Sorry to hear that, but if it's a fake, you have to get help from that brand model's support team/group. No one here can help you with that because the manufacturer is unknown.

Thankfully ebay offers a warranty.Try to get your money back asap. The thing about a fake s5 is that it's fake. There is no way of knowing what's actually under the hood. They're made to pass the initial quick inspection by someone who's never owned a samsung or even android phone before.
Imagine a pinto with a Ferrari kit on it. Looks legit... but that's about it.
Get rid of it. ASAP.

This! If you paid through Paypal and file a complaint, they will give you your money back if you can prove it is a fake. eBay is really aggressive against people selling fake stuff, so that is a plus!
