doesn't look as good but technically it's still just the one speaker with two grilles.

As long as the phone just works.

Or you can just live with it. If you can't, maybe you need professional help. Even better, just stay away from Verizon in the first place.

Being able to remove that eyesore logo actually makes this phone slightly more appealing to me. I'll go call my therapist and let you know what she thinks.

Why not just wait for the glass screen protector that would eventually replace the plastic protector? Should be zero issues in getting a $2 eBay replacement. You lose the shatter proof claim but only for the protector which is easy and cheap to replace.

What's the point of including the logo?

then what's the point of writing your name and address in a letter before sending it at a post office? It's point: identification! And VERIZON is a trademark.

Why do they want to remove the "trademark"? And who sends letters these days?

We own these phones. We don't work for Verizon and they don't own us (well, not really.) Why should we be advertised at every time we look at our phones? We have Google for that

If you can't unlock the bootloader, verizon owns the phone, period.

It is possible. But you should buy a unlocked one.
