How to Identify A Fake Itel, Infinix and Tecno Phone

One of the things to avoid when buying a new phone is falling a victim for the fake ones because counterfeiters are restless in cloning fake phones. When the decision comes to buy a phone, the first plan is to avoid the fake one.

Sometimes, we make a week long consultation just to make sure we don’t buy a fake phone and is very painful when one buy a fake phone especially with hard earned money.

How You Can Identify A Fake Itel, Infinix and Tecno Smartphones

1. The Phone Pack: Most fake smartphones looks strong and thick to even differentiate them from the original one. They are called “COPY”, they are strong with high Android operating system (OS).

To avoid buying this type of fake phone, firstly, identify the model of the phone and copy the name and model number, take it the market and buy the pack first. Before you pay for the phone, remove it and check the charging point, ear phone and volume control keys. If they did not fit in properly, it’s a copied or cloned phone because copies don’t have same fitting as the original phones.

2. The Warranty Seal: The seal can be found on almost all phones, is carefully placed above a screw at the back of the phone. Next time you want to buy a phone, check and examined all the screw holding the phone, you will see a warranty seal covering one of them and if you can’t find this seal, the phone is a copied and might have even been used before.

3. Network Promo Label: This is another sure way to identify and spot a fake Itel, Infinix and Tecno Phone. They come with either MTN, Glo and 9mobile (Etisalat) label promo sealed inside their pack. I’ve never seen a “Copy” with a promo label but if you find the promo seal you are buying an original phone.

Stick to these guides and you will never fall victim of buying a cloned or copied Itel, Infinix and Tecno phones.
