Robert's Google+

LTE or 4G technology will be highly sought by tech-savvy, internet-speed-craving smartphone buyers. 

Major mobile service providers such as Digi, Celcom and Maxis are offering their LTE/4G plans tied with Samsung Galaxy Ace 3. Many consumer do not know that the fact is that they have other choice / alternative. They do not really need to purchase smartphone and tied with any talk plans. 

There are cheap and budget smartphones built-in LTE/4G capability. It is not surprise that some of these smartphones in market not even selling above RM1000. We all know that those smartphone above the price tag of RM1000, most of the smartphones has LTE/4G feature. What are these LTE/4G smartphones under RM1000?

There are many advantages purchasing contract-free smartphone. For example, you could anytime sell the smartphone to your friends, the trouble of paying penalty fees but smartphone stolen or lost, using cheaper talk plans, contract-free smartphone usually are way cheaper due to discounted/promotion price.

There are many hassle owning a smartphone with contract. What is your opinion? My point of view is that smartphone with contact has intangible and indirect advantages.
