星空手机衣坊 [网易辽宁省丹东市网友]: (responding to above)

Fuck off, [they’ve] left two girls for their male compatriots, and that’s [behaving like] Lei Feng [sacrificing oneself for others].

龙德云 [网易广东省汕头市网友]:

The first motherfucking picture blinded brother’s [referring to self] titanium alloy eyes.

    awww there is a fake Eiffel tower in the background, how romantic

  • JayJay

    An iPhone 6 gets you a kissing competition. I wonder what it would take for a live orgy show.

    • Some guy

      I reckon the bigger sized iphone6 would do it.

      • JayJay

        That’s more like a blow job competition. At least an iPhone 6 + and the new watch thingy… maybe with Tim Cook autographs.

        • YourSupremeCommander

          I know what a blow job competition is like, but what about a steve job competition?

  • Ken Morgan

    Re-the comment about gay men FOOLS! Gay men are great! because a gay men reduce the amount of competition for women!

    • donscarletti

      Read the comment above by “星空手机衣坊”, comparing gay men with Lei Feng (though no gay man would be caught dead wearing a hat like his).

      This proves that having gay men to leave more ladies is a Chinese invention, otherwise how could the feudal elites have managed 4900 years of polygamous pussyfarming without a civil war every 10?

      • Rick in China

        “polygamous pussyfarming”

        Epic description of the thousands of years of ‘history’ :D

      • JayJay

        Eunuchs are the answer to that problem. They cut their dicks off thus enabling polygamous pussyfarming for the elite few.

      • Kai

        And the allteration award of the day goes to: “polygamous pussyfarming”!

      • Insomnicide

        Comment of the year right there.

      • Lei Feng’s Hat

        I second that notion…

    • Still, they show rebellion for lust, and giving up eternal life, living in sin instead.

      • Hdhdjhdjd

        Dude not everyone is religious

      • Irvin

        Better to live one year as a polygamous pussyfarmer than forever as a monk.

    • Andreas Meyer

      Seems you need that reduction.

  • How did they determine the winner…
    duration, style, audience applause?

    • Irvin

      The last pair of idiots to realize it isn’t worth it gets the phone.

  • YourSupremeCommander

    Pix #3, was there any gay penetration?

  • Joe

    Well, the comments aren’t worthwhile but it’s nice to see from the photos that some gay couples are not afraid to show affection in public (even if it’s for a fucking iPhone). I don’t know much about Zhejiang but I would have guessed you’d only really see this kind of thing in Shanghai.

    • Irvin

      Though most chinese are homophobic, the good thing is: we’re not also religious. Therefore, we may cringe inside when we see two men kiss, but you wouldn’t see us holding signs that says “God hate fags”.

      • SongYii

        Actually, discussions about homosexuality have come up in my classes, and most of my students (especially girls, but also many boys) openly defend homosexuals from ridicule and believe gay marriage should be legal in China.

  • DC

    if only the 2 chicks in the last picture were really going at it…that be hot..

    • Alex Dương

      What if you added one cup?

      • DC

        only if they slurp it up..

      • SongYii

        Thats it, (smacks table) two girls one cup iPhone giveaway, in the park, tomorrow at noon. Be there, get yours.

  • Stefan

    The iPhone 6 doesn’t even look good…the 5S looks way better.
    And camera sticks out, how am I supposed to put the phone on the table without it scraping the lens?
    The rounded edges makes it look cheap.

    Why buy the 6 when you can have the 5S?
    I’ve just ordered the 5S gold now.

    • Rick in China

      The 6 is WAY nicer. The rounded edges make it feel so much smaller/lighter than it really is, and the camera sticking out is not only not-noticable in normal use (like, I don’t even think about it), but if you plan to get a case of sorts it’s irrelevant – if the options were to have a slightly thicker phone and the camera not sticking out, I’d keep it the way it is. “scraping the lens” – first, if your table is so covered in shit that you’ll routinely lay your phone down and have something wedged between the lens and the table, your problem is with your dirty table, not the phone – second, if the lens was *perfectly flat* in relation to the rest of the back, when you lay it down, the same piece of dirt in the exact same place would have the exact same effect – third, the lens is sapphire, and wont scratch, period. Find some instances of people having scratched up iPhone6 lenses…

      Then again, you ordered a 5S GOLD! Wow. That thing screams 土豪 through a megaphone..who in their right mind gets a gold trimmed phone, so gaudy.

      • codfilet

        My 6 is just the perfect size in an Otterbox Defender case. It really felt too thin and slippery before. This phone really does need a protective case.

      • SongYii

        coke dealers and paint huffers buy gold trim phones

    • donscarletti

      When I first saw pictures of the iPhone6, I didn’t like it in the slightest. I thought it was shaped like a Samsung and the size of a Samsung and I wanted neither. I remember disparaging it a lot.

      When I first held one in my hand, I realized how much off the mark I was. It is simply a beautiful feeling thing. The plus is a still little bit stupid though, although not quite as stupid as I originally believed.

      I wish I could buy an iPhone6, but my iPhone5 is in good condition, so I don’t really have an excuse.

      • Rick in China

        I got both the 6 and 6+ for me and my wife (respectively) – ordered immediately via site to deliver @ my office in Brisbane, and had someone bring ’em back with me the following weekend..we had them in our grubby little hands back when people were spending ridiculous amounts on taobao and the like on phones they wouldn’t propose to deliver until a week or two later, even. We decided that if the 6+ was so ridiculous, we’d just flip it and get another 6 brought over. I, like you, wanted a normal 6 so it would fit in my jeans pocket and not make me look like I’ve got an iPad strapped to my cheek when I am on the phone, however, once using it, felt “fuck, now mine feels small.” even after upgrading to the 6 itself made me think “this is so much larger”. The 6 is absolutely perfect size for me to 1 hand…another half inch and I’d be unable to fully 1 hand it without awkwardness, but the 6+ is great for women who have purses or whatever and don’t want to necessarily hold on to their phone (ie. use earphone/mic when talking).

  • x1sfg

    I wonder how much money I can make if I buy ten iPhones, and have a raffle with tickets sold for 200 kuai

  • FYIADragoon

    Always funny to see the kind of idiots that Apple attracts. I’d think due to the larger lung capacity, the gay male couple should have a better shot at this competition.

  • SongYii

    so many anti-gay comments… i didnt realize there were so many closeted homosexuals in china.

    • Alex Dương

      With 1.3 billion people in China, it seems normal for there to be many gays in terms of absolute number.

      • SongYii

        missing the point, as usual…

        • Alex Dương

          If your point is homophobia in China, do you still keep up with the news back home? The fact that that’s news in 2014 says that we really aren’t a leader when it comes to equal treatment under the law without regard to sexual orientation.

          • SongYii

            the joke is that people who post hate messages about homosexuals as in the translated comments are really closeted homosexuals

          • Alex Dương

            There seems to be some evidence that homophobia is correlated with homosexuality. So again, with 1.3 billion people in China, why wouldn’t you expect a lot of gays? And considering that it was only very recently that gay marriage got a big push in the U.S., does homophobia in China, from straight people or closeted gays, really surprise you?

          • Ken Morgan

            I would find it funny if China went the way of the Forever War as a means of population control!

          • Ruaraidh

            What a book that is. Shame he backed off a bit on the ending though.

          • Kai

            LoL, shame I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Have it downloaded and everything.

  • B*tches, Leave

    China and India need more gays right now

  • Boris

    Love the last two comments.

  • Surfeit

    Those homophobic remarks lack any real slanderous pnash.

  • AbC

    “Do you people not have kidneys?”
    Damn right! If you can’t afford it, get the iPhone the proper ‘Chinese’ way! A kissing comp is against Mao’s teachings, leave it to the Koreans.

  • SongYii

    im so tired of the ‘if you dont like blacks, you must be secretly black’ statement.

    see how retarded that sounds?

    you cant distinguish ‘wish’ from ‘be’ or race from sexual orientation.


    • Chris

      oops. did you just imply being gay was a choice? because no. just no.

      • SongYii

        no… the point is that one cant be hidden or feigned. the half wit before you declared that because chinese hate blacks, they wish they were black, the same way i declared homophobes are often closeted gays. the two are not analagous. you cant be black and pretend not to be, unless under peculiar circumstances i *suppose.* moreover, being homophobic (closeted or straight) is not a wish to be gay, its a response to other circumstances (psychological, in particular).

        • Rick in China

          Nuance is lost on the feebleminded. When you get tired of explaining yourself, moving on becomes the only choice on forums. :D

  • Chris

    the country with the most gays in the world people…i give you China.

  • Alex Dương

    Lot’s of people find expressions of homo-sexual love revolting. This doesn’t mean that they hate gays or fear them.

    Why would they find it revolting if they don’t hate gays?

    • Irvin

      Revolting is involuntary, hate is a choice.

      One can be revolt by homosexuality but still support the freedom to choose.

  • SongYii

    I did not equate them, the commenter to whom I was replying equated them. I disputed that. So I have no idea why you are repeating back to me what I said unless you just didn’t bother reading it.

    Take a look at the comments from the Chinese netizens…. some pretty obnoxiously and needlessly hateful.

    Someone who has confidence and reassuredness in their own sexuality (or any psycho or physiological condition belonging to them) has no need to criticize others sexuality. Sure, it doesn’t mean they’re full blown whoo-hoo fabulous gay, but I think anyone who says “oh, fuck the gays, they’re going to destroy society and they are so disgusting” is probably curious about either homosexuality or some other sexual behavior that they resent in themselves. I don’t think its very rare… in fact, I think its really fucking common.

  • Rosemon Calvin Pilot

    Ok….but what would they do for a Klondike Bar

    Who won?
