Aside from anticipating Christmas, it is the time of the year again when we get to see and touch the newly released mobile phones from Apple. And of course, it is also this time when we research for great deals to get these most-awaited handsets.


With the holidays approaching, we are already starting to buy Christmas gifts for our family and friends — add to that our everyday needs (and wants). Understandably, a one-time payment for an iPhone can be quite heavy on the pocket. And because my iPhone has been part of my everyday life – to reach my family and friends, to capture special moments, to update my social media accounts, and to keep my schedule, I thought of sharing with you guys too how to get great deals for the new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus without breaking the bank.


But first, have you thought of the color you want? Ladies, sorry Rose Gold is out BUT I think the new shade of pink is even better! It is gold with a hint of pink but still not Rose Gold. Yes, it is a bit confusing, but it is more of what we now call “Millennial Pink”!


Yup, it is that pretty kind of pink! Now, how to get it?

Smart will be launching the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on November 17. You can pre-order now (which I highly recommend since we know how long the lines can get) at any Smart Stores or at the Smart Online Store.

But how much?

Smart releases iPhone plans that are easy on the pocket and no cash out, technically. Subscribers only need to spend a minimal initial monthly service fee of PHP 2,699 (Plan 1999 + PHP 700 for the device) for the iPhone 8 and PHP 2,999 (Plan 1999 + PHP 1,000 for the device) for the iPhone 8 Plus.

SMART iPhone 8 Plus

And if you are asking a TIP from a pro, you can also get the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB with a monthly service fee of PHP 2,699 (Plan 1,499 + PHP 1,200 for the device).

As if the monthly plans I gave are not enough, here are more reasons why getting the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus from Smart makes it a great deal:

Charge to bill

There is NO NEED to do a one-time device cash-out or credit card payment to get your iPhone. You can experience the new iPhone without breaking the bank by applying a postpaid iPhone plan from Smart. Simply charge to your monthly bill the total plan inclusive of the device cost. Payment of the Smart iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices for plans 1499, 1999, 2499 and 2999 can be paid in easy 24 monthly payments. And yes, there’s no need for a credit card!

More data

To maximize the features of an iPhone, having more data allowance is definitely a must! If you scrimp on data, you might not be able to get your iPhone’s worth. This is why Smart gives 1GB more data than competitor on hero offers (as mentioned above). On top of that, you enjoy free VAS (Value Added Services)/app that’s interchangeable monthly and that won’t eat up your monthly data volume allocation. Some favorite apps commonly used daily are unli data in volume. These apps are FB, FB Messenger, Waze, Whatsapp, Line, and Viber. Now isn’t that good to know? I’m a big user of Whatsapp and Waze so I definitely need this freebie!

Lower handset cost

Smart offers the latest iPhones for so much less. After you finished paying for the device for 24 months, you only need to pay the monthly service fee. (eg. If you got the PHP 2,699 hero offer for iPhone 8, you will only need to pay PHP 1,999/month after 24 months)

Powered by fastest LTE

Of course, you can only maximize your iPhone with Open Signal’s fastest LTE Network. Smart continues to cover the country with LTE connectivity plus built-in all-net calls across all plans.

Gadget shield

Accidents happen – no matter how much we want to avoid it. Your new iPhone can slip from your hand, can get wet while enjoying the beach, or worse, can get stolen. You will never know. This is why it is good to get your gadget insured and Smart gives one month of this for FREE.

Anyway, enough of my tips! Might as well pre-order the #SmartiPhone8 through Smart Online Store ( or Smart Stores nationwide. Both #SmartiPhone8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available in stores on Friday, November 17.
