You likely have a model from mainland China.

The easiest away around this is to install the Amazon app store and use their store.

• go to Settings --> Security -->  enable Apps from Unknown Sources.

• download amazon app store from https://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/get/android/ref=get_appstore?ie=UTF8&ref_=mas_rw_ldg

• use the samsung file manager and install this apk

Otherwise, here is how to get Google Play Store.

• go to Settings --> Security -->  enable Apps from Unknown Sources.

• download http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-account-manager/google-account-manager-5-1-1743759-release/google-account-manager-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

• download http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-services/google-play-services-10-0-84-release/google-play-services-10-0-84-230-137749526-android-apk-download/

• download http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-services-framework/google-services-framework-5-1-1743759-release/google-services-framework-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

• download http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-store/google-play-store-7-5-08-m-all-0-pr-146162341-release/google-play-store-7-5-08-m-all-0-pr-146162341-android-apk-download/

To download each APK file, just click on the link, and then scroll down where you’ll see '''Download APK'''. Click that.

Install the above 4 files with  the Samsung file manager in the following order:

Google Account Manager APK   → Google Services Framework APK  →  Google Play Services APK  →  Google Play Store APK

You should see the play store on the home screen now.

All you have to do now is just tap on your new Google Play Store app, and sign in with your Google account.

You may find that it might not work at first, but it will be alright after you’ve signed in.
