Great news! You can now pre-order the Samsung’s latest Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ from Smart. Get one for as low as Php1,899 a month!
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is within reach
Smart’s latest offering is friendlier than I expected. By simply adding Php1,500 on top of the new Smart Postpaid Plan, you can own the latest flagship from Samsung. That means you can get the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ for as low as Php1,899 per month. You get the phone plus a baseline monthly allocation of 3GB of open access data, built-in call minutes to all networks, unlimited texts to all networks and free access to Facebook Messenger, Viber and/or WhatsApp every month. There is a lock in period of 24-months, and a one-time cash-out of Php5,000 for the S8 and Php8,000 for the S8+.
UPDATE: Smart made just made their plans a bit more interesting. One-time cash out for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ is now Php3,000 and Php6,000, respectively.
To recap, you just add Php1,500 on top of any of Smart’s new Postpaid plans, pay the one-time cash-out and you’ll have one of the year’s most sought after devices. So that means you can get one for as low as Php1,899 per month (the lowest Plan399 and add Php1,500).
The Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S8+ is also available with premium data plans from Smart Infinity.
New Smart Postpaid Plans
Smart’s new postpaid plans now offer more data (and, in my opinion, more value). You can build the most suitable plan based on your lifestyle. Just choose between the following plans:
|Smart Plan||Data||Calls (All Networks)|
|Plan 399||3GB||20 mins.|
|Plan 599||5GB||30 mins.|
|Plan 799||8GB||40 mins.|
|Plan 999||10GB||50 mins.|
|Plan 1499||18GB||60 mins.|
|Plan 1999||24GB||70 mins.|
|Plan 2499||30GB||80 mins.|
|Plan 2999||35GB||90 mins.|
Again, each plan comes with built-in call minutes to all networks, unlimited text to all networks and free access to Facebook Messenger, Viber and WhatsApp every month.
As an added bonus, you can also add some of Smart’s flexibundles on top of your current plan. If you need more minutes for example, you can use All Net Talk 249 — giving you an additional 80 minutes worth of all net calls, valid for 30 days. You may click here to see the a list of Smart’s add-ons.
