According to this Link [theregister.co.uk], you may be eligible for $10 if you have owned Samsung Galaxy S4.

As per link, The case was brought back in 2014 when testers revealed that Samsung appeared to be cheating on benchmark tests – frequently used to compare the speeds of different phones in reviews – by adding source code that detected whether a benchmarking app was running on the phone, and if so, ran the phone at a faster speed (532MHz rather than 480MHz).

Follow the link for further instructions. $10 is not too much, but atleast something better than Nothing.

For the 10 million people in the US who purchased a Galaxy S4, an email should be hitting your inbox soon allowing you to claim your $10 of the settlement.
That assumes when you purchased the phone you handed over your email address and still use the same address.
If you didn't or don't, then apparently purchasing the USA Today on Mondays is recommended as the details will eventually appear in the paper's Legal Notices or Money section.

All Chinese companies do this all the time, for that matter... But don't tell that to BBK shills who still insist OnePlus is a start-up instead of being a front for one of the biggest cell phone manufacturers in the world, BBK (Vivo, OPPO, OnePlus) fronted by Liu "Pete Lau" Zuohu

I bought a new one off of ebay last year actually. Good phone and good price. Removable battery! Looks like I can't get the money because they were going to automatically email people and I got it off of ebay?

My S4 served me well. It was the last flagship phone I purchased ($199 new). Upgraded memory, swappable battery and an Otterbox case that kept it minty fresh! The only reason I upgraded was I couldn't find "real" batteries for it. I still have it and it runs great, just "new" battery dies after 4 hours of standby. My wife and kids have had the S5,S6,S8 and now S9. All of them so expensive and super fragile.
