Love the idea of getting the Apple iPhone X early, but hate paying the full price, which can be anywhere from around P60,000 (roughly $1,183) to P80,000 ($1,578) in the Philippines? Then consider getting it from a carrier instead.
Globe Telecom and Smart Communications have revealed their postpaid plans for the 10th-anniversary iPhone, which will be available in the Philippines beginning December 1. The preorder period is from today, November 24.

By now, the iPhone X should be familiar to many. Bold redesign, with glass on both sides. Vertical back-facing cameras, tack-sharp selfie camera. Super-tall OLED display. That infamous notch on the front.

Of course, because it doesn’t come cheap off-contract in the Philippines, with the base (read: 64GB) iPhone X hitting the streets with an official P64,490 ($1,276) sticker price, local carrier plans require a considerable monthly payment to pay off the device.
It doesn’t matter which carrier you prefer, or which postpaid offer you’re eyeing, you’ll probably end up spending more than you intended on an upgrade. You can, for example, subscribe to Smart’s iPhone Plan 2999 ($59) and still cough up P24,000 ($475) as payment for the iPhone X. Globe is offering the 64GB iPhone X for P2,499 ($49) per month — which is nothing to sneeze at — after an upfront payment of P31,200 ($617).
Below you’ll find the full list of mainstream offers from Globe and Smart, along with their corresponding initial cash payments. Smart’s iPhone X plans tend to be cheaper, though it bears noting that Globe’s plans offer flexibility, as opposed to fixed data and call allocations. For full control of your monthly call, text, and data inclusions, you can opt for a Smart All-In plan.
