As promised, the famed gadget retailer DirectD has officially launched its brand new Gadget Mega Store which is claimed to be the largest mobile phone store in Malaysia. Looking at how big the store really during its launch this morning, we doubt anyone is going to counter that claim at this moment.
Malaysian consumers may not have a lot to cheer about these days, as the onset of GST in less than two days painting a gloomy picture for all of us. However, there is something to be happy about, and it’s from an unlikely source: the “necessary evils” that are our local telcos.
Maxis has put out a video promotional video for its latest offering, a screen protector that allows users to taste food just by licking images. The Screen Savour is exclusive to the Maxis online store, and will also be bundled free with the first 100 phones bought between 1 and 7 April.
It’s the time of the year again, MCMC recently announced that it has issued our local telcos a total of 23 compounds amounting to RM1.01 million. The compounds have been issued to key local players like Digi, Maxis, Celcom, U Mobile, Tune Talk and XOX for dropped call issues and improper registration for prepaid users.
Frustrated with SMS that tells you you’ve been charged a certain amount of money for a service that you didn’t subscribe to? It looks like Maxis will be taking action on such unscrupulous content providers. The telco has just suspended a company after receiving numerous complaints from users.
We all know that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be coming to Malaysia, but will local telcos be offering both devices? Celcom and Maxis have already started teasing the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, so if this is the smartphone you’ve waited all year for, get your wallets ready.
The new U Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus bundles does indeed look very promising. Its new iPlans offers the cheapest option in the market starting from RM40 a month, and comes with plenty of data, suitable for today’s users. But how do the new plans stack up against the big 3 telcos who have been offering the iPhone for many years now? Check out our price comparison after the break.
Malaysia’s LTE networks are on average, faster than the US and even Japan, but its coverage is one of the worst in the world, according to a report by OpenSignal. The company behind the OpenSignal app released the report based data taken from 11 million users of the app, from 29 countries.
