High-quality products, affordable price, MIUI are some of the key drivers and secret of success for Xiaomi. However, Xiaomi is facing another foe: counterfeiters in China and Global market. Counterfeit goods are fake items deliberately made to look genuine. These goods can cause massive losses in revenue to companies and damage their reputation. We often receive complaints from users that they have bought fake Mi products especially via third party online platforms. Among the most popular counterfeit Mi products are Mi Powerbank and Mi phones.
Lei Jun called fake goods, “a social cancer, a serious damage to the image of the country and consumer confidence,” and said it was time to support efforts to get rid of them. In this thread, we are going to learn how to identify the original and fake Xiaomi phones in two simple steps.
1. Mi Verification App
Mi Verification App is developed by Xiaomi for users to identify whether the Mi or Redmi phone on their hand is fake or genuine. A simple test will be conducted to test the hardware, performance, and your device history. A fake Mi phone will fail in any of the three tests. Some users might face some problem during verification process, we've reported to our developer. However, as long as you bought your Mi phones from official store then you don't have to worry about that.
