How to Identify Fake Tecno Phones.

2. Screen resolution
Although Tecno devices’ screen are not as clear, bright and sharp as those of Samsung’s and other high quality phones, we can reasonably say that it has good quality. Therefore, if you are buying, for example, the Tecno H5, be sure that the quality of the screen resolution is high. If you are not sure about this, you can compare with other known original Tecno devices.
3. Try the About Phone
This is a better way of identifying a fake smart device. Go to the settings of the device and scroll to the extreme end. Tap on the “About Phone” and see the original device model and android version. A fake Tecno p3 will display a different model here, while the original tecno p3 will display the correct model along with other information about the device
4. Check the Futures
Sometimes, a tecno phone may be original but has a faulty ROM (Read Only Memory). This can cause some of the features like bluetooth or wi-fi from working. A Tecno device with this common problem is the Tecno M3. So, be sure to check out the features of your devices before paying.
What do you Think?
It is necessary to operate the device you are purchasing right in the store before purchasing. If a device is not the original, then you can be sure that it will easily get bad and in most cases, replacement parts for fake or cloned phones are not easily found.
