Ad

Much like with the rest of Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones, you can easily find out whether your Samsung Galaxy Note3 is a genuine Samsung product or if it's a clone made by somebody else. There are a number of great, helpful tips in the VisiHow article below that you will want to follow in order to determine whether or not your Samsung Galaxy Note3 is a genuine Samsung product or not. In addition, be sure to enter the following codes into your phone's Phone application:

After you've entered these codes, you should get messages on your phone. This means your phone is very likely genuine. Next, to make sure your phone is genuine, download and install Samsung Kies 3 and plug your phone into your computer once it's installed. If Kies recognizes your phone, it is very likely genuine. If not, it's very likely a fake device. To completely be sure that your device is a fake, contact Samsung's customer support line and speak to a customer service representative. They will then ask for your IMEI and serial numbers. They will search Samsung's systems for the numbers, and if they find them, it means your phone is genuine. If not, you unfortunately have a fake device.
