iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Postpaid Plans Comparison: Smart vs Globe

Both Smart and Globe has released their postpaid plans already. Since I was confused by the plan matrix of Globe upon first look, here's a better view of the postpaid plans from both Smart and Globe for the newest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.

Also included in the table is the "Total Acquisition Cost" under the column "2-year lock-in total plus unit cost". The amount in that column equates to the plan cost times 24 months plus cash-out price of the unit. I used 24-months as the standard because that is the usual length telcos here offer their units.

Globe iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Postpaid Plans


Side-by-side comparison

iPhone 6 Postpaid Plans: Smart vs Globe

iPhone 6 Plus Postpaid Plans: Smart vs Globe
For prepaid comparison:
Globe Smart
iPhone 6 16GB 37,500 36,700
iPhone 6 64GB 43,000 42,300
iPhone 6 128GB 48,500 48,000
iPhone 6+ 16GB 43,000 42,300
iPhone 6+ 64GB 48,500 48,000
iPhone 6+ 128GB 54,000 53,600

Take note that ALL postpaid plans of Globe do not come with unlimited mobile data anymore. For Smart, we've heard that they will still provide unlimited surfing but might put a limit on downloads and streaming (to be confirmed). In the meantime, I, personally am enjoying unlimited data still.

With prepaid, Smart wins in all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus variants as the cheapest.

Also, take advantage of the amortized plans from Smart which offers 0% interest. For Plan 3000, the 3,000 pesos cash out will be waived if you get the 64GB iPhone 6 or the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus.

For a quick analysis on the comparison, we do suggest you check out our other post below:
