There was a time when Tecno was not a recognized (popular) brand and there were so many fake phones and batteries in the market. Tecno changed the way they make their phones and packages, started making phones running on the Android OS and everything changed.
Now, many people use the Tecno phone with pride, unlike before. This has resulted in many other phone brands like Infinix, Innjoo springing up. They are all very cheap too.
How Can I Verify Tecno Phone Is Not Counterfeit
As much as Tecno is trying to make original (genuine) Smartphones, there are rogue companies out there making fake Tecno phones and batteries especially. How do you now check if the Tecno phone you have bought is original or fake? This is very easy to tell by looking at the Package, Seal, the Phone itself and more. Checking genuineness is not easy when it comes to Tecno batteries and any other phone battery at all.
I mentioned some parameters you can check to know if your Tecno phone is original i.e. made by Tecno Mobile, but they are not really easy to detect. They can still be imitated, so I will just show you the most important means of verification – from Tecno Mobile themselves.
