    Hello,
    So i have bought an S5 Neo (903F) off ebay 2nd hand, with original accessories (like new), as new box containing original paper work (user guide etc) So i am assume this is a genuine "I Have Upgraded Sale".
    The phone came with protective case/covers and looks like it is little used and has been much cared for.

    The phone booted up ok, so i had a quick look to make sure all was working ok and then did a factory reset as did not want to find any old user data that might not have been removed.. (Wife in Shower etc :) )

    After the reset the fone now as expected goes into setup up mode, i have set the language and setup my home WiFi PW and all seems to be fine.
    However it says to enter the original gmail account name and PW, as quick message pops up saying something like due to recent google PW change I think, so quick difficult to read.

    I have had a google about about and found three solution to get past this "Samsung Bypass Google Verify" but none work, can someone help please?

    Solutions tried:
    1. Downloaded samsung bypass google verify.apk, put it on a new OTG drive and inserted into fone, however the file folder does not popup so i can't run the app.

    2. The second try was to enter the setup menu during email address KB entry. This does not work as only the SAMSUNG menu is accessible and there is no three little dot menu to access the main setup.

    3. I have download Dr.Fone PC app but it does not have a S5 Neo device, think this is because is free version or i have missed something.

    Thanks for looking imk

    Call up the original owner. You need his Google credentials.

    Sorry but not practical as he has gone on vacation :-(

    I think where i went wrong was to do the factory reset where i should have deleted the gmail account first then done the reset.

    I have attached photo of box n bits as think this makes fone look NOT stolen and this is a genuine request for help.

    No. The original owner should have deleted his account first.

    Sorry miss understanding.
    I powered up the fone gave it a quick test and it was already setup so i didn't want to find anything on the phone that i didn't want.
    So i did a factory reset, unknown to me was that i needed to delete any google accounts before a reset.

    It's recoverable, but you'll have to wait until the previous owner is contactable again. You can't do this without their password.

    If that S5 Neo and Xcover2 are indicative to what you've been trying out, instead of buying pre-owned phones perhaps you might find your smartphone experience a lot better to buy a new model, without any unknown issues that the previous owners might have left behind.
    It's not necessary to spend a lot to get a flagship model either, there are a number of very good, usable new phones in the under $300 range (carrier unlocked), and if you're willing, well under $100 for carrier-branded.

    svim many thanks for your reply.
    However let me again correct myself.
    The xcover2 was bought new by myself and has worked faultlessly for several years!
    However, it seems to have an issue that numerous users complain about.
    That being that it lacks GB space due to pre-installed apps that CAN NOT be removed.
    Or more to the point if you remove them the next time you connect to the internet the dam phone re-installs them again.

    So as many friends are pestering to get onto What Apps i decide i would give into them and get a phone with more GB's
    And this is where the problem starts as there are only a few phones that fit my requirements, as phones are like cars that have double in size in the past few years..

    So here are my requirements:
    1. Less 145mm long, it fit in my trouser pocket
    2. Has rounded corners, as when in my trouser pocket it not stick in my balls
    3 Has a 5" screen (or close to)
    4. Has decent battery life
    5. Has a removable battery.
    6. Is available in the UK, not grey market import that may have issues
    7. And most importantly IT HAS FM RADIO

    So svim do feel free to find me a phone that fits the above please :)

    Therefore after hours of searching it comes down to the S5 Neo. G903F. Beware the G903W is without FM Radio, i know i had to return one :-(
    Problem is these don't seem to be available in the UK any more.
    As only one i could find is on amazon at £300 and number of reviews seem to indicate it is Grey Import and has update issues:-(

    So as i buy and sell IT on ebay all the time i searched for a S5 Neo that looks little used and was native UK phone and NOT STOLEN.

    However i didn't figure is that somewhere between Google, SAMSUNG and Android.
    Some bloody monkey in an office has decided to brick second hand phones because they MAY have been stolen.
    Therefore causing inconvenience to decent people by making the second hand phone business a pain in the ass.
    But fundamentally failing to deal with real phone thief problem, as still no death penalty in the UK for it :)
    Happy Days

    You don't know if the one who sold it to you stole it from someone. This has been a common enough occurrence that every smartphone that has had a software update since 2015 has this type of locking feature, including iPhones. Phones nowadays contain too many recoverable information to be readily accessible.

    As for your search,

    Using GSMArena's phone finder with the following parameters gives me 33 results:

    Newer than 2016
    145mm height
    16GB minimum internal memory
    5.2 inch screen max
    FM Radio
    at least 2500mah battery that is removable.

    Whether these are available in the UK I have no idea though, as I have no idea where to look into the UK market online.

    https://www.gsmarena.com/results.ph...elected&nBatCapacityMin=2500&idBatRemovable=1

    From that list, the ones I'd look into are:
    Samsung J2 Pro (2018), J3 Pro, J3 (2018)
    Motorola E4, G5, G4 Play, E3 Power
    LG K8.

    Going forward it will be very difficult to find phones with removable batteries. Also, screen size nowadays is a wrong factor in deciding size. For example, the 5.8inch Galaxy S9 is the same size as the 5 inch Google Pixel 2.

    Also an FYI, as FRP is intended as an anti-theft feature, to try and make stolen devices difficult to sell or fence, it's very secure and practically impossible to bypass.

    You post a UK specific question after midnight and when there isn't an answer waiting when you wake you get in a huff? Patience, young padawan. And consider that there are more "busy engineers" here than "bored teenagers", so you can't expect everyone to be at your beck and call.

    It's an anti-theft mechanism that works by making phones less attractive to thieves. If we could tell you how to bypass it then it truly would be useless. You can wait until you can get the password or you can throw your money away, that's your choice, but those are the options. As has already been said, every smartphone sold in the last 4-5 years have had this or something like it (not just android).

    If you are worried about space then buying a phone with sufficient is important. The quoted capacity always includes the space used by operating system etc, so available space is always much less. Pre-installed apps live in a separate partition so removing them wouldn't give you any more, as the partition they are in (different from where your apps go) would not get smaller. If you disable them that removes any data they have stored and any updates to them (both of which do share space with your stuff), which means you recover as much space as you would if you could uninstall them.

    You've already been given a link to phones meeting your specs. Use it or don't, it's up to you. If you relax the "removable battery" constraint you will have a lot more options. And as said, screen diagonal is a poor proxy for size since different display aspect ratios give quite different screen dimensions for the same diagonal, so using length and width is probably better.

    removing the "removable battery" in the advanced phone finder parameter actually bumps up search results to like 199 from 33.

    I had to deal with it with an Oppo R7 and R9 I let go to new homes during the summer. Although with non-Google China phones, the FRP is locked to the phone number and SIM rather than a Google account.

    If don't hurry, wait the owner to give the Google account and password for you, of use the Eelphone Google Account Removal to bypass Google verification without password with all data losing.
