In one such case, a user named Bhavye Sharma has alleged in a YouTube video that he has received a fake product. Notably, he had ordered an iPhone 11 Pro from Flipkart during Big Billion Day sale but claims that that the phone is not genuine.
In the video, he has narrated his experience and gives reasons and explanations as to why he thinks it is a fake iPhone 11 Pro. He points out how the USB cable, air-bubbles, apps on the phone, all raise suspicion that it is a fake product.
When he opens the camera app, the zoom barely does anything on the phone. Another huge red flag is when he opens the Maps app, it opens Google Maps instead of Apple Maps.
He wrote, ”I got this Knock-Off iPhone 11 pro that runs Android and has replicated almost all of the iOS app as well as its UI. It is almost impossible to tell the difference but this video will hopefully help.”
He has further alleged that the Flipkart return technician refused to collect his phone after inspection claiming that it passes all their “quality checkpoints” and is not valid for return.
