Real or fake? I X-rayed my Samsung Galaxy Phone to find out!

  • Published on Aug 10, 2019
  • I wanted to know if it was possible to spot the difference between the Samsung Galaxy phone I made in China and one I bought new at Best Buy. So I stuck it in an X-ray machine to find out! And the answer totally surprised me (not clickbait). Also, want to know how much the phone cost to make? Stick around to the end.
    Thanks to the folks at Creative Electron ( for showing me around and letting me play with their machines!

    I got this idea from the top comment, so first, you ask for a job at Samsung, then bring a broken Samsung Note 10 if you did got the job.
    After you do all that, take your Chinese parts, repair the phone but also install a headphone jack on it.
    Show it to the other staffs, and say that you "accidentally" added a headphone jack on a original Samsung Note 10! ;D

    Sir please let me know something urgent.
    I have S10 plus billed original from india. And since day 1 I have been facing camera issue. Blur terrible quality. Anyways long story short. The service center thinks it's fine wont agree. They compare with similar terrible piece. I compared to the Samsung s10 plus from usa 975u1 to mine 975F. So the camera is way better on usa. Can you tell me where to get the camera changed from Shanghai as I m travelling to china this week
    Please do let me know where to go n get it replaced cheap but original. Thanks
    Both cameras back and front
    And also my 4g keeps dropping in malls.

    @Strange Parts - I totally get why you dont include the price, and I get the point that the video(s) is more for the educational/because I can factor than the its cheaper factor (which I totally support), however it would be great if you could include future prices, purely just for curiosity sake. I often imaging building a device of any kind by part is more expensive compared to a used one

    How to put criminal thoughts into innocent minds. Making firsms/corps grow tenfold basically over night. A problem which rly wasnt and now they can take what ever orice they want. Thats criminal in it self. Atleat The Way of marketing/Way of thinking is. So philosofically /princips are just as worse both ethically/morally. Calling them "creative nerds" are a more correct term in my point of view as well.

    Honestly, as long as the replaced part works as good or better I don't see an issue. Part that is manufactured more recently is usually cheaper and as good or better. It's a different story if it's replaced with worse component.
