Re: Sony Xperia S Made in chaina?

Many of the parts you mentioned, such as batteries and headphones, are often made in China.If you want to know whether the phone itself is genuine and not a fake, then check the phone's serial number (IMEI) with Sony, or simply see if PC Companion or the Update Service recognise the phone.

Yes it shows up as a K610i, which is indeed very worrying. I checked my own phone and it shows up as the correct one. I suggest you send a private message to one of the SE moderators on this forum so that they can confirm this and advise you on what to do.It seems that, if this is indeed true, you will need to contact the ebay seller and ask for a refund.

This one gives the correct result indeed. The other site was wrong about met XS and HTC Desire Z so just use the correct website.

Yes indeed, this site seems to be a lot more acurate--both Achiket's and my phone's IMEI check out correctly. You can use the link on the other website to report the error (s).

Sony makes their products in china, because their factory is located in china,
