    So recently I have gotten the Note 2 (from mainland China. I am in the US). The phone says it is running 4.1.9

    There are a few issues that I have with it.
    1. There are none of the usual Note 2 apps. Like S Note or S Voice. There is no motion setting in the phone settings menu.
    2. The S Pen was not there. Instead there was some cheap stylus. (I might have been ripped off.. I might just buy a new pen)
    3. Google Voice assistant or Google Now is not on there.

    To fix it.. I want to install a different OS, preferably the stock Note 2 one that is offered on the Note 2 phones in the US. How would I go about doing so?
    Thanks. It's my first time posting on here. :)

    Return it if you can before its too late I thinks its a knockoff.. :(

    I highly doubt any of the Android apps will even work on it..

    I've heard of this 4.19 before. Defo a knock off. Return it for refund if you can

    First rule: NEVER trust Chinese sellers unless it's a recognized business.

    I got mine from Expansys and trusted them only because they have a Japanese branch. My phone came in about a week and is the real thing.

    You clearly have been ripped off...

    as the saying goes '' if it sounds to good to be true it probably is'' looks like you'v found out the hard way.. the japs make copies of allmost everyphone. i get copies of iphone 4's for 19 quid. they never say they are suposed to be iphone 4 but look exactly the same..
