Xiaomi Mi 10 – tariff offer in the telecom network with calculated profit
So that one can estimate the services of the tariff, we calculate the costs for the hardware from the total costs over 24 months. This is how you can see whether the tariff bundle is worthwhile compared to a separate purchase (SIM-only tariff + smartphone):
- Tariff costs “green LTE 10GB Promo”: 24 x 24.99 euros = 599.76 euros
- Device surcharge: 1 euro
- Connection price: 39.99 euros
- Shipping costs: 3.85 euros
= 644.60 euros total cost over 2 years minimum contract term
According to idealo.de, you pay about 589 euros for the Xiaomi Mi 10 with a positively rated eBay seller. In addition, the Xiaomi case comes for around 169 euros.
- Xiaomi Mi 10 (128 GB, gray): 589 euros
- Xiaomi Mi Metal Carry-on Luggage 20 “: 166 euros
= 755 euros device costs for single purchase
At this point we would now deduct the device costs from the total costs in order to obtain the pure costs for the mobilcom debitel tariff. The results show that you arithmetically even with this contract 110.40 euros profit power. If you would buy the hardware separately, you would pay more than for the entire minimum term with all one-off payments! Even without the value of the suitcase, your monthly contribution would effectively be less than 3 euros. A really strong offer for a 10 GB tariff in the telecom network.
Xiaomi Mi 10 with tariff: for whom is the offer worthwhile?
The offer is worthwhile for you if you want a future-proof high-end smartphone with all the features currently required and need a contract in the best network with lavish data volume.
The only downside: the maximum download speed of 21.6 Mbit / s and the missing 5G option in the tariff. Full HD streaming should still be possible without any problems.
