Kris Aquino gives into ‘her X’

Queen of All Media Kris Aquino went after the #SmartiPhoneX and revealed who among the men in her past she was willing to give another chance when she visited the Smart Flagship Store at SM Megamall on Dec. 8 to get her iPhone X under Smart Postpaid.

Kris exhibits her practical side when she decided to get the iPhone X under Smart Plan 3199 which lets subscribers enjoy lower monthly cash-out at P3,199 per month, charged to your monthly bill. Smart makes it easier for you to own the iPhone X at only P 3,199 per month, inclusive of data, calls and text services.  

Moreover, you can have your monthly device fee charged to your monthly bill at the get-go for greater convenience. As such, you don’t need to worry about coughing up a huge initial cash-out payment, or produce select credit cards. Also, connect to the country’s fastest LTE. Smart lets you optimize the iPhone X by delivering the country’s fastest LTE connection, according to the latest study of independent tech firm OpenSignal.

Here is a rare Kris Q&A about the iPhone X and her mystery ex…

Why did you give “X” a chance?

 Life is really short and you really have to take it one day at a time. At the end of your life, what do you regret more? The things you went for but didn’t succeed or the things that you never tried. I’m the type of person that knows I will regret not trying more than not attempting at all. Mas gusto ko na sinubukan ko at nadapa ako at iniyakan ko rather than mag-look back ako and mag-regret.

What attracted you to the “X?”

The X is omnipresent. Everywhere you go, you get that feeling that you cannot escape the X.

How does your “X” make you feel?

During sad times the X can make you feel uplifted because that’s a person you’ve shared a history with. But during happy times also, that X cam make you feel even happier because that person also knows that history and can celebrate with you.

What’s the benefit of being with an X?

The only benefit of being with an X is if you have gotten back together.

What won’t you forget about your X?

The X has memories. If that X has made an impact on your life then obviously, you’re not going to forget about that X.

Why did you decide to give the iPhone X a chance?

 I’m an iPhone lover. I remember I started using the iPhone nung iPhone 4 and it’s really true, once you tried the iPhone you’ll never go back. So when iPhone 4 came, my defenses went weak, I went for it and I never looked back. So from 4 to 4s to 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6 Plus 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus—lahat yan pinagdaanan ko.

 All apple products talaga I love! I love the convenience. I love the fact that my sisters and I have a group thread sa iMessage  and all the yayas in the house naka-iPhone at least iPhone 7 pataas kasi lahat ng nagamit ng mga kids binibigay sa kanila. So naka-monitor talaga kami to each other via iMessage. I really love it!

Now that the X is here, my boys did not ask for anything but the iPhone X this Christmas and we were actually in New York when it was launched and we saw it on display sa malaking Apple store so the boys were so excited but I told them, ‘Relax. Smart is going to have the iPhone X and we are going to get it via Smart. It’s worth the wait.

What’s the best thing about the iPhone X?

For all those debating on whether or not to get the iPhone X or not, ito lang ang sasabihin ko. At this point in time, I’m doing the math and it’s such a great deal to get it from Smart Postpaid. I was computing that the cheapest you can buy the phone, just the phone without the consumables provided by Smart, pinakamura na for the 256 GB is roughly around P73,000. Compute it for 3199 a month times 24 will be about 76,000 plus. Hindi masakit because you’re getting unlimited text to all networks, 60 minutes of calls to all networks, you have one free app every month and then ang dinagdag mo lang is roughly just 4,000. Dito talaga ako na impress because bukod sa ang ganda at high tech ng store, they have Smart Care, for just 400insured yung phone mo.

Sa tunay na buhay ang mga ex, talaga namang they tend to break your heart pero sa Smart, ang iPhone X nila, will never break your heart kasi even if your iPhone X breaks, they’re going to replace it. Sa totoong buhay, hindi naman nirereplace ang pag-ibig. Pero ang Smart, pinapalitan ang unit so go! It’s aspirational yet still within your reach. You will strive harder in order to get the gadget of your dreams and wag tayong magpaka-fake, this is now the dream. We all want this and Smart is making it affordable for you.

Who is your favorite ex?

My favorite ex is the one who gives all the permits in Quezon City! Dami ko kayang negosyo sa Quezon City, bakit ba? I have a kwento. Kasi he was texting me using a phone number from another company and I told him, ‘I’m not going to reply to your text unless you switch to Smart. So I know na nag-retention siya ng Smart niya para maka-text nya ko! That’s why he’s my favorite ex!”
