What a year it has been so far since the last time we published our best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition). We changed governments in a historic election nobody saw coming, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now zero-rated and, of course, a whole bunch of brand new affordable smartphones launched.
We thought about a simple update to our original guide, but because so much has changed, we figured it would be a disservice for you to just add the couple of new phones to the end of that one. Instead, we decided that it would be better if we gave the whole guide a proper face-lift, featuring the new updated GST-less budget smartphones, several brand new handsets and a revised Editor’s Choice section.
Here’s our ultimate budget smartphone guide Part 2.

After countless of leaks, the latest Moto G6 and Moto E5 series are finally official. These are Motorola’s mid-range and entry-level smartphones and they succeed the current Moto G5s and Moto E4 lineup. Like most new smartphones launched this year, mosr of them feature a taller 18:9 display which Moto calls Max Vision.
Motorola didn’t reveal any new Moto smartphones during MWC 2018 but it looks like its upcoming Moto G6 launch is just around the corner. Serial leakster, Roland Quandt, has dropped more images including product details of the Moto G6 and G6 Play.
Seems that Motorola might have a retro phone coming our way pretty soon, with the possibility of there being a revival for their iconic RAZR phones.

Dual-camera technology is no longer limited to flagship smartphones. It’s now even more accessible on mid-range devices which have gotten better over the years. For less than RM1,000, the top two contenders are the Moto G5S Plus and the Xiaomi Mi A1.
While both are quite similar in specs, the twin camera setup is quite different. Read on to learn more about the Moto G5S Plus’ camera features.
MWC 2018 is happening next month and we expect Motorola to reveal a couple of smartphones like it did last year. Ahead of the big reveal, it appears that Motorola’s new lineup ranging from its affordable Moto G to its flagship Moto Z series has been leaked in its full glory. The folks at DroidLife have gotten several images along with hardware details of selected models.
Motorola is adding more possibilities to its modular Moto Z series with two new Moto Mods at CES 2018. One of it is a health and fitness measuring tool, while the other Moto Mod adds a full sliding QWERTY keyboard to your existing Moto Z smartphone.

We live in a world where we’re terribly spoiled for choice when it comes to our mobile devices, but when you want the best of the best, sometimes it’s a little out of reach. But at the same time, is it truly worth settling for “the next best thing” when you can do better without breaking the bank?
So why settle for less when you can have the Moto G5S Plus, a beautifully crafted all-rounder of a phone in a premium shell, for a fraction of the price.
If you own a Moto Z, Moto Z Play and the Moto Z2 Play, you can transform your device further with 2 new Moto Mods that have just arrived in Malaysia. Motorola has finally brought in the Moto Mods 360 and Game Pad.
