Important to know which phone model it is before ordering accessories, often the phones have similar model names.
It can differ, e.g. a final number, a letter, a year etc. so it's easy to get it wrong, as it usually changes something on the phone.
Here we have listed a few different ways to display the model number on the phone.
Some android phones may use special model numbers, take this number and do a search on Google.
1. See phone settings.
One way to check the phone's model name and number is to use the
phone itself. Go to the Settings or Options menu, scroll to the bottom of the list and select "About phone", "About device" or similar.
The device name and model number should be listed in the next view, eg model ID.
On some phones, you can select "more" to display the entire list.
2. Check the phone and its packaging.
It may sound obvious, but you should be able to find some mention of the phone or its model number on the phone,
some phones may have a small white sticker on the back.
The same sticker is also found in some older phones, usually inside the battery cover. (possibly behind a removable battery).
On the packaging itself there may also be information.
If nothing comes up as a potential model name, try googling any words or numbers you can find.
3. Check the purchase receipt.
Regardless of whether you bought the phone online or in a store, you will normally receive an order receipt that should contain your model number.
4. Check Bluetooth name.
Another way to get a clue to the phone's name is via Bluetooth.
Each Bluetooth device has a preset name that it uses to connect.
By connecting to another smartphone or device, you can see which device name is listed.
5. Identify your Apple phone / tablet.
Do you need to identify which iPhone you have?
Check out Apple's excellent support page where all product model numbers are listed.
On their tablets (iPads) you will find the model number on the back.
6. Older phones.
Some older phones have their model numbers printed on a sticker attached to the phone's battery compartment.
Turn off the phone, remove the back cover, then remove the battery to see the sticker.
7. See category description.
Under each category description on our page, we have summarized technical data about each phone model.
Information about e.g. screen size, phone size, weight, release etc.< br />Also a picture of the front and back of the phone.
