Please I'm confused help me how can I know my phone status whether it is original or fake
IMEI is not a true test of your MTK phone's authenticity, it can be easily written to the phone.
The fake one looks a lot like the original but it would often run on Spreadtrum instead of MTK CPU.
The fake might not be able to boot into recovery mode the way the original would (vol up + power).
The rooting technique for the fake phone is often different from that which should work on an original
You can also run an Antutu test to get its features and compare that to the original's specs
