It’s Never Been Easier To Switch To A Postpaid Mobile Plan

It’s Never Been Easier To Switch To A Postpaid Mobile Plan

Despite popular belief, a majority of Malaysians are actually still on prepaid lines. Industry reports from Malaysia’s top three telcos indicate that prepaid outweighed postpaid users by a ratio of 6:4.

Prepaid certainly has its perks. The credit top up system allows people to carefully manage their monthly phone usage, while the low costs are attractive to people who are on a budget.

However, these benefits also introduce their own set of hassles. For instance prepaid users need to constantly keep track of their phone call charges; something that makes managing credit usage very difficult. Additionally, prepaid users need to keep track of their phone line validity or risk it being suspended.

On the other hand, postpaid plans get to enjoy the benefit of device bundles, which reduces the amount customers need to spend on smartphones. For many this is the only option to afford the latest flagship smartphones at subsidised costs.

However, the benefits of postpaid is offset by the higher monthly commitments; ranging from RM50 per month and more. But what if there is an easier way to move up to a postpaid plan with all the perks minus the financial burden?

At RM30 per month to get started, it offers the easiest entry point for those new to postpaid services. Not to mention that it still works off Maxis’ 4G LTE network; which the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) reported to be the most reliable telco for 2018.

Your dream smartphone for just RM1

For the most part, getting a device along with your postpaid plan is a bonus. However, it should not be a purchase that will complete derail your budget, or worse, put you in debt!

Take a look at how telcos are marketing their postpaid plan bundled with devices. Many smartphones with a plan are sold far below market value to make a particular postpaid plan more attractive. How else do so many people own flagship devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or the iPhone XS?

However, you will still need to fork out a substantial amount of money for the upfront payment or increase your monthly commitments with a more expensive plan.

Instead, the Hotlink Postpaid Flex Plus plan offers a range of the latest entry level smartphones for as low as RM1. For example, the OPPO A1k offers a massive 6.1-inch display paired with an equally massive 4,000 mAh battery. According to OPPO, this gives the smartphone a substantial 17 hours of screen-on time.

The A1k also sports a bezel-less front display coupled with a waterdrop notch for the front camera, making the A1k look sleek and stylish.

As the budget option, the OPPO A1k is available with Hotlink Prepaid Flex for only RM1 (normally retailing for RM499).

Those with a slightly bigger budget can opt for the Samsung Galaxy A20, available for only RM199 (normal retail price RM699) with a Hotlink Postpaid Flex plan. This smartphone is equipped with a 6.4-inch HD+ Infinity-V Display and comes with Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology. Combined, they crate super bright images that pop off the screen.

On the back is an ultra-wide dual camera setup which pairs 13MP and 5MP shooters to capture better images than a single camera could manage.

There are many more great smartphones too choose from with Hotlink Postpaid Flex, all of which are available for well below their normal retail price.
