I own the Meizu 15 for 3 days now and my first impressions are all positive with no negative... moreDid you end up getting any updates at all? I am also interested in getting the 15 standard version, since it is such a nice small form factor with a very decent hardware.
Looking at Meizu 15 Lite specs... 20MP @1.4 µm?! Even 20MP at 1/2.3" are only about 1.12 µm.... Are you kidding?
There's should be a mistyping.
I own the Meizu 15 for 3 days now and my first impressions are all positive with no negatives. I like the small and light dimensions, for me even thinner like 70 mm would be better, but 72 mm is ok. The screen is nice, speakers nice, no bloatware came with it. My International seller installed multi language and google play store apps, which work. Then he cautioned me that OTA upgrades are not available and I have no idea what that means. Does that mean no OTA upgrades for the multi language? or no OTA upgrades for anything at all? If I can't get new security patches and software upgrades at all then I may regret buying it from an International seller; I just don't know what will and will not be able to get OTA upgrades. Other than that worry, I am very happy with the phone.
I bought the phone from an International seller as I was so eager to get it I didn't want to wait who knows how long for it to be available in Thailand. It seems many people use the international sellers who usually state "no OTA updates" in their product listings. And I just figured, well, somethings probable OTA updates, but that's just a guess.
So far I haven't gotten any update available notices. On my old phone goggle apps tended to update at least weekly, so I guess I'll find out fairly soon if this phone will update at all. If it can't OTA upgrade I wonder if I can log into google or Flyme and upgrade in that manner, or use my laptop as an intermediary to update? I have no idea.
I am fun of Meizu's phones for five years. You are doing good job for now but I suggest you to focus more on international level and then you will be the best.
It has the best zoom. P20 pro has a rubbish sensor on the 3rd lens.
For the price u are getting it is pretty good, especially that EXYNOS 8890; even though it may be a year old, but it still packs a punch. I like the back design really, probably because it looks like it is inspired by HUAWEI's MATE series which I really like. GSMARENA if u guys received the retail package of the smartphones, try reviewing it, I would like to see how it stacks up to the MEIZU PRO 7 series
Sound pretty good. I heard a rumor that Verizon Wireless could add Meizu into their ecosystem.
meizu 15+ back more inspired by my 1 year + Mi 5s Plus... even Mi 5s Plus design is better... no refreshing design
Nougat out of the box when oreo is already around the corner? Meizu is doomed
Weird fingerprint design, they must put the capsule fingerprint design
Interested in 15 Plus, unfortunately Meizu choose to put QHD panel on it. Bye battery life & gaming fluidity.
Love 16:9, nice harmonic format. Next step - piss off thick 2.D glass and go back to ,,touch the display / no air gap" concept ...
Its great to see "USB C" on these devices! Good work Meizu, love U.
Glad to see some OEMs sticking with 16:9AR with a respectable 80+% stb ratio and no Notch...well done Meizu. The camera specs and battery look ok but would have loved to see a 4000+mAh battery.
I have tried but can't really fall in love with these skinny elongated 18:9AR devices (even worst with curved screens)...looks odd , makes me feel like handling a remote control. That said i can settle for 17:9AR though 16:9AR is my preference.
