    Default Real or Fake GS5 need help ASAP

    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?

    On my t-mobile galaxy s5 the k isn't spinning either, and since I bought this directly from the carrier, so I know it's not fake

    Thanks for your reply. Everything else is authentic except that K not spinning so i was thinking maybe its a glitch.

    The K only spins after you hold it for a couple of seconds. Just pointing to that out
    Model or build number would be a more accurate way of checking if it was authentic or not.
