Hello Fellow LowYat forum friends,

Firstly I'm really sorry if this is not the best place to post this topic.
I am from Australia and will be visiting KL next month.

I am looking for a budget Android phone (approx rm 300 ~ rm 500), mid to high range spec, OS 2.2 or 2.3, Phone doesn't have to be a top brand, infact I like brands like Huawei or ZTE or any brands with available custom roms


Overall phone prices in Australia is bit expensive than Malaysia... I have found that LowYat plaza will be the best place to shop and of course Google helped me to find this forum which is of course very resourceful.

Wondering if any of you could please assist / suggest me with some buying tips?
Is there any specific deals or shop I can try? What brands should I look for and what sort of price range?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated

Thanks Heaps

Thanks xMika for your suggestion

I already have a Nexus S (still waiting for ICS OTA upgrade in Aus)
Surprisingly the price of Nexus S is cheaper here, AUD $265 - almost RM800

Hey bro, looking on your budget range, you may consider local brand like CSL which they have android phone is good enough with affordable price. Or Samsung Galaxy Y, if not mistaken is about RM 499, but the screen is quite small.
Good luck!

Err...for a start LYN forum has nothing to do with Lowyat plaza ok...Secondly...if you don't know who you're dealing with....walking-in to LowYat plaza and buy...you are probably gonna get conned or buy at high price....if you want cheap price...contact some sellers here in LYN garage...some of them have shops in LowYat plaza....deal with them on an agreed price and go straight to the shop to pick up your phone when you're here. This the best way to do it. Buy from reputable sellers...they won't want to risk their reputation by screwing customers here.

RM500? Your budget is only sufficient for a Foxconn made CSL.
