Mobile Phone Deals - M1, SingTel & StarHub

Mobile Phones with Two-Year Contract Plans

The recommended retail prices of newly released phones can be very high, and hence telcos usually subside and bundle them with a two-year contract. At PC Show 2012, we select the best phone deals from all three telcos. 

 

M1 (Level 6, Hall 602)

 

Motorola Defy XT

Most phones today may have the best features and specs but they can hardly withstand the brunt of everyday wear and tear. The Motorola Defy XT, however, is one sturdy phone that boasts water, dust and scratch resistance capabilities. Its 3.7-inch display is reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass, making the Motorola Defy XT the perfect, go-anywhere companion for active individuals. Other specs include Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 5-megapixel rear camera and a large 1,700mAh battery.
