Mmm, that Verizon branding up front looks sweet. Posted via HTC 10
There is that ugly Verizon logo at the front.. They just can't control. Posted via the Android Central App
I'm sure Verizon has stacked their bloat on top of Asus bloat,that is truly unfortunate with only 2Gb of RAM.I don't really get too worked up over carrier branding.Sure,I'd leave it off if it weren't just there,but I don't see it as the gigantic deal a lot of people try to make out to be.Your vehicles probably have dealership branding on them,better break out the blow dryers.
