The Mi Max isn’t sold through the Malaysian Mi Store but you can get one outright without contract from Yes. This is Xiaomi’s largest phablet yet with a gigantic 6.44″ display.
Alongside the offerings from Maxis, Digi, U Mobile and Celcom, Yes 4G has also revealed their Samsung Galaxy Note7 bundle. What’s different is that in addition to the postpaid bundles in Malaysia, Yes 4G is also offering just the device itself with no contract plus a bunch of goodies and a discount.
However, there is a slight catch.

UPDATE: Yes has unveiled more postpaid and prepaid offerings. More specs for the Yes Altitude Android smartphone.
UPDATE 2: We now have a list of compatible devices.
Yes 4G is finally in the mobile business as they have unveiled its commercial 4G LTE postpaid plan. When Yes 4G LTE was launched about 2 weeks ago, they had bundled free prepaid SIMs, with 30GB of quota, with every new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) device. If you’ve been waiting for a postpaid alternative, this could be it.
Yes is Malaysia’s fifth telco to launch 4G LTE and they are about to reveal their full plans at the end of the month. Ahead of its official roll out, owners of the new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) series (J1, J5 and J7) are able to try out their network with the bundled prepaid SIM.
I have been using the SIM for a week and here are my findings so far.
Yes 4G is the first telco in Malaysia to roll out VoLTE (Voice over LTE). While 4G has enabled better internet with blazing fast speeds, voice calls are often neglected. Of course, most postpaid plans now come with unlimited domestic phone calls and SMS but not much has changed when it comes to call quality.
VoLTE is the next evolution of voice by delivering high-quality audio across a data network instead of a circuit-switched voice network. Does it make a difference? We’ve tried it out and the difference is crystal clear.
If you’re in the market for entry-level devices, Samsung has just launched their Galaxy J (2016) series in Malaysia. It comes in 3 models namely Galaxy J1 (2016), Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) with prices starting from RM449.
Yes is making a comeback and they are doing it with a huge bang. The WiMAX operator under YTL Communications is now rolling out its 4G LTE service, making them the fifth choice when it comes to 4G LTE mobile services.
According to its CEO, Mr. Wing K. Lee, Yes is Malaysia’s first 4G network to have a massive 85% population coverage. That’s quite an impressive feat and as comparison, Maxis’ 4G LTE coverage currently stands at 82%.
What is your ideal 4G LTE network? If you ask anyone, most would answer lots of cheap data. Personally, I would prefer a network with coverage that’s wide enough that I wouldn’t even need to worry about it.
For almost 10 years, most Malaysians have a choice of 4 mobile networks, namely Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. This year, things are starting to change as more operators are entering the space.
Webe, formerly known as P1 has been launched but their full commercial services are yet to be seen until the second half of this year. This week, Yes is expected to introduce its 4G LTE service and they could go to market ahead of Webe.
After introducing the Galaxy A (2016) series, Samsung Malaysia is now turning its attention to its new Galaxy J series for 2016. These are their entry-level offering which helped to drive volumes for the Korean smartphone maker. There will be 3 models – the Galaxy J1, J5 and the J7.
Unlike other events, this launch involves a telco which has been quiet for some time. If you can’t wait for webe, this could be the next telco to look out for.

UPDATE: Yes’ Super 168 still remains at RM168/month. You’ll need to pay RM93.28/month inclusive of GST after receiving the “monthly rebates”.
Want a different way of owning the Galaxy S7 edge? 4G WiMAX operator Yes is offering the Samsung flagship at RM799 (before GST). Unlike other telcos, Yes is offering it with their MiFi broadband bundle and it packs quite a punch at RM88/month.
