Yesterday, Qualcomm had officially introduced its latest mobile platform, the Snapdragon 845. This will be powering the next generation of flagship smartphones and even 2-in-1 convertibles starting next year.
Launched a year ago in June 2016, Yes is one of the youngest 4G LTE telco in Malaysia. Despite being the newest LTE player in the market, Yes has leapfrogged the rest by launching the country’s first ever Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service. If you want to enjoy loud and clear conversations, here are 5 reasons why you should go with Yes.
After introducing WiFi Calling, U Mobile has finally rolled out VoLTE which delivers higher definition voice call. This is available to all subscribers on both U Mobile postpaid and prepaid.
Digi has finally jumped on the VoLTE (Voice over LTE) bandwagon which promises higher voice quality and quicker connectivity. It is now available in areas that are covered by Digi’s 4G LTE network.
Yes is Malaysia’s fifth telco to launch 4G LTE and they are about to reveal their full plans at the end of the month. Ahead of its official roll out, owners of the new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) series (J1, J5 and J7) are able to try out their network with the bundled prepaid SIM.
I have been using the SIM for a week and here are my findings so far.
Yes 4G is the first telco in Malaysia to roll out VoLTE (Voice over LTE). While 4G has enabled better internet with blazing fast speeds, voice calls are often neglected. Of course, most postpaid plans now come with unlimited domestic phone calls and SMS but not much has changed when it comes to call quality.
VoLTE is the next evolution of voice by delivering high-quality audio across a data network instead of a circuit-switched voice network. Does it make a difference? We’ve tried it out and the difference is crystal clear.

Expanding as a telco is what you should be doing year around, thus Digi has managed to up its game by hitting more than half of nationwide population for its 4G LTE network – on paper this translates to 80 major cities and secondary towns at 60% of nationwide population coverage. Though their definition of what 4G LTE speeds are, could baffle many.
