Do you really need the cellphone, or do you just want to fit in? If you are just trying to follow a trend, is it worth the price of a cellphone?

fit in 不是随大流,或赶时髦,而是“如果你周围的人都买了手机,而就一个人没买,那么就不被人所接受或产生隔阂”
这里是和“格格不入”相反的含义.

例如:The transferred student fitte in well with his classmates before long.
转学的学生很快就和其他班上同学打成一片。(很快就被同学所接纳)

"Fit in" means "be accepted by someone", not "pursuit fashionable things"
It can also be used in the following sentence:
A transplanted organ fits in with the body, which means it's not get rejected by the whole system.
