The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are hitting Malaysia on 16 March 2018. If you prefer to get it on contract, it’s now available on our big 4 telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. So which telco has the lowest cost of ownership, lowest monthly commitment and the most data for your money? It’s time for a telco plan comparison for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
U Mobile has often positioned themselves as the value leader when it comes to data plans. Their postpaid and prepaid products often undercut their competitors with a huge amount of data which sparks a competitive price war. For Valentine’s Day, the orange telco has tried to do something funny by poking fun at their competitors.
To spice up your prepaid internet experience, Digi is introducing its Internet Cili Padi passes. It gives you unlimited access to your favourite apps from as little as RM1 for 24 hours. The passes cover a collection of apps including entertainment, social and instant messaging.
It appears that Digi is introducing a new prepaid service that’s focused on delivering a fully digital experience. It’s called tapp and it looks like a direct response to ookyo by Maxis.
Unlike ookyo’s unlimited data offering for a collection of apps, tapp gives you full control over how much data, calls and validity you want. What’s interesting is its sell back feature, where you can get back credit for unused data and voice call minutes.
For those who need more voice calls than data, Digi has just introduced its new Postpaid 58 plan that comes with unlimited calls and 10GB of data at RM58/month. This is basically their Digi Postpaid 50 plan that’s upgraded from 100 minutes to unlimited calls for an extra RM8/month.
The highly anticipated iPhone X is finally available for pre-order today and it will be released officially in Malaysia on 24 November 2017. As usual, we have the big 4 telcos offering the latest iPhone on contract. Since the iPhone X would cost you at least RM5,149 for the base model, it is probably better to get it on a contract to enjoy substantial subsidies.
Question is, which Malaysian telco has the best plan for you? We hope to answer that with our telco comparison.
