    Default Fake s4 or not

    Hello.

    i got a Samsung galaxy S4 GT-I9500.
    and got some problems

    i dont even know if my phone is real or fake
    its a chinese or japanese phone.

    the first problem is i dont have a official task manager.
    Example if you press the homebutton u can close apps and going to task manager shutdown apps and seeing how much RAM u got etc.
    and am missing some other options.

    2nd problem
    I cant connect my phone to Kies.
    But i can connect to windows putting stuff in it or delete.

    3rd problem
    i got 8,92GB space.
    but i can use only 2GB off them for apps/games/music/etc


    My phone specification :
    model : GT-I9500
    Android version : 4.2.2
    base band version : I9500XXUAMDK
    Kernel version : 3.4.5-526212 se.infra@SEP-111 #1 Tue APR 23 23:00:57 KST 2013
    Build number : JDQ39.I9500XXUAMDK

    _____
    Some one at XDA dev site said to me if the Download Mode is Chinese it's fake and if it is English it is orginal .

    so mine is chinese...
    another thing i installed a app called : my device pro
    it says i got a total ram of : 971 MB and am prety sure a real one got 2GB
    And the display resolution says 720X1280.
    And i though it should be 1920X1080
    And it says on the app that my phone was made on may 17 2014 and not APR 23 2013
    i tryed 3-4 hardware info apps they all say i got 970-980mb ram.

    is the app wrong or am i real scammed ? :/

    Easiest test ever. Go to a room with adequate lighting.

    Tilt the screen and see if the screen is dark blueish.

    If It doesn't have a tint than it is fake
