For those who like to buy it unlocked, it’s available for PhP 15,990 through Huawei Experience Stores, Lazada, and authorized retailers nationwide. But, the new midrange phone is also available on postpaid from Globe and Smart.

You can avail of the Nova 3i through Plan 599 on both telcos, but the phone is available for free starting from Plan 1499. If you don’t want to shell out a large amount of cash to get a new phone, you can choose between the two plans:

Since both Globe and Smart offer the Huawei Nova 3i for free on Plan 1499, the choice now is about which telco plan caters to your needs. Let’s break them down.

When it comes to SMS, both let you text anyone with no limits and have a standard 24-month contract. What differs between the two plans are their call and data offers.

If you rely a lot on voice calls, Smart’s plan allows you to make 50 minutes of calls to all networks. But, if most of your contacts are under Globe, their plan offers unlimited calls to any Globe or TM subscriber.

As for data, Globe’s 8GB allowance is free to use on any website and is good for a mobile hotspot. Smart, on the other hand, only offers 5GB of open data but gives you extra 10GB for video streaming on YouTube, iFlix, Fox+, and iWantTV. Keep in mind that subscriptions to paid services are not included in the plan.

Speaking of paid subscriptions, Globe throws in six months of Disney Life and three months of Spotify Premium with 1GB of extra data. Free data access to Facebook is also part of Globe’s freebies, although it’s capped at 1GB per month.

You can check out the postpaid product page on Globe and Smart’s website to apply.
