Most Chinese phones use same software.
So just take a chinese phone, look at the display and note it
When next u see a phone if it displays like that, its most likely its a chinese phone

Most of them are not running standard registered firmware and as such are not or have not been given correct IMEI from registry.
just type *#06# and you would not get any result. but registered firmware and phones should give u about 15 digit numbers if. Do it and let me know cos am not in Nigeria and we do not have the phones over here.

@Chmod,
Thats not entirely thru.
In my over 10 years of GSM repairs, I have not seen a single China phone that doesnt have a 15 digit IMEI by *#06#

Question: How Do I Indentify A China Iphone?

Answer: Simple, switch it off and switch it on again- If it gives you a distinctively loud polyphonic welcome tone, it is from China. Also go to the market with a magnifying lens. Place the name and logo under the magnifying lens to see that iPhone is not IPhone, JPhone, 1Phone, lPhone !Phone or 7Phone. If it has a TV forget it, if it is shinny forget it, if it is too cheap to believe forget it.

If you buy a phone in a 3rd world country, its very likely to be a 'china' phone.
Bythe way most phones are 'china' but the build specification and material standards given to the factories will differ
depending on where the phone is going.
These phones are tested to maintain the agreed specs especially the ones going to 1st world destinations.

So iphones going to the Uk shops will be of better quality than those going to Nigeria all from CHINA.
Same goes for almost everything else.
