FAKE Samsung Galaxy S4 Is All Over Ikeja....don't Be SCAMMED!!! by youngbilly1: 3:53pm On Dec 31, 2013
Am suprised no one or company is to be trusted in Nigeria, a friend of mine was at ikeja and bought a used Samsung S4 at Affordables Phone,i gave him my trust about the company but to my suprised they sold him fake korea S4 for N65k. On getting there for a refund we couldn't get a refund but we picked another phone.

Where am driving at is when we checked other stores for the New Samsung S4 it was the same korea Version so we moved to SLOT, we got to slot check the phone out it was original in the display cool! on getting home charging and turning it on it turned out to be a korea version WTF! We complain and they changed it for us. I wanna let everyone here know how to spot a fake S4 and the Original, pls don't be deceived by anyone, both the fake and real looks alike software wise and hardware wise and even the pack.

How to spot a fake S4
1. The camera has a poor quality, when you check the pixel it stops at 8mega pixel while the original is 13mega pixel.

2. The fake has Voice Search instead of S Voice

3. The memory of the fake S4 is 1.8gb instead of 16gb like the original.

4. The screen resolution is poor.

5. If you are buying a used S4 goto samsung office and see the features and resolution of the S4 then you can compare what you're buying when you get to computer village.

Pls goto page 4 and 5 for Videos and Pictures to compare both the Fake and Original.

NOTE: they're not Variant, they're FAKE/COPY/CLONE/BAD/EVIL!! smiley wicked people sells them same price with the original 90k, but people who know's the right thing tells costumer its fake before they sell. God bless

You purchased an item of over 90k+ for: 65k. And you think the discount came from heaven.

The only issue is that they should have told you point blank: Option 1 vs Option 2.

Choose the right data product: http://www.paykobo.com/connected

Pick up original from Samsung with 12 months warranty here: http://www.paykobo.com/samsung-i9500-galaxy-s4-16gb-black.html

Mr man, i deal with phones, i can tell you point blank not everyone can afford a brand new smart phone, and sometimes a uk used last longer than a brand new. For example i bought the uk used S3 for 83k when S3 first came out for 90 + it was quiet expensive, till today its functioning fine, i have colleagues of mine who bought brand new S3 of recent when the price fell,they complain of one issues or the other. So not everyone can afford a brand new thats why its called USED!so there's nothing like discount,you just gotta be smart when buying a used phone. Same with cars people rather buy tokunbo.

Sir, I totally disagree with u. How on God's earth would u dare to say 'sometyms a used lasts longer than new' ? On what f&*ing basis?

Any phone you buy depends on the way u use it.

answer this cheap question. Does a used phone have warranty?

oga, you can always demand for an exchange if your brand new has manufacturing defaults.

Isn't Samsung a korean company. What is with the "fake" korean remarks?

Or are there now two Samsung companies in Korea, one real and one fake?

My guy, the fake Samsung you bought isn't from Korea but China.

Next time, learn how to read phone specs properly to even understand what you are attempting to buy.

I don't know about Nigeria but all mobile phone retailers always have an exemplar of the phones they sell on display for customers so that they can go through it before purchasing.

If they display something different from what customers receive in sealed packets, then it's a crime.

This is what you get when you dive cheap articles... One of my colleagues who is always on the lookout for cheap articles once dived an iphone 4 for 20k. He was so happy about cheating the seller until unlocking time reach. We found out that the iphone is locked to one very rare network that the unlock is not even offered online. He is now a very proud owner of a very useless iphone.
