In China, people has a mixed reception to iPhone. A satirical iPhone 6 add posted to Sina Weibo with the slogan “Bigger Than a Kidney.” a reference to the story of a Chinese teenager who sold one of his kidney to buy an iPad and an iPhone in 2011. iPhone means something more than a phone for part of the Chinese obviously.
But which more sarcastic is that China was not on the list of countries that would receive initial shipments of the new devices. “I’ve got my kidney all ready to go and you tell me the mainland has to wait? That’s straight-up prejudice,” wrote Fan Wei, a media consultant and influential Weibo user.
So I made this phone case to encourge people think of what an expensive good in trend means to them. Or just simply what iPhone means to them.
