Seems genuine. Judging by your CSC code you are running South African firmware which, incidentally, is eligible for an upgrade to ICS, Android 4.0.4. See posts #1 and #2 in my link.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums ger08!

Have you got a link to the site that is offering this phone for sale?

My first reaction from those two images is that they are not of the same phone. The second image does not look like a Samsung Galaxy S2, GT-i9100.

The first thing you can do is check out if the specifications, shown by the seller, match those of a genuine Galaxy S2, shown, here. Particularly the internal memory, which should be 16GB and not, say, 170MB as in this thread, here.

Because there are so many different versions of the Samsung Galaxy S2 that are sold, worldwide, it is not always possible to say from a photograph alone, if a phone is genuine or not.

Unfortunately, in the last few months, there seems to have been an upsurge in Galaxy S2 clone phones.

My advice would be to proceed cautiously as you seem to have doubts about the authenticity of this product anyway and I think you have every reason to be dubious judging from what little information is contained in those photographs.

Hope this helps.

I would be very concerned with that. The model number for the Galaxy S3 is i9300, the i9250 is the Galaxy Nexus. And the boot animation in the image you posted is not what is shown on stock S3's. Take a look at this video and you can see what a S3 looks like when it boots.

My guess is that its a fake. Everything about it in the specs looks wrong.

1. As mentioned by lunatic59 the model number is wrong ( looks like an S2, says it is an S3 and has the model number of a Galaxy Nexus).
2. Screen size does not match any of the above devices (someone please correct me if I have that wrong).
3. States it has Android 2.3. Only the S2 of the possibilities from above was released on Gingerbread.
4. Says 128MB internal memory. None of the above come with less than 8GB memory (and I'm pretty sure they all have 16GB+
5. Says it is dual sim. Pretty sure there isn't a regional variant of any of the phones that is dual sim.
6. "Soft Touch, Resisitive, Capacitive and Responsive Touchscreen" is just gibberish.
7. Some preinstalled apps are not standard on Samsung phones (eg ES FIle Explorer and task manager).

My advice is to steer well clear.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums rschotia1958!

I am afraid it is good news, bad news, time...

The bad news is that your phone is not a genuine Samsung Galaxy S2.





The good news is that it appears to be a genuine Samsung Galaxy SL.

For more details, see the Galaxy SL section of Android Forums, here.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums kharmaj_1415!

I'm afraid that with less than 1GB of internal memory that the phone is not a genuine Samsung Galaxy S2. Also the fact that the, "Version", is not coming up when you enter *#1234# on your phone, is a strong indication that you have a, "clone", phone as this is standard on a stock, un-customised, firmware.

See, also, this thread with screenshots...

Is my GT-I9100 genuine?

Hello and welcome to Android Forums lyann89!

I am afraid to say that if a Samsung Service Centre are telling you that your phone is a fake then it is, as they should know.

Samsung is a South Korean company and most of their phones, if not all, say, "Made in Korea by Samsung".

All you can try and do is seek a refund from wherever you bought it.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums charlaobr!

If you mean the difference between a genuine Samsung Galaxy S2, GT-i9100, International and a genuine Samsung Galaxy S2, South Korean variant, M250K/L/S, there are a number of specification differences, including...

"All of variants optimized for use with South Korean wireless carriers have Samsung's Korean input system for feature phones, a Dubeolsik-layout virtual keyboard and a T-DMB tuner in place of an FM radio tuner."

... as shown, here.

However, this thread is chiefly concerned with the influx of, "clone", or fake Galaxy S2 phones that have appeared and how to tell the difference between a genuine Samsung Galaxy S2 and a fake. See also, "Is my GT-I9100 genuine?".

Default Samsung galaxy s2 hd lte korean version

Good day everyone.

I'm planning to buy a second hand phone. But I'm really confused if it's a clone or really a korean version like what the seller is saying.
This is the seller's ad:
TipidCP.com | Galaxy s2 HD LTE

she included pictures of the phone.
She also said that if the samsung has the LCD TEST it means that it is original. Is it true?
And it is in english because it is in the english rom.
I've been googling about the difference between the clone ones and the original ones.
I'm not really knowledgeable with this. Please enlighten me about this. Thank you very much

It is not the Samsung Galaxy S2, GT-i9100 or the G, M, P or T variants. From the screenshots it looks as though it has been rooted and running a custom ROM, (possibly in an attempt to use it outside of Korea), and the model version, SHV-E120S, would indicate that it is indeed the Korean LTE variant of the Galaxy S2, as shown here. IMHO, unless you are going to use this in Korea, its usage may be limited as indeed would support also be.

Yes Indeed it is the samsung galaxy s2 hd lte version. And she said that it is already rooted and running a custom rom. So that we can use it here in the philippines. By the way thank you for your answer mr. ironass. But I do have a last question. Can I ask if it's a good thing or bad, the rooted thing? Thanks!

Being rooted means that you will not be able to update via the Samsung Pc Suite, Kies, or OTA, Over The Air, so you are stuck on that custom ROM unless you learn how to flash ROM's and operate the conversion procedure to enable them to run on that model of phone. Also, be aware that the baseband, sometimes called modem or radio, may or may not be compatible with your network in the Philippines.

Update The item appears to have been withdrawn from the previous link!

Not sure if this has been solved or not, but Samsung is a Korean company. It's unlikely the device is fake.

Hello and welcome to Android Forums Kagura680!

The firmware you mention is the old Gingerbread, Android 2.3.5, Nordic Countries release from October 2011. It does seem odd that it has not been updated since via Kies.

This could be either for the reasons shown in #1.5 and #1.6 of the Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide, in which case you can flash the latest JB firmware manually using Odin and the instructions in #1.7 of that guide.

Alternatively, your phone could be a Korean variant such as an SHW-M250/S/K/L that has had a diferent firmware flashed to it. Check the sticker underneath the battery for a model number.

The SD card slot for the GT-i9100 is shown in this video...

The battery could just be a replacement by the original owner/s.

Just 1 small problem with your suggestion... Not all phones that Kies does not recognise will be fakes. There are numerous posts on these forums which show that Kies does not recognise genuine Samsung phones.
