    I bought my galaxy s5 three months back and i was happy with it. Until the time i tried to delete contacts off of my phone. I looked for a delete function on the phone, but failed to find any. I looked online and many video tutorials had a function to delete contacts in the app, but i couldn't find any. Their layout looked like this: My S5 doesn't have as many features as others?-picadillycircus_picadillycircus_how_to_create_delete_edit_and_manage_contacts_on_samsung_galaxy_.png While mine looked like this: My S5 doesn't have as many features as others?-screenshot_2015-06-16-18-25-00.png That wasn't my only problem. I realized that my s5 version was in kitkat 4.4.2 and lollipop was already out. I tried to update my system, but it said my system was up to date. I tried kies to update, but kies wouldn't detect my system. There were many other problems, like missing some of the settings and functions that a s5 should normally have, not being able to change my lockscreen without an app, and so on. I really want to solve this, thanks.

    Can you boot into Download Mode and tell me what the Knox Warranty Void: counter shows.

    To boot into Download Mode and to see what the Knox Warranty counter looks like, see this video...

    It is as I feared!

    The answer to your thread title, "My S5 doesn't have as many features as others?", is because you have a clone/fake phone as per #1.5 of Galaxy S5, Fake Clone or Genuine - Dummies Guide

    There are a lot of clues in your previous posts but I needed to be sure.

    Hmmm ... have you tried tabbing over the contacts page? The images you provided indicate you're viewing your call log.

    I recently rec'd a bogus S5. It works with my sim card so it wasn't a TOTAL loss, just disappointing. I may just give it to my daughter. My question is regarding a factory reset. When I reset the phone, the boot animation is no longer the galaxy S5. It said mediatek or something with the android guy, then android glows in the background on the next screen. Is there any way I can restore the S5 animation?
