Been using this 6 months now, have a few phones but this one is the perfect size.
Battery is OK if not the best.
Biggest downsides are lack of updates and no NFC.
Would like the same phone with better internal specs and a better price.
It's an all right phone, I got it two months ago. The stereo speakers aren't great, that was one of the main reasons I was interested. But otherwise it's light, compact and runs pretty fast with the Flyme UI. Camera is great too. For £200 it's a great phone
just bougth the phone becuase my oneplus 3t screen broke
this phone isn't good he is ok for temperory phone and nothing more
I don't have any problems with worry about the latest security software update. I don't care, there's nothing sensitive on my phone, I use it to talk.
Mr. Monoxs, 14 Jul 2018As GSMArena said : "If you feel comfortable with limited support and no more software updates... moreI personally do, I run now on an almost 5 years old LG G2 with Android 5 and will only change because its starting overheating with moderate use and battery doesn't last much anymore. For me the updates are useless as they drain more power from batteries and you get very little in return as for security, I don't use any sensitive info on my phones anyway so I don't care much.
This phone has the perfect dimensions that I'm looking for, even more compact than my previous best phone Meizu MX4.
And front fingerprint scanner is a bonus. But 2 cons:
1) 3000 mAH is small and Meizu software is not exactly the most battery efficient. We're have appreciated atleast 3,500 mAH unit.
2) PRICE. $400 is too much. I guess I'll wait for the price to come down to less than $300 once Meizu 16 comes out.

"If you feel comfortable with limited support and no more software updates, it is definitely a worthwhile option"
tinchow, 08 Jul 2018this phone looks awesome, and has very nice features, but costing more than u$400 is simply to... moreyeah, 'cause the redmi note 5 has the SD 660, a 2160p camera with OIS (NOT EIS) (also, Meizu Camera has far better camera than Xiaomi), Type C usb, 24W fast charging (compared to QC 3.0 with 18W),
tinchow, with the Meizu 16 coming the prices are dropping every week on the 15. Aliexpress is down to $378 for the Meizu 15 right now.
I really 2 want this phone and hope it will be available in indonesia at the reasonable price
this phone looks awesome, and has very nice features, but costing more than u$400 is simply too much, I can get a Redmi Note 5 for half the price!
hinshal, 06 May 2018Not plastic, but high grade polished metal. The white version I don't think is metal because it does not have any cut outs and plastic for antennas, all other colors have and that is a proof are metal, except white.
I don't use either face ID or fingerprint to lock my phone. I leave it unlocked. The fingerprint scanner sure is small in size. I don't use mtouch either either and am not completely sure what it is. I think you mean navigating using that small fingerprint scanner, which I just tried so that I could respond to your question. For me not as easy as navigating using the three symbols at the bottom of the screen, left arrow for back; circle for home and a box which show the apps which are open; or I just swipe the screen to navigate, I am an old dog; not quick at learning new tricks.
I can tell you for sure it does not support a micro memory card. I bought the 64 GB version of the phone, liked it so much I figured I would buy a 64 GB memory card and bought one, just being indulgent as I didn't expect the increase in memory would affect anything. When I went to install the memory card....whoa......won't fit in the SIM tray. Only room for two nano SIM cards, no room for a memory card, Yea some reviews say it supports a memory card; fooled me.
