This phone is not Google Certified and should not have been sold outside of China.
Yes you can install Google Play but even after setting all the right permissions there are still problems with syncing, games closing etc.
Google Pay doesn't work and as other people have said the GPS is terrible, doesn't seem to work indoors at all.
Also no Band 20. It's also very wide, no good for people with smaller hands.
Apparently Meizu has now got an agreement with Google and their newer phones will be certified but this one never will be.
The GPS/location is terrible. 30 dolars smartphones has better Gps than this phone. The rest is excelent.
I don't get notifications from any application except WhatsApp, fb, Instagram. Apps like gmail (those with important notifications) do not notify me, although I turned all the notifications on from the settings of the app and general settings. Any thoughts?
for less than 200$
"meizu pro 6 plus" better than "xiaomi redmi note 5 AI dual camera" ?
Answering to many people with android updates doubts: The smarthphone uses a company's version of android named flyme os. This phone started with flyme os 6 (based on android marshmallow) but it is now getting the update to flyme os 7 (based on android nougat). The official site already has the link to download it if your phone is not getting the update: http://www.flymeos.com/firmwarelist?modelId=46&type=1.
Expect flyme os 8 (based on android oreo) to be released in around 1 year time (August 2019) has the flyme os is always 1 year behind the android version release but it's very well optimized.

Got my Pro 6 Plus yesterday. The build quality and in hand feel of this phone is fantastic.
Ditched the global firmware, installed 6.01 chinse firmware and then updated to Flyme 7 Beta. I must say that this version of flyme is very nice. Smoother and better looking than Flyme 6. I also like the face unlock feature.
