I think most of it stems from something +Verizon Wireless
did on one of the older note phones (it might have been the note II). They put their logo IN THE MIDDLE of the home button, which I thought was pretty brash and abrasive and, had I been considering that phone, the Verizon logo home button would have killed it for me. Ever since then, it always seems like Verizon's branding is noticeably worse than ANY of their competition.
Doesn't bother me anymore since I switched to +T-Mobile
, so if Verizon wants to tramp-stamp it up, meh... I don't care. Just makes me glad I'm not with them anymore! :-)
