Amazon has the Samsung Galaxy S5 both refurbished and new for the same price. Which is better. Refurbished phones have a longer guarantee but besides that I don't see a reason not to buy new?

At point can you detect and confirm that your S5 is fake, using the test codes?

After running test codes such as :. Software Version, PDA, CSC, and Modem - *#1234#. Software and Hardware Info - *#12580369#. Test mode - *#0*#. Service Mode - *#197328640#. ADC Reading - *#0228#. Bluetooth Test Mode - *#232331#. Bluetooth Address - *#232337#. Samsung Ciphering Information - *#32489#). . I realized that. 1. the service code did not respond . 2. Samsung Ciphering Information - *#32489# also did not respond . 3. The Bluetooth Test Mode - *#232331# and the . Bluetooth Address - *#232337# also did not respond but the rest of the codes responded. Some of the test codes provided in your article responds but other do not. I have tried: Bluetooth Test Mode - *#232331#

Did not work on my phone. I think it was caused by: I have just got a new Samsung phone and want to know if it is not fake.
