My first Meizu was M5c(almost accidentally, then I was always more inclined towards Galaxy Note, I bought M5c as an no money temporary solution), it is an above average solid budget phone,and I get what people dont like... FlyOS and Home 3D button, but you switch to GooglePlay effortlessly(2 min) and Home button copied the best stuff from Android and Apple(you literally need 2 min. to check what all it can do and to get accustomed to it).
But Meizu became my household brand when I bought PRO6 4gb/64gb and figured out Meizu is on to something here,got blown away just how great it looks,feels&works. Unibody(from one part of metal) is great, it's among Top 5 thinnest phones out there(I compared it with Mi A2 and Poco F1 and they look like they are from 2013, just how fat & plastic they look/feel compared to), it feels great in hand,doesn't slip, build feels so solid, camera&flash is great, it's fast and never gets clunky BECAUSE the first time in history of smartphones: leftover "bloatware" of FlyOS is actually totally useful stuff(that keeps phone fresh and fast+some apps i didn't even knew i need(like autorec phonecalls, also whole toolbox is useful) I didn't saw on any other smartphone.Also, design is finally something different(no notches or such nonsense), it feels like vinyl of smartphone world, it has small but loyal following who "get it".
Meizu put some real thought when they build them, 5,2" is perfect if you use it as an daily driver,fast with 1 or 2 hands,feels great when gamin or watching movies. Also, I never had a problem with hardware , ever.. and I'm at my 4th Meizu(Pro6 Plus)..
And then I saw Meizu 16th White( most beautiful smartphone on the planet, bar none) and guess what will my next smartphone be :)!
Remember, this come's from Samsung Galaxy Note ex-fanboy and I know I sound almost as some shill , but if there was ever an unjustly bad-rep brand than it's Meizu.
Regret every second that I bought it. Works fine for a year, and then begins restarting out of nowhere and each reboot is like 10 minutes, because of it's operating system Flyme, which is being released without checking at all.
AnonD-687528, 29 Jul 2017just a question. Do u have any problem with the gps fix？Not a lot. there are times the GPS needs calibration. but most of the time it's decent-ish.
AnonD-687528, 29 Jul 2017just a question. Do u have any problem with the gps fix？the GPS is pretty decent tbh. it does it's work and calibrate fairly fast. it does needs help from WIFI and the cellular antennas when the distance error marginality is large. but all in all. it's decent. not as crappy as everyone claim.
a great phone. I admit the preformance is really great. but I am kinda disappointed from the GPU. it certainly needs more oomph.
worst phone ever.
Is not worth buying it.
The battery is not powerful enough to sustain the chipset, plus the gps feature is crap
I won't buy anything else from meizu.

Hey guys, can't decide which one to buy: meizu pro 6 or huawei p10 lite? please write your opinions!!!
lowe, 29 Aug 2016I had the same problem with my mx5. You have to use the developer version of flyme. It has the... moreI have same opinion, the stores of Chinese phones put on their devices bad roms, I had a meizu mx5 and I was very disappointed and sad after my purchased, but if you install developer ROM of flyme os English/Chinese
Use root and topntp
The cameras improves almost 3 times of autofocus quality, battery life and everything
I'm sure is going to be the same with pro 6
I just wished there was an IR for TV and Air conditioned, like on Xiaomi phones
Very good phone, good camera. Fingerprint works very well. The only complaints is about the news popping up often in Chinese, and I can't get rid of that, except by rooting... but then the sync on Meizu account is lost. All network I tried are working well (Asia, Europe)
I have the phone fm 3 months. I'm quite satisfied since I was coming fm iPhones.
Generally the phone is fast, stable, and with a good endurance. Using his quick charger is at 100% in not more than an hour. Photos are nice as screen resolution. Dual sim is efficient, tested worldwide flying around the world as data performances. I'm using original software only with 2 sim from different countries.
With a sd slot available will be perfect.
Can you believe this phone using Super Amoled but cant even reach infinite contrast level like the other phones using amoled screen? Meizu is so bad at callibrating their hardware. The color accuracy of white is way off. It pretty much bad. Not just slightly but really really blueish. What the hell Meizu? That blue wallpaper not hidding your flaw at all.
Guys, please don't buy this Chinese copy product. I read specifications and bought that few month ago and i had lots of problems.
1 - GPS doesn't work (i tried everything to fix but still couldn't fix)
2 - it was fast before but getting slow day by day, i don't believe this numbers (4gb ram, deca core)
3 - network is disappearing sometimes
4 - doesn't have NFC
5 - i am living with charge, ok, its true that quick charging but the same way quick decharging
6 - warranty doesn't care if you have problems, they are recommending that give phone for a month and not giving you phone instead, 1 month i have to wait without phone.
so i am trying to sell this phone half price and planning to buy a phone from the real companies like as sony or samsung...
