    Question Have She Bought A Fake Galaxy S4?

    My mother has recently bought a Galaxy S4 (second hand). Upon obtaining the phone she encountered various problems. One of these problems being, when she was typing the letter displayed would be totally different to the letter she tapped on (even when I tried rapid clicking the space key it would display letters that were no where near the space key). On closer inspection by me, I noticed that the Galaxy S4 did not have the Galaxy S4 logo on the back of the phone (I also heard on the S4 the Samsung logo on the back is printed and not engraved, on this phone it's engraved). I also noticed that the firmware installed was similar to the touchwiz interface but not perfection to what it's actually supposed to be like on the Galaxy S4. I will post pictures below of the box and the phone (on and off) to see if anyone can identify if it is fake or not! (Please note that all the pictures taken are straight after I factory reset the device and no modifications have been made to this phone by me or my mother).

    Try *#0*# or any other samsung secret codes, if it works then it's a real S4.

    Or try checking your firmware with Samsung Kies.
