Published

on

Huawei officially launched the Nova 3i in the Philippines over the weekend. 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:

Globe
Smart

Device Fee Free Free
Monthly Fee PhP 1,499 PhP 1,499
Contract Period 24 months 24 months
Total Cost PhP 35,976 PhP 35,976

 

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.

LG Singapore launches Lazada store, offers discounts

Up to 25% savings can be had on purchases

Published

on

Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more and more tech brands are relying on online stores to reach their customers. LG Singapore is the latest brand to go online with the opening of its flagship Lazada store. To mark the opening, it is discounting its appliances and devices for a limited time.

There’s a wide range of appliances on offer with LG’s Lazada store. Customers who buy LG appliances from May 23 to May 31 can get savings of up to 25% and a further 3% discount with a minimum purchase of SG$ 499.

Those who work from home will find a great range of LG TV and monitors on offer at the online store. They can also purchase the latest LG Gram through Lazada should they need a trusty laptop for their work.

Those who wanted to step up their facial self-care routine will also appreciate LG store’s selection of Pra.L appliances. For a limited time, LG will give away two complimentary brush heads with every purchase of Pra.L Dual Cleanser.

Other appliances offered on the Lazada store include LG refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, and more. There’s something for everyone on the online store, so be sure to check it out here.

Youtube support channel

LG has also put up a Youtube support channel to help customers in troubleshooting their appliances. Their Youtube channel features handy tutorials on common troubleshooting problems. Since most customer service centers are still closed or are operating in a limited capacity in most areas, the channel is a great alternative for those who need help with their LG devices.

With LG opening its online store on Lazada and putting up a support channel on Youtube, customers don’t have to go to a physical store just to buy or have their appliances repaired. This is not just convenient for many, but also necessary as Singapore still restricts many non-essential shops from opening.
