Q: Where do you get English phone apps in China?

I'm looking at upgrading to my first smartphone. I have set my sights on the Samsung S3, for various reasons I am not an Apple fan and when it comes to phones I am using my PC / Laptop mantra of getting the best and latest you can afford at the time as it will be out of date next week!

 

However, as an expat teacher in China, with limited Chinese, but studying the language hard, I obviously want some English 'speaking' apps, most of them will be ( I expect) language based. Any tips?

I download apps from my computer at android.com.  My favorite app is Google Translate and AK Notpad.  (I use the notepad to store notes containing directions and common questions written in Chinese.)

 

And as far as a phone is concerned, you might want to hold off for a couple of weeks.  I heard the Galaxy Note II is coming out very soon.

 My LG 3D phone was bigger (than an iPhone) which made it easier for someone to steal.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
