    Getting a secondhand phone for my kid

    I've been struggling for a while on this, I know it's very common for HK kids to have an ipad or a parent's phone in hand, but if I want to get my kid a phone, I'm thinking of a secondhand one that's cheaper. Makes no sense to get a 6 year-old and iphone X, so probably going to go android and pick out something from a reputable shop. I came across a website that sells them but I'm not sure if I should just head to a shop in Mongkok for one. Any suggestions?

    if you are on an apple phone, you are better off getting your kid an apple phone for parental control, find me, and share subscription services.

    depends on what's the purpose of the phone. i'm not sure it's the right time for a 6 year old to have their own smart phone, which most likely to be used unsupervised.
    if he/she needs a phone to make a call, old school nokia would do the job very well.

    Why would a 6 year old need a phone?

    I got a used Ipone SE (old version) for under 900 $ via carousel. Reason was parental control is easier.
    But she is 10...
