Most cloned phones have features that are missing, sometimes even including sensors. However, that doesn't mean that you have a fake Galaxy S5. Sometimes a software glitch can cause phone sensors and modes not to work properly. By using the Samsung Kies program on your PC, you can determine whether your GS5 is fake or genuine.
