I'll liked this cheap phone. All this years I liked trying to buy cheap phones. And I just bought this phone last night. I know a lot of people complaing about Google application not available on the phone. When I first time turning on the phone, I just update my phone from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 and then goto Hot Apps you will see a popup an update available 2.0.1 just go ahead and update. After clicking that looked carefully above that say "Google Mobile Services hasn't been installed yet, which might affect your use of apps." and there is install button near it go ahead click install. That's it! Problem solved and I have no issues with it.

At the begging I really liked the phone. No bloatware, excellent usability. I would have given 5 out of 5 even though a lot of early reviews pointed to a lot hardware shortcomings. From usability viewpoint it was great. But after the recent upgrade (in November, 2016), I should say, that I would had to retract that. The upgrade is completely broken: notifications don't work, google maps is hectic, after wifi gets turned off it's impossible to get it back (as soon as you turn it on it goes off). I couldn't use anymore Android Wear (it doesn't start). It eats the battery much faster even though in the upgrade announcement they claim it should consume less battery (it used to last almost for 2 days, now hardly one). After the upgrade it was so bad that I had to "factory reset". But that didn't help much. I should note that the phone didn't have any of those issues before. It's quite sad that such a good product got abandoned by Meizu. Final verdict: 1 out of 5. Don't waste your money.
villa, 22 Nov 2016Go to hot apps and search Google then the service will be activated. I did this but it won't install play store and maps
One of the finest phone I had, No ad by the manufacturer, but a very nice phoe. Aftr latest update battery life has improved tremendously. The single button operation with finger print sensor is a bliss to operate.
Would have bee happy if the phone could have bright colors.
Using this phone for 2 month now, only thing I dislike about this phone is it camera.

Best phone I ever bought well... For the first 8fays that is then it won't recognize Google Play and play services so that means that YouTube and Google Maps nolonger work... Waist my time and money now I have to travel an hour each way to return to the shop. Won't buy another Meizu really loved the phone till today. Seem lots of people having trouble with google apps and this phone due to its 3party OS. FLYME. Thanks Meizu rip off a big company like google think you can make your own version of Android but they make you pay for no actually it's the poor people who foolishly bought your product. Like be very bitter now. And sad cause I really did love this phone.

WORST company ever
Trying to make you have their own apps, mofo's! you cant even delete them.
First they took out the DiracHD - it was a really good sound and audio enhancer, replaced it with some bad app.
Even Google play store is now unavailable and replaced with some weird app they put instead, that you cant even delete.
And even more - the notification problems like whatsApp not getting any messages until you enter the app, its a known problem since last year and still they done nothing to fix it.
the last device ill ever buy from this goddamn a**holes, and they're not even cheap.
