It is expensive. One thing about an iPhone is it keeps value when reselling. An android phone will resell for little. I can sell and iPhone 3 for more than I would get for a good used model android phone.

 When a new model comes out, it is best to wait until the bugs have been worked out, iPhone 3 had wifi problems, 4 had antenna problems, 4s had battery problems, 5 has a problem with the soft trim and i think battery life. All these get addressed in time.

If You want a "face phone" - buy iPhone

If You want to sell that phone after some time - buy iPhone

But if You want a good working phone - You can find good Android phone with the sale features, quality of screen, similar speed etc...
for half of iPhone price, and cheaper to use if You want to use many applications.
And memory cards...
And exchangeable batteries...

Having an Android phone - You can also customize it to be "music phone", "internet phone", "game phone", "business phone"... or all that "phones", not paying a single kuai.
Try to do some "application makeover" in iThing... Wink

 

iPhones, are "legendary", "have face" (if somebody have not enough of own)....
But when You buy 5th - please remember to walk with the box in other hand, or buy some phone case with big "iPhone 5" on it. It will help people to recognise, that it is not "old and not so face-cool"4$ 

 

 

but maybe I'm just strange Bear?

if you have a 4s dont buy a 5. if you need to use good mapping software buy a 4s and stick w/ os5 (google maps was taken of the 5. puck you apple!) 

 

for those touting android phones, i agree. but we are in china. for some strange reason android phones do not come with translate, maps, and market. they only have the chinese ripoffs. unless you have an android phone from outside of china (or can get one) do not buy an android phone in china. 

 

iphones suck when it comes to putting files on it (you have to put the file into the app you will use it with, not flexible). it sucks when it comes to managing music (you can't ontrol it from your idevice it resets it to match itunes each time or simply erases it. you have no control over it) but with google maps and translate other dictionaries and the time waster games it is great. 

oh and by the way the battery sucks.

android phones for mainland china are useless

A: I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also us
A:I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also used several good job recruiters and I got new offers that way, too.The other (ET) jobs website is Dave's ESL Cafe, and if you'll Yahoo-gle "ESL job vacancies in China", you'll find more websites advertising ET job openings in China. You can replace 'ESL' with any job you're looking for ... Many reasons why no replies from job advertisers ... Chinese borders remain closed as one. Nobody will hire you, if you can't enter China. The other thing here is (was from 2009 - 2017), never stop sending your CV until you get an interview invitation ... In my time, I usually spoke to at least two schools in the same time and then I picked and signed the best contract .. Good luck! -- icnif77
