SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition)

Moto G5s Plus

Moto has been a little quiet in Malaysia but the G5s Plus is definitely a capable smartphone. For fans of stock-like Android experiences, this is one of the few phones that offers that, plus a couple of added features like Moto’s gestures.

On the hardware side of things, the device is pretty standard, featuring a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Its also got a 13MP + 13MP dual camera system at the back and an 8MP selfie shooter in front for all your photography needs.

That said, if you were looking for a tall 18:9 screen with slim bezels, you will be disappointed because the handset comes with a regular 16:9 aspect ratio display with regular old bezels. Still, it pushes a resolution of Full HD 1920×1080 pixels so you do get a sharp 401 pixels per inch so that’s always nice.

UPDATE: Good news! We have updated and published a brand new Best smartphones under RM1,200 guide! It includes the new devices that have launched since this guide was published as well as the new discounted prices thanks to zero-rated GST. You can check it out here.
