Singtel launched Apple iPhone X

The Apple iPhone X was a highly anticipated smartphone in the Singapore market when it was first announced by Apple in California. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus first arrived into the market, followed by the iPhone X. Although I am in the midst of upgrading from my iPhone 7 Plus, I am quite curious to see, feel and touch the iPhone X.

On the morning of 3rd November 2017, I attended Singtel’s launch of the eagerly anticipated Apple iPhone X at ComCentre, catching the official launch and the first Singtel customer to get the much coveted iPhone X from Singtel.

Mr Wang Wei Hong, 33, arrived at Singtel Shop Comcentre at 6am this morning, making history as the first Singtel customer to get the much coveted iPhone X. The bank service manager is a huge Apple fan – he has every iPhone model made and also queued up early to be third in line for the iPhone 8 Plus when it was launched two months ago in September.

Mr Wang purchased the 256GB iPhone X in Space Grey and is most excited about its “all screen” design and the “optical image stabilisation” feature on the smartphone’s cameras.  He added, “I’ve taken the day off and will spend time exploring all the features of my new iPhone X”.

There was high demand for the iPhone X among Singtel customers, with pre-order stocks snapped up in minutes. Singtel customers who pre-ordered successfully will be collecting their iPhone X at a special three-day iPhone X launch event at Singtel Shop Comcentre.

Customers who are interested in purchasing the iPhone X can check for updates on availability at www.singtel.com/iphone.

After the official Singtel iPhone X launch was over, I stayed around for a while more with fellow tech blogger friend Hisham, to check out the features of the iPhone X, trying it out, testing the video quality, comparing the size and features of the iPhone X with my iPhone 7 Plus. Thanks to Hisham for posing with the iPhone X and helping me with holding the iPhone X and my iPhone 7 Plus together for comparisons!

I am probably going to continue and stick it out with my current iPhone 7 Plus (still working good) for now, till my 2 year Singtel contract expires next year and I shall wait for the next iPhone model.

If somebody is going to give me an iPhone X as a Christmas (December) + birthday (January) gift for me, I will accept it with open arms!

Logitech CREATIVE Protective Case

The iPad PRO is the latest Apple gadget that is now available in the market. Personally, I am pretty keen on the iPad PRO and I have a feeling that it would suit me perfectly (Somehow!). While I am not likely to be getting the first generation iPad PRO, I might invest if I have sufficient funds that I can set aside after investing in other toys on my priority list! However, for my friends and readers planning to get the iPad PRO, let me share with you an accessory designed by Logitech for the iPad PRO, the Logitech CREATE Protective Case from the Logitech press release ~

Logitech unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of the new iPad Pro : the Logitech CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand.

The Logitech CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand

The Logitech CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand adjusts to whatever adventure comes your way. The case’s flexible stand has a hidden hinge that firmly holds your iPad Pro in the perfect viewing angle within a 60degree range. Place the iPad Pro upright in the stand for watching video in comfort or nearly flat for sketching with the Apple Pencil – there’s an angle for nearly every activity or work setup. The Logitech CREATE protects the front and back of your iPad Pro without adding unnecessary bulk or weight.

Key Features

  • Any-angle stand with stayinplace hinge : The case’s flexible stand has a patent pending hidden hinge that provides the perfect viewing angle within a 60degree range. The powerful smooth glide hinge firmly holds your iPad Pro in the chosen angle, until you decide to change it.
  • Thin and light protective case : When surprises come your way, the case’s durable and water repellant materials have you covered. The Logitech CREATE protects the front and back of your iPad from accidental bumps, scratches and spills while keeping ports accessible and without adding unnecessary bulk or weight.
