2018/05/14: P20 Pro, Finally

on a scale of 1-10,

to what extent are you satisfied

with your current phone?

*

10/10

i am perfectly satisfied with

my 9 month old Huawei P10 Plus that

i can’t wait to get my hand

on a P20 Pro

*

so i have been following

related update from

rumor, launch, review

and most importantly,

the price

*

the retail price at 3299 MYR

kinda fits my expectation

*

and soon it’s all over major

online shopping platforms

looks like it wasn’t price war

that they are fighting this time round

Huawei P20 Pro

*

but more about the gifts offered

one of the retailers even offered

a premium gift package where

you top up another 59 MYR or so

to get a JBL earphone etc..

*

well i don’t really care that much

about the gifts really and

i don’t really care about twilight color

as all i want is an all black

which i will eventually cover up

with another all black silicone cover

*

but more concerned about the price

because i set a price ceiling of

3000 MYR for myself

*

also, to prevent myself from

ditching my poor P10 Plus

so so soon

*

and i am planning to hand it down

to my 12 year old niece

after she finishes her exams

in September

*

then it came to a point that

my dad’s phone is spoilt

so he needs a replacement phone

real soon

*

my initial plan was to

get him a P20 which is

roughly the same price

as iPhone 7 which i first had in mind

as he isn’t an Android user

*

so that we get to go around

with a pair of matching

P20 and P20 Plus

after i get mine

*

but he rejected it and said

he is okay with using my P10 Plus

and i should probably get

my niece a new phone instead

*

so it’s set

my purchase timeline has been cut short

from September to immediate purchase

*

then his phone seemed okay again

so it wans’t that urgent still

but i readjusted my timeline to

getting one before my Tokyo trip in July

or as soon as his phone dies

which ever happens first

*

and two days ago

i booked flight tickets to Yunnan

in June during Ramadhan holiday

*

i.e. instead of July

i will get our phones replaced

before our trip in mid June

*

and this afternoon

was discussing with my sister

she is the one in our family

who really needs a phone badly

*

but i can’t see why

she isn’t buying one

Note 5, lagging like hell

and by the way

she has the strongest

financial supports too

*

so i casually opened

11 Street to check the price of

Samsung S9

almost the same as P20 Pro

*

and i so happened to see

an electric appliance retailer

is giving away store discount coupon

up to 250 MYR

11 Street Bonus Coupon

*

and they happened to be

selling the phone

at 3299 MYR

with the standard gift package

Huawei P20 Pro

*

which is rare because

as far as i know

their retail price for mobile phone

is usually higher

*

but not in this case because

this is the recommended retail price

in the first place since day 1

*

so what am i waiting for

Huawei P20 Pro

*

so i immediately ordered one

and here you go

everything done within

10 minutes or so

*

yes

i did see the actual phone in-store

at least twice

and it looks gorgeous

*

so it’s just a matter of time of

when to get one

it’s a balance between

price and urgency

*

price:

as the longer i wait

the cheaper it is

*

urgency:

as soon as my dad phone dies

before a major trip

*

so i would say

it’s all about the timing

right time, right price

*
