    Hi! I am new to this forum. I just got my brand new Galaxy Note 5 from this seller called "232tech" he seems like a good seller with lots of sales. But I open the SEALED package to find the USB cable is not neatly wrapped like in many unboxing videos. I also found a piece of hair in my box. And I also want to know how to activate my free goodies from Samsung Life but it's the SEA variant and I don't live there. My model is the August 2015 batch.

    Was the original samsung seal(sticker) on both sides of the package broken?
    As these devices get hand packed theres a slight chance of a hair getting inside the box I think. They wear hair nets but you never know.
    I got a chinese model from ebay myself and i was very sceptical when i received the box. It didnt look genuine to me. That glitter stuff looked really cheap, but it turned out to be a real device

    I've heard that some sellers open the box and check that all things are in place (I don't really know if that's a REAL STORY but....). If it works and has no dents or scratches, I'd just call it a day and keep it- it's an awesome phone.

    I heard finding a hair is good luck...

    Haha you're right I was really lucky then... there was a 50/50 chance of a scam, you never know if they send you a Stone instead of a phone

    Worse yet a Chinese "duplicate" that fools you for a few weeks.
