When we first came into the Malaysia market, we took note that it’s a great competitive environment with many opportunities to grow. By considering the diverse and unique cultural characteristics of our local consumers, we have been able to communicate effectively with them. For example, consumers spending behaviour varies and millennials are more inclined towards connectivity at hand via their mobile phones and prefer to shop online. Based on these insights, we have focused on when promoting our products to cater to these age groups. This in turn has encouraged positive sales growth from our past sales, and the recent 12.12 sales as well,”

We are glad to partner with Lazada and Shopee especially with the service quality that they provide for their loyal customers and when 12.12 sale came knocking on our door, we see this as a great opportunity to partner with them again. We are extremely happy with the feedback we have been getting not only from our customers, but also media and partners. Every feedback is valuable to us because it doesn’t only help us improve our communications, but also help us to better understand what people are looking for when it comes to mobile devices. The amazing sales record we achieved so far has encouraged us to push event further to accommodate the needs of young Malaysians and develop more smartphones in the near future that’s value for money.”
