    When phones such as the new HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S5 boot up, consumers are greeted by a "Powered by Android" logo near the bottom of the screen. But sources confirmed that Google now requires that manufacturers add the "Powered by Android" logo to their splash screens in order to get certified for its Mobile Services. Most people likely won't even notice the logo, nor will they care. But, making it a requirement on all devices running Google Mobile Services is an indication that the software giant is concerned that manufacturer branding efforts are making it hard for consumers to know what mobile OS truly powers their devices.
