OPPO Find X2 Pro: Globe vs Smart postpaid plans comparison

Published

on

OPPO’s Find X series has always been about delivering the latest and greatest specs. The OPPO Find X2 Pro is a continuation of that trend. Now, it’s coming to the Philippines. It will retail at all OPPO physical stores. It will also be available as a postpaid device for both Globe and Smart.

To help you decide which is better for you, we’ve come up with a postpaid plan comparison for both telcos. We will base the comparison for both telcos on the postpaid plan that will give the perfect balance of what you get from what you will pay for.

As such, we’re picking Globe’s ThePlan 1999 and Smart’s Signature Plan L. It is important to note that Globe only offers a one-time cashout option while Smart offers both a one-time cashout and a staggered payment option for the OPPO Find X2 Pro. For the purpose of this comparison, we’ll choose the one-time cashout option for both telcos.

Without further ado, let’s compare the plans:

Plan Comparison

Globe Smart
Plan Name ThePlan 1999 Signature Plan L
Data 16 GB 15 GB
Text Unlimited to all networks Unlimited to all networks

  • 150 mins. to any network

  • 3-month iflix VIP subscription

Total Cash-out Cost PhP 30,799 PhP 33,199

On cost and freebies alone, Globe wins this comparison. You are getting more when you avail Globe’s postpaid plan for this device. If you’re a heavy user of Facebook and Amazon Prime Video, you’ll really get the most out of ThePlan 1999 than Smart’s current offering. Plus, the lower overall cost makes Globe’s offering much more attractive if you want to get the most out of your postpaid plan.

However, that is not to say that you should avoid Smart altogether. Smart’s Signature Plan is better than ever, with exclusive perks and exclusives through the MVP Rewards. Plus, there are some areas in the country where Smart’s coverage is way better than Globe’s. If you live in these areas, it’s much better to avail of Smart’s offering.

LG launches three new XBoom Go speakers in Singapore

XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 have well-balanced sounds and compact designs

Published

There’s one accessory that we need more than ever as we work from home. That’s a bluetooth speaker — it’s portable, convenient, and allows listening to tunes anytime, anywhere. Buyers on the lookout for a great Bluetooth speaker should look no further than LG’s XBoom speaker lineup. After all, LG is launching three new XBoom speakers in Singapore.

These three new speakers are the XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2. All these speakers stand out from the competition through its well-balanced sound, enhanced usability and features, and compact design. LG partnered with MERIDIAN to ensure that its speakers produce high-quality sound with deep bass, clear treble, and rich vocals.

LG’s XBoom Go PL2

As for the XBoom Go PL7, LG equipped the speaker with dual tweeters. Like the rest of the lineup, it also comes with dual passive radiators and dual-action bass feature, as well as a sound boost to deliver consistent, crystal-clear, and bass-thumping sound across all frequencies.

LG also equipped some smarts across all speakers. All XBoom Go speakers support hands-free voice commands and multi-phone pairing. Listeners can take advantage of the built-in Wireless Party Link function to link two XBoom Go PL7 together.

Multi-color lighting is also available for both the XBoom Go PL7 and PL5. This lighting feature employs a sophisticated three-step process to detect the song’s beat and match it with corresponding colors.

On top of all the features, all XBoom Go speakers are IPX5-rated. Thus, listeners can use them for pool parties since the speakers are guaranteed to survive from sprays and splashes.

Interested buyers can buy the XBoom Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 on all authorized retailers (Best Denki, Challenger, COURTS, Harvey Norman, NTUC, and Popular) across Singapore. For more information, visit LG Singapore’s website.
