What is the code of genuine Samsung Galaxy J2?

I want to know if my phone is genuine


If USSD codes are not working, they may or may not mean that the smartphone is fake. Therefore, there is no such code. It is more reliable to test the smartphone with Samsung software: Kies 3 or Smart Switch. Plug your smartphone into your computer using the original cable and test if the smartphone is detected by either program.

How to find out a real Samsung Galaxy j2? What is the short code?

I want to buy a Samsung j2, so I want to check if it is real or fake, so what should I do? I have tried: No. I think it was caused by: I want a new Samsung phone


The Samsung codes are mentioned in the main article of this page, however, most of the codes can be used on any Android OS so this is not the best way to check. The most reliable way would be to register the device on Samsung.com. If it bounces back that the phone can't be found, this is because it is a fake.

If you have a Samsung phone from Verizon, it is not a fake phone. Major Cellphone Carriers use genuine phones because a few fake phones could mean the end of their company. You have nothing to worry about. If something is off with your phone, then contact Verizon and let them know of the bug you may have found.

How can I know if my Samsung Galaxy J2 device being original or fake?

I have bought a new Samsung Galaxy J2 phone. I want to know if a phone is original or fake. Please give me a good reply for it, thank you!

The J2 is a lower quality Samsung device. Because of this, the clone companies will not waste too much time or product on it. If you purchased it from a big box store, cell phone carrier or from a website such as Tigerdirect or Newegg then the device is real. Register it on Samsung.com.
