Maxis was the first ever network in Malaysia to proudly show off their Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE plans (congrats to them!), and while they don't get too many brownie points for being the best until Celcom, DiGi and U Mobile etc. launch their respective plans, its worth having a look at what Maxis can offer. In fact, Maxis have upgraded their website, and you can actually purchase your device + plan right off the Maxis Online Store.
But wait, wasn't the Samsung Galaxy S4 already launched in late April 2013? What's this? Well, turns out that the device launched in April was a 'lower-spec' version than the one being launched in early June, with things like a better chipset (faster phone) and 4G-LTE connectivity (faster internet, if your network can provide it though) promised in this newer version, along with double the storage capacity at 32GB vs the old 16GB. And yes, the price (RRP) is also a little higher at RM2,499 vs. RM2,199 for the non-LTE version. What's LTE exactly? Check out our full 4G LTE guide here. Know all about LTE and just want to find out if Maxis has extended LTE coverage to your favourite places? Check out their coverage area list here.
If you are looking for a bargain on a Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE plan, and get a large discount on the device, you'll probably have to get locked in to a long term 12/24-month postpaid contract. We would probably say wait for the other big telcos to launch their prices before jumping on a Maxis plan, we'll even do the heavy lifting and compare plans between all of them for you, but if you're super keen on Maxis then give these plans a look.

Maxis is offering an additional RM120 rebate (RM10 rebate per month for 12 months) if you purchase most of their 12 and 24 month bundles via their online store (exception here of the TalkMore28 variants). So for most plans, if you get the 12 month contract plan online you effectively get RM10 off the monthly fee for the duration of the contract, and if you get the 24-month plan you get it for half the contract. Keep in mind though, the store is quite new, there may be some functionality and error issues, a couple we've found is that you have to be signed in first and that you have to get a new number (so no upgrading your current contract or doing a MNP).
Remember that the best plan for you will depend heavily on your usage, so be sure to check back at SaveMoney.my soon for our plan comparison tool similar to the one we did for Samsung Galaxy S4 non-LTE Plans in Malaysia. If you're not that keen on paying extra for the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE, you can still get the non-LTE version, but be sure to check out our non-LTE S4 guide first.
