The retailer should provide receipt and stamped warranty card with Date Of purchase mentioned,the service warranty should be Samsung Official.
Install CPU-Z from playstore to verify the hardware (EXYNOS for I9500 and Qualcomm 600 for I9505).
Verify the IMEI number on box and in phone (removing battery/ asterisk hash 06 hash).
Should be running 4.3 or above firmware! Etc..

@FOR earlier post:
Moving Apps to internal memory will slow down the Phone terribly. The internal memory should be vacant as much as possible, up to 6GB is possible! This enables caching and hence performance improvements!

I m facing 2 prominent issues. the first most critical is my phone is charging really really slow. like my battery became 12% remainig .. i checked it after 4 hrs. it was 78% last night. when ever i m charing it is charging very slow.. i dont know what is wrong my phone is 2 weeks old. another is fast battery drain. like half a day my phone is in standby mode. i keep my phone at home now days.. when i come back home it is 64% remaining. and temperature of my device used to stay 28C when not in use. or 30 normally. now my phone on standby remains 32C to 34C. PLease let me know if there is any solution.

dan, 05 Apr 2014What are the security features on the s4 can I look out for to get a genuine phone thank uThere's no security features in S4. Just buy from an authentic store / online retailer, you will be safe.
This is a pretty moot question to be honest, unless where you live there are plenty of fakes available easily!
RRI, 06 Apr 2014Im using s4, how can i record incoming & outgoing voice,There is an app called ACR (All Call Recorder) in Play, which I have been using for past three months, and for Free I don't think there's any better available.
nasir la, 06 Apr 2014Why my batteries very fast lowDo you understand your own comment?
Arey yaar we have told it many times here! Download the whole bloody ROM from sammobile. Flash it via Odin. How hard is that mate?
Swapnil, 06 Apr 2014Hey Guys,
Plz tell me that, after updating my s4 to kitkat, is it possible to move apps to sd... moreyes sure .. why have you NOT tried yet ? kitkat drains the battery very fast - over heats s4 - fix 443 awaited desparately .. shifting apps to sd card ought to least of your problems .. s4 has plenty internal phone storage for apps anyway ..btw- APPS work better faster when in internal storage of s4 ..
apps manager > copy all apps to s4 internal storage and SEE .. encrypt your microsd card - install ultrafast samsung micro sd card -64gb - for photoes music perosnal media files apps games videos films =MAGIC !
