How to check original or not when I bring the phone?

I'm going to buy a Samsung Galaxy J2


The article on this VisiHow page can help you determine of your Samsung Galaxy J2 is real or not. It most cases, it will be real because the J2 is not an expensive Galaxy phone. Most clone manufacturers go after the newest higher end phones to replicate such as the Galaxy Note 7. It is also rare that a clone will be purchased during the launch phase of the phone as clones need to get a real phone and then spoof it which takes some time. Buy new and not used. If you do buy used then ask them where they purchased the device. Major cell phone carriers do not have clones unless it is clearly stated that the device is a clone.
