It’s the time of the year — the 11.11 sale is where you’ll finally spend on the items you’ve been wanting for days, weeks or even months. Lucky you, if you’re looking for a new smartphone, we’ve found some that will get your more bang for your buck.
If you’re searching for a secondary phone, or even a phone for your parent/grandparents who aren’t tech savvy, the vivo Y91c is a great choice that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. It has a huge 6.22-inch display and a hefty 4,030mAh battery so you or your family won’t have to worry about charging it often. Plus, if you like storing a lot of files in your phone, you can always expand the storage up to 256GB with a microSD card.
Originally priced at RM499, the Vivo Y91C is now offered at RM299 — just remember to use vivo’s voucher for that extra price cut.

Redmi Note 8 Pro
This is another phone that is launched in 2019 that has garnered quite a number of attention. The Note 8 Pro is an affordable phone that offers a 64MP quad camera and a 20MP selfie lens so you can capture beautiful photos without needing a high-end phone. You’ll also be relieved to know that its 6.53-inch FHD+ display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5, so it’s less breakable if you accidentally drop the phone.
This midrange phone packed with the Helio G90T chipset and 6GB RAM is now reduced from RM1,099 to RM699.

HONOR 9X Pro

Equipped with a Kirin 710F chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 256GB storage, the 9X Pro is good enough for you to play games like PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty. It also has a 48MP triple camera which took surprisingly nice lowlight photos.
