    Both your positions are firm and right now I care more about the forum itself than anyone’s points or egos. One more extension of the argument from either party and I’m going to shut this thread down. I hope that’s very clear. I asked nicely. I won’t ask again, thanks.

    Red is beautiful as well. Can't go wrong with any of these colors.

    I got my iphone xr already. 1 day late. It’s heavier than my 7 plus, just a little though. I like that i can type with one hand unlike the 7 plus. Color is gorgeous. Ive always had space gray or the last was jet black so red is nice. I thought I wouldn’t like the fact that it doesn’t have a home button but it’s actually easy to adjust to. Screen is also bright and big. Haven’t had 24 hours yet with this beauty but I’m loving it already.

    I got my wife a Product Red iPhone XR for Christmas but I'm dying to use it myself. It's just there in it's box staring at me in all it's red glory. I hope she will like it coming from an iPhone 7.

    The dual physical sim iPhone is a new feature not just of the XR but of the XS as well. Only China (and HK) will be getting this variant. The rest will have the sim/esim combination.

    To those who bought in HK please point to any good deals.

    Heading there soon and considering getting it for the wife. Hopefully, she doesn't insist on the Max!

    Mm...the iPhone Xs does not have the dual physical sim feature, not the China variant or the rest of the world variants. Only the Xs Max and the Xr China variants have the dual physical sim or nano/nano sim feature. The rest of the world variants of the Xs Max, Xr and the Xs are eSim/nano sim.

    ——————————

    You could try Sin Tat plaza (parang equivalent ng Greenhills natin) in Mongkok via Mongkok MTR exit D2 to try and snag a maybe a little cheaper new iPhone or cheaper pre-owned iPhones but I strongly, strongly recommend the official Apple Stores in HK for anything Apple. Of course, it is the flagship IFC Mall branch you should go to and not the other branches (reasons: much better ambiance and the full range of Apple-recommended iPhone accessories). The price of HK iPhones are less 20% than ours (official PH retail) because of zero taxes and duties.

    Or you could canvas the Fortress chain stores for iPhone deals. They follow the official HK retail prices but they might give you a freebie accessory and there’s no harm in negotiating with them a lower price.

    Or if the need is urgent, buy in Greenhills. They widely sell the HK variants and almost price match the HK official retail prices.
