RishiGuru, 12 Jan 2020Meizu does not have good track record for Android software ... moreMy 16th global is on android 8.1 and agree about os, it is stable hence the reason its not requiring frequent updates like poor Samsung.

  • AnonD-82756

Come on Meizu drop Flyme and make it boot fresh Android you will sell heaps more your phones are good just Flyme not.

Anonymous, 13 Jan 2020i personally think that android update its not important as... moreFor some reason, it's true because all Android update will always work lag (not buttery smooth like iOS, WP OS, BB Touch OS) because Android framework is like how PC works. All works simultaneous while iOS, WP OS, and BB Touch OS put gesture tocuh on main priority work.

But for some reason, Android update brings new feature. Yes, feature, not smoothness.

I became true!

4 months now since this thing released and I have yet to see it go for the MSRP anywhere at all.

You always get what you pay for, pay cheap, get cheap, just like that, it is inevitable

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2020meizu users - does this brand have good android updates sup... morei personally think that android update its not important as like as other user thinking
you know why?
bcuz for example u have android 8 currently & whatsapp after all these years, stop giving update to android 4.2
& almost all other apps also like that

how many years u wanna to keep ur device ?
3, 4 years @ maximum ???

so android 8 its good for the next 5 years

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2020meizu users - does this brand have good android updates sup... moreMeizu does not have good track record for Android software updates, at least globally. I personally own their 2018 flagship Meizu 16th (Meizu 16 in China) which is still stuck with Android Oreo (8.0) in 2020. My 2018 mid-range phone Nokia 6.1 is currently running on latest Android 10.

However the software on my Meizu is very stable and does what is advertised.

Anonymous, 31 Dec 2019someone in aliexpress put 16T for sale for 288$ 6/128 M... moreI don't think that custom global rom necessarily work better than running a clean china firmware and then installing google services by using the google installer app from the meizu app store. I run 16T with Flyme 8.0.0.0A and installed google services and google play post hoc. Most apps work but since 16T lacks google certification some apps like HBO does not work.

At the moment, I own both a 16T and a Realme XT. The XT has no software issues at all since it has a official global firmware, however, I still prefer 16T (despite some software issues) since it is faster, has better speakers, has a slightly better main camera and has a larger screen.

someone in aliexpress put 16T for sale
for 288$ 6/128

Meizu 16T, New arrival !!!
CN Version intalled Customized Global Rom, Multi-language & Google Play Store,Not support OTA.
Unlocked bootloader. Banking app and Netflix etc. may not work.
....................

i dont know about custom global rom of MEIZU phones
but in LENOVO devices, when a phone comes exclusively for china area & seller unlock the bootloader to install custom global on it. you will find alot of bugs on it. even multilanguage on it doesnt translate completely . even may touch work not normally
& users will forced to get back to CHINA ROM

what about meizu phones...does they have same situation that explaint it in front
for example meizu 16 its for china
meizu 16th its globally....so seller will unlock bootloader to install rom of 16th on 16, everything may will work ok on 16, but no ota

what about 16T situation with global custom rom
which there is not still same model in market with original global rom

Anonymous, 31 Dec 2019i know your device in very good shape & weight 150mm &... moreMy Meizu 16th is currently running on dual SIM mode which consumes more battery. As such below are my stats with 100% battery:

1) Heavy Usage: An hour of gaming (Asphalt 9) at high settings, Data always on, 3 hours of web browsing & social media, 1 hour of calls - Lasts for one typical day with 1% battery left.

2) Moderate Usage: Data always on, 3 hours of web browsing & social media, 1 hour of calls - Lasts for a one and a half days with 5% battery left.

3) Light Usage: Data on when required, 2 hours of web browsing & social media, 1 hour of calls -> Lasts for a two days with 5% battery left.

Meizu always had a slightly different approach to smartphones but history reveals that being different doesn't always pay off. Their design philosophy has always been from outside-in i.e. to design the phone first, finalize the camera & peripherals placements and lastly fit the biggest battery possible in the place left inside the phone. This resulted in smaller batteries than its competitors. Examples are Meizu flagships 15, 16th, 16s & 16s Pro. Very few consumers understand this philosophy or even value this.

What truly consumers understand are specs on paper, flagship Soc, big battery, higher megapixel camera, etc. These are practical requirements and their is nothing wrong about it. So this time after huge management shakeup from Meizu's side they adapted the universal industry proven formula i.e. to design a phone inside out. The result is Meizu 16T. They have taken a big battery, a flagship grade SoC, slap in some high mega pixel sensors and then clam in all these hardware in a cheap plastic body. What consumers will see is a big battery & high specs and immediately go for this phone. Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo & RealMe have proven this to the right formula and now Meizu is following them.

Again their is nothing wrong in this approach of proving high specs at a cheap price. However count out built quality & excellent thermal managements from from this formula as the later two costs. That's why Meizu 16th was expensive when launched & Meith 16T was moderately priced when launched. Nothing is free in this world.
