This Is As Follows, Dear Fellas,
Meizu has recently conferred their redo of their “Note” device and also the truth is that when read alternative releases and announcements like MX4 professional and MX5, the primary impression concerning the M2 Note is we have a tendency to face a mid-range devices.
By the opposite hand, the M2 Note is conferred because the evolution of the money supply Note, but we discover some less power within, though paid with a cheaper price, and creating of it a really fascinating device for several consumers.

Packaging and style

It comes on a flat box, reminding U.S.A. a book (not the iPhone kind box) utterly white, within the prime aspect we discover some Chinese characters (I guess they mean Meizu) so “note2 FHD”.

In the rear half, simply a sticker with plenty of Chinese words and a few numbers remarked the specifications.

Once opened, we discover the M2 Note, a extremely small charger (although with a 2A output!), the USB cable, a cloud-shapped clip to open the cards slot (SIM/microSD) and a completely Chinese fast guide.

First impressions, it is a quality end and materials. However, if this whole is highlight among others and planning to world markets, I cannot perceive why they need place everything on Chinese. 
By the opposite hand, as we have a tendency to see every time additional, no earphones enclosed :-/

Going deeper into the main points, we’ll see on the front (going top-bottom) the secondary camera, the big 5,5” Full HD screen and only 1 physical button. No alternative physical or tactile buttons. This button is one among innovations during this device, since once we bit it (without pressing it) once, it works as “back” button, {when we have a tendency to|once we|after we} press it once it brings U.S.A. to the house screen and if we press and hold it, it’ll show the voice assistant (SmartVoice). It’s one thing strange on the primary days (missing the opposite however tons) but when a while victimization it, it is very comfy.

The lock and volume keys ar on the left aspect, thus on the correct aspect we have a tendency to simply have the slot for the SIM cards (nano or micro) and for the microSD card. once more a motivating thought since there ar 2 places on it receptacle, the primary one are going to be for a nano SIM and also the second will be used either for a small SIM or a microSD card. Most of Chinese makers opt for the twin SIM, even once most of users simply place one SIM within. thus with this method we’ve to decide on between additional storage or use 2 SIM cards.

Flipping it, we’ve the most camera (made by Samsung) with 13Mpx, a dual-tone flash junction rectifier and also the MEIZU brand on rock bottom


As mentioned on my intro, the specifications of this device aren’t “outstanding”, however largely mid-range average. It’s equipped with a sixty four bits octa core MT6753 chip from Mediatek going at one,3GHz (while alternative competitors ar delivering one,7Ghz or 2,0Ghz speeds.
On the RAM aspect, 2GB what ar over enough for a median use of a smartphone, though several alternative models come back already with 3GB because the normal for this season.

To finish the guts of the M2 Note we’ve a African country T20 GPU (also well known) which is able to be the chargeable for doing a decent work with FullHD videos and games.

 Software and transmission

It runs the newest version of golem five.1, withal the user expertise is completely different from normal golem, due to Meizu’s FlymeOS four.5 (which in seven days of use has updated to four.5.1 and 4.5.2A respectively).
A lot will be aforesaid concerning this customization of golem that in my opinion works swimmingly and really well. i am not extremely a disciple of personalization layers, however this one offers a really nice expertise and i am enjoying (and discovering several fascinating things) it.

we don’t wish to pay longer speaking concerning Flyme since it is not exclusive of this model and there ar already plenty of articles and reviews concerning it.
Some of the most characteristics ar the already mentioned approach of operating within the “Home” button with its three completely different functions (back/home/voice assistant) and a few screen gestures, like showing the notification bar once slippy from the highest with the shortcuts (Wifi, Bluetooth, Flight Mode, GPS, flashlight,…). 
When we slide from rock bottom, we’ll have a brand new bar with the open apps (quite like iOS 6). we are able to shut any app simply moving it out of that bar. straightforward and quick.

Finally if we have a tendency to slide our finger bottom-up within the middle of the screen, a probe screen is open (similar to the iPhone one, again).

Flyme comes with plenty of apps pre-installed. My impression is that they work alright… and at identical time they’re useless out of China. though the complete mobile is in English (there ar many alternative languages available) since I receive it, those applications ar solely in Chinese and with Chinese content.
It’s not a true drawback since you’ll be able to install alternative applications to perform those tasks, however why not translated them?
I’m thinking specially on the voice assistant app (called SmartVoice and really like Siri), plenty of potential, however no use for the instant.

Another of the applications that has taken aback ME is that the Music one. after I received this mobile, I traced some music to check it, and after I opened the app, it continually showed ME “Music on the device” and “Online Music”.
So i attempted it, and everything perceived to be in Chinese with Chinese artists… however once explored alittle bit additional, I found international teams and artists. thus I browsed it and, you’ll be able to listen AND transfer any song with none copyright issue :-O
The catalog is big, thus if you wish music, this is often another valuable purpose, you’ll be able to stream or transfer the music while not having to pay monthly fees.


we were not expecting such a lot from this smartphone camera, as a result of after I saw “13Mpx camera by Samsung” I mechanically although in “IMX214 camera factory-made by Sony” that we are able to see in nearly each smartphone today, and that commonly suggests that sensible footage with sensible light-weight conditions however terribly poor results with low light-weight or night footage (even victimization flash), and additionally a slow focus.
Taking nice footage of landscapes throughout the day, however awful footage once there’s movement (kids, dog,…) or the night is coming back.

In the gift case, i have to say that additionally to Flyme, and also the Music app, the camera has been the best surprise. It focus and shoots quite quick and if you hold the button, it’ll shoot a burst of photos. additionally between the pic modes we are able to notice slow-motion and a quite complete manual mode.


It’s a non-removable 3100mAh battery factory-made by Sony, and when many days of usage I will say far more length than for instance the uleFone Be bit, even with a heavier use (mainly taking and viewing footage, WiFi and GPS). Up to now, I ne’er had to charge it before the tip of the day.


I’ve shared delicacies also as unhealthy ones (or ought to improve) concerning this model.
In a terribly expected value, i used to be positive it is a mid-range device, however when many days victimization it, it’s build ME assume if a mid-range from a decent whole (even a Chinese one) will be higher than a flagship from {a new|a replacement|a whole new} brand… and even currently i am not clear concerning it, since the user expertise has been superb, and that i do not know nevertheless if i’ll begin victimization it over my uleFone Be bit.

The execs ar terribly clear, works fast, quality within the materials, light-weight within the hand, an excellent FullHD screen and really sensible footage (even nightly). And with a worth below $140.
