Budget battle: the best smartphones you can buy for under RM600 in Malaysia

Xiaomi Redmi Note

The dual SIM phablet comes from a long line of affordability so it's inevitable that we have high (end) hopes for it. With storage that’s expandable up to 32GB via microSD, you get a lot more flexibility than with the default 8GB you’re doled out.

But when it comes to power, the 5.5in Redmi Note is ready to leave the others in the dust. Boosted with an octo-core 1.7GHz processor, the Redmi Note handles as much multi-tasking as you can possibly hurl at it without missing a beat. It also challenges the flagship phones with its similarly specced eye - an impressive 13MP rear facing camera and a 5MP front facing one if it's megapixels you're after.   

Least budget-like feature: That octo-core processor if you have superhuman multitasking tendencies. Most budget and even flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 are quad-cored at best. Lag? What's that?

Sets you back: RM509
