It is totally normal unfortunately that the Chinese market is dedicated to making copies of other products that are becoming very popular in the world. Without going too far, we can talk about the example that occurs the most when talking about this kind of thing, such as the classic “Polystation” that was nothing more than a cheap copy of the Playstation 1 and above it played SNES games, nothing to do with the classics of the first PlayStation and its cds.
Fake Samsung S7
But over the years, the Chinese have outdone themselves more and more and they demonstrated it more than when they began to imitate different mobile devices from other companies, as in this case Samsung.
Keep in mind that the differences are quite simple to find. First of all the original has Android 6.0.1 Marhsmallow. In addition, it has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive screen that has an incredible resolution that reaches 1440 x 2560 pixels. It has a Qualcomm MSM8996 Sanpdragon 820 Exynos 8890 Octa processor.
On the other hand, it must be taken into account that devices that are replicas, cheap copies They have a lower operating system than the one we mentioned above, in addition to the fact that on many occasions this can also be “disguised” as a new version, so keep in mind and better look closely at “About device” in the Settings part. Let’s also note that the processors used by the knockoffs are MTK.
Let’s keep in mind that the official and real versions have storage of 32 and also 64 GB. While the fake copies are 8GB maximum.
How to know when a Samsung S7 is the original
First of all, you will realize if you ever had an S7 in your hands, because the difference in the quality of the materials that were used to make them is noticeable. The original has a metal finish that is noticeable to the touch when the fake has nothing to do with it. One tip that is to hit the back with your nails and you will notice the enormous difference.
Also if you look at the part where the IMEI and the serial number generally appear, you should see that it says: Designed by Samsung and Made in VIETNAM ”. When the Chinese What do they say? You guessed it, evidently they say “Made in china”.
