One of the most aggravating things carriers do to Android


This type of thing is a purchase stopper for me.

Look at this photo:

Notice anything wrong?

There is a status bar full of actual notifications (Including a Motorola one for some reason...) and fucking AT&T still has to have their logo take up more space than anything else up there.

The logo is on the back of the phone, at the bottom of the shade when you pull it down, and you know, you _bought it at their store and pay a bill every month_. Do we really need it taking up actual functional screen real estate?

I wish reviewers would call this bullshit out. It's _not_ a part of stock android. Nexus' don't do it, the Google play edition phones don't do it, and some carriers/phone combos don't do it either.
