There is no site from Samsung to tell if a phone is real or cloned, however, you can use Samsung Kies to check. Otherwise, no third party site has the capability of providing this information. This means that you will need to either physically take your Samsung Galaxy S5 into an authorized shop to be certain that it is a genuine Samsung phone. That said, if you would like to confirm that the various components of your phone are authentic, you can use the main article, available by clicking the link at the top of this page, or by following the link at the ed of the article intro provided below. Entering these codes into a phone will allow you to confirm that the components are real, in which case you can surmise that the phone is genuine. Clones don't use the same parts as an original, which is why they cost so much less, and usually have problems or stop working.

Install Phone INFO Samsung onto your smartphone and launch it. Under "Phone model", you will see letters and numbers. For example, you can see "SM-G920F".
