How can I check Samsung J2 5 7 fake vs. real?

Samsung fake and real. How can I check? Please tell me.


First, check for weight and measurements. Here are the technical specifications for:

Use System Info Droid to gain your specifications from the smartphone and compare them with the specifications above.

Install Smart Switch and Kies 3 to see if your smartphone gets identified. If it does, then you have a real smartphone. If not, then it is fake.

Lastly, you can contact Samsung where you can submit your IMEI code to see if your smartphone is under warranty.

Just wanted to find out if the Samsung j series is a ripoff or clones from the s series?

For example a Samsung j2 vs. a Samsung S7. I've never heard or seen any commercials advertising a Samsung j2 or another number, only the s3-8. I've seen people trying to sell these versions, but I'm only familiar with the Samsung S6 or S7 or s8, never seen or heard of a j2 before.
