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.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body 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 know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
