    I'm using Samsung Galaxy Trend 3 SM-G3502U, having android of version 4.2.2
    Since this is a Chinese device, so it was normal to be shipped without GApps. So, I tried to to install the latest version among the versions which are compatible with Android 4.2.2 of the following apps from APKMirror:

    Google Play Services
    Google Play Services Framework
    Google Calendar Sync
    Google Contacts Sync
    Google Account Manager

    Still, no luck, since when I tried logging into Snapchat, a pop-up "popped" out, saying that google play services is not supported by my device.
    Also, when I installed and opened the latest version of Play Store among the compatible versions for Android 4.4.2 from APKMirror, it showed "Error retrieving information from server RH-01" which meant that I didn't have the compatible GApps installed.
    Now, are there anymore ways to try out for me so that my phone supports Google Services Framework, or I am left out with installing a custom ROM?
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!!!
    And wait, there is one more information I can give you if you find it useful.
    Having all the apps listed above installed, I installed the "Device ID" app by Evozi. It couldn't show me the GSF. The space for that was left out empty instead.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    I would be surprised if there is a version of Google Play Services that is both compatible with Android 4.2.2 and is current enough to be supported for the Play Store. That OS is 8 years old. For that reason alone, it won't connect to the Play Store.

    Man, I have another samsung device (International, not Chinese ) having android 4.2.2 and it has the latest version of google play store with it and it works perfectly fine.
    And let away having play store, IT WOULD'NT SUPPORT GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES.
