There are always a lot of differences between the phones, but quite often the IMEI code is the way to check the originality of the phone. Do not check the IMEI from the phone menu itself, as it can be altered. Instead, locate the IMEI code either on the back cover of the phone (for iPhone devices) or under the cover and battery. Then, you can check the IMEI code on several web sites, for example, on http://www.imei.info/.

Does the Android logo/image presence in the DFU mode signify whether the phone is original or not?

I mean I have a Samsung Duos phone, when I enter the DFU mode I am not seeing the usual Android logo, so is it original or fake? I did all other sensor and battery tests and it passed them all, so is it original or fake?

If you mean the recovery or download mode, then the answer is that different recovery menu images or menu items may only signify that your phone was either rooted or flashed with another firmware. This does not mean that your device is fake, but it can be a sign of being such if the smartphone, packed into a sealed box, was actually sold with a custom recovery menu in a store. For example, ClockworkMod recovery menu may have an icon with a hat and Team Win's Recovery Project recovery menu may have buttons instead of plain text.

To learn if it is original, connect it to a PC with Smart Switch or Kies 3.0 and check if the program recognizes your phone. Do not forget to install the Samsung USB driver.
