    I've had this phone for 22 days and have already been having a lot more problems with this then my s4 mini. But one problem is there is a setting in about device that says "United Arab Emirates". I live in the UK and use my phone in the UK. Is this going to be a problem I need to contact Samsung about? ? Will this effect my phones warranty and performance?

    Hello and welcome to Android Central coreyjone5!

    Your Samsung Galaxy S5 model, G900F, is running United Arab Emirates firmware, OEC, for Product code XSG. There have been 2 further updates since that release. Under normal circumstances, it does not matter where you are in the world or which carrier you are with as it is Samsung that issue the updates.

    For reasons that your phone has not been updated, see #1.10 of 41 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    Did you receive this phone, new, direct from a U.K. carrier or get it off of the web?

    Check your Product code in Phone Info as per #1.8 of the above, Dummies Guide.

    Try connecting your phone to either of the Samsung PC suites, Kies or Smart Switch, to see if it offers you the latest update.

    If the above fails, you can download the latest stock Samsung firmware for the U.A.E, below, and flash it to your phone by carefully following the instructions and video in the links of #1.11 of the aforementioned, Dummies Guide.

    I got it off of Amazon. My dad has returned it because of other issues. I think I'm getting the 6s now

    Was it shipped and sold by Amazon, or sold by a third party on Amazon?

    Take a screen shot just below that screen... It should show shipped /dispatched by and sold by... Please post a screen shot of that. I am guessing it won't say amazon there.

    Exactly. Sold by connected247. I avoid buying from amazon through third party because of fakes and gray market (like this one)
