Looking for an affordable smartphone with stock Android experience? The Mi A1 is probably the best all rounder as it packs great specs and it comes with a dual-camera system. It was launched in India last week for 14,999INR (about RM985) and it’s coming very soon to Malaysia.
OK, Xiaomi‘s Mi MIX 2 stole the show yesterday. In an event that’s usually all about the Mi Note series, Xiaomi has a new champion in their high-end flagship phablet category. But, the new Mi Note 3 does share at least one common thing with the Mi MIX 2: It also has a change in mantra.
In conjunction with Malaysia Day, Digi is offering an affordable unlimited data and voice postpaid plan for 5 days only. If you missed the earlier Digi Postpaid 80 Infinite plan, you might want to get this offer while it is still available.
Why is this still a thing?
When redONE introduced its prepaid plan last year, it offered a long 30 days validity period with a RM10 top up. With more prepaid plans in the market offering more data, redONE has revamped its offering that now offers as much as 19.5GB of high-speed 4G LTE data for RM50/month. That’s almost double of what you get on other prepaid.
The Nokia 8 has finally arrived in Malaysia and it is the first flagship Android smartphone under HMD Global. Not only it packs great specs, it also gets dual cameras with ZEISS Optics, a stock Android experience, and an impressive price tag of RM2,299. It undercuts a lot of flagship phones that are priced higher in Malaysia.
Is this the new Nokia smartphone you’ve been waiting for? Find out more in our first impressions.
There’s no denying that Xiaomi‘s original attempt at the “bezel-less” smartphone, 2016’s Mi MIX, was an impractical device. It was big, thanks to the large screen and not so slim 17:9 aspect ratio, heavy, and a little too slippery because its innards were encased in a polished ceramic shell.
But I loved the crap out of that smartphone. It was fascinating, edgy and a big middle finger to the already established cookie cutter smartphone look. Needless to say, I was really excited for the new Mi MIX 2 because I was hoping Xiaomi would make it more bonkers than ever.
But they went ahead and did exactly the opposite.
