    i know there has been a couple of threads concerning this problem. but i have already read all of the threads that i could find. nothing worked.
    i live in china and the chinese version of note 3 doesnt have play store installed. so i had to download the apk from the internet. and installed on the phone. it flashes white and closes immediately. also google play services that i installed from the internet yesterday, failed to open. it flashes black for a while and then (unfortunately google play services has stopped). BTW, my weather widget shows a different city. a city which is a little far from where i live. i tried to let gps and map access my location to refresh my home city, but no success.

    here are the solutions that i found online and have already tried with no success.

    1.Set your correct date and time for the current location. Try this it will work out, and also try to inactivate your play store account and reactivate. (i failed to change my home city in weather widget. the date and time are correct though)

    2-Find " Hideman VPN " and Install . you don't need Play Store you can download this from SAMSUNG Store. And Its Free.
    Now Open Hideman VPN And Click Connect.
    Onces Its Connected Open Internet Explorer And Check Your IP . It Will Be Changed
    Now Open Google Play Store .. It Should work



    3-clear cache and data, then reboot.



    4-Try clearing the data and cache for " Google Services Framework" also (my phone has no google framerowk. no any google service)


    5- Your downloads are probably disabled ...go into your settings then application manager scroll over to all. go all the way to bottom you should see downloads click enable. thats what i did works good now.



    ............none of the above has worked..................
    is there anything else i could do? my doubt is that samsung china has disabled something about google or there is a built in app that keeps my home city incorrect. im not sure. i hope to get it to work. andriod is useless without google play.
    thanks in advance

    China is known to block a lot of things. Have you tried downloading apps from Amazon?
