Is my Galaxy A7 original or fake?

I have Galaxy A7 2016 dual SIM. It has 2 IMEI numbers. Is my Galaxy A7 2016 original or fake? I'm confused right now.

If each SIM card is associated with its own transceiver, then there should be two IMEI numbers. Having two numbers or more does not signify that your device is fake.

To ensure that your device is not fake, compare hardware specifications with System Info Droid, which will show your system specifications, and details on the GSM Arena Web site. You can also use the measurements and weight from the latter Web page.

Also, use the Warranty check Web site to check your IMEI codes.

Then, connect your smartphone with the original USB cable to your computer. Launch Smart Switch, Kies 3, or Kies 2.6 and see if your device gets recognized. If it does, then it is real.

The top answer on this page has excellent info for you to find out if you were duped. The A7 can lag so basing a dupe off just that is not worthy. You will need to regularly use a program app that cleans cache and unused files as well as keep your photo and video galleries to a minimum. Using an app like Purify will help you close down running apps in the background. I use it and discovered that my banking app was using the most drainage in the background. Surprisingly I had not even set it up yet but it was constantly restarting each time I shut it down causing slower phone performance and faster battery drainage.

How to check original Samsung if is fake or Korean?

I want to check if is fake or original?. I have tried: nothing

Not all Samsung phones are manufactured in Korea. Some are assembled in China. If you purchased your phone from a reputable dealer or bought it off someone who had it under contract with a major cell provider then it is most likely real. If purity of a phone is of utmost importance to you, it would be wise to purchase from online sites like Newegg or Best Buy.

How do I check to see if my Galaxy J5 is fake or genuine?

How do I check to see if my Galaxy J5 is a fake or an original phone. I have tried: Nothing.... m not familiar with the codes to check if the phone is original or fake. I think it was caused by: Its a used phone

There are several codes in the main VisiHow article on this page, however, do not rely just on those. Really examine your phone. Take images and see if they are the quality that they should be with an original J5. Connect the phone to Kies and see if it gets recognized. Register with Samsung.com and Samsung on your phone and then try to use Samsung's Find My Mobile.

I don't know if my Galaxy S7 is fake?

I entered those codes to determine if it is fake or what but suddenly there's no appearing on my screen.

Your phone may be taking longer to respond depending on what code you used to check. Restart your phone and see if the performance is back to normal. Put your phone into Recovery and see if the menu is in Chinese which is a dead giveaway that it is a clone phone.
