From now until 31st August 2018, Samsung Malaysia wants you to get the most out of the tax holiday with its new “GST” (Great Samsung Treat) promo. Apart from having 0% GST, you can enjoy instant cash rebates as much as RM634 and free gifts of up to RM2,451 when you purchase selected Samsung TVs.
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.
