Without a doubt, the Xiaomi Mi 3 is one of the most exciting devices to be released in the country. Featuring flagship-level specs at almost a third of what you’d expect to pay for a flagship smartphone, the device is also one of the most elusive, available (officially) only via Xiaomi’s flash sales at an eye-wateringly affordable price of RM769.

But what if you are one of the many, many frustrated people who can’t get their hands on the Mi 3 via the flash sales?

Of the three, DiGi is the only one offering the Mi 3 both with an off-contract prepaid plan as well as a postpaid plan – though that offer has since ended.

by Pang Tun Yau · 2 months ago · 11 Comments · 5.3k views

Maxis’ YouTube video to promote its new MaxisONE postpaid plan was simple, with an equally simple message. Its serene, calm serenade of waves hitting the beach front is reminiscent of its “liberating” new plans that offer limitless calls and SMS to any number, any time.

DiGi, on the other hand, have had quite a reputation for trolling its peers, and it looks like the trolling machine has taken aim once again.
