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:

  • SW Version, PDA, CSC and Modem - *#1234#
  • SW & HW Info - *#12580369#
  • Test mode - *#0*#
  • Service Mode - *#197328640#
  • ADC Reading - *#0228#
  • Bluetooth Test Mode - *#232331#
  • Bluetooth Address - *#232337#

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.

I don't know if my Note4 is original or fake. Please help?

Hello, I got a Samsung phone through a website. The box said SMN901 which made me feel the phone is not original.

I checked the back of the phone to see if it said made by Samsung but NO. When I checked the model number written inside the phone it said SMN901F which is European model. I tried to check for an update but it said something about the software not being original or something and asked me to check for updates using Samsung Kies. When I installed Kies and tried to connect my phone to the computer it didn't work meaning the computer couldn't recognize that a device was connected but the phone was charging. When I tried taking photos they came out as grainy and after some time the app stopped working. Now when I open the camera it says operation failed. The look and the feel of the hardware is so premium and touch-wiz looks so real, I don't know if it is real or fake. Please help. Thanks
