Identify a Genuine/Original Versus a Fake/Cloned Samsung Galaxy Phone

Questions and Answers

Just bought a Samsung Note5 from Amazon dealer named BREED and I am so disappointed that the phone I got was not in an original box?

Missing the Samsung Charger... but everything else seems to be there. Do not know if this phone is fake or not, it is made in Vietnam


The phone is probably real but the reviews for BREED on Amazon are less than complimentary. They were previously called CellPhoneKings. Sellers that frequently change their names or accounts on Ebay or Amazon are bad news. Mostly the reviews from BREED are exactly like what you experienced. Forget about contacting the seller to request the phone charger and just go purchase one directly from a store that carries Samsung Chargers. As for the original box, most of these phones are refurbished or trade-ins and not new. This is why you did not get the original box. The fact that the phone was made in Vietnam means that it probably is a Samsung. The online retailers that are disreputable walk a fine line of selling refurbished for instance and not declaring it in the advertisement. Those selling clones without clearly stating they are clones are blocked from selling. Until they create a new account. Point is, in the future before buying any electronics over the internet, always search the seller's name and "review" in Google.
