iPhone 8 and 8 Plus carrier prices in Taiwan

September 18, 2017

The iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus will be available in Taiwan for sale on September 22nd, 2017, that is 4 days from now. The carrier prices have just been published in the Taiwanese media, and I have made a brief overview of these prices on the following 5 carriers (listed from the largest to the smallest): Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, Far East One, Taiwan Star, and Asia Pacific Telecom. I will analyze who offers the best deal in a separate post.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Verdict

The new iPhones 8 are kind of a mixed bag for me. While my iPhone 6s Plus is still working well and had no hardware issues (aside from the horrible aluminum chipping), I feel no urge to upgrade. I do feel more and more bothered that the paint is chipping off, so I might opt for the stainless steel iPhone X, however paying so much money for a phone is also a big challenge. I might go for the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB at the end. I've heard, if you switch carriers, you might get some nice discount, so that's something I am thinking of as well at this point. I'll wait for a couple of months before I make my decision.
