It's just a skin, get over yourself No, you're wrong.
Every "skin" isn't just a theme, but a full-OS. If it helps, think of this as like Linux PopOS vs Ubuntu... even though they're very identical, its actually not just a re-skin but an overhaul underneath the skin.
As for Meizu, they've generally made good devices but the software has been great.
It is one of the few SkinnedOS that I actually like and will tolerate. It's definitely in my Top 3. Whereas something like Stock AndroidOne (with 3-year upgrades!) would be my Top 2. My favourite Custom ROM is ResurrectionRemix, and is my Top 1 preference.
However, I must warn that some phones have a port of FlymeOS and MIUI and it is never optimised well as the proper firmware. So I can merely dream about an "ultimate device" like the Samsung S10+ (Snapdragon) coming with proper FlymeOS, AndroidOne, or ResurrectionRemix. It's just not going to happen, so the power-user and enthusiast part of me has to compromise with either a Pixel (too pricey) or OnePlus (other downgrades).

People should support brands like asus, nubia/zte and meizu so other more popular brands have more competition and be more consumer friendly. Besides, for me, these 3 have tried to innovate more kkor at least not join the bandwagon on their latest phones meizu 16s, asus zenfone 6 /rog 2, nubia x/nubia z20)
