Here is the Front and Back of Verizon’s Galaxy Note 3

verizon note 3 front

The Galaxy Note 3 is obviously the newest version of Samsung’s popular oversized smartphone line with all sorts of new additions, but if there was one area where we were hoping to see an “Oh, hell naw!” from Samsung with a foot forcefully stomped to the ground, it would be over Verizon’s branding of the phone’s front home button. We made a colossal stink over the Galaxy Note 2’s front-branded home button last year, and were prepared to go thermonuclear-Jobs-style-war again if the Note 3 had it. Thankfully, that won’t be happening this time around. 

Verizon has already mentioned that this year’s model wouldn’t carry their logo on the front physical home button, but these new official images of the device posted to Best Buy give us an extra batch of relief.

In the listing for the Galaxy Note 3 on Verizon, we get views of both the front and back. As you can see from the top image, the physical home button is as clean as can be. The backside on the other hand, does indeed feature Big Red logos of “Verizon” and “4G LTE,” but those are pretty standard these days, just ask the HTC One.

Mmmm, faux leather. So tasteful. (/s)

Cheers Ray!

  • Antonio da Cruz

    Got my Note 3 yesterday. It has no peers. In heaven for another 24 months.

  • ddh819

    looks fine, if i had it, i’d only be looking at the front

  • rutgersjaffo

    If lack of a logo on a button is going to sway you to buy a phone, please do the rest of us a favor and do not breed. Just sayin…

  • yankeesusa

    I have to say, I really like the back of the phone. The faux leather I like. The front looks a lot like my note 2 which I really like. Overall I hope I can get enough for my note 2 to pay for this one.

  • Faux leather, Samsung? Please tell me you’re joking. Hopefully there are aftermarket back covers because a lot of people will definitely be needing one.

  • Neil Fujiwara

    Why is everyone making such a big deal about the back cover? Most people are going to put cases on their phone…

    • yankeesusa

      Exactly, and even if you didn’t the complaint before was ” the back is too slippery”. Now that its easier to grip they are complaining again. Oh well. I actually like the back. But like you said, I’m most likely going to put a case on it. Especially since I’m paying full price for my phone i need to protect my investment.

  • jtl999

    I like the leather cover. Hopefully it’s like my dads old Blackberry Bold 9000 cover. That was nice.

  • Ruel Smith

    Looks like my next phone, only in white… 🙂

    • JolleyMan

      Get a matching belt and be sure to holster that baby.

  • Radgatt

    At this point I think the 4G LTE logo isn’t necessary. I would be perfectly fine with just the Verizon logo on the back. Still better than the logo on the home button.

  • AcemanX AcemanX

    what about tmobile! lol

  • jboogie1289

    So there is no branding on the Home Button!! Hooray for the ones that let this be the thorn in their side!! I’m glad you don’t have that to bother you now. Now, lets enjoy the device.

  • chris420o

    ah yes…pleather on a elctronic device…worlds of sense

  • niania



  • JMillion

    Nice to see they didnt brand the home button again. I couldnt believe they did that before. As far as the back, if the logos bother you can at least swap it.

  • sfasljkas

    What is sad I think is that even when samsung releases the beast phone with little compromise even android sites will find something to nitpick. But I hope when the reviews come out they will be fair.

  • Antonio da Cruz

    I just do not get the obsession some have with quality of back covers on smartphones. With Sammy you an change it. different colours , textures, etc etc. Stop looking at the back, all the action is on the front, the most amazing screen you ever did see !! These people are the type obsess about and analyze their anus’es in a mirror.

    • chris420o

      phones fugly…if your friends girlfriend is ugly do you try to justify it by saying oh but if she wears her hair up shes not that ugly….no you just accept it for what it is…an ugly girl…like this ugly phone

      • Chippah

        Go change the back on the G2 or htc or moto x, oh wait…. YOU CANT Fawka…

        • chris420o

          wouldnt want to….

  • Look at all the love for the Note3 back?!

    DL should have a poll… maybe its not understood how many people really like the Note3 and the non-shiny slippery back. I’m one of them. I think it’s nice to have something different, even if it is plastic faux leather… at least it’s not shiny and slippery.

  • sfasljkas

    What’s with the dig at the back of this phone? First you criticize the glossy back and samsung changes it and made it even possible to change it with any back you want but still it’s not enough. I hope dl won’t be like android authority which wishes samsung will be less successful so that other android oems “can catch up”. Other android fans may not admit it but samsung played a big part why android is where it is today (and android played a big role in Samsung’ s success as well)

    • Chippah

      Agreed, what else do people want for christs sake? with the N3 you can change it to whatever you want, do that with a one, g2, etc

      • yankeesusa

        Exactly. Don’t like it, put a case on it or change it later on. I myself like a little change once in a while. Keeps the phone unique.

  • SacMcNasty

    I just love how everyone bitches about the design choices of the back of these phones. Plastic: Bitch. Faux leather: Moan. Anything else? Complainers of death. Someone needs to call Amber Lamps.

    • Chippah

      Call da AMBER LAMPS!

  • Is it still Faux metal chromed plastic around the edges guys?

  • Destroythanet

    Are there any aftermarket back covers to replace that god-awful fake leather yet?!

  • Rodeojones000

    What an absurdly ugly phone.

  • RaptorOO7

    The back is no worse and no better than any other carriers back side of the GN3. Fortunately mine is ALWAYS in a case.

  • James Hill

    I’d be putting a case on that baby anyways.

  • schlanz

    Kellen be trollin Sammy once again. OH THE HUMANITY FAUX LEATHER.

    Can’t wait for the Note 3!

  • shea241

    This device is meant for writing with a pen. The glossy back of the Note2 made this an impossible task, it would slide all over if you had it on a table. Keeping it steady with another hand is really uncomfortable and gets in the way of such a tiny writing area.

    I don’t care if it’s fake leather / vinyl or not… if it sticks, it wins.

  • sk3litor

    Ya know “Faux leather” real leather or poo poo if it feels nice it feels nice. And I can’t believe I’m saying this right now but I think I actually am starting to come around. I think I really like this on the black one. I have to be honest with myself. I was getting it anyway because I prefer function over form. But now it’s just that much better. I even like the stitching. I could see some case makers making a case that looks like this. And I tell you what I think it looks a lot better than wood. Sorry dudes. I love you guys but wood? Really? Oh well I guess that’s what males this world great. Everyone’s different.

  • Tim242

    OK, bring it on. I’m ready for my 6 month full price upgrade.

  • Chris

    If we rewound 5 years and said you could have an hd capable phone with broadband speed and a 13 mp camera….but you would need to deal with a glossy polycarbonate battery cover…..people would have choked out their own mothers to get one…..spoiled society. …just enjoy your beast phone and STFU

  • jbdan

    Just like with the ics/jb blue colors, the frame/design for Sammies are looking dated to me. Still looks nice and all, just old (I use an S4)….I know it will be a heck of a phablet-phone though

  • Tobias Fünke, M.D. Analrapist

    No Verizon logo on the home button to remind me what network I’m on? NO DEAL.

    • Tim242

      Get over it already.

    • Dont worry, just like last years stickers to cover it up, i’m sure Verizon can get some stickers made up so you can have it back this time around 😉

  • Mark Schleupner

    Yea! No Verizon logo on the button!!!

  • Lesser Version

    Where exactly on XDA is this device being touted as being rooted and unlocked already??

  • TSY87

    what does the faux say?

    I’m not a fan, but it does seem to look less tacky with the black color. Hopefully they have some decent back covers worth swapping for. I think a CF would look great.

  • Brenden Keene

    I got to play with the international version yesterday… so sexy. The pleather back was really nice and the screen and the s-pen… oh man.

  • sfasljkas

    Excited to buy this good thing theres none of that logo here

  • Colin Huber

    I really don’t think the back is that bad, but we’ll see.

    • Justin W

      I want to feel it, but based on how it looks, it’s definitely an upgrade over the glossy plastic feel of the previous Galaxy devices.

      Also, is there an app available (that doesn’t require root) to allow you to use on-screen keys for the Note? I am not a fan of physical buttons, but everything else about this phone has me wanting it.

      • flosserelli

        Some video reviews say it feels soft(ish) and is more “grippy”, unlike the hard plastic on other Samsung devices.

  • viewthis66

    i’m looking forward to this device. i personal like the back cover as well regardless of the bias tone from the DL team… in regards to that, i really enjoyed the days on here when DL reported on Android instead of single out and playing favesies. its getting old fellas.

    • BananaBob

      seems like they’ve just been hating on everything that’s not a Moto X. guess what, Moto X is plastic too! Atleast they tried changing it up for the people who complained about plastic. They try to keep the weight on their devices low

  • CHRIS42060

    I don’t get why people are so anti-Verizon’s logo. Ok the Galaxy Note 2 home button logo was ridiculous; however, what’s wrong with a little advertising? Its not like a majority of us do not have our phones in cases that completely cover the back. Now faux leather…… That’s an issue.

    • Mike Hilal

      It’s because they HAVE to make it different for the sake of being different. AT&T, TMO use the door that comes from samsung w/ their logo on it. Not eradicate the Samsung logo to put a 2″ square verizon logo on the back.

    • VZW4GLTE

      I really don’t find it to be an issue either. People complain wayy too much nowadays. Like be happy your able to carry around a less than 6″ device that’s like a damn high-end computer in your pocket. So what it has a company logo on the back. Its not like people are gonna point, stare, and laugh at it.
      And the whole battery cover? Don’t like plastic ok, well they gave you something else and you don’t like that either. Fix for $10.00. buy a metal, or carbon fiber battery cover on ebay in 2 weeks. Problem solved. I have a case on my phone at all times. So I never see the back cover or logo, like most people that are complaining about it.

    • Tim242

      You make no sense. If it’s in a case, why does the material constitutean issue, but the logo ddoesn’t? I don’t use cases, and I’m looking forward to the new back.

  • Eibyer

    What the faux…

  • Chippah

    We got a guy a on XDA claiming 2 things..

    #1 VZW may ship the Note 3’s on the 29th.

    #2 Same guy says that root + bootloader unlock is a go.

    Apparently this guy is a somewhat reliable source.

    It made me put in my pre order today, as its simply the best upgrade from my launch day GNEX.

    • Mike Hilal

      Im in the same boat

    • YankInDaSouth

      I seen this too… I hope like hell he is right on both accounts!!

    • Lesser Version

      I will believe it when I see it, so if there is picture proof with US versions please post the link so I can place my pre-order

    • Bionicman

      EDIT: nevermind found it

    • sk3litor

      How much how much?

    • David

      More info please on the guy?! Also have it preordered.

  • Bigwavedave25

    ACCEPTABLE. Nada on the front!

  • tharealoc

    C’mon guys, it’s not that bad….at least they don’t put it in the notification bar and have it always visible like At&t…

  • Mike

    Does anyone know if Verizon has 4G LTE coverage? I never can remember.

    • Dan

      You forgot your /s tag.

      How’s this:

      • MatthewSimmons

        Wow. I haven’t seen those speeds since I had my Thunderbolt. These days I normally see 4-9 mbps with 3-5 bars.

        • VZW4GLTE

          Verizon’s LTE is still fast buddy!!

          • T4rd

            That’s insane. My record is high 40s. I still consistently pull mid 20s in my area too.

          • Josh

            t looks like you’re on wifi, not 4G.

  • BRIM

    I don’t get the hate for the back cover. Anything is better over that glossy plastic. I’d prefer this back over the look of the G2

    • crazed_z06

      DL seems to be on a campaign to hate on Samsung and push the moto x even though the note 3 will be the most beastly android ever devised.

      • Adrynalyne

        Beastly or not, I don’t need faux animal skin on my phone to remind me.

        • Richard Yarrell

          Another clueless person

          • Adrynalyne

            Another troll.

          • Adrynalyne

            LOL, someone upvoted you. I guess trolls run in packs these days.

        • Tim242

          Contrary to what most are saying…it is not a faux leather. It is a soft touch plastic like on the DNA, but a little more grippy

          • Adrynalyne

            Um, faux leather is often made of plastic bro.

            Thanks for playing.

          • Thta’s Right

            Whoaaa! HUH? NO!!! Faux leather is often made with fabric that looks like leather!

          • Adrynalyne

            Faux leather = artificial leather = includes pleather which is made out of plastic.


          • HarvesterX

            Faux leather that is made from fabrics incorporate some type of cotton or other “fabric” material. There is a lot more to the process, but the point is its OFTEN covered over with a coat of polyurethane. Polyurethanes – Plastics.

            These plastic coatings are generally the reason behind having a greasy feelings back. To be fair though, I’m still using my old Galaxy Nexus until I buy a new phone, and it has one of those backs that everyone callas “nasty*. Maybe it’s my hands or even fingers, but the back isn’t getting and hasn’t gotten oily at all from my skin.

            I was my hands around 5 times a day, so maybe that’s the cause? No clue. The back on here actually feels really nice and smooth with just enough texture on it to grip your hands.

            I’m not here to talk talking about the Galaxy Nexus. Was only brought up because the back is similar (if not the same) material as the other Galaxy phones. One of my friends has a Note 2, and wow the back on that thing is fingerprint heaven. Maybe at work today I’ll clean it up for him. Lol

          • Tim242

            Um Not all plastic is the same. There is a difference in faux leather plastic, and soft touch plastic. I work in.a cell phone store and have played with it. Thanks for playing though. Funny you call Richard a troll, when you just spewed your ignorance to a whole list of my comments.

          • Adrynalyne

            No offense, but I will believe it when I see it, not when some random person claims something.

          • Tim242

            You believe these bloggers that have an obvious bias. Have you not seen the back removed in the videos? It is just as flexible and thin as the glossy ones. Pleather is much thicker than that. But by all means, go see for yourself.

          • Adrynalyne

            I believe these biased bloggers all saying the same thing over someone on Disqus, yes. Not sure what they are biased towards or against, though, considering apple and android loving blogs are united in this.

          • Tim242

            It’s your prerogative to believe whom you choose. But be sure to pay attention to what they say, and check back in in a few months. Every one of them on this site trashed the S4, and said the One wasthe best phone ever. Then they all ended up with an S4 as their primary device until their Moto X pushing started. As soon as the Nexus 5 comes out, it will be the best and everything else will be sh!t.

        • joder

          Yay my fav DL troll is back!!!

        • Notetaker

          Remind u of what ?? Lmao

      • Richard Yarrell

        Who gives TWO SHITS what these guys say on Droid-Life they aren’t nobody important in the real world. They nothing more than a bunch ofpom pom waving stock android lovers and Verizon Wireless butt kissers. Now they want wave pom poms for Motorola who has been the biggest JOKE of the android platform for over four years now. Samsung owns android period market share standpoint and just based on product. If it wasn’t for Samsung the entire android platform would be a total flop. Samsung brought credibility to the android platform far more than any android manufacturer. Plain and simple Samsung is android period.

        • Adrynalyne

          The day Samsung becomes Android is the day I switch to an iPhone. What is wrong with people like you who don’t understand that one manufacturer ruling a market leads to stagnation and lack of innovation?

          Google is Android. Samsung is definitely not. They defile it with every device, just like the rest of them.

          • Tim242

            Google makes Android, but is not Android. People buy Galaxies, not Googles.

          • Adrynalyne

            You know what I mean. Don’t give Richard more power to troll more.

          • squiddy20

            And before people bought Galaxies, they were buying Droids (which some still call any Android powered device). Doesn’t make it right/correct.

          • Tim242

            The point is, without Droid and Galaxy, there would be no Android. Embrace it.

          • squiddy20

            There would be Android, it just wouldn’t be as popular since it wouldn’t have all the over the top eye candy and settings-you-could-get-lost-in like there is on Touchwiz. As you so succinctly put it, “Google makes Android”. Without Droid or Galaxy, you would still have Android (the core, unblemished/untouched version).

          • Tim242

            You would still have Android, but it would be about like Windows Phone.

          • crazed_z06

            You might want to put an iphone 5S on order bro.

            If anything Samsung is pushing Android forward with all kinds of new features like the S-Pen. Android hipsters may not want to admit it, but Galaxy and Android are becoming synonymous.

        • Tim242

          I have grown to really appreciate your posts since you got off the EVO kick. Everything you speak these days is truth. Keep spreading it!

        • Aaron

          Obviously you give two shits about what they say since you come to the site, read the posts, then comment on them. Please never come back…that will show them that you don’t care for real.

        • BananaBob

          I agree with you on alot of points, and Samsung definitely rules the roost. Samsung is like the Apple of Android and obviously the #1. But you can’t say that the OG Droid, and even the Droid X didn’t bring Android to where it is today. Both Moto! they’ve just flopped the last few years. but deep down inside, us OG Droid guys always wanted to see a Motorola come back, and still do!

        • squiddy20

          “they aren’t nobody important in the real world.” Hate to break it to you, but this IS the “real world” and they are writers for a tech blog that thousands, maybe even millions of people read every day. Who the hell are you again?

          “They nothing more than a bunch ofpom pom waving stock android lovers” I seem to recall you making more or less this same “insult” (if you could it that) a few months ago, only they were pro Verizon/Droid then. So which will it be next month? Pro Apple?

          “Now they want wave pom poms for Motorola who has been the biggest JOKE of the android platform for over four years now.” 1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it was Motorola and Verizon that initially made Android well known, not Samsung. Also, Four years ago, Samsung put out crap products, now they’re “on top”, to use one of your ridiculous sayings. Who’s to say the same thing won’t happen to Motorola? Ignorant moron.

          “Samsung owns android period” Last I heard, Android was a product of Google, not Samsung. Sure, Samsung may have the most market share, but 3 years ago, the iPhone was the “top dawg”. Surely you of all people realize that times change, companies come and go, and viewpoints/opinions change? Or have you forgotten how, just 2 years ago, you were practically preaching the HTC Bible?

        • Ruel Smith

          Actually, Android never got its legs until Verizon launched it’s Droid program – it was a Motorola phone. Prior to that, most people never even heard of Android.

        • umbrellacorp

          Inflammatory, but sometimes the truth is inflammatory, isn’t it? Moto X is way overhyped here. I ain’t leaving anytime soon, though.

      • Jim890

        I have to agree with you on that. They just don’t talk about the “OVERHYPED” MOTO X Phone, But They seem to be all over Motorola WAY TOO MUCH then any other company.

      • feztheforeigner

        Idk I’m really loving my G2…

    • Detonation

      The fake lacing looks so tacky and cheap though. Like the chinese faux leather tablet cases you find on ebay.

      A simple textured or matte/soft touch back is the way to go.

      • Colin Huber

        Man, I think it looks pretty real (at least from the press shots and reveal videos).

      • shea241

        I agree, a soft rubber back would have been great.

      • Sporttster

        Don’t really buy it for the look of the back though, do ya? I put covers on my phones so it won’t be seen anyway. I’m more concerned with screen quality, phone quality, sd slot, powerful battery….ya know? The truly important stuff

    • EvanTheGamer

      Definitely agree. The leather looks pretty cool to me. It’s just different, and being different isn’t bad.

    • chris125

      Not to mention they have alternative backs you can buy and change if you don’t like the faux leather

      • hkklife

        Agreed. It’s a removable back that gives access to a removable battery and a microSD slot. That’s something that NO ONE else is giving us these days. If you don’t like the faux leather, then buy an aftermarket battery cover. It’s better than the Droid Ultra or G2 which are the worst of both worlds (fixed batteries concealed by cheap glossy, slick plastic).

    • cknight91

      The thing that no one has asked…isn’t the white version going to get super dirty over time since it’s faux leather??

      • bbbbb

        its plastic not real leather, you just wash it off. Like any other cover

        • Adrynalyne

          Which means it will yellow quite easily.


          /me waits for the obligatory “but, you can buy another cover!”

          • sk3litor

            This to the tenth degree. Like my shell toes. Pure nasty. Ever see an htc one x in a best buy? Makes me wanna wear gloves every where I go.

          • BananaBob

            But you can buy another battery cover.. so its no big deal!

          • Cary

            No, it doesn’t mean that at all. But you keep making up reasons to bash the cover, and ignore the 99% of other reasons people might enjoy this device.

      • Tim242

        It’s just a soft touch plastic.

    • VZW4GLTE

      People just want to find something to complain about. When they know they’ll have a case on it, or will be able to buy a new cover for next to nothing. Be happy people that you have a beast of a phone with a 13mp camera, 3GB or ram, 1080p screen, 13mp camera which shoots 4K video.. 2yrs ago most of you were on the OG Droid. But yet a logo and a battery cover will sway your decision?? Cmon, Hogwash!!

      • Jonathan Williams

        I call FACKWORS on your hogwash.

          Needed for S-pen… but I’m praying for someone discovering bootloader unlock. Then it’s help out time for making an AOSP skinned TW Rom to retain S-pen. Prefably vice versa to add S-pen functionality to an AOSP Rom though…

        • Guest

          lol thats a horrible analogy. paint vs software skin? i think what you meant is “if you think a new interior will turn a pinto into a ferrari, you’re mistaken.” and what dan said would fix 90% of it. Have a s3 with nova and works perfectly fine no touchwiz lag.

        • Tim242

          The Note 2 is a beast. So is the Note 3.

        • crazed_z06

          Do about what? It’s a settings menu.

          • Adrynalyne

            Yeah, just like stock Android….not. My point was that Touchwiz is far deeper than any launcher replacement.

          • Tim242

            It’s a settings menu. You shouldn’t have to see it very often. But there are TW ROM’s that are AOSP themed. Best of both worlds.

          • Adrynalyne

            What part of, me pointing out that a launcher doesn’t hide Touchwiz are you not able to comprehend? My advice is for you to read the original comment and follow it down.

        • Michael Pahl

          I hear ya. Well then vote with your $ and get an unlocked phone you can flash CM or whatever.

    • Chippah

      After almost 4 years of pure AOSP its actually a breath
      of fresh air to some of us believe it or not.
      Its now got speed and polish now too..

      • shea241

        Yeah, they really tightened up the pinstripe and made those giant buttons really pop in the notification area on my Note2.

    • chris125

      Because TW on the note actually has some nice additions, not just a supersized phone with no useful additions

    • Tim242

      It’s simple. It has more functionality. If you don’t like it, ROM it.

      • Adrynalyne

        Or…don’t buy it.

        • Tim242

          Or if you don’t like it, stop trolling articles about it. You are so quick to call somebody a troll, when you are the very definition of a troll. Remember the saying about stones and glass houses?

  • BRIM

    Wow. For once I can make the VZ branding disappear as easy as changing the back cover.

    • Chippah

      for twice – GNEX..

      • Tim242

        GS3 and GS4.

  • vitriolix

    Love the hardware, but that back is disgustingly hideous. There will be a thriving aftermarket for non fugly backs

    • Agreed. Slimy gross plastic to faux leather? Not an upgrade, Samsung.

      • Mike Hilal

        I havent seen it in person, but in the photos it looks far better than the plastic they had. Reminds me of what BB did on the bold, except that was wrapped in vinyl…not hard plastic.

      • Mike Hilal

        Also, I’d bet you can read the 4G LTE logo from 100 yards judging by the scale of it

      • nwd1911

        Am I the only one who likes the back? Also, kudos to Samsung’s marketing department who saw an opportunity to sell a ton of extra backs (colors and I assume at some point textures). Not quite Moto Maker, but customization nonetheless.

        • BananaBob

          I actually like how it looks too.

        • Tim242

          I am looking forward to it : )

      • Chippah

        but it IS an upgrade from glossy greasy backs og the n2 and g2,
        its got a removable battery and SD card.

        Root + BL unlock, crazy battery life and screen. what else can you ask for besides full metal chassis?

      • chris125

        Still better than what moto is using on the moto x back

        • Aaron

          You seriously think that this faux leather with fake stitching looks better than back of any of the moto X backs?

          • chris125

            Can’t feel any cheaper than the moto x back.. Plus you can replace it something You can’t on the x

      • Tim242

        Your precious plastic on the Moto X is no upgrade to Kevlar either. You have become too biased. Be careful, that turns people off .

  • samosa king

    Well looks like Verizon learnt a lesson with the Galaxy Note 2 home botton logo issue.

  • Daniel

    ugh, when will they ditch the awful home button finally?

    • LionStone

      Not yet. That’s where the Tou-, I mean, fingerprint scanner will go 🙂

    • Tim242

      I like it

  • 1bad69z28

    Sumsung’s new oversized smartphone line Motto should be “GO BIG or GO HOME!!!”

  • Steve Ballmer

    4G LTE logo…hellz yeah now everybody at the office will no imma boss.

    • Ej McCarty

      The boss of using the correct word right?

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    Verizon’s poor orphaned home button logos. Poor little things had to shack up in the top right corner of the LG G2…

  • 213ninja

    they couldn’t go with real leather…too difficult to stamp logos on……..

    • Tim242

      I do not want animal skin on my phone.

      • 213ninja

        That’s cool. Some might. Like the old BB Bolds I think? Interchangeable with options would be best imo

      • Tyler

        You don’t want cowhide on the back of your phone?

        • Tim242

          Hana I never liked the idea of leather. Now that I’m Vegan, it’s a definite no-go!

  • akazerotime

    I call shenanigans.. no logo on the front is the tell that it can’t be real

  • Verizon missed a spot! Someone is getting written up at this moment…

    • Caveman

      Most likely fired! As in leave the building now, security will be escorting you out.

  • Eric

    Wait wait, I think they forgot to add the front logo… Looks like they could fit one in up by the samsung logo…

    • Adam Truelove

      They could just put it right in the middle of the screen, plenty of room there.

    • Zach Armstrong

      Or they could put it on the Home button like they did last year

      • Eric

        You clearly need to read the article.

  • Daniel Clifford

    Dat Logo

    • Jaxle67

      I m just gonna cover the back of mine with some cool camo duck tape
