Renders of the LG G3 for all four major US carriers leak
posted by Maxwell R. / Jul 04, 2014, 3:32 PM
Anyone that has seen the LG G2 for Verizon knows exactly what this means. Big Red's LG flagship had the same specs, but the physical features were different when it came to the volume and power/lock buttons on the back, along with a bezel ring for the camera lens, and who can forget Verizon's "LOOK AT ME" branding?
The same will follow suit with the LG G3, though to a lesser extent this time. As we already knew, Verizon's branding is an important feature to the carrier, and previous leaks showed us what America's largest carrier had in store for us with the G3. Thankfully however, the button arrangement is not being changed, so accessories and cases can be made across the whole line-up. The power/lock button has a chrome treatment to it however, and a shiny camera bezel is back as well.
AT&T's variant of the G3 will stay true to last year's model, one logo on the back and LG's "G3" branding along the bottom. T-Mobile's branding is equally subtle. Sprint's model is the cleanest of the bunch with no apparent carrier branding at all.
Since so many people put their expensive smartphones in cases, overt branding for the carrier and the manufacturer is arguably moot. In that circumstance, Verizon prevails with a small logo in the top front bezel. It is difficult to see from the renders leaked by @evleaks, but there appears to be a small dimensional difference on the back plate of the Verizon G3 compared to the other carriers. It may reflect native wireless charging, of which Verizon and LG back the Qi standard while AT&T is backing the PMA standard. We will see how that all shakes out following release.
How about it, is the branding over the top? Not enough? Or will your G3 be in a case so you are not too worried?

One day I ask a customer that she should take a look at the G3 because of their new OIS camera. If you like taking pictures with a huge battery life get the G3. And she say she will take a look. And also explain always wait don't rush out and buy a phone. Always look at others cause new model's will come out

Carrier logos. i tell you, it's a crime! the verizon g3 design is the best but the s%it logo ruins the whole design and make it the worst, and that s%it carriers screen that appears every time you turn on your phone. anybody got some alcohol and towel? oh, and root to get read of carrier screen. forget it. i buy unlocked. i just can't stand it.

Big Red is now Big Logo. I'm not sure what they think they'll get from slapping all that branding on the thing, but they do seem to insist on their uniqueness. Their size and mentality are starting to concern me though.

But having that logo makes and looks and shows prestige, cause being on Verizon and paying for their services is what you get is pure quality. Just like being on Vodafone.
