Default [Q] Authenticity of Galaxy Note 3

I would like to ask for your help guys who have more knowledges about gadgets.

Recently i bought an n9005 here in ksa but the store have given me a unit which is i think a europe version (because unlike my other friends the box of their n9005 have arabic writtings but mine is not and the seal was something euro).

My questions are:

1. How will i know that the note i bought is authentic?
(Though the person who sold it to me told me its original, but
Still i'd like to know how or what to check like serial numbers
at the back of the unit stickers or etc aside from the verbal
Assurance of the seller or is there any site like apple where to check the authenticity of iphones by entering the the unit serial number).

2. Can i use the phone in the philippines?

Please do help me guys. Need your pov and expertise..

To find out if it's authentic, your best bet would be to contact Samsung directly and ask them. They will have a full database of all units and serial numbers.

And this is the problem. No disrespect to this guy, but none of us can say for certain.
