UPDATE: TM Unifi Basic plan is now open for registration.
TM has just revealed the most affordable Unifi plan yet. It’s called Unifi Basic and this brand new plan can be yours for under RM80 per month. However, there are a few requirements you will have to meet first.
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.
If you missed the first round of flash sales for the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 where you could pick up this awesome bang-for-buck device for a stunning RM599, there’s good news! ASUS Malaysia just announced that they’ll be extending the flash sale period into July as well.
When I hear the words “DJI” and “drone”, I often picture a fairly competent flying contraption that can be used to record epic aerial cinematography — because that’s the kind of reputation DJI has built for themselves. Even their tiny entry-level drone, the DJI Spark, has a 2-axis mechanical gimbal and a myriad of intelligent flight features.
The latest DJI-powered drone I got to try out, however, is a little different. It is called the Tello and as far as I can tell right now, it’s a lot more toy than it is film-making tool.
Yes, they skipped 7, but who cares? Xiaomi’s brand new flagship smartphone has finally launched as the Mi 8. And, from the looks of things, this 2018 device holds true to a lot of what we’ve already come to love about Xiaomi smartphones.
Oh, and there are two more variants besides the normal Mi 8 that’s designed for both the baller and the more sensible of you.
Easily one of the most anticipated mid-range smartphones — at least, for me — has been officially launched in Malaysia. Say hello to the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1, potentially one of the best bang-for-buck devices you can get for under RM1,000. Oh, did I mention it runs on what is basically stock Android?
Everyone who cared, remembered the disastrous Nokia X Android smartphones of the past. They were just nasty things that never should have seen the light of day. You’d think that the company would want to bury something that crashed so hard in a dark hole and throw away the hole, but nope, they’re bringing the Nokia X name right back.
Thankfully, it looks like this time the Nokia X6 — as it is called — looks like a solid mid-range smartphone you’d wan’t to spend your money on. Nay, it looks like a really good bang-for-buck device.
Xiaomi’s Mi 6X is finally official. During today’s launch event in Wuhan, China, the company spilled the beans on their brand new Mi device. Why should you care? Well, this phone is very likely going to be the upcoming successor to the Xiaomi Mi A1, which was one of the best budget phones of 2017.
Been waiting for HTC Malaysia to finally launch their affordable mid-range handsets, the Desire 12 and Desire 12+, locally? You won’t have to wait much longer because the handset is finally coming this week. And if you’re quick, you can get it at up to RM170 off.
For video enthusiasts, Canon is pretty much the camera industry’s biggest tease. Their cameras have great colour science, great auto-focus, great image quality, good battery life, and proper fully articulating LCD displays, but if you wanted 4K video recording, you were limited to either their gigantic Cinema EOS series or the something like the 1D X.
Well, not anymore. Canon has finally brought 4K video recording to something more accessible for your average joe. Meet the Canon EOS M50. But, of course, it’s Canon, which means there’s a catch.
Looking for a different kind of mid-range smartphone with generous specs? The ZTE Nubia Z17 mini which has 6GB of RAM and a whopping 128GB of storage is getting a price cut just in time for the Chinese New Year season. Originally priced at RM1,699, the Nubia Z17 mini is now going for only RM1,399.
