Where should I buy Samsung Galaxy S II in Malaysia?

Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the best Android phones in the market now. But where should you buy it in Malaysia? Samsung Galaxy S2 is selling at recommended retail price (RRP) ~ RM2099. Currently, Maxis is the only telco that offer Samsung Galaxy S2 at RM1199 on 24 months contract. Yes, SGS2 is not exclusive for Maxis like SGS1. So you can get it at any mobile phone shop in Malaysia. There are AP and original Samsung Malaysia Electronics (SME) supported Samsung Galaxy S II in the market. Of course AP set is cheaper like RM19xx but only supported by that particular mobile phone shop only (You can find some in Lowyat Forum). Or original set with higher price a bit at RM20xx. However, all of Samsung Galaxy S II that sold by them is having 12 months warranty only. Unless you bought it from SEP like I did…

24 months warranty

Yes, my Samsung Galaxy S II has 2 years warranty. Why? Because Samsung Elite Partner in Malaysia offers an additional 12-month warranty when you purchase mobile phone from them. Here is the list of SEP Dealer in Malaysia. Wow, this is good. So no downside, right? However, yes. The SEP in 1st Avenue Mall, Penang charges 2.5% extra fee on credit card transaction. Do take note on it.

Anyway, be sure to buy Samsung Galaxy S2 from SEP if you prefer longer warranty period and don’t want to be bonded by telco contract.

  • That’s good to have additional 1 year warranty than normal warranty. Great info.

    • Yes, purchase from SEP will get 2 years warranty. Normal mobile shops only 1 year. And take note on this too – http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/10/03/new-samsung-galaxy-s-ii-gt-i9100g-in-malaysia-alert/
