Although it has appeared in Vietnam for nearly a month and almost every hi-tech store has it, but the iPhone 3GS is still not favored because the price is still in the "sky".
Going through a round of addresses of portable mobile phones in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, it can be seen that the iPhone 3GS is "polished" by banners, billboards " already have iPhone 3GS ". , " iPhone 3GS best price " .

The heat from the atmosphere of the world also made the domestic players curious. A store owner on Ho Chi Minh City's 3/2 Road said, "customers come, almost everyone looks over the iPhone 3GS. However, the paradox is that the number of phones sold is not much.
The reason for this slow selling model is the price. There are two types of iPhone 3GS available on the market: international and unlocked phones with 16 and 32 GB versions. In particular, the selling price of "unlocking" machines is about 17 to 19 million VND, while the version that allows calling and unlocking is not up to 20 to 23 million VND. Although present in Vietnam from June 26, after being launched in the world for 4 days, until now, the price of this machine remains unchanged.
" The 'heavenly' price for a version doesn't have much of an upgrade, the design is still the same as the iPhone 3G, " said Hai Long (Tan Binh, Ho Chi Minh City). Like Mr. Long, many people who prefer iPhones still see iPhone 3G as the better choice when buying. The price of these models is about 10 to 13.5 million VND, in which international goods are more than 2 million VND.

The launch of the iPhone 3GS does not make the iPhone 3G market much volatile. The moment the new iPhone is about to appear, the 3G version only drops about VND 300,000. Meanwhile, the price of the first iPhone with old models is only from 5.5 to nearly 7 million dong. This type is no longer new, however, users are not excited because the market appears many "build" models, in addition, the quality of the device is also quite bad, the shell is much scratched, the battery is worse.
Mobile market is at a low time, however, smartphones, especially iPhone, still sell well. Apple phones are the most sought-after products compared to PDA phones or smartphones of Nokia and Samsung . The stores selling notebooks in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are watching iPhone as a staple. "Follow" this mobile phone is a series of different services such as installing software, games, breaking or selling accessories, such as external batteries, chargers, headsets, protective covers, screen panels. .
