An aggressive rubdown is all that’s needed to rid your Nexus 6 of its Verizon logo
There were of complaints when it was discovered Verizon would be slapping its logo on the back of the Nexus 6 — which is designed to be a pure Android device. But with a bit of aggressive rubbing, you can get rid of it in no time.
While most of us would just accept the Verizon logo is there and live with it, Reddit user “courageousrobot” decided to take action.
“After some examination, it became clear it was just a decal and not actually etched into the plastic,” he says. “Some light scraping with the rounded-edge of a paper clip and my fingernail took it right off.”
A “bit of residue remained,” but a microfiber cloth doused in rubbing alcohol was all that was needed to buff it all out. And as you can see from the image above, there are no marks left on the back of the Nexus 6; it looks as good as new.
If your handset’s Nexus logo is bothering you, then, this is a quick and easy way to get rid of it. So long as you’re careful you shouldn’t do any damage to the back of your device, at removing a logo isn’t going to invalidate its warranty.
