Globe iPhone 5 Reset Program Explained

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 10, 2012

We've inquired with Globe how their Reset Program works for the new iPhone 5 that will be released on December 14. What they did was create a Reset Calculator so it's easier for subscribers to compute. The Reset Program allows an existing subscriber to renew or extend their existing subscription just to get the iPhone 5. This means that if you're 24-month contract is not up for renewal, you can pay the corresponding Reset Fee and get the iPhone 5 on your current line. So instead of getting the full amount of the prepaid kit to pair with your existing…

Smart Netphone 701 now at Php4,999

Relevance: 97%      Posted on: January 27, 2012

Smart's flagship Netphone unit, the Netphone 701, is now on fire sale at just Php4,999, almost half the original price of Php9,990. The Netphone 701 is the first and only Netphone-branded handset that Smart carried when they promoted the SmartNet ecosystem. Since then (September 2011), they did release any new device with the Netphone brand. Instead, they came out with Netphone Edition handsets like the Galaxy Y and Desire S. The Samsung Galaxy Y, with its suggested retail price of Php5,990, became a very popular handset especially with the Smart Plan 349. The unit was so in demand that most…

Samsung Galaxy Y vs. Netphone 701

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: October 4, 2011

A lot of people are asking me why the Netphone 701 (ZTE Blade) is more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone Edition. So I looked a little closer and wondered the same. Here's a quick comparison to give you a better overview of the two Netphone variants. Aside from the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Y is the newer handset (released October 2011) compared to the Netphone 701 (released October 2010 as ZTE Blade), the latter is twice as expensive as the former. Here's a comparative chart of the two: The big advantage of the Netphone 701 over the…

The next Smart Netphone handset could be a Huawei

Relevance: 95%      Posted on: March 15, 2012

After Smart released the very first Netphone handset last year (i.e. Netphone 701), they have not followed that with another one except for a couple of Netphone Editions like the Galaxy Y. We wonder if Smart will still introduce new ones and from our past interviews, they've promised they will. It's pretty obvious that the Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone Edition was a blockbuster and sold hundreds of thousands. The retail price of around Php6,000 was a sweet spot (especially with Smart Plan 349) that even retail stores have even increased the selling price to Php7,000 due to the huge demand.…

Netphone 501 shows up in Smart Online Store

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: June 9, 2012

The second Netphone from Smart has finally arrived and it went straight to the Smart Online Store. Following the success of the Netphone 701, the Netphone 501 is beinf offered free at Smart Plan 349 or straight on prepaid at Php3,900. Back in March, we wrote a story that the next Smart Netphone could be a Huawei handset and predicted it will be sold under Php4,000. Well, it looks like our prediction hit a bull's eye with the Netphone 501. The handset was announced and released by Smart around last week of May and we only noticed it when we…

There you go — no need to buy a Smart Netphone

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: October 3, 2011

Smart has just revealed its very first Netphone Edition smartphone -- retaining the original name of the Samsung Galaxy Y complete with the Netphone suite of apps. It's a curious move considering they actually had the un-released and cheaper Netphone 501 hanging since Mobile World Congress back in February. From the looks of it, the Netphone 501 (another ZTE handset) is supposed to be the cheaper variant of the Netphone line-up and should have been launched together with the Netphone 701 many weeks back. Why Smart did not release that cheaper Android phone is unknown but by the fact that…

Globe CloudFone vs. Smart Netphone

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: September 22, 2011

A lot of people that heard about Globe's Cloudfone had the impression that it was developed to compete with Smart Netphone. Well, I think that's as believable as the idea that Globe got the Samsung Galaxy S2 to compete with the Smart Netphone 701. Ok, let's pretend for a moment that the Cloudfone Ice was a direct competitor to the Smart Netphone 701. Globe's ad somehow gives us a hint in that direction (the strategic naming of the phone is also a giveaway). Let's look at the hardware specs and see which handset is better (funny how Huawei and ZTE…

Samsung Galaxy Y gets the Netphone treatment

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: October 2, 2011

Smart Communications has just added a new phone to their Netphone line-up. It's an entry-level Android phone by the name of Samsung Galaxy Y with a cheaper price tag of only Php5,990 for the prepaid kit. What's interesting though is that instead of using the Netphone naming system (something like the Netphone 501 or maybe a Netphone 303 -- this is just an example), they just used the original name given by Samsung. Most likely reason is that Samsung has a good reputation with Android handsets and it will sell more if they stick with it rather than using the…
