Today, I got to lay my hands on a Infinix gif(at the bottom of this post) that can help anyone truly discern if an Infinix hot 4 phone is original, or fake. Many people are scared to refurbished phones, but of a truth, they are everywhere.
- 1 HOW TO SPOT A FAKE INFINIX HOT 4 MOBILE PHONE
What is a fake phone sef?
A fake phone is a phone that is produced by an unofficial company to be a clone to a model of a phone created by an original and licensed company.
A fake phone is different from a refurbished phone
What do I mean? While I was learning how to fix phone hardware issues(as I could fix software issues before then), my boss would call a fake phone refurbished. But over the years, I have gotten to know that this is wrong.
I would explain about fake phones, refurbished phones and original phones and ho you can spot the differences.
The fact that you buy a phone in a sealed pack does not mean it is original.
So, lets look at the differences between The Original Infinix Hot 4 and the Fake Infinix Hot 4 Below:
HOW TO SPOT A FAKE INFINIX HOT 4 MOBILE PHONE
The keys below can be used to spot a fake Infinix Hot 4, Infinix Hot 4 Lite, and Infinix Hot 4 pro!.
KEY 1: Charging Port Location:
All variants of the Infinix Hot 4 (Infinix Hot 4 Lite, Infinix Hot 4, Infinix Hot 4 Pro) have their charging port located in the same place, which is at the bottom left area of the phone. A fake infinix hot 4 would not have it in this location.
KEY 2: SENSOR, FRONT FLASHLIGHT AND CAMERA LOCATION:
As seen in the picture below, the front camera and flashlight of all types of the Infinix Hot 4 are located at the top left area of the phone, while the sensors are at the top right location.
KEY 3: INSIDE THE CAMERA APP:
An original Infinix Hot 4 can be known by opening the android app. According to my picture below, the phone with which the camera app, on opening, is like the Hot 4 in the left side in the picture below is original.
KEY 4: THE LOCK SCREEN MENU:
The original infinix hot 4, when locked, only has two buttons showing at the bottom of the screen, which is the Call button at the bottom left area, and the Camera button at the bottom right area. Note that a fake infinix Hot 4 would have an unlock button at the middle of the bottom of the screen.
KEY 5: MOUTHPIECE LOCATION
Although this is not included in the gif provided by Infinix which is shown below, the mouthpiece of the original infinix Hot 4, as seen in the Key 1 image, has its hole just beside the charging port and is not too close to the edge of the screen, but a fake one would have the cover cracked a bit to show a hole , as seen in the image.
Here you have it! Share your thoughts below. Below is the gif of four differences released by infinix on How to spot a fake infinix hot 4 mobile device.
