Globe officially launched its Samsung Galaxy S4 today.
At a press briefing, Peter Bithos, Globe’s Senior Adviser for Consumer Business, and Debbie Obias, Head of Postpaid Acquisitions, bared the postpaid plans for the much-awaited smartphone.

Globe said that My Super Plan got even better because this time, they are allowing the subscribers to customize their contract period (from 6-30 months) instead of fixed contract periods. The plans are bundled with peso value amounts that are almost double the value of the plans. Because of its flexibility feature, the My Super Plan lets that peso value amount be allocated among combinations of call, text and surfing services, consumable amount and gadgets.
Below is a screenshot taken from one of the slides presented earlier.
This table highlights Plan 999 as the best value-for-money plan with the Galaxy S4 costing only P14,400 payable over a 24-month contract period. That comes out to only P600 monthly cashout (via participating credit card companies) for the phone plus Plan 999 or a total cashout of P1,599/month. Under this plan, subscribers get unlimited LTE surfing (up to 42mbps, Globe says) plus free texts and calls.
This is what you would get if you were to get Plan 999 on a 24- or 30-month contract:
Lower plans with affordable monthly cashouts are available also via credit card over 24 months at 0% interest.
Subscribers getting Platinum plans and who sign up for a 24-month contract period get the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a free Samsung device. At Plan 3799, they get a free Samsung Galaxy S3 mini; at Plan 5000, they get a free Samsung Galaxy Camera; and at Plan 10000, a free Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in Globe Stores nationwide starting May 2, 2013.
