It's always unfortunate when you think you may have a fake Samsung Galaxy S4. Thankfully, VisiHow has a great guide to teach you what to look for to find out whether or not your device is a fake or not. Make sure you also use the Samsung codes to determine whether or not your device is genuine -- we will link them again here so you can quickly try them out:

If these codes work, your device is very likely genuine; if not, there is a chance it could be fake. Call Samsung's customer service line and give them your IMEI and serial numbers. If they find your numbers in their system, you have a genuine device. If they don't, you unfortunately have a fake.
