Default How to identify a genuine HTC One?

I've been offered a Dual SIM HTC One, however I don't know the seller.

Are there a couple of test to check it's a genuine phone rather then a knock off copy?

Perhaps a google app that checks the processor and resolution or other identifiers?

Quality of build is subjective so that won't do it for me.

I guess id ask to check the phone and see the contents of the "about phone" part. Maybe run a benchmark app and see if everything is fine. antutu or quadrent willbe able to tell you the processor info for sure. Make sure both speakers work too. lol

If you have the chance to connect it to a PC run fastboot getvar all and verify that the model numbers match up to legit versions of the phone.
