How Much will iPhone X Cost in the Philippines?

Apple has just released the iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone ten) early this week. But I will not talk about the specification and features of this new phone. I know many of you already knew about it. But just in case you don't, please go ahead to Apple website and check out the details.

Apple products has always been celebrated. At some level, Apple deserved it for they produced many revolutionary products. Yes, one may argue that the term "revolutionary" is vague and many can contest my statement about Apple bringing out revolutionary products so let's not talk much about that either. What matters now, at least for me and many of my Filipino readers is, how can I get this new iPhone and how much will it cost?

iPhone X Price in the Philippines, What to Expect?

The short answer to this question is expect it to be very expensive. I mean, very expensive. For one, this is Apple's most expensive phone ever released to the market. At the price of $999 for 64GB, iPhone X easily beats iPhone 7 plus 128 GB model that was released last year priced at $869.

Now, let's talk about the local pricing in the Philippines. For those who are not aware, electronics imported from the outside the country will have to pay extra for importation. That's the reason why it's cheaper to buy gadgets outside the country than locally. So basing on the price behavior of iPhones released in the past, we can expect it  to be about 5000 to 15000 Pesos more expensive here depending on the model. Converting the $999 to Pesos, we can say the price will be in the ballpark of 55,000 to 70,000 Pesos.

"the price will be in the ballpark of 55,000 to 70,000 Pesos."

Since we are not among the fortunate countries to receive the iPhone X this November 3, we can expect that some iPhone X(s) will be made available locally at exorbitant prices. I remember when iPhone 4S was released, I saw prices as high as 100,000 pesos for the 16GB model. Crazy!

Of course, our local telcos (PLDT and Globe) will offer iPhone plans and those will be at even more expensive rates. 

A Status Symbol

When the first iPhone was released in 2007, the first reaction of many is: it's so expensive! Yes, at $599 for 8GB model, it's really costly. Yet, it sold like hot cakes. Apple sold 6.1 Million first generation iPhone at that time. People lined up in the stores to get their hands on this "revolutionary" product. As most people commented, having the iPhone at that time serves as a status symbol. A statement telling others "I have the money".  The same thing will likely happen with iPhone X. Yes, it is expensive but it will sell like hot cakes.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3. Get an Affidav

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
