Check the Packaging.
Before buying a new gadget, take a close look at its package, paying attention to the print quality. The font should be legible and consistent everywhere. Nothing should be loose inside.

Look Inside the User Manual.
All important information about the device must be there in the language of the country of purchase. If it’s written in some other language and you can’t read it, then it’s either a smuggled device or a brand copycat.

Pay Attention to the Material.
The plastic covering must be smooth, without seams or other imperfections. Take a closer look at the gadget to uncover cheap plastic with matte shades and irregular surfaces.

Take a Look at the Fonts.
All fonts and symbols on the device must be smooth, readable, and durable. It’s often the case with fakes that they lack the name of the manufacturer or they have it somehow wrong.

Check the Charger.
The charger should be adapted for use in your country. Remember, brands are responsible for your safety when using their gadgets. That’s why originals always have neat metal tips and quality insulation.

Check Wires and Plugs.
In the original, a plugged-in cable will sit firmly and evenly, while in a fake you’ll see incorrect angles and loose parts.
