    How to distinguish Original and Fake Iphone 4s?

    Good day, I was pointed here by XDA Forums because they say that this is the appropriate forum for iphone. Anyways, here is my question. (Originally Posted at XDA Forum)

    Here in the Philippines, China products called China phones are all over the places so you really want to buy in a trusted store and mostly apple products are located in Manila (and you know what china products are). Anyways, how would you know that the iphone 4s that you bought is original and not a fake one if you are buying online?

    You should not buy it offline as they can show you pics of a real one and it'll be the cheap one. That is one thing is the price. Those knock offs look just like the real deal but are super cheap. Also you really need to hold it in your hand and feel the weight and make sure that its really iOS on the device and not iLauncher over Android. You just really need to observe the phone in person to really tell.

    Hey
    I have real a lot of blogs showing comparison of real and fake iPhone. The design of fake devices is having minute differences when compared to original one. Check this video link you will get a few information.

    Google is your friend you can search for the differences (make searches for Blog).

    If you see 2 SIM cards, or TV, or spare battery in the description, it is 101% fake.

    You can recognize the original phone by just taking it in your hands. The look and feel of an original iphone is totally different.

    Hi,

    I would say you to check with few things in order to be careful in buying a original iPhone
    check with the operating system which runs on the device.
    check with the camera quality
    check whether front camera working or is it a dummy one (4/4s/5)
    If your doubt didn't clear of with these checks do a check with IMEI #
    Check how touch works

    I have recommended you these cuz normally in chinese mobile whatever i mentioned will be not thr or low in quality so that you can quickly identify the original one and dummy chinese one.I would say don't ever buy it online if its not a trusted site cuz then its easy to scam you on the device.

    Thank You
