I noticed that my galaxy s4 gt-i9505 display isn't as good as other s4's. I have compared it with others and mine isn't as bright and the colours are not as good as others. I have compared them at the lowest, maximum and even the automatic brightness and mine is alot worse.

I didn't notice this problem until i looked at a friends s4 and now it bothers me alot

Does anybody know what the problem might be?

Thanks for your help in advance!

I don't think so. I bought it new from the store. But if it would be a clone how could I check if it is?

Get your phone rooted and install cpu-z from google play. Check if your specs are correct. All the best.

Thanks! I already have root and have checked it now and it was correct but the colours and brightness is still a mistery

Try to set device to "Adapt display" setting and then compare. Or set your device's screen exactly the same way your friends have. But I guess you have already done that...

You can also check IMEI number of your phone on this site:

For my device I'm getting this info:

Type Allocation Holder: Samsung
Mobile Equipment Type: Samsung GT-I9505 Galaxy S4
GSM Implementation Phase: 2/2+
IMEI Validity Assessment: Very likely

Information on range assignment

Est. Date of Range Issuance: Around Q4 2012
Reporting Body: British Approvals Board of Telecommunications (BABT)
Primary Market: Europe
Legal Basis for Allocation: EU R&TTE Directive
