Globe vs Smart postpaid plans comparison: Which is better for your Galaxy S20?

Pick what suits you better

Published

on

Samsung’s latest and greatest flagship, the Galaxy S20 series, is arriving in March to the Philippines. Pre-orders are now available for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. Both Smart and Globe have already released their postpaid plans, so picking the right one can be tricky.

That’s why we’ve come up with this postpaid plans comparison to help you out. For this comparison, we will be picking a common plan price that will give the best value to you. As such, we will be comparing Smart and Globe’s plan 1499 across the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.

We will also be choosing the one-time cashout option since Globe doesn’t offer a monthly downpayment option. Plus, we’re taking into account those applying for a new application, not plan renewal. So without further ado, the postpaid plans:

A data-heavy user might appreciate Globe’s postpaid offering more than Smart’s. The extra 1GB coupled with free data allocations and Amazon Prime Video subscription lets you enjoy more content while on mobile data.

However, there’s a saving grace for Smart’s postpaid plan. If you always call your friends and family, the doubled call minutes allocation from Smart will go a long way to ensure you’re always connected. Plus, you won’t need to register for any postpaid promos sooner.

After deciding what postpaid plans best suit you, you may need to bring a valid ID to register. For Smart, you may visit any concept store nationwide to apply. For Globe, you may call their hotline: (02) 7730-1010. Alternatively, you may visit any Globe concept stores nationwide.

Wait no more

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series will arrive in the Philippines on March 6. While you’re still waiting for your next Galaxy to arrive in your hands, you may view our hands-on below:
