The Samsung has just revealed its Galaxy S4 few hours ago at New York, US. This is their new flagship for 2013, just 10 months from the launched of Galaxy S III. Galaxy S4 comes in 2 colours – Black Frost and White Mist.
As expected, Galaxy S4 comes with a 8 cores processor, but some region will get 4 cores instead of 8 cores, and a 13MP rear camera. All this we had seen during the last 2 weeks the leaked from China. So it’s not that excited for us, just like Apple iPhone 5 leaked last year.

Which phone is the most valuable and worth to receive RM 200 smartphone rebate ? Of course there is no standard answer. But if you ask me, I would say iPhone 5. Why ?
From my point of view, Apple iPhone is the most valuable and worth to own it with RM 200 smartphone rebate, because Apple has fixed the price and their reseller can’t advertise lower than their recommended retail pricing (RRP), so you won’t find anywhere that selling cheaper than Apple retail price.
And iPhone price will only reduced after the introduction of the next generation iPhone. For example iPhone 4S dropped from RM 2,199 to RM 1,799. Unlike the other smartphones, like Samsung Galaxy Note 2, RRP is RM 2,299, after smartphone rebate is RM 2,099, but my friend bought it somewhere even lower than RM 2,099 without smartphone rebate.
Finally iPhone 5 launched in Malaysia last Friday, and Apple Online Store Malaysia also began to sell iPhone 5 (GSM Unlocked) without contract for those who prefer not to sign up either a 12 months or 24 months contract with Celcom, DiGi and Maxis.
Last week I’ve spent almost whole day to analyze all the 24 months contracts offered by 3 telcos, and published a post ‘Best 24 Months Contracted iPhone 5 Plan – Celcom vs DiGi vs Maxis‘. I’d exhausted and I became quite lazy to analyze the non-contract iPhone 5, so I’ve decided to postpone until I feel comfortable to write. 🙂
I would say one of the main purpose of owning an iPhone 5 is to use data service. If an expensive smartphone like iPhone 5 has no data plan, that’s not only ridiculous, but also a waste, even you’re so rich. Therefore in my comparison chart of the prepaid and postpaid plans, I may not include those pricing are higher than contracted iPhone 5 packages.
Prepaid Plans Continue reading
