 The huge price tag placed by Samsung and Apple on their products makes those selling counterfeit products yield more. Most people buying smartphones today would settle for a premium device for quite a decent price. In this area, most people would settle for Apple and Samsung and so falling victim to spoofed product won't be difficult since there's hardly a real physical difference from the original.
