Just to let you all know, when I was in China, most of the VPN apps would not work at all. Except for two:

Opera VPN
Betternet VPN

Only those two seem to work. Of the two, Opera VPN is better because the other one, Betternet, contains too many popup ads. Also Opera VPN will automatically reconnect you if your connection goes off and comes on again. Until you switch it off. So that's a good feature to have. You can get both of them on Google Play Store. I just keep Betternet VPN as a backup, but it's probably not necessary.

PureVPN works OK for me. VPN generally works better on a PC than a phone. I've also got Connectify on my PC to share my wifi as a wireless router. It works really well although I had to fiddle around with it and I think antivirus software interferes with it.

A lot of sites work in China (Bing for instance) but it's irritating how many sites reference Google fonts or JavaScript files and thus are rendered useless. If you're building a website put all the files on your own server for f*cks sake!!!

If the chinese dont want you to use vpn or illegal softwares and sites dont.
