Seems like Apple really sharpen the knife and chopping iSheeps harder every year lol

Worst part: no touch ID which is one of the top 3 most important features in iPhone.

Nothing new or interesting for iPhone X at all, but asking for high sky prices lol. I know iSheep will still buy for sure good luck to your wallet~

I am very sure from their china foxconn factory ship to SG will be cheaper than shipping to USA

Bank service charges is near non-factor for singapore. GST is + 150 or so, not + 400

oh well, just saw the other thread, a lot of countries overcharge the ipX (even in countries without GST/VAT) except for Japan

In the land where ministers (& Mdm President!) are paid so much, naturally Singaporeans have to be charged the premium price...
