How To Spot A Fake iPhone

How To Spot A Fake iPhone


So, I received this box it looks like an iPhone, you take a glace around here, iPhone 6s, the back looks the same I mean it looks like an iPhone, But it ain’t an iPhone This my friends is a high quality, high caliber chinese iPhone knock off Lets go ahead and find out what the differences are! Maybe there are none, Maybe they all fool me, completely Maybe we should all be using it now, I highly doubt it So, the first thing, being a guy who has unboxed a number of iPhones The first thing that’ll tip you off that you got a fake is this little bag here This tray, they’ve something similar to that. Lets look at the– Oooh! The device actually, Wow that’s a pretty good fake Here’s a real one, and here’s a fake one Whoaa Okay, the other thing I noticed is where the front facing camera is It’s a little bit more pronounced on the knock off, and also, oh the writing here There’s few more FCC, Do not dispose type logos there But otherwise, MAN, Okay, You can– that’s another spot. So on the real iPhone You have got this type of cut out on this one, you have a line almost drawn into the aluminium Also, is it a little bit lighter? That area there is pretty much identical And this area here is pretty much… That is- That’s amazing There’s a ridge here You can kinda feel it with your finger That doesn’t exist, it’s much more smooth on the real deal I don’t know man To… to the untrained individual, that baby might pass! Wow! Chinese writing there, a bit of a giveaway Lightning cable–TWO! A European plug and then some ear pods. Oh my- A little bit slower The display is a bit of a giveaway as well much more dim but look at this now this
thing is obviously running some kind of android right but, it’s skinned with
this iOS look-alike. There’s the settings menu, the font is a little bit off when I
use the ringer on this one, that’s what it looks like. On this one,
slightly different. Something tells me the camera image quality is not going to
be as good okay there’s one off the fake iPhone, real iPhone. Yeah, that’s another
giveaway; image quality on the camera I mean what happens if you go to the
iTunes Store here? *Laughing* The iTunes Store takes you to Spotify! Ok that’s a bit of another giveaway, but
let’s be honest man if someone’s trying to swindle somebody on Craigslist or
something and they don’t go in and check everything– What about FaceTime? Does that bring me to Skype or something? Oh, just the dialer. There’s a little
vibration as well that’s prominent on the fake unit ok let’s do a little video/speaker
test here. Okay *Laughing* Knockoff sounds like a knockoff It’s true, it’s true regular iphone selfie time
versus definitely not of the same caliber here are my rules, real vs. fake- The screen should be bright and vibrant, this one’s a little bit washed out. Check the camera; the quality should be obvious Check the app store, the fake one will
take you to Google Play and of course the iTunes Store, which takes you to Spotify.
Don’t be fooled by that either but otherwise, they might have you fooled.
Don’t send your grandma to buy an iPhone off of Craigslist. She might come back with a fake one.

  1. here in europe even legit iphones from Apple stores Come with that ugly FCE labelings on the back 😭 ya Americans got only iphone title in the back

  2. Is it possible for someone to sell me a "used iphone" but its like old hardware and a new shell, so it looks like a new x but its something older??

  3. I have a new phone that’s coming from amazon in a few days and I’m scared it might be knock off so I’m doing so investigating

  4. I think Apple has some part in the production, maybe they get cuts?, how come they don't even stop the manufacturing facility? They have a lot of money to stop that being manufactured.

  5. I do appreciate your comparisons but for someone like myself trying to move over from android to IOS without an original to compare with what am I to look out for as a tell tale sign of a fake iphone?

  6. bro you obviously dont know china ,they have levels to their fake Sh*#. you probs got the worse fake grade.

  7. Yeah but most of us won't be able to tell the difference because we don't have the other original iphone to compare.

  8. Yeah but when you buy it in irak or some where else you can't give it back and you can't open it before you buy it

  9. heres a tip if you are putting them side by side can you put a label which one is the real one? makes it easier.

  10. How to know if you bought the fake iphone?

    JUST FREAKING SAVE SO YOU COULD BUY THE REAL ONE FROM APPLE STORES

  11. I had an iphone i believe its an imitation however the itunes doesnt leads me to spotify and the app store doesn't leads me to google app store.

  12. Ok I tried the ringer and looked same as the real so I’m still wondering do I have a fake iPhone or not cuz it’s supposedly refurbished

  13. Oh shit I might not have a fake screen nice and bright iTunes takes me to iTunes FaceTime worked with my cousin and step cousin who both bought they’re at a store cricket and idk the other and fake doesn’t take me to google play amazon this better not be a god tier fake

  14. I have an original iPhone 7+ and on the back of my phone does not have the FCC and NTSC or what ever larger logos. But my itune store is legitimate. Not all OriginalApple IPhones have the bigger logos on the back. But you can always do a serial number verification before buying it.
