Not sure how effected my phone is, I have 21 days to get an exchange/refund from the store I bought it from so I will give it another week.
Do you think it would just be safer to get an exchange now or just give my phone the benefit of the doubt?
Hi I'm also from the UK with the same problem unfortunately! However I have tried every possible thing and still get the error so it is definitely a hardware fault. I have booked a repair in with o2.
I have tripped the Knox flag due to rooting and using a custom recovery... I did mention that to the o2 guy but he didn't really seem to understand. Hopefully it will still get repaired?!!!
My model is the SM-G900F so this issue is obviously more widespread then just the US Sprint variants
And to answer your question, I would definitely get it replaced. The error on mine literally just appeared out of no where, so there is a good chance yours could come back and not go away like mine.
