    Default Which variant is my Galaxy S3?

    Hi everyone.
    I know it is very silly question but i am very confused.
    I bought a S3 with 2GB RAM and LTE. I am not sure that it is i9305 or SHV210s.
    SHV210s variant has an antenna but my cell does not have it, so i thought it is i9305 but when i go to download mode (using volume down+home+power keys) it shows its model as SHV210s.
    how can i be sure about my cell's variant because i want to install custom ROM on it???

    Go to settings > more > about device and it will show the model number.

    Or look under the battery.

    That would probably be better.

    i think sticker is fake because it says i9300.
    stock or custom rom of i9300 was installed in it when i purchased,
    in settings->about phone -> model number was also showing as i9300,
    then i installed stock rom of shv210s (stock rom of i9300 and i9305 was failed to install) ,now it is showing shv210s.

    If the stock ROM showed i9300, then that is your model number.

    I was confused at first lol
    I didn't like TouchWiz. It made performance worse than it should have been, and now with SlimKat, the phone doesn't lag like it used to
