Meizu, a Chinese brand well-known for its pocket friendly products, might give a tough time to its country fellow Xiaomi’s Redmi series buy introducing the Meizu M6 Note; strictly a mid-range smartphone by features but an entry-level one by the price tag. Meizu hasn’t released a phone with a Snapdragon processor in quite some time which makes the M6 Note all the more important.
If you are thinking for a high-end design, you might be wrong as it is a mid-range smartphone featuring a clean metal-based build. The display itself comes with a 5.5-inch IPS panel having 1080p resolution. Below it is a fingerprint scanner on an otherwise bland and generic front.
The Meizu M6 Note comes pre-loaded with Android 7.1.2 Nougat with Flyme OS and is Dual SIM by default. Under the hood, we get a Snapdragon 625 processor along with Adreno 506 GPU and several RAM and storage options. The 3 GB RAM variant comes with either 16 or 32 GB storage, while the 4 GB version amps it to 64 GB. However, storage is expandable via a microSD card slot, so you won’t go wrong with any variant you buy.
On the camera front, the Meizu M6 Note comes with a 12 MP main Sony IMX362 camera alongside a secondary 5 MP camera and a 4-LED Flash setup. Be sure that the dual-camera setup here is one of the most-accessible for its price. The software tricks include the bokeh effect and depth sensing. The focusing time is also said to be a fast 0.03 seconds. The camera on the front has the highest resolution at 16 MP. All the cameras are capable of 1080p video.
Meizu brings a powerful 4,000 mAh battery aided by 18W fast-charging feature. Flyme OS is well optimized and might get you a 2 day long battery life owing to the low power SoC (Snapdragon 625).
