I used several apps to check my phone's Android(Device) ID and each gives a different number.

I followed the link below


I tried keying in *#*#8225#*#* into the dialer but it won't work for my Huawei phone.

The battery is built-in. According to the link above a device can have many IDs. Any reason(s) why a phone can have many device IDs and so which is the correct one?

See the attached screen shots from different apps.

Which Android version did you use?

You should see your IMEI under: settings -> about phone

Also for what did you need it? And i also recommend that you hide this private number here // edit the screenshots.

I'm using Android 10 for my Huawei phone

According to the below article it's seems the IMEI and the Android Device IDs are different although they are unique numbers to id the phone. So far I have not factory reset my phone.


I just checked my IMEI from my phone and it has 2x 15 NUMBERS ONLY. Not alpha numeric as displayed in the screenshots captured by using apps
