Yes there is a forum, look in Android development and hacking.

Hey, I've recently bought a fake Galaxy S4, from someone who pretended the phone was genuine.

The phone works really good, and has many features of the genuine phone, the phone has only one issue, the phone battery indicator is not very accurate.

If I charge the phone to 100%, I use it normally and the battery decreases normally untill 70-60 and it suddenly drops to 15%.

The phone has root and I've calibrated the battery twice, but no result so far. What can I do?

You can buy products in Vietnam or you can see "Vietnam" underneath the battery cover, however, you should believe that China has produced it. The official Samsung products are manufactured in Vietnam (Product made in Vietnam by Samsung) and China knows it.

i already sold mine. hehe. and stated that it is fake. im telling you, based on experience it can go toe to toe to some 2011 flagship phones. and when i compare it to the original its totally identical.
