If you’re interested in Huawei’s latest Mate 10 series, Celcom is offering a monthly payment option with its EasyPhone program. The Huawei Mate 10 is officially priced at RM2,699 while the higher-spec Mate 10 Pro is priced at RM3,099. With Celcom’s EasyPhone on Postpaid, the Mate 10 can be yours from RM50/month.
To recap, the EasyPhone program allows you to get a new phone with monthly instalments across 24-months. This is applicable to its FIRST Gold Plus postpaid plan and above.
On the lowest First Gold Plus plan (RM98/month), the Mate 10 can be yours at RM75/month or RM50/month on the highest FIRST Platinum Plus (RM188/month) plan. Over 24-months, it costs only RM1,800 and RM1,200 respectively, which is almost 55% off its recommended retail price.
For the Mate 10 Pro, it’s going for RM135/month on FIRST Gold Plus and as low as RM115/month on FIRST Platinum. Do note that this instalment amount is for the device only and you’ll still need to pay for your monthly postpaid subscription.
If you compare the two devices, the Mate 10 instalment is about RM60 cheaper each month, which is quite a huge difference compared to the Mate 10 Pro which costs RM400 more at retail. If you calculate the total device cost over 24-months, the Mate 10 is RM1,440 cheaper than the Mate 10 Pro.
For new signups and existing Celcom customers of less than a year, you’ll need to pay 3x EasyPhone instalments for an upfront payment. This is waived for customers who have been with Celcom for more than a year. The FAQ also states that it is mandatory for new customers to take up the device protection plan but this would be optional for existing customers of at least one year.

On their EasyPhone for Prepaid offer, the standard Mate 10 is going for RM148/month, while the Mate 10 Pro can be yours at RM199/month for 24-months.
On Xpax EasyPhone, the monthly instalment also includes RM30 of prepaid credit which means you can just pay this monthly instalment without worrying about topping up for the next 24-months. The RM30/month credit should be enough for most people as you can activate an Xpax data plan that gives you 5GB of high-speed data, 10GB of Facebook and 10GB of Instagram data.
