After dropping the bundle pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S5 down to RM1199 with the Raya for Gaya promotion, Maxis are now offering a trade-in program as well for the Galaxy S5.

The highest discount is with the Apple iPhone 5 which gives you a discount of RM1000, effectively lowering the price down to RM199.

The Maxis ONEplan aims to offer a simple to understand and follow post-paid plan for new and existing Maxis users. Seeking to maintain this simplicity with their device bundles, Maxis have set the advance payment of a device retailing above RM400 to four months charge of either the ONEplan or ONEplan Lite while a device retailing below RM400 is only charged two months of either the ONEplan or ONEplan Lite plans. All advance payments are rebated into the customer's bills and loyal customers with more than 12 months on Maxis and who have a good credit record won't have to make these advance payments. So far, the device list includes the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, HTC One (M7), Sony Xperia M2, Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, Huawei Ascend Y530 and the Xiaomi Mi 3.

With the Samsung Galaxy S5 well and launched here in Malaysia, Maxis is one of the first of the major telcos to come out with pre-order bundles for the smartphone. You can now get the Galaxy S5 from RM1399 (retail pricing is at RM2399) once you sign up for a TalkMore or SurfMore postpaid plan. Maxis are offering both 12 months and 24 months contracts which should be great for those who don't like to be tied to a contract for too long. However, there is one downside, the preorder is only for those subscribing to get a new number. Existing Maxis customers will have to wait a while longer with the next pre-order expected on 3 April 2014 (which isn't all that long actually).
