Best mobile phones in Malaysia in 2022 - Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

In the mobile phone market, there is a wide range of prices for different users. However, some mobile phones appear to perform better than others even if they are in the same price range. AnTuTu has now released the list of the most cost – effective Android mobile phones in different price categories for March 2023. Among them, Redmi and OnePlus are frantically grabbing the market below 4,000 yuan. In addition, the top three price lists of 0 – 1999 yuan ($291), 1999 – 2999 yuan ($436), and 2999 – 3999 yuan ($581) all have their presence.

0 – 1999 yuan ($291) price range

In the price range of 0-1999 yuan, Redmi dominates the Android mobile phone list with five devices. While the previous generation model, Redmi Note 11T Pro won the top spot, the new model Redmi Note 12 Turbo squeezed into the top three just after its release. This device completely kills the 0 – 1999 yuan price range. Redmi also has Note 11T Pro+, K60E, K40S and other models. The remaining spots are taken by Realme (2), OPPO (2) and the last spot is for iQOO. See the full list  below

The AnTuTu cost – effective mobile phone list is quite elaborate and it reveals the dominance of Chinese brands in the mobile phone market. In all price ranges, the mobile phones are all from Chinese brands except in the above 5999 yuan price range where the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra managed to clinch the number 10 spot. Samsung has cheap mobile phones in the A-Series but none of these devices was able to break into the cheap range list.  Huawei, with all its issues, was able to clinch two spots in different price categories all in the high-end mobile phone lists. It means that the company is still regarded as the flagship market, maybe only in China anyway.
