Singtel Mobile Leasing

Do you guys think this is worth? For a iPhone X 256GB.
The cost of $62 (x 30 months presuming you do not return and intends to keep it forever) = $1860.

Or return after 12 months + $200 and swap for the next iPhone release.
But of course, the leasing cost of the next iPhone 256GB is still unknown. Could be $62 still or higher.

I rather not pay $62 for 24 months just for a iphone X now. You are tie down to a iphone X for 2 yrs. The new iphone is releasing this sept. You are just 3 months away only.

If you do a 24 months contract mean the next iphone you can buy will b in 2020, making your iphone X useless.

Cost of owning the iPhone X is $62x12 plus $200 or $944. This is exactly half of $1888 of the iPhone X.

Current price of iPhone X is $1500 or $1620 on Qoo10 (before voucher of $120).

Current resale price of used iPhone X is $1300. Most likely the resale price of iPhone X will be 50% or original price.

So cost of funding an iPhone X via Qoo10 will be about $1500-$944 or $556. Can buy via CC installment over 6-12 months.

To me, no point doing so unless you are 3 months into launch of new iPhone when the trade in value is still high.

Additionally, still need to sign contract. Basically it is a installment plan. Whatís the different? You are guaranteed to pay $944 to lease the phone over 12 months. The only saving grace is the Mobile Swop plan that comes with it.
