    I have purchased Galaxy s4 recently in used condition. the buyer claimed it to be i9500 and in the settings > about device > model number shows as i9500. One day i turned mobile internet on and it showed 4g sign, so i just got a dang up, and hooked up applications from playstore to check the cores and it showed 4 cores and the cores specification was qualcom snapdragon 600 1.89 which matched with i9505. Then i removed the battery and look onto the back of phone, it showed i9500 and imei (which when i checked on internet was invalid). It says root access granted in CPU - Z software and android is 4.3. Mobile hotspot doesnt turns on and phone restarts when i start any benchmark application, naming antutu and geekbench. Please help to fix it and help me understand which model i actually have???

    Sorry, but if the IMEI is invalid, that means the phone is blacklisted, and was either stolen or not paid for. Either way, you won't be able to use it as a phone, and we can't help you restore the IMEI. I suggest you contact the seller and ask for a refund. Thread closed.
