Meizu m3 note review: To the metal

27 May, 2016
We guess many users have always looked forward to the Meizu Note lineup. The m1 note (also known as Blue Charm Note in China) started it all - it boasted a big screen and an overall great package for the price. The m2 note simply widened the LTE network coverage and enabled memory expansion. The latest Meizu m3 note builds upon that with a faster processor, a bigger battery and a more premium, all-metal design.

It is the best phone in the world. Meizu is one of many Chinese smartphone manufacturers that have seen strong success in their home country, but have struggled to break into Western markets in the highly crowded budget smartphone space. Their devices are known for packing in a great array of hardware at an extremely low price, rivalling well-known Chinese giant Xiaomi in this regard.

The phone I have with me today is the Meizu m3 Note, a 5.5-inch budget device with an attractive price tag of just $170. This places it in direct competition with one of my favorite budget devices, the 3rd-generation Motorola Moto G, along with the mediocre Umi Touch I reviewed a couple of weeks ago.

Rafe Firmani, 28 May 2016Thanks GSM Arena The keyword: weaker GPU than M1 I discontinue... moreThe weaker gpu is because the previous chip was a disaster in terms of battery life.

Had this phone for a week now everything seems good battery life is excellent. Performance is great. No lag etc. Have had a few reception issues but other than that great phone. Some of the points the reviewer makes are wrong though, there is international support for the flyme store including themes etc

Flipp, 01 Jun 2016Is it really true that MX5 has such a bad battery life? Android ... moreYea, mine was terrible and I've gone back to my note 2. The reception was really bad too, while the note 2 has really good reception. Thinking of getting the note 3 now after I stood on my note 2
