Police Checking our Phone Contents

I was at Sri Petaling a couple of days ago getting some stuff from a convenience store past mid night (around 1am or so). While boarding my car, three policeman on their police bikes stopped and requested to search me. They did what they did and found nothing (I was driving a BMW and my wallet has substantial amount of cash). Unhappy that they couldn't find anything, they proceeded to request for my phone. Do they have any rights to search my phone and view the content? I felt very violated and humiliated.
