Motorola recently announced the new iteration of the Droid TURBO, and the specsheet is worthy of a premium device. Particularly the shatterproof screen which can take quite a beating.
However, there is a catch. The device, exclusive to Verizon, has the infamous logo slapped on to the bottom bezel. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this and it probably won’t be the last.
Thankfully, there is a method to remove it. As it turns out, the ShatterShield technology, which makes the screen shatterproof, includes an outer layer. Made of acrylic polymer, the Verizon logo is printed on this outer layer.
Simply put, you can easily remove the outer layer, and in turn remove Verizon’s isignia. This will obviously remove a layer of the screen and likely affect the integrity of the durability.
While it’s too early to say, it may also void your warranty. And as Pocketnow pointed out, it is likely that the international variant, the Moto X Force, will have the same (unbranded) outer layer and thus replacements for it may be made available to swap on.
You may also be able to hide it using a tinted screen protector, if you don’t feel like fiddling too much.
