If you have been following HighOnAndroid.com for awhile now, you probably remember when I ordered a Galaxy Note 4 and received a fake Note 4. Until then, I never knew such fake phones existed.
Well, the good news is that I eventually got my refund on my fake Note 4 but since then, I have heard from many of you guys who have gotten ripped off by buying a fake Note 4.
With Galaxy S6, the fake S6 clone was actually made available even before the launch of real Galaxy S6. For those of you who shop on eBay, Craigslist, on the streets, or at your local mom-and-pop store, you may want to know how to spot a fake Galaxy S6 so you don’t get ripped off.
These Chinese companies making fake phones are making millions of dollars with these fake clones. If you don’t know, you may be their next victim. I don’t want you to cry if that ever happens to you or ask me to root a fake phone, so here’s how to spot a fake S6:
First, the box color is different. You will find a beige colored box instead of the regular white box. Also the box itself has a tab that encloses the box while the fake one doesn’t.
Second, the back of the box will show model number of “SM-G920”, which is a model number that does not exist.
Upon comparing the real S6 with the fake S6, you will notice that the hole for the nano-SIM slot is on top for the real S6 versus on bottom for the fake S6.
While the real Galaxy S6 flash has a lens in it, the fake one doesn’t and all you see is a yellow circle like shown below:
