There are many things that come with buying a new phone especially the MediaTek phones. Buying a smartphone comes with more technicalities and a whole lot of things. Most people end up buying a phone replicate thinking is an original. With the invention of the smartphone, there come new brands of phones on the market. Some are originals whiles others are fakes/replicas.
If you are considering buying a new Infinix smartphone then you have to know that there are a lot of Infinix phones out there, both the original and the replicate ones. Most smartphone outlets in the country today sell the different model of Infinix smartphones.
As a buyer, it is always good to know some of the features to look out for when you are on a course to buying your brand new smartphone.
If you are reading this post, then you are going to see how to check whether the Infinix phone you are to buy or you already bought is a replica or original.
The below steps you are going to see are what I and most of my tech guys use to determine the originality of every Infinix smartphone we come in contact with. So without wasting any time let’s begin.
To determine whether the Infinix phone you are to buy or using is original or fake you will need three things from that phone:
- The IMEI number
- VC of the phone
- Battery serial number.
You can check the IMEI of every smartphone by going to Settings >> About Phone >> Status >> IMEI information and you will get it. Or you can dial *#06#, which is a universal code for checking IMEI.
The VC number can be found beneath the battery or on the battery.
The battery serial number can also be seen on the unit (the battery) itself.
Once you have these three things then you are now ready, to begin with, your checkup.
Steps To Follow:
First of all, make sure you have an internet connection and then open your web browser either on your smartphone or a laptop. Once your browser is open, type in the URL (http://gc.infinixmobility.com/) in the address box of your browser.
Once you are on the site, you will be required to enter the IMEI, the VC and the serial number of the phone you want to check.
Now enter the required information and then click on the submit button.
Now the information about the phone will be shown to you (a message will appear telling you whether the Infinix phone/battery you’ve tested is fake or original). From here you can tell whether the phone is original or replica. That’s all…
Anytime you want to buy a new Infinix smartphone you can follow the above steps to check its originality before purchasing. You can also follow this same process to check if the battery you are buying is original or fake.
