Verizon branded LG G3 press render surfaces, logos abound

We are just days away from LG presenting its latest flagship, the G3. At this point, everything is pretty much official, the rest is all a show with some details added to clean up the edges.

Like the HTC One (M8) before it, the LG G3 has seen an exponential expansion of pre-announcement leaks, and that pretty much leaves everything else up to formality. Even LG has been revving up the excitement with some teaser videos to keep us occupied.

Of course, until we hold the LG G3 in our hands and get to use it, we will not be satisfied, and we are pretty certain that many of you feel the same way. With that out of the way, Verizon customers should not be surprised that their LG G3 smartphones will have a bit of branding added to them.

When you are the biggest kid on the block, chances are you are not shy, and Big Red is not shy. Just like a lot of folks groaned at how Verizon managed to brand itself all over the Samsung Galaxy Note II, and on the LG G2, despite the small bezels, subscribers that pick up a G3 will find the same amount of branding painted on front and back of their device.

One good thing we can take from this latest render from @evleaks is that unlike the Verizon branded G2, the LG G3 will retain the same physical form factor, no difference in buttons or appearance. That should make accessory makers happy.

Since many of us put our devices in a case anyway, this is probably not a big deal. Just remember, Verizon does not want you to forget about them, ever.

Why does Verizon insist on putting their hideous logos all over their phones... Ruins the sexiness...

Apparently Verizon thinks for some reason people will see these logos on the phone and switch carriers or something I'm completely dumbfounded as to the point of these logos everywhere.

Because they are a FAT HEADED retarded company that; doesn't have a good selection of phones (if they do it has at least 2-3 VZ logos), is the most expensive for no reason (AT&T is about equal in service...), and will be the LAST to launch VOLTE (even though peeps are paying more for service)! I am very glad I left VZ for AT&T! Twice as many high end phones AND NO UGLY LOGO! (just the death star) Can't wait to molest both the Padfone X and LG G3! (and choose 1) :)

I don't understand with Verizon getting that huge logo infront of every single phone. It's not like people from up far can see the logo for advertising purposes! If this is to remind the user that they are using Verizon service on every single time they look at their phone. Then that is stupid...

Same here. Honestly, I have been getting better coverage and service with T-Mobile, although I definitely did not expect to. Verizon is an immoral and malicious company, and I'm glad that my money is no longer fueling their actions. It's also nice to be able to use a phone which that looks like it's manufactured by its actual manufacturer and not Verizon -_-

The coverage issue might change with Verizon's XLTE rollout...or their rebranded LTE services with a bigger pipeline

The ultimate Verizon achievement will be having the Verizon logo on the LG G3's on screen buttons.

Having a Verizon emblem on a device shows class and prestige Verizon has superb coverage and 4G coverage

It shows "class and prestige" because Verizon is expensive. Its like the main reason many people buy Apple products.

No, Verizon is not a luxury brand. I have never looked at anyone with a Verizon logo on their phone and thought, "wow, that guy must be loaded! I wonder what kind of car he drives..."

What's distance between LG logo in bottom of display? One bezel? Why?

Yeah, the brandings on the front are not cool at all. If I want to know that I have Verizon all I have to do is look at my damn phone bill.

No need to wait for Tuesday. It has been leaked like stupid since a long time ago.

People complaining about the logos crack me up. Sprint is like the one carrier that doesn't have logos and it's because they want people to ask about what carrier they use. With Verizon, especially the G line one look and you already know. The best service the game has to offer. Verizon didn't need to pay for termination fees like desperate T-Mobile. AT&T just sits comfortably in second riding Verizon's coat tails

Its a great sight to see Verizon add their logos in the worst places they can find! This is exactly why I don't go with Verizon!
