Customs authorities destroyed 250 fake Galaxy S4s found in Germany

The Galaxy S4 isn’t the latest and greatest smartphone in the world anymore, and that might have led some to believe they could import fake copies of the device and try to sell them in Germany. Well, whatever the plan was, it didn’t work, as customs authorities in the country found and destroyed 250 fake Galaxy S4s with a hammer. The counterfeit units were being imported from Hong Kong, and the authorities are still trying to deduce whether it was a one-time thing or whether fake versions of various smartphones are being imported and circulated in the country on a regular basis.

Either way, this was one shipment that wasn’t meant to make it into market. In case you go out to buy a Galaxy S4 in the near future, be sure to check it’s the real deal before handing over your money, or you might just rue the transaction later on.

Just don’t buy it in ‘cheaper shops’.

Who’d you think is more likely to sell you a fake S4; ‘Media Markt’ (2nd largest Consumer electronics shop in the world after BestBuy) or ‘Fritz’s Phones in the back alley with the blinded windows’?

In other countries they try to intimidate the Sophistication of the authentic Galaxy S4. Some say Air Gestures but dosen’t work. Dual Shot was promised in the premium copy retailers but no shapes or frames or design when using the dual shot feature. And processors are ARM Cortex A7 processors clocked at 1.2 GHz. That’s an image of an copy of a Galaxy S4.
