It is somewhat unusual, but it can happen: you buy a phone and you finish giving you account that is false. Imitations exist in many products and telephony is no exception, so you would not be the first to fall into the trap if you get one of these surprises.
Let’s see How to detect this type of counterfeiting, that you may give us a scare to make us buy a completely different to the original device. Although outside it can seem identical at first glance, these are the keys that can make us suspect.
Buying from China: clones
Of course we talked about here manufacturers coming from china and try to compete with the rest of equals. In general all phones ranges high come with imitations from other manufacturers of Chinese origin who are dedicated exclusively to that. A couple of well-known names are Goophone (coming to launch imitations before the products reach the market) or Feiteng.
Worse, what we can find, in general, when browsing websites of origin Chinese are another type of made imitations to result in deception. In many cases the name is not clear. ‘GT-N9006’ seems like a version of the Note 3, which has a similar designation (GT-N9005 for the model sold in Europe). The reality is that it’s a version of very less features, and like this appear whenever lands a new high-end.
Therefore, we must be cautious, often these phones are sold in similar appearance specifications (screen 5.7 “Quad Core 3 G), and manage to get close enough aesthetically to the original product if we don’t have it on the side to contrast.
But as you can guess not had a phone that cost to manufacture a bit to sell for less than that amount. The Bill’s components is reduced out to tail.
Where can more quickly note is in the devices screen, which in the case of the Amoled is obvious (the LCD that replaced them tend to be of very poor quality). Of course, in its interior, introducing low-end MediaTek chips or even faking the software section, saying carrying a version of Android that does not include.
Be cautious of a who buy you and beware of ‘too good’ offerings
But sometimes there is who emerges from these phones on the second hand market, and tries to pass them by the original phones. In fact, we should avoid, or at least assume, this type of vendors and shops without warranties or possibility of return.
As in almost everything, common sense commands, and it is better to be careful if we do not want to fall into the trap. As we know, nobody gives ‘hard pesetas’. If they sell us the last HTC and suspiciously close to weigh half a kilo, or you have a touch different, more errors than normal batteries, more small (miniaturization is difficult and somebody does, to keep the exterior size we can get to see closer batteries) or processors that do not measure, suspect.
The best here if we suspect is having a phone identical to that we want to buy to measure them face to face. If it seems to us that a phone may not be the original, is that probably it is not. It doesn’t matter that they are trying us to sell a box and original invoice, if the phone is not.
Some of the fakes adultery even specifications that have the device. In such a way that we can know easily which is the processor’s phone, even though we look at applications like CPU-Z, Antutu or other applications of Benchmarking.
Check the IMEI
But in the worst case, assuming that we have already done with one of these phones, always we have fire proof: check the IMEI. The IMEI (identity international mobile equipment, for its acronym in English), the something like passport of these devices. This code is unique, and each phone is listed with one of these successions of 15 numbers.
Often we can find this number in purchase invoices, Terminal or in the same boxes. Push in the phone application * #06 #, should appear. Carry it forged or counterfeit phones without IMEI.
To check this, we can be useful check any online database. And as always, if we are wrong, probably we are not the first naive all over Internet. Googling can help us find similar cases with details that can come to us very well when it comes to anticipate such situations.
