Confirmed: The AT&T Nexus 6 sports the carrier’s logo on the back and boot animation


As we all feared, AT&T has indeed slapped it’s logo on the back of the Nexus 6. Like seriously, why did you have to do that?

Wait. That’s not all. AT&T also included their boot animation along with the Google one. I am actually one of their customers who decided to give them a shot after being off contract for years. I must say that I’m disappointed.

Sure you can unlock the bootloader (it is unlockable by the way), root and flash the Google Play Store Nexus 6 factory image. But why do I have to do it?

XDA member “HCDroid” posted pictures of his AT&T Nexus 6 and voiced his disappointment with his findings (link below).

What do you guys think? What if AT&T gets involved in future OS updates?

My phone is going back. Lesson learned.

    You shouldn’t be getting a Nexus device if you’re not going to root anyways, so who cares? AT&T logo is no different than the DUAL LG logo on the bottom of the Nexus 5, neither look bad, and again, who cares? AT&T can get involved in updates all they want, won’t matter rooted anyways. One of if not the biggest perk of owning a Nexus is for the largest and best development community on Android.

    Is the OS altered in any way? Or is it the same stock image as the google Play version, minus the boot screen of course?
