    Hey all , i got an offer to buy a samsung galaxy s4 for like 240 eurs , and in my country , the price doesn't usually go below 300 eurs for used phones.
    So anyways , the seller already posted few pictures on the site , and then upon my request , he made more pictures which are a bit foggy , so i am not sure what am i dealing with..
    My question is , does this seem fake to you guys? What should i ask him to make a picture of , so i can be sure its not a copy , but an original phone?
    Here are the first pictures already posted for the sale:

    This is for the Note 3 but most of the same things should apply
    Ask for screenshots of the "About phone" page. The fake ones usually have a slightly different model number and an older version of the OS than their real counterparts

    can you post me an example (a picture) of what do you exactly need? Thanks !
    Edit , after i tell him to download the benchmark app and run it , he says buddy i do not understand in those apps , send me the picture of what you really need , i have nothing to hide , its an original phone.

    +1 for an about phone screen shot.
    Bench mark could be helpful too as that will show the processor etc being used to compare with a genuine.

    It's definitely a S4. My bro has an S4 so I can say for sure.

    It's kind of hard to make out what the bottom rows say but it looks like a real one to me. Model number and processor match. Resolution is 1080p, unlike a lot of fakes
    Can't be 100% sure but we'll what someone else says. So far you have two votes that it's real

    I think you need to ask him for a 'real' screenshot from the phone itself.
