Baleful factor- the price
Price is crucial for those people who buy second hand products. Some immoral vendors use this weakness to make the other person in trouble. If there is a price difference of20% with the current secondary market then be conscious that there is some problem with the phone. Some people reassemble the parts of the phone sell it as ne phone because they earn a huge profit on them. For example the earlier group of JS will be amended into a T29 Ericsson T20 for sale. The price was only 450 yuan, resulting in large number of consumers have been cheated. Mind you 5%- 10% difference with the secondary market is considered as normal.
The final report zhong

Is phone original?
Every phone has its three codes the electronic serial number IME, this number with the fuselage and the IMEI code on the box line, if these three codes are not matching then there is definitely a problem in the phone.

Commonly there are reconditioned phones in the secondary market: there are two types of reconditioning, one outer box renovation, second housing refurbishment. It is easier to identify the outer box reconditioning because in genuine phones the outer images are very clear as compared to fake ones. Plus most of the housing renovation of phones is just an imitation of the original phones. It should be noted that refurbished phones have somehow gaps in their parts which are not closely tight.
Parts to buy
Accessories purchased with the cell phones are also an important. Most of the consumers buy compatible parts of the machines in order to maximize the profit. In general the original batteries in the bottom of the categories do not have any warranty stickers. If you see a sticker on it then it is likely to be fake.
