Remember my post last year when I said that I would be waiting for #SmartiPhone5? Well, the time has come!
Last Thursday, the Smart Christmas Midnight Rush was held at Resorts World Manila, 9:00PM. Smart offered exclusive smartphone deals, awesome entertainment and most of all, the reveal of the most awaited smartphone in the Philippines!
I was working late and couldn’t join most of the fun, but my excitement was so strong that I went straight to the venue after my meetings. I arrived around 1AM. Everyone was already partying at Republiq with one of my favorite artists: LFMAO!!
Here are some of the deals Smart offered during the event:
- offers for HTC Desire C at All-in Plan 1200 and iPhone 4S at Data Plan 1500
- early reservations for Google Nexus 4 at Data Plan 1500 and Sony Xperia V at LTE Data Plan 1500. Both smartphones will be available on December 18, 2012.
- MOST EXCITING one is the iPhone 5 plans where every single buying customer gets a chance to win either a Hongkong trip, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, iTunes Card or GCs from PowerMac/Sofitel Manila/Store Specialists.
As expected, iPhone 5 was revealed at 12:01AM! I wish I was able to witness the reveal. However, it was okay as my only goal that night was to get my order of iPhone 5! I got myself a Smart UNLI Data Plan 2000 with it. My SIM wasn’t activated yet so I had to wait for 24 hours.
Last night, I said hello to my Smart Nano SIM and iPhone 5…
Oh boy, it was surreal! The iPhone 5 is a BEAUTIFUL smartphone! This is already my third iPhone and I must say, the iPhone 5 is the best one! The retina display made it more awesome and the additional size was a welcome feature. I spent most of the day playing with the #SmartiPhone5, downloading applications and looking at it! I’m in love with the iPhone 5 and I’m just glad I waited for it!
My Sun line will now be a secondary phone. I’m excited to experience what it is to bite into the better network, Smart Communications! I rarely hear complaints about their cellular service so I have high expectations.
Right now, in spite of having a DSL service at home, I opted to use Smart’s 3G. Yes, my mobile data plan is much faster than my home DSL plan. How ironic!
If you wanna get an iPhone 5 from Smart, here are the available plans:
You have three options on how to get a #SmartiPhone5! You can either apply at the nearest Smart Center near you, get it delivered to your home or get it via Prepaid. More information at Smart’s iPhone5 page
