    So, I was considering buying the S4 as I lost my phone last week, but you guys convinced me to buy the 5S instead, and I just got mine today. Yippee! Here are a few pictures. I'll continue adding more as I set it up. Tell me if you want me to add particular pics.

    (I'm in China for the mid-autumn festival holiday, which is where I bought the phone.)

    I assume that's the leather case? Would like to see it on & get your opinion on how it fits...

    Receipt appears to be in Japanese so maybe he isn't in Cali.

    The fingerprint sensor is barely noticeable on the space grey model. It basically looks black.

    The case is not worth the price in my opinion. It feels rather cardboardy. It does cover the edges of the phone though (the edges of the case are deeper than the phone creating a concave shape).

    Agreed. Would like to see how much of a lip there is.

    it looks fake to me, cuz the receipt showing Chinese letter and the back of the iPhone has the Chinese letter sticker as well, the phone on the desktop showing Chinese letter on the keypad as well, show us some more picture on your hand.

    I got the galaxy s4 last week, i have 1 week left to play around with it. I havent stuck my sim in the phone, just been using wifi. Anyways ive had every iphone except 2g, and will NOT be getting the 5s. I was so bored of the os and always having to jailbreak the phone. I will be keeping the galaxy, and im glad i switched. Only thing i miss is the mail, will try k9, and i liked how i could access my camera quickly right off of the lock screen.

    You could always access the camera from the lockscreen with the i5. You have access to more utilities from the lockscreen with ios7 now as well. That being said, you do have access to more things on the S4 through the notification center with the ability to actually click on them to either see more info or take you directly to the application/utility, or slide to the left to access your favorite apps.

    Well, with taxes u actually paid more for your unlocked iphone 5S than you would've in the States. But you got it first so that could offset the premium you paid. The "american" tax that China tags onto American products is one the highest in the world. Would you buy a Louis Vuitton or Kiehl's in China? Not if you could help it.


    I could imagine there are no lines or demand for the iPhone. China is still very much an Android country.

    Good on ya.

    Mmm... Looks like I should go back and get the leather cover. It looks mighty good.
