Since the Samsung Galaxy Note3 is a part of the Samsung Galaxy line, you can use any of the steps in the great VisiHow article below to determine whether or not your Galaxy Note3 is indeed a real Samsung Galaxy phone. One of the easiest, fastest, and most reliable ways to determine whether your phone is genuine is to enter the Samsung-specific codes in the article; since they're so important, we'll list them here again for you:

If these codes work for you, your phone is very likely genuine. If they don't work, you should call Samsung's customer service line and give them your IMEI and serial numbers. If the customer service representative finds your numbers in Samsung's systems, you're in luck: your phone is genuine. If they don't, however, your device is unfortunately fake.
