Go to the Google Playstore settings option to see if your Android device is Google Certified or not. You will see a menu called Device Certification at the bottom of the setting, where your device's authentication status will be provided. If your smartphone is certified by Google, you will see the written text here, otherwise it will be uncertified.

What is Device Certification?
Since the Android operating system is open source software, any smartphone maker can create an Android handset like that of Android Sources. In the world like this, many Android handset manufacturer companies have been formed in Bangladesh due to this availability of the Android operating system. Since every company is making handsets with its parts and configurations, the Android ecosystem has a lack of discipline. For this reason, Android handsets face many complaints, such as, applications do not run quite well, slow down, hang up, battery drain, virus attack etc.

For this reason, the Google Android EcoSystem has brought the device certification system in place to make discipline and strengthen security. Through this, each handset has to pass a compatibility test or parity test. Passing this test means that the handset is fully prepared for use by Google Mobile Service (GMS) Google Mobile Service (GMS). Google Playstore service and Google's other major Android apps such as Gmail, Maps, Photos, Chrome, YouTube, Drive together are called Google Mobile Service (GMS).

If your set is not certified?
That does not mean that your set is duplicate or not secure. This means that your company is not contractually contracted for Google's device certification exam. Or contracted but still no certification found in Compatibility Test . There is nothing to be disappointed; Some of the low-end brands available in the market have been found to be uncertified.

Note that smartphone manufecturer Walton and Symphony names in Bangladesh are listed on the Google Certified Manufactures list. That means companies are using Android operating software as their two Google partner companies in their handset. Find out your handset manufacturer's name in the following link:
