    my advice is to only purchase from carriers and Samsung! this clone is exceptionally close!

    Man buys a Galaxy S6 off craigslist, ends up with an impressive clone that has terrible performance - SamMobile

    Heed the OP's advice. Probably thought they were getting a bargain. Maybe some of my "fans" bought one and that's why they are having issues. JK. LOL.

    This has been going on for a few Samsung generations now. And in the fashion and accessory business for decades. Knockoffs are always cheaper. Cellphone knockoffs just don't sell for that much of a discount, to keep you from thinking that you're buying a knockoff. (A woman buying a $2,000 handbag for $85 knows she's buying a knockoff, but as long as it looks real, no one is going to open it and look for the label. With a $700 cellphone for $500 you think you're getting a bargain, only to find out it's about an S2 inside, with a larger screen.)

    I don't know how someone can get fooled by a 720p screen, probably not amoled neither.

    The m9 is not selling like hot cakes. Beyond being a clone there are other things to be aware of. Why would someone sell a phone they don't want for a loss when they can just return it? For just released phones I will always ask the seller for a receipt.

    This is what happens when a buyer does not do his homework and goes shopping for a used phone on craigslist. I recently sold my 6 plus. We met at the mall. The buyer did not even check to see if find my iPhone was on or even put his Sim in it and make a test call. So naive.

    That is exactly what you should do. The reason scammers are successfull is because of people that don't do their homework before buying.
