I bought 6 mobile phones for myself and my friends in the past 3 months. However, I felt to be cheated after I double checked the prices between Mainland China and HK just now.

For example: I bought 2 Iphone4s in mainland China lately.

Let's check the price in Apple homepage of mainland China:
Apple store: iPhone 4S 32GB RMB 5,888..
Let's check the price in Apple homepage of Hong Kong:
Apple store: iPhone 4S 32GB HK$ 5,888 = RMB 4,797
Let's check the price in Apple homepage of Singapore:
iPhone 4S 32GB
S$ 1,088.00 = RMB 5396.8
Let's check the price in Apple homepage of Australia:
iPhone 4S 32GB
S$ 1,088.00 = RMB 5546



What happened? Is Apple company cheating mainland Chinese?

If you someone is dumb enough to pay almost 6 thousand rmb for a simple mobile phone, then it serves her or him right!

I have lived without a mobile for years and don't miss the damn gadget at all!
