There are lots of knock-offs (fake) mobile phones and smartphones on the market. Would you dare to kill someone who sells you a fake version of the iPhone? Well such an incident occurred in Zhengzhou in northern China. A 29-year-old cook stabbed someone for selling fake iPhones. The cook purchased a brand new iPhone for 2000 Yuan from a man and later he realized that his iPhone was a knock-off. He rushed back to the market with a large knife to find the con man, but he could not find him. Instead, he saw some others trying to cheat a young boy in the same way. The cook brandished his large knife and they ran. That is not all! After few days, he happened to meet the same gang and a fight occurred between them that led a second victim to die due to excessive blood loss. User statistics about iPhones show that China Mobile has up to 15 million iPhone users. The Shanzhai market is well known as it is the China’s counterfeit products place and many vendors sell knock-off iPhones and other handsets to generate a good source of income. You do not need to fall into serious trouble when buying an iPhone. Following some tips can help you buy a genuine iPhone. Check and test the battery, touch screen, sim-card slot and the memory space. The battery space is impossible for you to access and you will need to go to an Apple store to replace batteries. It comes in standard storage sizes like 16, 32, and 64 GB. Anything beyond this is considered fake. Check if it is the right size, check the back cover and functions as well.
