Samsung did good job on this one, and deserves the recognition...

That's my opinion.

OMG I'm doing that asap! So you just used a pencil eraser, did it leave and marks/scratches?

I'm definitely doing it...I had this idea of removing the logo for weeks but haven't put it in practice.

turned out a simple way to do that ^_^

i personally would just remove everything altogether. not to discredit the 2 companies for the fine work theyve done, but all black no logos just looks sexy. besides, you've credited the companies already by buying their products.

I covered with sellotape the area around samsung logo then i rubbed it with a rubber with a red part and blue part, mainly with the blue part(harder) and then cleaning it with cotton.I had no scrathches but the part of the plastic with the logo was looking a little blurry at first from some angle, clean again with cotton and rubbing alcohol and it will reduce it.Today with the invinsible shield looks nice and shiny!

I do some modelling and would normally use a sand paper after I stick 2 plastic parts together (400, 800, 1000, 2000, 3000) and will finish it with a polishing compound.

for budget or practicality I use this



just make sure you use number 4 to make it shining.

I have a black soft case on my phone. Looks great and I don't have to rub any logos off. /shrug
