Xiaomi, Samsung, Apple Are Three Most-Faked Smartphone Brands

Samsung, Apple, and Xiaomi are three most-fake smartphone brands in the world and these three brands are also the top five biggest brands in the mobile industry.

The Master Lu, a well-known benchmark platform in China, recently released a ranking of the most "knocked-off" smartphones in Q1 / 2020.

Specifically, among the 10 most-fake smartphones in China published by Master Lu, 9 are from Samsung, Apple, and Xiaomi, showing that these are the three most influential smartphone brands. Master Lu said the company detected fake devices by reading information that users could not identify from the "About phone" section.

In the list provided by Master Lu, the company conducted more than 1.2 million performance tests in Q1 / 2020 and discovered nearly 8,000 fake devices. The top 5 most fake devices include Samsung W2019 (with 498 fake devices), iPhone X (246 fake devices), iPhone 8 (213 fake devices), iPhone XS Max (172 fake devices) and Xiaomi Mi Max 3 (127 fake devices). It is worth noting that in the top 5 only the Mi Max 3 is a mid-range smartphone.

Master Lu also added that this is the number of times its benchmark tool detects a fake device, so it is not sure if there is a device that has been tested multiple times.

Of course, the above figures do not surprise many users. For a long time, China has been considered the market with the highest number of "fake" devices, fake goods and poor quality products, especially in the field of technology and electronic devices. Even some smartphones have not even been launched, but there have been widespread fake goods and sold at extremely cheap prices to trick users.

In terms of regional spread, these are the Chinese provinces with the highest number of fake products in ascending order: Guangxi, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Hunan, Jiangsu, Sichuan, Hebei, Henan, Shandong, and Guangdong.
