It is common for Android smartphones to have their memory full eventually. On advice how to clean your device, please refer to our tutorial at this location.

Now, besides the steps in the article, please do the following for your Samsung smartphones:

  • install and run System Info Droid onto your smartphone. Compare the results with the technical specifications on Samsung S7 Edge, Samsung A7, or Samsung A7 (2016), depending upon your smartphone;
  • measure the dimensions of and weigh your smartphone and compare the results to the official ones available in the previous bullet point;
  • enter the IMEI code at Samsung Extended Warranty Web page or click "Live chat" to talk with a Samsung representative and pass him your smartphone IMEI to look into your smartphone being real, refurbished, or fake;
  • install Smart Switch or Kies 3.0 onto your computer and connect your smartphone to the computer by using the original USB cable that came with the smartphone. If the smartphone is recognized by either program, then it is not fake.

If you were told that it is "a copy", then it is a clone. If it was just made at a Vietnamese factory, then it can be real. After performing all of the steps in the tutorial, find the model specifications on the Web site of the manufacturer or on http://www.gsmarena.com. Measure and weigh your own smartphone and compare the results. Then, install System Info Droid onto your smartphone and compare the specifications to see if it is a real smartphone.

Sir I have a premium copy of Samsung A8000 Vietnam variant. How can I verify if this fake or not?

How? How can I verify if this fake or not?

If you have purchased a clone then it is most likely manufactured by that premium clone manufacturer. Clones to not clone off anything other than originals. If you really want to know if your phone is a Samsung original then connect the phone to Kies with the PC. If it is a clone then Kies will not recognize the device as a Samsung.

A blue line above appears and I cannot click on there?

No touch inside that line? I cannot find fingerprints here, does it support fingerprints? While typing I cannot touch space due to this, please help me. I have tried: I restarted my phone, it went, again appeared while I charged my phone. I think it was caused by: It appears while charging, it moves like wave while charging and I cannot touch there.
