Mobiland Electronics Pvt. Ltd. started selling the Xiaomi smartphones in Nepal online since the start of 2015, but last month some Xiaomi buyers received fake non-genuine sets. However, Mobiland Electronics reacted quickly and posted on their official Facebook page about receiving few non- genuine sets from their importer and promised their customer to replace it if found so.
Mobiland Electronics, so far have launched 4 new products- Redmi 1s, Redmi Note, mi3 and mi4. These products are currently being sold through their eCommerce website.
The easiest way to know whether a Xiaomi phone is fake or not is by installing the app called MI Identification. After installing the app, open it and click on the “Manually Set the operation mode” and select the performance mode. Now the identification process will start on your phone and you will see the results on the next page. If you see the green page then the device is genuine and if you see the red or orange page that mean you are using the fake product. To know more about the device tap on the “Detailed configuration” button and check out the all the hardware detail of your device.
