Both Smart’s Signature Plan and Globe’s GPlan for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G have a 24-month contract.

Smart’s Signature Plan starts at PHP 999/month (Signature S with Device), while Globe’s GPlan starts at a lower PHP 599/month with a one-time cashout of PHP 57,600 (256GB) or PHP 62,400 (512GB).

Getting the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G (256GB) with Globe’s GPlan 999 only requires a one-time cashout of PHP 54,000, while Smart’s Signature S with Device (PHP 999/month) requires PHP 61,998. On the other hand, the 512GB model requires a one-time cashout of PHP 58,800 (Globe’s GPlan 999) or PHP 66,798 (Smart’s Signature S with Device).

Both telcos’ PHP 999/month plans offer 5GB of data and unlimited texts and calls to all networks. However, Smart only gives limited landline calls (from 50 to 300 minutes depending on the plan), whereas Globe gives unlimited calls to DUO and landline.

Nonetheless, Globe’s postpaid plans offer added perks as they all come with free 3GB of GoWiFi, KonsultaMD (Individual Subscription), and free GInsure (3 months COVID-19 & Dengue coverage from Singlife).

Overall, it’s clear that getting the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G via Globe’s GPlans allows you to save more while getting more perks.

Note, however, that both Smart and Globe enable customers to get PHP 14,447 worth of freebies, including Samsung Care for 1 year, a phone case with S-Pen, and a 25W adapter during the pre-order period.
