The guy at 2:10 looks like he was going to arrest you 🤣
Oh shoot! At 3:41 too! I'm e getting concerned for you 😳
Oh my gosh! At 4:53 🤣
This is like an adventure movie 😯
I loved your video, bud. And you earned a new subscriber. So much fun watching you on this video.
TMOBILE works everywhere!~ I was tired of changing SIMS wherever I went. Verizon and AT&T suck when it comes to foreign travel. T-Mobile greeted me and worked everywhere I went Including Afghanistan. . . .that should tell you something right there. No extra fees either. all included in $70/month
The "dangers" are nothing our government hasn't been and will continue to do. Fear your phones now folks. If the Chinese know your pizza order we are all screwed. So we are stuck with inferior crap because no competition
Misinformed video. Top Chinese smartphone brands offer great value, Play Store and in some cases unique design (Mi Mix). They also offer Global versions with all the network bands available. All in all, the first 7-8 mins of the video are misinformative at best.
I have no idea how I found your channel, but holy hell I love it. I have been bin watching your videos learning Chinese Culture from an English Speaking Persons Point of View. Great Stuff Man, keep up the great videos.
If anything, chinese smartphones nowadays are the only good phones. At least they usually stick a reasonable price tag that will blow japanese or other known brands in the west out of the water.
Buying a phone on aliexpress is safe and usually comes with all languages.
1:32 this is not true. you can download google apps manually. if you dont like the OS it comes with you can just install a new one. That's what I did with my chinese phone. just wiped it and installed lineageOS edit: oops didnt realize you were mentioning that later.
Well i'm watching this on Golden Huawei Tablet bought per Internet (propably comes from Hong Kong) and it's Awesome! I deactivated Chinese software and install Google - it's like Tablet bought in Europe.
A few of the networks in Australia have picked up the Oppos.
Got an A73 for my mother for $207 AU on special. It's locked to a network but she is with a reseller, so no problems there. Still only about $350 AU unlocked.
I also like that they give you a cover with the phone, basic but better than nothing since non apple/samsung covers
Hopefully all goes well.
On a related note, it looks like ZTE will be rebranding themselves soon ;)
It is amazing that you can walk around with all the distractions and still stay with the story. Very well done, I do not think I could do it the same like you did, it would drive me nuts. What is your trick to stay focussed on the subject and to block all the noise and distractions around you? Just wondering. Nice informative video as always, thumbs up.
I bumped on your videos and you kinda made me feel safe to travel to the east now. I love your tips. My dream is to come there and stay for as long as I can! As a European Greek-German, I was always having the feeling that in China is very beautiful but too dangerous to travel to, on the matter of the language barrier, even in the thought of being there and not being able to communicate was giving me chills. But now I know how thing are done there and I hope that next year I will be on these streets enjoying a new culture! Thank you for your effort and time!
You are like uncle magnet. haha... I can clearly imagine you loosing your shit and beating a few of them to teach them to get off your back. Why don't you start shipping best hardware software Chinese phones to US or India?
US telecom monopoly is no different from that of China, even worse. There is much scam going on with all these Chinese carriers too however the services simply beat those US counterparts in terms of cost and convenience. In China you pay as much as 1yuan per 800M data which can actually replace lan line internet. It is laughable that in a Communist country the market place(excl great ff) of telecom and internet service is way better than an ‘awesome’ developed country US and funny to see ppl’ great tolerance of the ripoff of scam shithole like Verison things.
+serpentza take i think you didn't understand my point of view.what I was trying to say that show some good stuff about the country as well ,your videos have a negative vibe about China and I totally agree that what you saying is true but which country doesn't have negative things but it's good to show both sides .I didn't meant you are scared or coward sorry didn't meant to hurt you I am.big fan of you but I think you should make videos on positive side of China aswell.
Ulefone (I just bought the Armor 2 like 1 month ago) has a vanilla Android 7 (just with a toolkit for all the sensors that are under the hull) and I haven't had a problem with it at all here in Germany.
Was that guy a police man?? The ! Guy. I was rolling over the audio cause it reminded me of my old nintendo game which as we all know was the chi-comm's greatest export lol. But yea was he a po po??
O never mind I watched the little longer and saw that yes that is in fact the security guard or what we call in the USA flashlight cop 🤣🤣🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Wtf?that's hilarious- Oppo sounds likethe way a native Chinese w no English fluency says Apple- I got best phone Oppo I chunes- Micwosof, Googo, Praystation, Sirrikhan varrey-love the Chinese, even love is made in China now- me Chinese, me play trick, me put clorox on my shimshim, ancient chinese secret
