    Well firstly, can you upload a picture of what's written under the battery, a screen shot of the about device section and for good measure, type *#1234# in your dialer and take a screen shot of it :)

    But I hate to say, that if it's the 9500 and it doesn't have air gesture etc...I think it's a fake, but then you got it in the black market so you should know this already!

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums tegil20! :)

    From your PM to me, I know that you are from Indonesia and the term, "Black Market", I believe, has a slightly different meaning to the European usage.

    sntaylor is quite right in saying that if you are unsure of your phone you should check the white sticker underneath the battery as well as typing in


    into the dial pad which should give you the Version details.

    You can also go to Settings > More > About device... and check the details under, Model number, Baseband version and Build number.

    Below are 2 links for the Galaxy S4, i9500, User Manuals, that may help you.
