Smart just introduced their new postpaid plans in time for the arrival of new flagships phones. With more people using their phone to consume entertainment through video streaming services, the telco outs the new GigaX Plans.
The new GigaX Plans offer additional data allowance that’s dedicated to services like YouTube and iFlix. Upon checking Smart’s website, it looks like these new plans will replace existing postpaid plans that were previously offered.
The new postpaid plans start from Plan 599 up to Plan 1999. Here’s a table of the new GigaX Plans for easy reading:
|Plan 599||Plan 799||Plan 999||Plan 1499||Plan 1999|
|Video streaming data allowance||–||10GB for YouTube, iFlix, Fox+, and iWantTV|
If you watch a lot on YouTube and have a premium subscription to iFlix, Fox+, and iWantTV, the new plans would be ideal for your needs. However, those who don’t rely on such services might not be able to take advantage of the offer.
Part of the perks of the new plans is the limited offer of double data allowance for the first six months, for example: 5GB data allowance (2.5GB x 2) for Plan 599. Other special offers include discounted calls to Smart and TNT at PhP 4/minute and free one-month Gadget Care. Plans 999 and above have the privilege to extend the validity of unused data until the next month, excluding the data allotted for video streaming.
As of writing, only three phones are available as bundled handsets, namely the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, OPPO F5, and Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro. Like any other postpaid plan, the new GigaX Plans have a standard 24-month contract.

LG Singapore launches Lazada store, offers discounts
Up to 25% savings can be had on purchases
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.
