After a while of researching I have decided to buy this SD card, 2 of them, from a trusted e-commerce site. Unfortunately, they were out of stock so they have passed one of these orders to another seller which I did not hear the name of. In the end, I ended up with two slightly different cards. One came from the trusted store (I'll call it Card 1) and had the model number MB-MC32GA/TR. Living in Turkey, this is normal. H2TestW reports 26 MB/s write and 40 MB/S read. All normal, in sight, verified with UFD Validation Utility. The problem is the second one. It has the model number MB-MC32GA/APC instead and has a "Made in Taiwan" sign on the back of the card (as opposed to the "Made in Philippines" sign on the packaging) and H2TestW reports 14/20 MB/s write/read. The front images seems all same except the black band is significantly bolder and Plus is written as (+) in Card 2.
The backplate of Card 2 says:
(the labeling is parallel to the pins, as opposed to card 1 which had perpendicular label)
Made in Taiwan
While the Card 1 says:
MB-MC32G (SD Verification Available tick sign)
Made in Philippines
I need help seeing if the Card 2 is a counterfeit, since I have called the Samsung local support and they simply said "there is no verification way possible for SD cards, you have to check with the seller" (Like a seller would say "Yeah, my item is a counterfeit") so if there is a way for me to get a confirmation from a Samsung representative in the way if it's fake, it'd be very helpful. I have included the front plates of the cards. The right side is Card 2.1 is the original one. Notice the difference in Plus and size of the features point.
