How to check whether my Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is a clone or real?


Thankfully, since your Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is a part of the Samsung Galaxy line of Android smartphones, you can use the steps laid out in the fantastic VisiHow article below to determine whether your phone is a clone or if it's a real, genuine Samsung product. If you don't notice any physical differences or abnormalities, you will want to try the codes that we list in the article. We'll list them here for you again since they are very important:

If these codes work, your device is likely genuine. If not, your device may be fake. Call Samsung's customer service line and give them your IMEI and serial numbers. If they find your device in their systems, you're good to go: your device is genuine. If they don't, you unfortunately have a cloned device on your hands. Give the Samsung customer service representative as many details as you can so the company can take the proper legal steps to take the clone down.
