Hi all,

I recently aquired a used Z1 and wanted to check if it is indeed only "1 Month old".
Is there a possibility to check this? Somewhere in the firmware or with a serial# etc?

Regards

Look for this Number at the back side somewhere in smallish letters:-
Inside the micro sd card slot will be a sliding sticker. use your long nails or a pointed screwdriver whatever, to pull it out

14W15 (as an example) that will be 2014 week 15

Thanks

14W04 (on the FCC sticker)
I bought it in September, so it makes sense, thanks for telling me.
Also it had 103 charge cycles on the battery, that also might work with 3 months (~90 days).

Would you be able to provide a photo of the 'sliding sticker'? I'm not finding it.
I'd rather not remove the back plate to view the info sticker unless I really have to.

Only got an HTC one m7 around in the office so sorry for picture quality.. .
And sorry it was not the memory card flap, it is ACTUALLY THE SIM CARD FLAP WHERE THE DETAIL SLIDER IS HIDDEN - take a look:-

I wonder why Google didn't show me that info page in the first place when I searched. Heh. Thank you, both, for helping me out on this. I almost hard the darnedest time seeing it.
Looks like this device was built in late week 40 of 2013, although it was only unboxed earlier this month - as mentioned by it's previous owner. Though somehow I doubt that because the left loud speaker was inoperable, unless that was a manufacturing defect...
