The Huawei G8 which was launched alongside its premium Mate S is now available from Maxis. Retailing at RM1,499 (inclusive of GST), the premium unibody mid-ranger smart phone is offered with its Zerolution program from as low as RM48/month over 24 months period.
To recap, Zerolution is an easy device ownership program that lets you upgrade to a new phone after 12 months hassle free. However in terms of the actual postpaid plans, you would need to sign up with their MaxisONE Plan that starts from RM98/month.

To have the freedom to swap phones after 12 months, you can go for the Zerolution upgrade option at RM44/month extra, which is surprisingly higher than the usual RM30/month upgrade fee quoted for its previous offering. To upgrade without any further cost, the older device must be returned in pristine order and it is recommended to take up their device protection offering at RM15/month. This covers various damages including screen cracks, water damage and theft.
