We have explained below how you can find out and know how old your mobile is in 4 different ways:
check the box
If you want to find out how old your smartphone is, then first of all you have to check the box. The box in which the phone was packed. While unboxing the phone, you might have noticed that there is a white sticker on the phone box which has some words, numbers, barcode etc. The manufacturing date of your phone is also written somewhere on the sticker. And there is also IMEI number. However, it is not possible to make the box safe with everyone.
Find out by decoding the serial number
Brands like Apple, Asus, etc. put the date of manufacturing of the smartphone in the device serial number. Each number on these devices indicates a date, month or something that helps you find the production date. You can find the serial number in the About section of your phone. And from there you can know how old your phone is.
Find out from Phone Info App
If you are also an Android user, there are many phone info applications on the Google Play Store, with the help of which you can also find out when your mobile phone was made. However, there may be risk in such application, so we do not recommend that you use such application because third party ads are visible in it.
Know the production date with the help of manufacturing code
The fourth and last way is to use the manufacturing code. With the help of these codes, you can also know when your mobile was born. You can find out by typing the below mentioned code in the dialer.
If this method works, it will open a secret service menu on your phone. Now, go to the menu Version Info and then Hardware Version. To know the exact manufacturing date of your phone, go to Reading Manufacturing Date.
