Apple iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max telco price plans compared

Dear editor,

Since the telco landscape has changed with increase competition, thus, the question of 2 years contract offer still relevant?

Using Apple store phone prices and Singtel $20 GOMO plan as baseline, all lower tier plans (except M1 $30 plan) will enter negative territory at the end of 2 years.

Meaning, you are worse off by paying more $$$ at the end of 2 years and getting less GB/mins/SMS on a monthly basis.

Just a suggestion, perhaps, a comparison in that nature will be more relevant in today context where SIM only plan is getting prevalent.

Hi XiaoFu99,

Thanks for your inputs.

We do have a standalone no-contract SIM-only comparison too - but it's phone agnostic. Reason being those plans don't offer any savings on the phone itself, thus no matter what phones launch, the same comparison and article is relevant.

We only do these calculations because the phone discounts vary from tier to tier and telco to telco for the 2-year contract plans.

With regards to the relevancy of these 2-year contract plans - they are still highly relevant based on the discussion volume here, the plans that the telcos sell and much more. The discounted phone cost and monthly plan payments make it easier to obtain a better device with a lower upfront cost.

But I understand where you're coming from and it's more of a SIM-Only vs. regular 2-year plan. We'll give it a thought to re-evaluate our next comparison.

Thank you

Thanks for input.

I guess, the gap will be even larger once those street shops start selling at lower ASP (and couple with shopping platforms discount voucher) than Apple store.
