Here Are Ways You Can Spot a Fake Huawei Device in Nigeria.

If you were to ask me 2 weeks ago, I’d probably tell you that the number of fake Huawei devices in Nigeria wouldn’t be so high, but the truth is, we have so many fake Huawei devices in the market today, devices that can cause a lot of havoc.

I bought one – the Huawei Mate 9 so I can show you ways you can identify a fake Huawei device.

Do watch the video and also let me know if you have ever bought a fake device.

    😂 The rate of fake products in Nigeria might soon chase us out 😂.
    It’s difficult to find original trusted products in Nigeria nowadays.

    If I were to walk into a store to buy the fake version of this phone (unknowingly) without even watching this video prior, I’d have known it was counterfeit from the lack of boot animation, the bulkiness (why are most fake devices always heavier?) & the pure/stock Android OS. Huawei can’t manufacture any phone without their custom UI

      First off… you would have bought the device already before you can even get to see the boot animation. I feel removing the lid to see the bezel she talked about in the vide helps also

    In a country where you have a fake president… , what more could you expect?

    I’m not surprised. There are a lot of fake phones in the Nigerian market. Even iPhone has its clone.

    Feels like I just watched something from BBC CLICK. Only thing missing in the video was an animated “BREAKING NEWS!”/“THIS JUST IN!!” title card. Woulda been very appropriate.
    Very detailed comparisons. But what about the boxing​/carton/packaging? Does the fake come with the same boxing as the original? Cus I feel for every fake phone I’ve seen, that’s ​always been my “eureka” moment in spotting their bullsh*t. Who’s with me?

      I am with you on this.

        Many reasons why she didn’t include that. Maybe she got the original first and the package isn’t in the right condition again

        1. Kaybang® DANANANA BATMAN!™ says:

          I can live with that 😃.
          And like it’s said in the video, the name of the phone should also give it away that you’re buying Chinese fuckery.

            You are saying that because you know. There are many people In Nigeria that don’t know about these things. trust me.

          2. Kaybang® DANANANA BATMAN!™ says:

            I understand bro. Which is why i asked about it. I feel being able to distinguish between the boxing is always the first line of defense against buying Chinese fuckery 😃

    Purchase your devices from reputable stores, not road side “phone shop”. Good stores look out for quality to maintain their business.
