Is my Samsung a clone, it has an MTK board?

Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082 mt6572 software version alps.jb3.mp.vi board is Lenovo.wet.jb3

It is a fake if it has an MTK board. If you bought it second-hand it is possible that it was repaired using this board. The fastest way to truly know is to try to connect your phone to Kies by Samsung. If the phone is not a Samsung then Kies will not respond to commands.

Made in China: is it a Samsung company like the one in Vietnam?

Confused about the actual country of origin for the Samsung mobile phone

The country that builds the smartphones is not a company: it is actually just a factory of the Samsung company located on the premises of the mentioned country. For example, a smartphone made in Vietnam follows the same quality-assurance procedures as one made in Korea or China (they are the same, practically).

To find the actual country of origin, take the back cover off and remove the battery. The problem is that you cannot use the IMEI numbers 7 and 8 for this method, as Vietnam often overlaps with China in that respect. Just look what is written on the sticker itself. It should be "Made in" and the country of origin. You can also use Phone INFO Samsung to find out the country of origin of your smartphone.

There really is no difference. You do have people that swear their phone is better because it was manufactured in Vietnam but actually both countries produce a well made Samsung.
