There are a number of things to look for when purchasing an iPhone 5S to differentiate the real one from a fake. The easiest way to know if you are buying a legitimate Apple product is to buy it directly from Apple or one of its authorized resellers. Another way to tell is to use the steps in the great VisiHow article below to determine whether or not the device you have purchased is legitimate or not. You can also call Apple and give them your IMEI and serial numbers to make sure that the phone is in their systems; if it is, it's a genuine device and if it's not, it's a fake.

Sir, how can I identify the original 5S screen?

I need to identify the original iPhone screen menu.

The easiest part to emulate in a smartphone is the screen menu. However, 5S clones tend to be a bit more choppy or having more lag when swiping the screen left and right, pressing the home button, or scrolling up and down as this emulation requires more precision and processor power. Both clones and real iPhone 5S models have the dock menu and standard application (however, beware if App Store, Photos, Videos, Messages, Calendar, Weather, Clock, Camera, Notes, iBooks, Settings, Tips, Reminders, Watch, Calculator, News, Find iPhone, Voice Memo, Compass, or Maps is missing on the home screen or inside the folders on an updated iPhone. Also, when pulling up and hiding the setting panel from the home screen, there should be no lag between the action and the animation. When pulling down the notification panel from the top, the panel must move swiftly and bounce off the lower part of the screen. It usually does not bounce on a clone phone.
