S3 mini how can I use to check if its real.

The easiest way would be to go to "Settings" and then tap "About phone." This will let you see the specs of your device, which you can then compare to the specs your S3 mini is supposed to have. You could also check a photo of the S3 Mini on Samsung's website, and then compare the image to your device. Take note of any obvious differences. If they're glaring, chances are the device not genuine.
