It's important before ordering accessories, knowing which phone or smart watch model it is to get the perfect fit.
It can sometimes be distinguish by a final digit, a letter, a year etc so it is easy to get it wrong, as it usually changes something on the phone.
Here we have listed a few different ways to find the model number of your phone.
Some android phones may use special model ID, take this number and do a search on Google.
1. See phone settings
One way to check your phone's model name and number is to use the phone itself. Go to the Settings or Options menu, scroll to the bottom of the list and select “About Phone”, “About Device” or similar.
The device name and model number should be listed in the next view, eg model ID.
Some phones allow you to select "more" to view the entire list.
2. Check the phone and its packaging
It may sound obvious, but you should be able to find something mention about the phone or its model number on the phone.
Some phones may have a small white sticker on the back.
The same sticker is also found in some older phones, usually inside the battery cover. (possibly behind a removable battery).
There may also be information on the packaging itself.
If nothing appears as a potential model name, try googling the words or numbers you can find.
3. Check your purchase receipt
Regardless of whether you purchased the phone online, or in the store, you will normally receive an order receipt that will contain your model number.
4. Check the Bluetooth name
Another way to get a clue to the phone's name is through Bluetooth.
Each Bluetooth device has a pre-set name that it uses to connect.
By connecting to another smartphone or device, you can see which device name is listed.
5. Identify your Apple phone / tablet
Need to identify which iPhone you have?
Check out Apple's excellent support page where all the product model numbers are listed.
On their tablets (iPads) you will find the model number on the back.
6. Older phones
Some older phones have their model numbers printed on a sticker attached to the phone's battery compartment.
Turn off the phone, remove the back cover, and then remove the battery to see the sticker.
7. See Category description
