    Default Is my Galaxy s5 FAKE?

    Hey guys i bought a galaxy s5 on craigslist a few days agoo.. for ATT i have checked everything inside and out and matches as it should. Except for one thing that makes me question if its a clone. When i hit Android version the K does come up but DOSENT spin. Then goes to the red screen and i hold down and see all those boxes that are like a game with cupcake, jellybean etc. Should i be worried? i ordered one under warranty from ATT they are sending me one but are not aware of the not spnning K should i be afraid to send this device back?

    Go to settings > more > about phone and check the build number. What does it say?

    It looks like that is one of the latest builds for the AT&T variant S5. Could you screen shot the Kit Kat graphic?

    Either way, Looks like to are getting it replaced, so Let us know how that goes.

    That along with the build number confirm that it is definitely not a fake. They're still willing to replace it even though you bought it from someone else?
    If that was the only thing you were worried about, I don't see the need to send it back.

    Don't worry about the K not spinning!
    You have to actually touch the screen in order for the K to spin.

    The K only spins when you hold your finger on it
