How to identify Samsung G531 is original or fake?

I want to buy a Samsung G531, how can I identify the original from the fake one?


  • If you have sliding calipers, then you can measure the device. The measurements should be 144.8 by 72.1 by 8.6 mm. The weight is around 156 grams.
  • Compare the official specifications with yours that can be shown by installing and running System Info Droid.
  • Follow each step in the article. The most reliable method is following the steps in the "Galaxy Phone Authenticity Check Using Samsung Kies" section of the article. You can also install Smart Switch for the same purpose.
  • The price range. The smartphone should be around $165. Something that is sold considerably cheaper should arouse suspicion.
