How can I prove that my Sony Xperia z5 is original?

Hello, I would like you to show me a way to prove that my Sony Xperia z5 is an original smart phone?

Do a version check in About Phone. You will see Lollipop or Marshmallow installed so should state 5.1.1 or higher but the clones run Kitkat 4.4.2 or lower. The clone also only has a 5-inch screen and only one speaker is functional. The camera quality is also extremely poor. The logo will be distorted as well.

The original Sony Xperia Z5 has a 23 mega pixel camera with auto focus. It is waterproof to a point and you can take it in the shower or water while swimming as long as you wipe off the phone when you get out. There is also a fingerprint function on the Power/Sleep button on the side. It also records in 4K video. It is completely wrapped in aluminum with a frosted glass back cover.

Thank you, my problem is how can I identify my Sony Z5 premium is original or fake?

I Bought a Sony Xperia Z5 premium from local shop day before yesterday and as per the specification the manufacturer says that this phone has 23 MP camera. I felt that My ZTC Desire Eye 13 MP is better than my new Sony Z5. So I would like to check whether the phone is original or not!
