    There will be no carrier branding on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

    6 monthes ago - By Phone Arena

    Many U.S. carriers are no longer branding their logo on the body of new handsets. The nation's largest carrier, Verizon, was considered the worse of the bunch at one time, with its distinctive check mark symbol stamped on the rear cover of many different models. The AT&T logo also has adorned the back of many high profile units, sticking out like a sore thumb. The peak of this insanity took place with the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Not only was the Verizon logo printed nice and large on the rear cover of the screen, it also was printed on the phablet's home button. That ...

    Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Unboxing: Can We Just Call it Galaxy S7 Mini Already?

    6 monthes ago - By GSMDome

    It's very clear what Samsung is going for, in the midrange segment at least.

    Priced at $330 on Amazon, the handset comes with an USB Type C cable inside the box, an Adaptive Fast Charger, manual, metal key and headphones. The phone is resilient to dust and water...

    6 monthes ago - By PhoneDog

    Carrier branding is pretty common when it comes to Android phones, even flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G6 . But that's not the case with the Galaxy S8.
    There will be no US carrier branding on the Samsung Galaxy S8. That means that no matter which carrier you get your GS8 or GS8+ from, you'll get a front that's nearly all screen and a back that only includes Samsung's branding and the name of your model .
    Branding can ruin the design of a phone, and we've seen some pretty egregious carrier branding in the past. For example, the Verizon Galaxy Note II had huge Verizon and...
