They had to cut costs somewhere so the MT6752 SoC and Mali T760 found on the M1 Note both had to be replaced with cheaper components. It should also be noted that the $130 price tag (999 RMB) is available ONLY in China. Resellers will markup the price by at least 30%. It's still not confirmed if this phone will work on any LTE band in the US or Canada.
Here's a link from GizChina regarding the phone's poor performance compared with the M1 Note:
Ok, speaking strictly from a layman's perspective, as someone who only uses a phone for Instagram and some heavy social networking such as Whatsapp, LINE, Viber, Kakao and We Chat, some PDF reading here and there, YouTube at times at 360p and a endless number of images and screenshots, with no games or heavy usage at all whatsoever (no Facebook either), are the specs that everyone's been fighting about worthy of carrying out the stated activities without any lags whatsoever? That'll have to be my only concern. So, please pour in those verdicts and replies. It'll do wonders to help me get this over its predecessor anyday. The prime reason I'm rooting for the M2 Note will have to be the option of the expandable storage and that understated metallic grey option. The M1 Note frankly featured a range of horrendous neon like hues. Thanks a mill.
This phone specs with the assigned price (130$) is unbelievable. It is equal (regarding specs) to S6 (700$)
m2 note might have finger print scanner, according to this site: http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/b11d3461
LOOKS BETTER THAN IPHONE 6/6+
Apple should learn from Meizu how to make an iphone6 with sexy bezels.

Thin bezel/bezeless screens are famous these days,so is the 4k video recording capability.
They have downgraded both the gpu and the processor just to include a micro sd card slot and a fancy home button. I am pretty sure that it wont offer the same performance as meizu m1 note.
AshokRahi, 02 Jun 2015Ouch... No FM Radio .well i think m1 note is still a best buy i.e if you are not so concern about SD Card.
why they not included radio in budget phone?? these guys dont understand the users benefits..
