    Im so tired of every manufacturer putting their disgusting logo on their nice case. This needs to stop. It is very unlikely that your logo will be legible enough to generate significant sales and it ruins your product. Apple products are known for their minimalist look and I've had to pass up dozens of products due to ugly logos. Stop. Just stop case manufacturers.

    Let's be honest, which of these would you rather buy?

    It's to "stand out" from millions of generic cases out there. I agree though, some logos are poorly designed and placed.

    Make your own case, use duct tape to cover the logo, or just don't look at the logo.

    Seems like a pretty silly complaint considering logos are on essentially everything, included the phone you use

    I like Logos. I once bought a Lincoln car but there were no logos on it and i payed a lot of money for it. But when I got home all my friends said I had a Yugo. And they all laughed at me the whole time I had the car.:mad:

    My iPhones have had a big logo of a piece of fruit on the back of the phone.

    I don't have a problem if the logo is simple, elegant, tasteful and unobtrusive.

    Tasteful:

    I can understand where the OP is coming from because I have been turned off by big, ugly logos before.

    Ugly logo:

    I've got the Griffin reveal. No unsightly logo placement at all. :)

    Logos are essential. Self explanatory. I have to agree with logo placement, and I like how Spigen/belkin/griffin places their logo, as well as its design. Very clean.

    Yeah it all depends on the logo and where it is placed. Some are fine, some have turned me off completely. It's unfortunate because I've definitely seen some cases that were very well designed .... minus the huge ugly logo.

    Agreed, I never buy a case or bumper that has a logo on it.

    I don't care, as long as it's tasteful. Can't be any worse than owning a gold phone. :)

    They'll "learn" when their sales are significantly impacted. That's currently not the case as you're among the minority. You can certainly gripe about it but it would be more productive to find a solution that fits your specific needs/wants than to expect the entire industry to change for you.

    I honestly don't know what some of these manufacturers are thinking with huge gaudy logos. But I guess people must still buy them......

    I hate logos. If it's unobtrusive it's one thing, many are overkill though with cases.

    If I like the product enough and the logo looks cool I personally could care less.

    Many cases have a nicely placed and good looking logo on them.

    iSkin makes some nice cases that I would have purchased if it wasn't for their big, ugly logo.

    Do they have problems getting gold iPhones, too?
