After reports of a free smartphone for B40 student burst into flames circulated, YES 4G were quick to respond by investigating the flaming smartphone incident and reassured those who had received the YES 4G Altitude LTE smartphone as a part of the Jaringan Prihatin programme that it was an extremely rare incident.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi Malaysia reached out to Suryani Abd Ghani, and gave her nephew a brand new Redmi Note 10 5G.

Let’s compare

The specifications for both smartphones are as follows:

YES Altitude 4G LTE.

  • Release Year: 1996.
  • RAM: 1GB.
  • Storage: 8GB (expandable).
  • Display: 5in.
  • Resolution: 1280 by 720.
  • SoC: Snapdragon 410.
  • CPU: 4 Cores (1.0GHz).
  • MSRP at release: RM399.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G.

  • Release Year: 2021.
  • RAM: 4GB to 6GB.
  • Storage: 64GB to 128GB (expandable)
  • Display: 6.5in.

  • SoC: MiaTek Dimensity 700.

Admittedly this is not a fair comparison. However, it does show the disparity in the capabilities of an education centric smartphone that was given for free in the Jaringan Prihatin programme and a mid range contemporary smartphone.
