    If you want a completely new account you can remove your current one and add a new account.

    Remove a Google or other account from your phone
    1. Open your phone's Settings app.
    2. Tap Accounts. If you don't see "Accounts," tap Users & accounts.
    3. Tap the account you want to remove [​IMG] Remove account.
    4. If this is the only Google Account on the phone, you'll need to enter your phone's pattern, PIN, or password for security.

    Add a Google or other account to your phone
    1. Open your phone's Settings app.
    2. Tap Accounts. If you don't see "Accounts," tap Users & accounts.
    3. At the bottom, tap Add account.
    4. Tap the type of account you want to add.
      • To add your Google Account, tap Google. When you sign in with a Google Account, the email, contacts, calendar events, and other data associated with that account automatically sync with your phone.
      • To add a different personal account, tap Personal (IMAP) or Personal (POP3). You'd generally choose these if you use an email program like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail. Learn how to use IMAP or POP3 with Gmail.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    6. If you're adding accounts, you may need to enter your phone's pattern, PIN, or password for security.

    You can either remove or add another email account. But if your plan is to dispose your phone, just click factory reset and it will automatically log out.

    I found if you want a different visible username on many sites such as You Tube comments etc, you can do that on your Google / Gmail account.
    I still retain the same name based Gmail address, but that doesn't show except on emails, afaik.(I'm fairly new at changing this)

    Keeping the account will trip Factory Reset Protection after factory resetting, when selling a phone you should remove your account first then reset. :thumbsupdroid:

    Kate has the best answer, always keep your first gmail account in case something really horrible does happen with your device!
