Like my previous article, Samsung Galaxy S6 will continue to use Exynos processor as Galaxy S Series earlier.

However, according to LG, the issue is not true. Because Snapdragon 810 never overheated on their smartphones that use this processor, LG G Flex 2. According to them, this processor can perform its functions properly. Besides LG, mobile phone manufacturer from China, Xiaomi also use Snapdragon 810 in their Xiaomi Ni Note Pro and not overheated like what is rumored.

But it seems Qualcomm did not want to quiet only to respond the issues. Qualcomm promised to update their Snapdragon 810 especially for Samsung Galaxy S6. This action is to do so that Samsung still want to choose them instead of Exynos processor. However, when both companies are asked about what processor will be used on Samsung Galaxy S6, they do not want to comment.

So we just to wait Samsung Galaxy S6 launched. The processor selected by Samsung is certainly the most best processor in both. If there is a poll to choose Snapdragon 810 or Exynos, which one would you choose?

At present, there are many fake android smartphone revolved. The fake android smartphone physically and packaging has made same as the original. Normally, this fake android smartphone sale cheaper than the original. For example, the most frequently be falsified is a smartphone made by Samsung. The fake Samsung Galaxy S5 is only sale  half price of the original price. Although the same as physically, a fake smartphone can we know with some of the following ways:

1. Use the code *#0*#. This code will displays the feature to check the condition of your android smartphone. Such as vibration, sound, colors, and more. If the code is running, your android smartphone is original, otherwise it is fake. *#0*# is a code that is used by Samsung, for SONY you can use *#*#7378423#*#*. But there are some fake android smartphone still displays the features in this checking code, to be sure, please try the tips number 2.

2. Use the code *#06# for checking the IMEI number. IMEI number is a unique identification number which equiped on every android smartphone. So all original android smartphone certainly has the IMEI number. But do not be fooled, many fake smartphone also include the IMEI number in *#06#. To check the authenticity, you can match it with the existing IMEI number behind your smartphone. If still in doubt, you can check in www.imei.info.

3. Using benchmark application. Benchmark application can display the actual features that exist in android smartphone. You can try Antutu Benchmark which can be downloaded for free in Google Play Store. Please match the results from Antutu Benchmark with features released by the original manufacturer. If the same, it is an original android smartphone. If not, it is fake.

4. Pay attention to the camera result. Android smartphone cameras that use large resolution certainly produce image files with large size as well. For example for a camera with 13 Megapixel can produce image files with a size of 3-4 MB. If it display 13MP camera specifications, but the image file size is under 1MB, it is certainly a fake android smartphone. Because the camera resolution is not real.
