    What's that yellow dot light above the samsung logo of this s7 edge ?-s7-edge-2.png
    I'm trying to buy an S7 edge with 64GB (very rare) on ebay and I happened to get on this one. I know I am a bit of a paranoid but does anyone have an idea of what can be that yellow dot light above the samsung logo on the left on the front camera ? I asked the seller and he said he looks like an internal microphone

    Is this the US version? Or the international version?

    I would Google the international S7E images and compare it to what you have see if it matches. The US version has a different exterior design cues.

    Thanks a lot that's why I was worried because the phone design is totally different from the US version, even this phone home button seems to be framed with a grey metal while the US version isn't

    I've a black unlocked European one and there's no yellow dot and the home button frame is black. It's only a 32GB though so I'm not sure if they did something different with the 64. I didn't even know there was a 64.

    I got a black international dual sim version. Mine doesn't have that. Looks like a flash of some sort.

    The more I look at it, the more it looks like it's on the plastic protector and not the phone.

    Looking at it, the font for the S7 Edge text is different. The black S7 Edge also do not have a border on the home button.

    Yeah I never noticed that. The regular boot font is completely different.

    It's close enough to escape casual scrutiny though. The normal font is just a bit bolder and seems to have closer spacing.

    YouTube it. There are plenty of videos on this issue. Fake SAMSUNG phones are everywhere.

    The home button is fake. There is no chrome frame on the home button of the original S7. The screen to bezel ratio is wrong. Look at the space between the home button and where the screen starts. The side rails are fake. That's almost silver while the original has dark gray rails. It's a flat display showing the S7 edge branding.

    It's just fake. Do not buy this please. Report it! For others safety.

    Even the camera is not in the right position. It's further right than mine if you compare the distance to the speaker.
