No I dont think it is fake. You can check it if you are worried: http://www.******/verify/
The thing is vendors in China are buying from Xiaomi phones that are for chinese market, put on their modified ROM and sell them to countries where Xiaomi is not selling. This modified (custom) vendor ROM is really bad and risky and you dont get updates.

It is complicated but if you take your time and go through tutorials it will help you understand things better - recovery, fastboot, ROMs .... You may need it at some point anyway.

Hej prijatelj, tudi jaz sem iz Slovenije, midva pa kar po angleško. Od kod pa si? Bi mi res bil dobrodošel nasvet kako naj rešim tole zadevo, ker drugače sem z telefonom zadovoljen. Vse ostalo deluje ok. Ali lahko dobim kakšno teefonsko številko ali mail? moj mail: francisnovak123@gmail.com

As it looks the phone is not a fake one. I checked the code at link you sent it to me, and it is OK. This is the result of the verification:
The product you are checking is
Mi Mobile Phone

Živjo!
Sem začel coversation, kjer se lahko pogovarjava po slovensko, tukaj bom pa nadaljeval v angleščini, da bo še kdo drug imel kaj od tega. Za začetek:

First step:
If your phone is rooted install Partitions Backup from Google Play Store and use it to make backup of everything to SD. Transfer backup from SD to PC. Second app is Online Nandroid Backup, use this one too. There are never too many backups.

Basics:
To understand what you are doing here: http://en.miui.com/thread-207290-1-1.html go here:
http://tektab.com/2015/10/31/android-bootloaderfastboot-mode-and-recovery-mode-explained/
and also
http://www.slideshare.net/chrissimmonds/android-bootslides20

Basically bootloader can take you 3 different ways depending on which combination of buttons you press when you turn on your phone (there are other ways also like adb that comes with miflash ):

1. fastboot (vol down + power) -> you need PC (with drivers + fastboot tools --- miflash i.e.) connected via USB to phone (USB debugging enabled) and use command prompt to issue commands

2. recovery (vol up + power) -> you get graphical interface with less (stock recovery/ move trough menu with volume buttons, select with power button) or more (custom recovery like TWRP/ touchscreen works) options

3. system (power) = good "old" MIUI

Excercise 1:
Try to boot 1 (to exit fastboot you have to press power for a long time to turn off phone) and 2 (to exit recovery choose reboot system from the menu) for starters just to see how it looks.

Then go 3 (boot to system), enable developer options, enable USB debugging, install miflash on pc (from http://en.miui.com/thread-207290-1-1.html), connect phone to pc. Follow steps 8 and 9 from http://en.miui.com/thread-207290-1-1.html then type adb devices in command prompt. On phone there should pop up request RSA key fingerprint + always allow from this computer > allow. Response to adb devices should be serial number device. Now you are ready to boot 1 and 2 alternative way. Continue to:

Excercise 2:
To boot recovery - in command prompt type adb reboot recovery - recovery boots, nice isnt it, now reboot to system (use menu)

Then fastboot - Follow steps 8 and 9 from http://en.miui.com/thread-207290-1-1.html then type adb reboot bootloader - fastboot boots, nice isnt it, then type fastboot devices and response should be serial number fastboot. Now type fastboot reboot and phone reboots back to system. No pressing buttons needed.

Doing it:
If you managed this, installing TWRP should be a piece of cake like explained here: http://en.miui.com/thread-207290-1-1.html and here http://en.miui.com/thread-146299-1-1.html

Then making nandroid backup should be easy too: http://trendblog.net/android-guide-make-nandroid-backup-android-phone/

The rest everyone here knows the best: http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/how-to-update-upgrade-miui.15424/
