I would go with Calama for the year-round pleasant afternoon temps. Even though they have cold nights all year you're virtually guaranteed an enjoyable afternoon 365 days per year.
Which is just how I like it, so Turpan wins for me!

Calama..... Turpan has waaaay too hot summers and there is no point to daytime temperatures well below freezing most of the winter if there's no snow to enjoy. Calama would have nice, frosty mornings in winter and pleasantly warm days year round. Boring but beats extreme heat.

Calama, and it's not even close. More comfortable temperatures all year. Not too hot. Excellent nighttime temperatures. A great place to have your fireplace burning and enjoy hot drinks any night of the year, a big plus for me. Turpan's summers are way too hot. Its winters are colder than ideal, too, without much snow to make up for it either. Turpan is certainly an interesting climate, though--I will give it that--but I wouldn't want to live in it.

Not that you'd see the "white" with the low humidities . I liked the feel of the air there, as well as at San Pedro. My late father would have benefited from an arid or desert climate.
