    Hi there. I bought a used galaxy S5 a few weeks ago and I was aware of the fake ones when purchasing it. I did my research and everything checks out on the phone I got except the back cover. From what I have heard the real ones will have a slightly rubbery feeling back cover? Mine feels like plastic without any rubber feel.

    Are there different versions of the phone with different type backs?

    Thanks.

    Genuine Galaxy - Phone Info will probably see the difference too. You just run 8it and it'll tell you if the phone is a genuine Galaxy or not.
