The easiest way to tell if any iPhone, including the iPhone 5S, and even the newest iPhone 6, is to use the tool linked in our main guide, in Step 5.

You can easily check the serial number of the iPhone online, by following the steps listed earlier in this VisiHow Q&A guide. Alternatively, you can use other methods. The easiest methods are to check the quality and workmanship of the iPhone 5S you are considering purchasing. Check the screws, which should be of the pentalobe type (five points), instead of the usual four points other phones have. Also look for the Apple logo, and check the feel of the phone. The iPhone 5S is a flagship device, and it shows in the workmanship. There is very little space around the buttons on the side of the phone. They are all well constructed, and made of metal. For more tips, please reference the full article.

Getting confused whether to buy an iPhone 5S from www.paytm.com or not?

I am very confused whether should I go on to buy an iPhone 5S from www.paytm.com? How do I know whether the iPhone they are selling is an original one or a fake one? They are giving only 5-days Replacement warranty. Should I buy it from them? Their price is the best one that is why I am more inclined to buy it from them and my budget also falls in their offering. Please guide.

iPhone 5S at PhP 8,800? Is it real or fake?

I saw an AD in a buy & sell site called olx.ph saying that he sells iPhone 5S 32GB for 8,800 Philippine pesos. Should I buy it? What is the usual price of iPhone 5S? Others sell from around 11k and I also saw 2 sellers for 8k

If you are speaking about a new iPhone 5S that is not locked to any carrier, then this sounds like at least half the price (16,000-39,000 should be the price). However, it can be a used (refurbished), locked, or fake smartphone, in which case the price should be all right. Personally, I would contact the seller before buying anything even at 11,000 PHP.
