Hi!

Brand new to the group so I thought I'd say hi and ask this question.

You see, I have this problem with my SM-N910 (Galaxy Note 4 for N.A.) That I'd recently purchased here in Canada. Works just fine until suddenly, problems popped up. so I thought doing a factory reset would help solve the problem. Only to realize that, it made it somewhat worst. Because it went to being a Note 4 for Canada (N910) to a Note 4 for China (N9100), Plus it didn't help that now the Boot-Up screen went from showing that it's a "Samsung Galaxy Note 4 powered by Android" with Samsung logo showing up afterwards, to just "Android", with the Android logo showing up afterwards. Is there anyway of fixing this? Any and all advice would be definitely appreciated! Thanks in return!

1. Are you sure the device is genuine? download Samsung Info app from playstore.
2. If it was rooted with custom ROM/Kernel etc perhaps you need to re-flash original OS or kernel?

Can you pass the booting process?
If you can, install CPU-Z & run it then post the screenshot here.
It is likely that you bought a counterfeit device.

GO to CPU-Z/SOC and take a screenshot of it(palm swipe your screen or hold down volume down+home key or use air command/screen write to take a screenshot...).I have a feeling that it may be a fake.There are many things wrong with it lol:screen size is totally wrong it should be 5.71 inches, resolution 1440x2560,RAM should be around 2700

Lol. It's a fake one. It has an MTK processor. It has only 16 gigs installed. It has dpi of 480 instead of 640 the genuine has.
It only has a FHD screen.
I need to say no more

Return it to the seller & ask for a refund!
Original Samsung Galaxy Note 4 always has Exynos/Qualcomm Snapdragon processor & QHD/2K screen resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels) with ~515 ppi pixel density.
Your unit has MT6572 - MediaTek processor, HD screen resolution (1080x1920) with 480ppi & it means it is a FAKE/Clone.
The real SM-N9100 has 16GB internal memory, but the CPU is NOT mediatek and the screen resolution is still QHD.
It suppose to be a cheap Note 4 clone for low end market.
