Shopping for mobile phones

Shopping for mobile phones deserves to be pointed out in a separate topic.

alloBuying a mobile phone will be necessary for everybody who comes to Ukraine and intends to stay here for some while. Why is it so? Because it will not be long before everybody who arrives to Ukraine finds out that local mobile carriers don’t support their mobile phones and the only way they can communicate is through roaming which is quite expensive. In other words, foreign mobile phones which were bought outside of Ukraine don’t work with Ukrainian SIM-cards. In order to b able to communicate freely in Ukraine each foreigner has to buy a new mobile phone.

Most of the mobile phones which are sold on the market are fake Chinesemobiluck imitations of the famous brands. HTC, Huawei, Lenovo, LG, Nokia, Samsung and Sony are the brand representing mobile phones on Ukrainian market.  Imitation maintains original design but only from the outside. They look like real mobile phones but they don’t possess original qualities and hence low price. Usually such phones, even though they look like Androids or iPods, in fact in their functionality can only perform such functions as messaging, making calls and recording pictures. How to tell the real phone from the fake one? Real brand phones, Androids and iPods, have relevant price.
