    Is it a new device? If not, is it rooted? So far as I know, the face unlock option was removed by Samsung long ago. Perhaps there are firmware updates pending, that will remove it from your device?

    Your phone is likely to have been rooted which is why the scanner doesn't work. This app will confirm if you are rooted https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ootcheck&hl=en

    the phone is not rooted. however this all seems strange. tried to install smart switch app to install android 5.1.1 manually but the app is not compatible with my phone? also the camera makes really bad pics.

    Hmm Can you post a screenshot of the about device screen? I'd like to see CSC etc. Have a look at this How to spot a fake Galaxy S6 Easy - BlogTechTips

    i installed some hardware checkin apps. they show values not according to samsung s6 e.g. screen resolution 540 x 960 240 dpi. internal ram: 512 mb. cpu 2 cores. i verified this with two different apps. camera 9.6 megapixels. android version 4.4.2
    is it possible that these apps show wrong information?

    How did you find out it was a fake? I also bought my phone second hand and I also have your same concerns, spent $350 so I don't know what to do with the phone as the seller won't reply back to me..
