World wide has esim + nano sim version, just excepted on china market.. I do believe the iOS has slightly different to compare for global model.

I hope that's the case though, since they already have this tech. Gives them the one up over the other telcos.

iOS 12 available for download now.

downloading now via wifi to my IP6.

In my opinion there isn't much upgrade on the Xs compared to the X. In fact the dimensions are all the same, and the battery life is claimed to be only 30 minutes more than the X. So, yes, the X is a better buy right now due to the drop in price.

I agree now that price has dropped to RM4299 and my contract with Umobile is RM3465, however no stock at all branches. Maybe they are getting new stock from Apple and (hope to reduce prices) so announce the new package before Xs.

Celcom issue or the dust. I suggest resetting all the settings or factory reset.

Ask the seller. They are usually very truthful. Or go for those with good ratings and reviews and see their reviews, it is usually mentioned. Nothing beats real customer reviews and feedback.

I just bought a USA factory unlocked 256GB iPhone X, RM3899 for my gf last week. Got it from Shopee but I think the listing is gone already as it was selling like hot cakes. Best deal ever!

Make sure the one you buy is factory unlocked set which is the true sim free set and not turbo sim or carrier unlocked. Factory unlocked is just like the sets you find sold in MY, you can do anything you want to it, factory reset it a 1000 times also its fine lol. Carrier unlock aka hybrid unlock is you can still use any sim card but once you do a factory reset, it will be locked again and you need to bring it back to the shop to unlock it again.

You can look for others. To me, even at 4099-4299 it's a super deal already also for a brand new factory unlocked set and I still would've snagged it at that price. Just beware that those that are too cheap are usually just carrier unlocked at best.

Thinking of looking for another for myself now and skip the Xs altogether then go all in next year when they actually introduce a noticeable improvement or advancement to the new iPhones. The Xs is definitely better than the X but no way in hell it is approx RM1.4k - RM1.7k better than the X lol

Maybe RM50 to RM100 cheaper due to Sales Tax of 5% vs previous GST of 6% laugh.gif
