    So yesterday I purchased a Note 4 from a small shop here in Hong Kong. This was the box:

    Strange build number in my Note 4. Please help.-wp_20150319_09_04_45_pro.jpg

    Now you can see the model number written is SM 910U. The box was sealed and he opened it in front of me. Now the model number of the set inside was SM 910L and it had Oleh written on the back. So I asked him why this difference, he told me that this was one of the earlier models before the international version (SM 910U) was available.

    Not sure if that is correct. I don't know why Samsung will put SM 910L inside a SM 910 U box. But ok...

    So I downloaded CPU Z and ran it and it showed that the processor was Exynos 5433. Ram was 3gb and everything else was as expected. Antutu and other bench marks also were on the mark. Therefore, I dished out the cash and purchased it.

    However, when I came home I noticed that the build number was this:

    Strange build number in my Note 4. Please help.-1831_48_20.png

    I checked online and the build numbers on the devices did not contain the 'mod by...' line. So what does this mean? has a custom rom been installed on this?

    I played around with this last night and tested SPen functions and checked other settings and everything seems to be just fine. However I am not 100% sure I have a genuine product.

    Please advise.

    I'm no expert but I would return that phone ASAP if you can. Samsung is not shipping any phone with "Mod By" in the build number.
    Good luck.

    I guess you are right. I searched online and I found this site: 靠谱搜索 网盘搜索 靠谱网盘搜索

    So it seems MOD by ZDS is some sort of custom rom. There are other sites pointing to Baidu but unfortunately they are all in Chinese and I can't read.
