I guess twas Made in China. Lol! But I believe Samsung never hired Foxconn to do the job. But then again, I might be proved wrong.

Made in Korea Made in China Made in Vietnam Made in India Made in Malaysia It doesn't long as the phone works, who cares anyways? In fact, we need to thank to those workers who made the device and appreciate it, not being sissy tards like "'s made in China...Oooh no.".

Sissy? I would categorize it as xenophobic or borderline racist. All in all, the ones who speak negatively about Chinese-made products (and Communism in general) are most likely the biggest hypocrites in the world. If they hate China and Communism so much, stop supporting it. Get rid of all your computers, electronics, phones, clothes, furniture, appliances, and everything else. In fact, stop buying anything that was imported or shipped in a freight container. Those containers are all made in China.

It doesn't matter where it made. We all know as a fact the best electronics come from Asian countries. Even Intel makes many of its chips in Malaysia and Singapore, as does everyone. Even though most of the Asian cultures don't like each other, money is a communicable language that can be agreed upon by all for the right price. Foxconn is chosen by most PC suppliers and some phone suppliers due to the fact they have the most factories available for assembling components.

The entire reason companies started making a massive shift for production in Asia, was because of the cheap labor. It wasn't because of some belief that Asia was this bastion of technological prowess. Any other claims are purely revisionist history.

Cheap raw materials and low tax. I doubt anyone thinks that Asia is the bastion of technological prowess, one may single out Japan though.

Exynos Note 4 made in Vietnam on the 24th February 2015. :) Wow, it even keeps logs of how many times the headset, charger and S Pen have been inserted/detached.

And my S4 was manufactured only 8 days before I got it.

Just installed this. Says that headphones were connected 3 times to my GS5, which I never did. Maybe during the testing process at the factory? Either that or the AT&T store sold me a used phone as "new".

All this but it doesn't tell you how many cycles your battery has done.

Someone always has to complain about something. Please tell us all what manufacturer will even give you access to any of this info. Go on. I'm waiting.

Doesn't show the country of origin on my Verizon Galaxy S4. Does show a manufacture date of Apr 19, 2014. I got the device first week of June, 2014.
