You get a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. On the connectivity front you get a dual nano-SIM card slot, Wi-fi Most of the Chinese phones we have seen in the Indian market offlate, come with their own custom user interfaces. Meizu is no different and it bundles its phones with the Flyme user interface. The Meizu m2 note comes with Flyme UI 4. The design language is completely different from the Android Lollipop. It does come with its quirks.
For starters, there are no back or task-switch soft keys. To go back you simple touch the home button and you will be able to go back. To come to the home screen from anywhere, just press on to the home button. Also to pull up the recently used apps, you need to swipe up from the left hand side of the button. These gestures will take some time getting familiar with, if you are used to using the soft keys on either side of the home button to either go back or see currently open apps.
Meizu M3 Max - Opinion & Review
It seems that the user interface has been designed keeping Chinese fonts in mind. This becomes evident when you open the settings menu as well as with the notifications. The font size, even when made small, gives text which overflows on notifications and in the settings menu. The two columns for settings menu is quite cumbersome and if you are used to the traditional Android settings menu, this will come across as a bit odd.
Other apps such as Gmail, YouTube need to be downloaded. It does come with its own file manager, email client, browser, and Security apps.

The Security app lets you clean junk, clean apps, manage traffic, tweak power-saving mode, select app permissions and so on. If you are coming from a stock Android OS, then this will involve some learning curve to find your way around.

The Meizu m2 note comes with a 5. It is sufficiently bright but the glossy surface makes the reflections quite prominent when watching a dark scene.
The backlight bleeding was minimal. But the display tends to attract a lot of smudges and you will find yourself cleaning the screen too often.

The text appears sharp, because the smallest font on the phone would easily qualify as medium on any other phone. Call quality was good and the earpiece speakers are decently loud but in traffic you will need to strain your ears. We did not notice any slowdown of the device while using multiple apps or having multiple browser windows open on the m2 note. Using heavy apps does heat up the rear portion of the m2 note. We found it get warm quickly while outdoors when using photography apps or playing heavy games such as Dead Trigger 2.
Casual games play smoothly but games such as Dead Trigger 2 , Asphalt 8 need to be played on low to medium settings, else you will notice stuttering. The camera user interface offers quite a lot of interesting features for a sub Rs 10k phone. Daylight image quality is quite good and images are packed with details. The focussing speed is not the fastest, but good enough to shoot in the daylight. The HDR mode is quite subtle in the sense that there is no aggressive blowing up of highlights, which is good. Low light photographs appear a tad bit waxy when seen on full resolution.
The selfie camera is good enough for casual selfies every once in a while. The phone is powered by a 3, mAh battery which has become almost a standard for 5. The battery is non-removable of course thanks to the non-removable rear cover. PC Mark for Android gave around 8 hours 32 minutes of on-screen time and the phone easily lasted over a day of regular usage involving messaging, web-surfing, clicking and uploading images, video streaming and playing casual games.
It looks like the Chinese phone makers have cracked the value for money proposition, with the Meizu m2 note being the latest example.
The m2 note gives a decent performance and will certainly be competing with the Yu Yureka Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G in the Rs 9, price bracket. We found the Meizu m2 note to perform well on most counts and there were few areas where we found anything lacking as such in the phone. The performance is a tad bit slower when compared to Snapdragon SoC sporting devices and heating is noticeable outdoors. Barring these drawbacks, the m2 note delivers a good battery life and camera performance. At times it did miss out on detail and white balance was a little off. The front camera takes decent pictures and can also make you look good in selfies thanks to beauty settings for eyes, slim face, smoothing sic and whitening modes which have individual sliders so that you can make the right amount of adjustments.
There's even a Dressing room feature to apply more effects! The Meizu M1 Note is powered by a 1. The phone is extremely responsive and snappy with its Flyme OS software being optimized for the hardware. Scrolling was smooth and the phone was able to play Full HD video files without any problems. In synthetic benchmarks, the phone scored 40, in Antutu, 14, in Quadrant, 10, in 3DMark's Ice Storm Unlimited and 57 in Nenamark 2 benchmark tests. Unfortunately, you can't expand the storage as the phone doesn't come with a memory card slot which is such a pity.
It offers good call quality and signal reception and we did not encounter issues while making calls even in areas where cell signal is relatively weaker. However, we were able to play most popular video and audio file formats. The external speaker outlet on the phone is located at the bottom edge and we found the sound output to be too soft.
It is not stereo and there was slight distortion at higher volume levels. At Rs 11,, the Meizu M1 Note offers a plethora of features. It lacks a microSD card slot and doesn't come with the latest version of Android. Also, we still don't know much about the strength of Meizu's service network in India. While we haven't been able to use the phone for a longer period, we were impressed with the K3 Note during our brief time with the device. Look out for our full review of the phone.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i is also another good option but it doesn't support microSD cards and was plagued by heating issues when we tested it. All rights reserved.
