Do you want to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Yes, we see you nodding your head vigorously.
The first step, however, is to actually get your hands on the phablet. And this is Malaysia - you aren’t the only person ready to pounce on the opportunity to get that new smartphone. For actual use or reselling purposes, it doesn’t matter to us. What matters, is getting one for you.
No, we aren’t going to give you a free Galaxy Note 4, but this is the next best thing - a quick guide to getting Samsung’s fourth phablet in its Galaxy Note series.

Your friendly neighbourhood telco
Without contract, the Galaxy Note 4 costs RM2499. Not exactly the kind of spare change you can whip out (unless you’ve just struck 4D) to pay for the Android smartphone.
So for some, your best option is to sign a two-year contract with Maxis, DiGi, Celcom or U Mobile and get the phone at a subsidised price. And because we're friendly, we'll point you in the right direction:
The good news: all plans come with at least 2GB of data, which is the bare minimum for anyone who uses WhatsApp on a regular basis. But first, do check with your current telco to see if they have any deals for long-standing customers.
While most telcos will offer some form of waiver for existing customers, U Mobile waives advance payment for two of its plans so long as you sign up for auto-debit. Celcom's bundled price is the cheapest at RM988 but needs a monthly commitment of RM238 and an additional upfront payment of RM1200.
Say one last goodbye to your piggy bank before you smash it, though.
