    Bought my phone from the street and I'm getting paranoid wondering whether some malware or code has been injected.

    Hello. Welcome to Android Central.

    They ARE out to get you. 😊

    One way can be to scroll down in General - About Device - Status - Device Status, should show official. (this may only be for some versions)

    Download Samsung Kies on a pc then connect via usb.

    Run third party apps like Genuine Galaxy, Phone Spec, or Antutu (info), though Antutu has been shown as inaccurate.

    There are other options I haven't thought of.

    Good luck. I'm sure it's fine.

    If you have a reason to suspect it's fake, come back.

    Sorry, the question was if it was rooted, not if it was a fake, but I guess most of these still apply.
