Small time the Govt will raise the fee for importation of tokunbo phones to encourage local manufacturers

and for your information, am not here to have any tough arguements when i bought my S3 years ago i have a month warranty some company who sells uk used phone give 7 days warranty.

Naaaàaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! ! Dat ain't warranty.

youngbilly1: I wonder whats wrong with some nigerian you tell them something they talk another trash, i said even the brand new that are sold in ikeja some of it are fake!the real and clone are sold for the same price at ikeja. ANYONE WHO WANNA BUY A SAMSUNG PHONE GOTO THEIR DEALER AND GET IT, we are all learned here goto youtube watch the comparism, lately i got to know even apple product have their fake one just gotta be careful getting a smart phone now. Samsung is made in korean but some unlicenced people make a clone and resell to people. Same with apple product not all component of an iphones was made in america,some were made in asia and i "guess" samsung company dose some of there part probably the screen. Am done talking anybody who wanna yield to advice should yield any mr or mrs knowall can take their smartass to get a fake. Happy nu year.

Young man, you need to calm. No one is criticizing you on the information you provided.

You mentioned and I quote that some of the s4s sold at ikeja are Korean made. Maybe you meant to say Chinese?

Here's the deal. Samsung is a Korean company, there is a Korean variant of the s4 which is LTE only. So maybe you want to clarify that first?

We all know that there are knock offs of every product everywhere and that is why I asked you for pictures so that we can try to identify the

Difference btw the original and the fake. Nairaland is a sharing forum. If you have info, share it to create awareness. Sorry if I came off skeptic.

Always buy your Samsung products from their offices scattered all states in Nigeria. I bought my Samsung galaxy 10.1 at their office and it's still performing wonderfully well.

Pls i got this samsung galaxy s4 this morning, not brand new but "London-used". The issue i have is the phone is stocked on 2G as when i go to Settings>>mobile-networks, it will not change from "gsm only" to WCDMA or GSM/WCDMA(auto). Kindly assist me cos i have been going up and down google, android forums, youtube etc;and solution that seems to work for others refused to work on mine. I had to fall back on tethering wifi from my galaxy tab just so i can open a web page on the Galaxy S4 with no High BP. I am using Airtel on it and the sim seem to have 3G provisioning cos i tried on two other devices and the "H" sign with arrows pointing up and down was on the screen and the speed was fast. Kindly assist me pls before you guys mourn another nairalander cry cry cry cry (though some who see me as a menace will be happy if i Should "Proof vemuz SOB" undecided). Counting on you sir embarassed
That was how it started this morning like a joke but ended up i was screwed. Find step by step surgery some NL guru ask me to do and how it turned out.

youngbilly1: 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.

Cheers.
but can it browse and collect bbm and co and when tecno and gionee dey wetin u dey disturb urself 4.

total BS they don't look the same i have seen numerous fakes and from far they similar but after being close its totally obvious, maybe you're not a phone person, that's like texazpete falling for a fake Samsung phone. look at the name the shape and the operating system in it.

Hmmm!!!
When it comes to Android, only ones who knows what to look out for would fish d original. Camera Resolution, Memory and Some stock apps can help you fish it out.

For someone asking how London Used Phone can better New...
An inported London used Phone would last than the New shipped into Nigeria cos it said they manufacture device to best standard if ita to be sold in their country, which means you can neva compare it to the ones Manufactured to be brought to Nigeria.
For example.. A london used AT&T branded Phone would last longer than a New one.

@Jereyz Samsung has the most clones because its the device in town and the china peeps know people are rushing to have one.
If Tecno wasnt from China, there would have been millions of the clone cos they know say naija peeps fo larimo like mad

Etc
