Nadra al Amri, IT security consultant at Protiviti, said, “The major issue with fake mobile phones is that they they’re not tested for compliance with industry safety standards and even worse, they’re mostly manufactured from cheap materials and some contain harmful levels of dangerous elements such as lead. “We have also heard of mobile phone batteries exploding.  This is due to flaws in the design or assembly of their batteries. There are also other poor features associated with fake mobile phones. They usually have inoperable speakers, low-resolution camera and slow and old processors that result in very poor network connectivity. The public should be well aware and only purchase approved devices which comply with European standards to safeguard their health.”

Sangeetha Sridhar, eGovernment consultant, Information Technology Authority, added, "In a cost-conscious market it is tough to control the proliferation of duplicate devices that come with very low price tags. But when spurious devices are sold as originals, it is time for authorities such as TRA and PACP to do the needful in terms of actions and awareness to protect the mobile user.

“Duplicate devices are made up of cheap components, sensors and power circuits. Sensors may not cut off circuits at dangerous operational levels. Components made of cheap plastics emanate unhealthy chemicals when heated up. Batteries may also blow up randomly. Performance such as signal range may be affected.”
