Questions and Answers

When I enter the codes on a cloned handset, what will appear there?

How do the codes work on cloned handsets?

Ad

Samsung's handset codes are designed with Samsung-produced hardware in mind. They will only work on a genuine Samsung handset; when they're entered in a genuine Samsung product, they will show specific hardware or software information. When they're entered on a fake device, however, a number of things can happen. Since these codes are entered in the phone's Phone application, you may get a message from your carrier saying that the number you entered is not valid. You may also get a message on your phone saying that the code you entered is not valid. Or, if it's a very well-made clone, you may actually get the information that the codes are designed to give you on a real Samsung device. If that's the case, then you'll want to call Samsung's customer service line and give them your IMEI and serial numbers so they can check their systems and tell you if you indeed have a fake device or not.

How can I tell if my Samsung U8150 is original?

Are all batteries of genuine Samsung phones Samsung batteries? How can I know if Samsung U8150 is original?

If you are buying a brand-new Samsung device, then the battery must be an original Samsung battery. However, a second-hand Samsung may have any battery of the same type, size, and voltage. U8150 might be a Huawei model though with its own 3.7 V Huawei battery. Check if this U8150 is your phone: Huawei u8150. If it is, then you can compare the specifications for the original phone on that Web page with the actual ones in your phone by using the System Info Droid application.

Can my replaced Samsung LED screen be a fake?

Hi, so I broke my Samsung Galaxy screen and got the LED replaced at a shop. came to 100 euro approx and lasted about 5 months before it randomly started going funny. Whenever I press the home screen button, the screen goes fuzzy, the picture flickered and sometimes go completely black. Its very temperamental and an off colored circle has appeared in the corner and is getting bigger. I had done no damage to the phone so what could be the problem? Is it possible that the LED he replaced was a dodgy one? Thanks
