    What software version is it running? It will be in settings>about device>software info. Did you buy the device new?

    I just made an account but it says android version 6.0.1 but I'm positive it isn't and every fingerprint works wether its saved or a complete strangers and it says it has a custom build labeled SEPF_SM_G930F_5.0.2_0008 I'm not sure what that means but i figured i'd add it I'm positive my phone is the real deal i think someone tried to put a custom rom on it and didn't take it off when i got it i didn't get it brand new.

    Everything you have mentioned didn't seem right. I'm afraid you have a clone. Read this Unidentified Firmware on S7 | Samsung Galaxy S7

    Go to the appstore, download and run Antitumor benchmark and compare the hardware info on Samsung's website

    I can't seem to find the app. Is there another way to tell?

    I believe Pugs was the victim of overzealous auto-correct. Try Antutu Benchmark: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...utu.ABenchMark

    I don't know, I haven't used the app, I was just assisting with Pugs' suggestion as I have heard of the app I thought he was suggesting. I'll let Pugs answer that.

    Yes, apologies for the autocorrect and thanks @hallux for directing you. You needn't bother with the second 3D app
