This is one of the worst answers to a question that no one's asked that I've ever seen.

BTW - if there are people that can't tell which end of the phone is up - leave them be. The world is better off not hearing them.


To be fair, both my devices now (Nexus 7, GNex) are completely gloss black with no clear identifying features. I have a few times picked up my phone and held it upside down. However I do agree that this is not an issue that I would want Google wasting resources on, as most likely it will only be Nexus devices that don't have manufacturer or carrier branding to identify "This way up"

P.S. All will be forgiven if Apple rolls out this feature on the new iPhone, and Google sues the pants off them though
