Check the hologram label on the back of the phone. If it has a serial number and Apple logo image embedded in it then the device is genuine!

I've seen some videos of iPhone knockoffs and every review was absolutely abysmal. If you have ever held a real iPhone you can tell the difference immediately. If the hardware isn't an immediate clue the crappy OS on the device should clue you in.

I just think back to the day I bought it from the Apple Store.

I can't Sticky it, but it's just received a free bump ;)

If it has a whole Apple as a logo instead of the bitten one.;)

I determined that my iPhone was legitimate by buying it from the Apple Store.
