HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR PHONE IS ORIGINAL OR FAKE

purchasing a used or low-priced branded phones might be risky because cell phones nowadays, especially high-priced  models, can also be copied. Some called them “fake” or “Original” Because originals and fake cell phones sometimes look so similar , you cannot identify them by just checking the materials used on the phone, but even then, there’s always a difference. If you know what to look for, you can check if your phone is an original or not.
  



METHOD 1

Check the Specifications  and Software Used


1.Check the specification on the box

  • You can find the device specification on the back of the box of the phone. 

Compare it with your phone  by going to Settings = About phone. 
If the specifications don’t match, it’s possible your phone is  fake.


  • Just in case  the box is lost , the entire  specs are accessible  to view online on GSMArena or in its official website too.

  •  To check your  phone’s specification, search and download Antutu Benchmark from Google Play.


  •   It will let you test your device’s speed and detect your device’s name  and  the full specification of your phone.
  • If in case it  displays another phone’s manufacturer’s name, then your phone might be fake.

    Verifying the IMEI and Serial Number
      1.Checking your phone’s IMEI

      For Android and other phones, the IMEI can be located on the back of your phone. If the sticker has been destroyed, you can find it in Settings > About > Status.

      • You can also dial *#06# on your phone to display your IMEI.
      • Once you get the IMEI, Check it here. Input your phone’s IMEI in the box and hit “CHECK.”
