    "I have two copy of this phone."

    "I have two copy of this phone."

    I would say I have got two brands of this phone.


    What is the correct way of saying that?

    I'm sorry, I don't quite understand what it is exactly that you are trying to say. Can you provide some more context, please?
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    I mean that you have two similar mobile phones. Two brands sharing similarity. They were made by the same company. Thanks.

    Re: "I have two copy of this phone."

    No, "brands of this phone" is definitely wrong.

    Do you mean something like "I have two phones, both of this model"?
    Or "My two phones are both this model"?

    Edit: Oops. Got busy and forgot to click on "post."

    Knowing that, I'd suggest "I have two [name of brand] phones."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
