Today is the first day of the #MyCyberSales and I bet some of you would be eyeing one of those nice smartphones which had been released recently, hoping to get them at a good price, or even better at a really cheap deal.

Well, I’ve done some research because I love checking out mobile phone deals, and if I was given the choice, these would be the top five smartphones I’d buy, or rather recommend:

SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE

Of course the Note8 would make the list when it comes to smartphones you should consider.  The 6.3″ screen smartphone from Samsung is one of the best phablets out there that’s not only speedy, thanks to its 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 835 Processor, but it’s Gorilla Glass 5 screen makes it splash proof and has one of the best displays out there.

Retail price of the Note8 is RM3,999 but you can get the original full box set for only RM3,499 or RM291.58/month on Lazada Malaysia here.

XIAOMI MI A1

The Xioami Mi A1 is Xiaomi’s latest offering in the market and there’s many positive reviews about this 5.5″ screen smartphone which is powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor.  The phone has 4GB of RAM, and packs two rear 12MP shooters, making it a huge deal for photographers. On top of that, this is Xiaomi’s very first pure Android phone, and many have commended how well it works as well.

Sold at RM1,099, you can get the Mi A1 at only RM969, or RM161.50/month if you buy it at Lazada Malaysia.

A dear friend is using the Samsung Galaxy S8 and it is indeed one of the best bezel-free smartphones out there. Not only does it look really nice, it still retains the 3.5mm audio jack, despite having an 84% screen-to-body ratio. Performance wise, the Galaxy S8 is a beast with the Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB RAM making things snappy and sleek, while the 12MP single camera ensure all images come up nicely.

Retail prices of the Galaxy S8 is RM3,299, but you can get it much cheaper at RM2,599 or RM216.58/month, if you get it from Lazada Malaysia today.

HUAWEI P10 PLUS

Huawei has in recent years emerged as one of the major smartphone sellers globally, and this was largely thanks to the P series which featured Leica lenses, hence taking mobile photography to a whole new level. One of the latest in the series, the P10 Plus, carries a massive 3,750mAh battery, with 6GB RAM helping work miracles when you turn up the HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor smartphone.

Priced at RM3,099 formally, the P10 Plus can be bought for RM2,269 or RM189.09/month if you decide to buy it from Lazada Malaysia.

ASUS ZENFONE 3 ZE522KL

This is perhaps the cheapest smartphone of the lot, but Asus Zenfone 3 ZE522KL is a surprisingly amazing phone.  It runs on the Snapdragon 825 processor and has 4GB RAM to show off within it’s Gorilla Glass 3 body.  The 16MP rear camera is where it shines most, being able to come up with some of the best photos I’ve ever . Read this review of the Asus Zenfone 3 to learn more about the details of my review.

Retailing at RM1,899, the Zenfone 3 is priced only at RM1,099 or RM91.58 if purchase online with Lazada.

There’s of course other models which you can purchase on installment payment at Lazada Malaysia, but the five above is my choice of an amazing smartphone.

Anyway, since there’s the #MyCyberSales going on until 13 October, you can check out what other phones are in store aside from the five. Manalah tahu kan, you see that one phone you’ve always been eyeing at a jaw-dropping price at this MyCyberSales Lazada Malaysia page.
