To the untrained eye, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion that being an iPhone owner means putting a huge strain on your wallet. These are some of the best devices in the market, so naturally people expect to have to pay top dollar for these handsets.
However, you might be surprised that being an iPhone owner isn’t as taxing as it seems. In fact, here are two strategies you can employ to greatly reduce the cost.
First, know which iPhone to go for
While the iPhone XS and XS Max are out there stealing headlines, many don’t realise that the third iPhone — the iPhone XR — has pretty much all of the goodies that make the flagship iPhones great, but at a much lower price. Just look at the specs!
The iPhone XR is powered by the same, and incredibly powerful, Apple A12 Bionic processor and the same 12MP main camera at the back with optical image stabilisation. What’s more, the iPhone XR actually has the best battery life of any smartphone — a full 1.5 hours longer than the previous stamina king, the iPhone 8 Plus.
Couple that with all the other Apple-y goodies you can expect from an iPhone, and you’ve got a flagship iPhone without the price tag of a flagship iPhone. Oh, and the iPhone XR even comes with a whole plethora of awesome colours to choose from!
Second, get it with Celcom’s EasyPhone plan
A good way to offset the upfront cost of a smartphone, is to get it with a telco. Celcom’s EasyPhone plan is one of the easiest and most affordable options out there. With EasyPhone RENT, you can get your hands on an iPhone XR from as low as RM58/month with Celcom’s Platinum Plus 188 plan that gives you a whopping 100GB of mobile internet per month. Alternatively, if you prefer to keep the device, you can opt for Celcom’s EasyPhone OWN, where you can pick up a brand new iPhone XR from as low as RM89/month with the Celcom Platinum Plus 188 plan.
The beauty of EasyPhone is how simple everything is. You can easily upgrade your old phone to an iPhone XR and you can even do so online at Celcom’s website. Need device protection?
