M1, SingTel and StarHub have also released their price plans, and we have attached it for your convenience. Personally we feel you should steer clear of SingTel – the prices are way too high

It is important to note three key distinctions between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. While the iPhone 6 only has a lower resolution, 4.7″ screen, an 8 MP digitally stabilised camera and a 50 hour battery life, the iPhone 6 Plus has a full HD (1080p) 5.5″ screen, an 8 MP optically stabilised (OIS) camera and an 80 hour battery life.

There are three variants to choose from for each device – 16 GB, 64 GB, and for the first time, a 128 GB option. Off-contract local prices for the iPhone 6 with these options  are S$988, S$1148, and S$1288 respectively. The iPhone 6 Plus will cost S$1148 for the 16 GB model, S$1288 for the 64 GB model, as well as S$1448 for the new 128 GB model.

Unfortunately, these are ridiculously high prices, especially when looking at the Android competition – the 32 GB + SD card slot (up to 128 GB) LG G3 is available for just S$899, and that’s with a 5.5″ 2K display.
