Are you keen on getting the best Apple iPhone 4 16GB Price in Singapore? Knowing the best deals in Singapore would come in handy if you are based there, with a natural need to use one of the world’s best smartphones. The iPhone was first launched in the US in June 2007, and arrived in Singapore just a year later in August 2008 as the 2nd generation iPhone 3G under the carrier SingTel. The next model, the iPhone 3GS, was launched the following year in July 2009 under two carriers SingTel and M1, and finally, the iPhone 4 was launched in 2010 by all three major carriers of Singapore, adding in StarHub.
The iPhone 4 was the smartphone that indeed lived up to Apple’s slogan of “This changes everything again”, by indeed being a game changer in the smartphone race when it was released in 2010. Initially launched in storage capacities of 16GB and 32GB, the iPhone 4 brought us the Retina Display, which was the sharpest resolution ever seen on a smartphone screen of just 3.5 inches, packing in a dense 960 by 640 pixels for a record-setting image quality of 326 ppi. To this date, competitors are drawing close, but the Retina Display still remains largely unbeaten. Boosted by powerful specs such as the Apple A4 processor, a 5MP camera and a 720p HD video camera, the iPhone 4 still remains as one of the most complete smartphones even to date thanks to its iOS 5 compatibility, despite being succeeded by the iPhone 4S in 2011.
When the iPhone 4 was first launched in 2010, it was made available for purchase directly from the online Apple Store as an unlocked model without contract. The Apple iPhone 4 16GB price in Singapore at that time was S$888, while the 32GB model was priced at S$1,048. The price of its predecessor the iPhone 3GS was reduced to S$748, though it was offered as a downsized 8GB model. Today, with the release of its successor the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4 is also similarly offered in the Apple Online Store as an 8GB model for S$788, while the iPhone 3GS has gone down in price to S$588.
Being able to buy the unlocked iPhone 4 has several distinct advantages, since you are not tied down to any particular contract, which leaves you free to pick and choose from any carrier’s plans in any country, as long as they are compatible with the iPhone. This would suit you best if you travel internationally on a frequent basis, which makes a regular fixed contract somewhat inconvenient. On the downside, you would have to pay the highest price for the unlocked iPhone as you do not get to enjoy the subsidies that are usually offered by carriers under their plans, though of course you would have to weigh this out against the monthly costs of these plans too.
So now for comparison with the unlocked iPhone 4 price in Singapore, we now turn our attention to the prices and plans of the iPhone 4 16GB that are offered by the carriers in Singapore. The good news in terms of choice is that two out of the three carriers in Singapore still offer all three sizes of the iPhone 4 at 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB for you to choose from, unlike many other countries where only the iPhone 4 8GB is available today.
The first carrier SingTel offers you 4 different 24-month plans to choose from based on your usage needs versus budget. Starting off with the first plan Flexi Lite at S$39.90 per month, the iPhone 4 16GB gets discounted to S$480, while providing you with 100 minutes, 550 SMS, and 12GB of mobile data. Moving up a notch to the second plan Flexi Value at S$59.90 per month, you now get to own the iPhone 4 16GB at S$210, bundled with 200 minutes, 650 SMS, and 12GB of data as well. From the third plan Flexi Plus onwards at S$99.90 per month, the iPhone 4 16GB is offered for free, with 500 minutes, 700 SMS and 12GB data, while the fourth plan Flexi Premium at S$205 per month offers the maximum of 2000 minutes, 2000 SMS, and 30GB of data.
Moving to the second carrier M1, you also have 2-year contracts with 4 different price plans to choose from. Starting off with the cheapest plan iPhone Value going at S$36 per month, you get 100 minutes, 500 SMS, 12GB data, and the iPhone 4 16 GB at a discounted price of S$480. Moving up to the iPhone Lite plan at S$56 per month, the iPhone 4 16GB price drops further down to S$210, with a package of 300 minutes, 500 SMS, and 12GB data. Similar to SingTel, the 3rd plan iPhone Extreme at S$98 per month onwards gives you the iPhone 4 16GB for free with 700 minutes, 500 SMS, and unlimited data, while the 4th plan iPhone Max at S$198 per month maxes out what you can possibly get with unlimited calls and data, plus 2000 SMS each month.
Finally we come to the third carrier StarHub, which also offers a choice of 4 plans of 24 months each, though they only have the iPhone 4 8GB available. Starting with the SmartSurf iPhone 100 plan at S$38 per month, you get the iPhone 4 8GB at S$400 with 100 minutes, 500 SMS, and 12 GB data. The 2nd plan SmartSurf iPhone 300 costs S$58 per month, with the iPhone 4 8GB coming further down to S$130, with 300 minutes, 500 SMS, and 12GB data. The 3rd plan SmartSurf iPhone 700 costs S$98 per month and offers you the iPhone 4 8GB for free with 700 minutes, 500 SMS and 12GB data, while the final SmartSurf iPhone Unlimited at S$205 per month is designed for heavy users, packed with 2000 minutes, 2000 SMS, and unlimited data.
In a nutshell, the Apple iPhone 4 16GB price in Singapore under contract is still available at SingTel and M1, while the iPhone 4 8GB under contract is offered by StarHub and the unlocked 8GB model is available at the Apple Online Store. The unlocked iPhone 4 is still more pricey than its contract-bound counterpart, so do weigh this out carefully against your budget and usage needs, since contract plans do offer you a lower upfront cost, in exchange to being tied down to a 24-month plan.
