Cellphone buying

I've been looking into replacing my phone with something sort of like a smartphone, but I haven't jumped on that bandwagon just yet.

But I thought I would share some of my research with you.

#1. Phone in Israel are way overpriced

#2. Second hand cellphones are risky, they often don't work right, or have little battery life, etc

#3. People have been buying no name phones from Aliexpress and having them shipped here via regular mail, and paying just a fraction of the local price for similar phones!


 I don't know if I'll actually buy something right now, but I'd love to hear if any of you decide to order a new phone. Please tell me the best deal you've found!

  1. I didn't get a super cheap deal, nor did I buy mine in the states or from one of those online specials. What I did do was get a less advanced of a good brand in a store, actually a chain, that has given me service and answered questions when I needed help. The friend who sent me to a great optician/eyeglass deal, Michlelet Hadassa, insists that without easy to access service you can lose more money than you save.
