Main Inclusion:

(versus 10GB/month from Globe only when you sign up until December 31, 2015 - after which, you can use a portion of the consumable amount to subscribe to a Surf Pack; 5GB for Php 999, 10GB for Php 1,799)

Smart iPhone Plan 2000 for iPhone 6S
~ 15GB Mobile Data allocation per month plus All Month Surf* for the entire length of contract

(versus 10GB/month from Globe only when you sign up until December 31, 2015 - after which, you can use a portion of the consumable amount to subscribe to a Surf Pack; 5GB for Php 999, 10GB for Php 1,799)

*Smart's All-Month Surf browsing allows you to do non-mobile-data-intensive online activities without charging against your monthly Data Volume Allowance, practically giving you free access to many of the sites you visit regularly, including the following:
  • Web Searches (e.g. Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.)
  • Web Reading (e.g. blogs, news, articles, plain text, etc.)
  • Social Media Posts with or without photos, comments status updates, likes (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
  • Emails - reading, sending in plain text without attachments (e.g. Outlook, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, etc.)
  • Chat Messaging with or without photos (e.g. WhatsApp, Line, Viber, etc.)
*Since you already have All-Month-Surf for your free social media access, you can pick Youtube as your free app for the entire your contract duration with Smart to make the most of your total data allocation.

Globe My Lifestyle Plan 1799 for both iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
~ Unlimited Text Messaging to All Networks and Unlimited Calls to Globe and TM numbers

(versus 300 Texts To All Networks and 300 Minutes of Calls to All Networks via both Smart iPhone Plans)

TechPinas Conclusion

Off hand, it's clear that Smart Postpaid offers bigger data allocation on their iPhone 6S and 6S Plus Plans (especially for the latter), which makes sense since we're already in the digital age and one uses an iPhone mainly to connect to the internet on the go.
