Meizu M6 Note First Impressions
Meizu, one of the largest smartphone companies hailing from China, recently introduced their newest addition to the mid-range smartphone market– the Meizu M6 Note. The said device will hit the Philippine market sometime next month, but what does it have to offer? Find out in our first impressions!
The M6 Note has the conventional construction with the exception of a full-metal unibody. It has a 5.5-inch screen that boasts a Full HD LTPS 1920 x 1080 resolution display with 2.5d glass protection. The front panel’s design will be familiar to most, but holding it gives off a premium feel due to its metal construction. It is also easy to hold, thanks to its chamfered edges.
The UI is Meizu’s own take on Android—the device is running a skinned version of Android called Flyme 6.0 OS .
Up top, we have some sensors, the call speaker, and the 16MP front camera. The top, bottom, and sides of the front glass panel is slightly curved for a better and more sophisticated look and feel.
On the left side, we will find the shiny hybrid SIM tray.
Moving to the opposite side are the volume rockers and power/lock button. They are nested but they do stick out just a bit. The buttons have little-to-no wobble, making them feel solid and satisfying to click.
Down below is the home button, which is slightly pressed inwards. It also doubles as a fingerprint scanner, as well as the back button.
At the bottom portion of the smartphone, we find the 3.5mm port, the noise-canceling microphone, the micro-USB charging port, and the loud speakers.
Flipping the phone, we will find the dual 12MP+5MP f/1.9 cameras; the smaller one being flushed against the phone, while the bigger one is slightly protruding. Just above the cameras is the quad-LED dual tone flash, which happens to align with the white antenna bands up top.
Inside the box, the Meizu M6 Note comes with a charger cable, a charger brick, a sim ejector tool, and some manuals encased in a very well constructed, cardboard box.
The Meizu M6 is solid in terms of performance, with its 3GB RAM and Snapdragon 625 chip. It can handle every possible program you could want on a mid-ranger. It is powered by 4000mAh battery, which is above average in comparison to most mid-range smartphones. It also has quick charge capabilities so you can expect great battery life, but we’ll see how it performs in our upcoming full review so tune in and don’t miss it!
Local pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
