Want to buy the latest Galaxy Note 5 or S6 edge+ but not sure which telco plan is the right one for you? We’ve compared the current postpaid contract offers in Malaysia, to assist you with your purchase decision. Outright, the Galaxy Note5 is priced at RM2,699 and the S6 edge+ is at RM3,099, inclusive of 6% GST.
Buying one without a contract is probably the most convenient way to go but you could save some money with telco subsidies. At the moment, our 4 main telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile have started their contract bundle plans for the Galaxy Note 5, while the S6 edge+ is offered by everyone except U Mobile for now. Across the board, they are pretty much tied with 24 months duration with exception for Digi where it has a shorter 12 months option.

UPDATE: Check out our Galaxy Note5 Telco comparison post.
The Samsung Galaxy Note5 goes on sale this Friday, 4th of September and U Mobile will be offering the productivity phablet on contract. Priced outright at RM2,699 for the Dual-SIM 32GB storage version, the device can be yours from RM1,299.
As usual, the Galaxy Note5 will be bundled with their own Ultimate Device Plan instead of their new postpaid plans that offer more data. The Note5 are offered as follows:
Ultimate Device 135 (24 months) – RM1,299
Ultimate Device 95 (24 months) – RM1,699
Ultimate Device 65 (24 months) – RM1,899
U Mobile has done it again. After revamping its postpaid offering with probably the most generous serving of data, they have upgraded its P70 plan that could please most chatterboxes. Dubbed as the U Mobile “Hero” postpaid plan, this is likely a response to MaxisONE plan that has been thumping on unlimited calls and SMS.
The Malaysian prepaid scene is getting some serious shake up as U Mobile has introduced its new POWER prepaid plan with heaps of free internet. Putting an end to the atrocious pay per use internet charges, the new U Mobile prepaid offers free basic internet just like other prepaid rivals. So there’s no more reason to panic over missing credit if you accidentally surf online without an active prepaid plan.
The good stuff doesn’t just end there as POWER prepaid offers the most generous high-speed internet in the market. Following Celcom’s hyped #MagicSIM offering that comes with 10MB of free high speed internet for every RM1 you top up, U Mobile has up the ante with 1GB of free high-speed every month for life. All you’ll need to do is to top up RM10 one-time with the new SIM Pack and this is valid for registrations before 31st Dec 2015.
UPDATE: U Mobile’s new POWER prepaid is now official.
U Mobile will be announcing a new product tomorrow which will put other free internet offers to shame. From the recent #FreeInternetForLife teasers, they are expected to do away with the usual pay per use charges for internet and will offer unlimited free “basic” internet out of the SIM pack. This is similar to what Maxis’ #Hotlink, Xpax’s #MagicSIM and Digi’s new SMART prepaid has to offer.
But is that it? If U Mobile wants to shake up the industry, they have got to offer more than just free throttled internet. Ahead of its launch tomorrow, we managed to get a glimpse of U Mobile’s new prepaid plan and let’s just say that it could put even some postpaid plans to shame.
This Thursday, U Mobile will be revealing a new product that claims to set a new benchmark in its segment. With just days away, U Mobile has gotten the ball rolling with its #FreeInternetForLife hashtag on Twitter. Like its name suggests, this could possibly mean the end of Pay Per Use Charge and Internet will be free (albeit throttled) for all users.
To bump up the hype, U Mobile is giving away 3 iPhone 6, with a unit each for the 20,000th, 40,000th and 60,000th tweet with the hashtag #FreeInternetforLife. On their official FreeInternetForLife page, they are teasing what could be the name of their new prepaid plan which will be unlocked by the number of tweets.
If you can’t wait, you can check out what we’ve found after the break.
U Mobile might be the underdog among the big 4 telcos in Malaysia but they been quite a disruptor with its value for money proposition. After revamping its postpaid offering with heaps of data, U Mobile is set to announce a new product that’s said to be a game changer for its segment.
We think this could be a new prepaid product and it is likely to offer free unlimited basic internet similar to #Hotlink, #MagicSIM and the new Digi Smart Prepaid. Effectively this could put an end to pay per use charges for internet which U Mobile currently charges RM0.20/MB.
Without giving specific details, they teased that it will offer more data and voice allocation plus extra services to help you stay connected. Apart from free throttled internet and perhaps more freebies, what could U Mobile do to shake up the industry? We’ll find out more from their media event next week, 23rd July after the Hari Raya holidays, so stay tuned.
Apart from its postpaid plans, U Mobile is packing more value to its wireless broadband plans by adding an extra 2GB of all-day data quota. Its current MB68 of RM68/month now offers an accumulative 12GB of data instead of the usual 10GB (5GB all-day + 5GB off peak) per month. If you need a modem or a MiFi Hotspot (3G 21Mbps model), U Mobile is offering them for free without contract.
After Celcom and Digi started the heated price war for affordable data-centric postpaid plans, U Mobile has responded by upgrading its postpaid offerings with more data. If you want more internet for cheap, their U28 Postpaid plan offers 3GB of data for only RM28/month. That’s not all, you also get 50 minutes of calls to all networks and 300 SMS (100 SMS within U Mobile, 200 SMS to all network). This is basically the upgrade of their U28 postpaid offering but they have increased its data from 1GB to a more generous serving of 3GB per month.
It’s pretty well known that we Malaysians love our social media. We’re among the top nations that love taking selfies and #foodporn pictures everywhere we go. So it’s no surprise that mobile internet is a must have for us, more so when we’re overseas.
Just a while back, we headed over to Sydney, Australia just so we could be one of the first to test and purchase the Apple Watch. And while we were there, our entire 4 days connectivity was reliant on a U Mobile Prepaid SIM.
If you’re wondering why U Mobile, it’s because we wanted to test out just how well the roaming plan worked for us while spending our time down under. Considering that they were offering up to 50MB free of international roaming a day (at selected countries), we really had to try it out. That’s not all though, you also have the option of enjoying unlimited data roaming for both U Mobile pre-paid and post-paid at only RM30/day. Yep, you read that right. Not 50MB, not 500MB but unlimited internet on roaming.
