The day is finally here, boys and girls!
Apple's brand new, super hyped about iPhone X will officially be available in Malaysia on 24 November 2017.
And by now, we've heard and seen the review: 'It's the best iPhone', 'It's the greatest-looking iPhone', etc. To a certain extent, we understand the hype surrounding it.
The anniversary iPhone boasts a brand new all-glass design, 5.8" OLED screen
, faster and better A11 bionic chip
, super advanced Facial Recognition feature
and of course, wireless charging
Because of all the bells and whistles, you can expect the price point to be higher. And it is: the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone to date.
The 64GB model goes for RM5,149
and the 256GB one goes for a jaw-dropping RM5,899
If you have the cash and you have no problems dropping RM6,000 on a phone, you can get one on Apple's website by clicking here
But you have to admit, the price of the iPhone X is really, really steep; even for those who have no problem splurging the cash for an iPhone year after year.
So, instead of spending that insane amount of money on - and let's be honest here - a new iPhone that looks similiar to an old iPhone, we've curated a list of gadgets which, when added up, you can get for the price of an iPhone X:
We know, we know; the Vivo V7+ doesn't look anything like the iPhone X, but it's still a pretty good phone. It boasts a 6-inch screen, 4GB of RAM and an Octa-core 64bit Processor. Also, the V7+'s cameras trumps the ones on the iPhone X: it comes equipped with a 16MP Rear Camera (with f2.0 aperature) and - get this! - a whopping 24MP Front Camera (with f2.0 aperature)! No wonder Dato' Siti likes this phone a lot. Plus, the Vivo V7+ has a headphone jack, so that's a win for you audiophiles.
Apple claims that the iPhone X is water resistant, but come on, would you really dare dip your pricey new phone into the water? What you really need is the GoPro Hero 5 Black - a tough-as-nails action camera that will not break when you drop it (which the iPhone X is not
, yikes!). According to GoPro, the Hero 5 is water resistant up to 10-meters without a dedicated case, so yeah, you can actually go diving with it. It also comes with a 2-inch touch display and voice control, so it's super easy to take pictures and review them on the go. Not only that, it also boasts a super advanced video stabilisation system to ensure that the videos you take are crisp af!
Why play mobile games on the iPhone X when you can level up and explore ruins with Nathan Drake? You can now experience the whole 'Uncharted
' series (which gaming experts call the best game series of all time
) with this special edition Sony PlayStation 4 bundle pack. The bundle comes with a 500GB PlayStation 4, a DualShock controller and all four 'Uncharted
' games. Not only that, you'll also get a three-month PS Plus membership and a one-year extended warranty on your PS4. So, gaming on the iPhone X vs. gaming on a PS4? It's a no-brainer, right?
Now that you have a PS4, you'll need a new TV. This is where the Panasonic 31-inch LED TV comes in. It boasts the Vivid Digital Pro technology where the colour, brightness and sharpness of the images on screen are automatically corrected, allowing you to experience truly superb images. Its unique Dot Noise Reduction function also helps reduce random picture noise, making images a little bit sharper and crisper. To top it all off, it comes with Adaptive Backlight Dimming technology to ensure that you can see the enemies you are shooting at in Call Of Duty
They say the speakers on the iPhone X are a little bit louder this time around, but why settle when you can treat your neighbours (albeit unwillingly) to a nightly concert featuring your favourite singers like Justin Bieber? This Samsung Home Theatre System is designed to deliver one thing and one thing only: deeper and richer bass. Its Crystal Amp Pro technology dramatically enhances sound quality, and its TV Sound On feature enables you to enjoy all of your favourite TV shows in high quality surround sound at the push of a button. Perfect for house parties.
Now that we've curated this list, let's see how much it will actually cost you:
Yeah we know; we overshot our budget by RM600, but we have to say, it's a pretty good line-up of high-quality products for the price you're
thinking of paying for an iPhone X, right?
So, instead of just one (overpriced) smartphone, you'll get one pretty good phone, a super tough action camera and a complete home entertainment system, plus a complete set of the best video game series ever made.
Money well spent, we have to say.
Now, we've got even better news. All these items are available at all Senheng showrooms and in conjunction with their 38th PlusOne Members Day
, they are offering exclusive promotions and discounts up to RM1,500 - just for you!
From 1 November to 31 December, PlusOne members will receive special rebates when they purchase selected household appliances and gadgets. For example, a Senheng PlusOne member will only need to pay RM2,099 plus 450 points
for this 55-inch Sony Smart LED TV (originally priced at RM3,999):

via their e-wallet. To redeem, all you need to do is spend RM250 in their stores. Yep, that's it!
