2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good build quality, and design - feels quite nice in the hand
  • Fingerprint scanner is reasonably quick

Display

  • Slightly washed out display

Software

  • Meizu's custom UI is not the most refined

Performance

  • Performance is ok but falls behind competing phones from the likes of Xiaomi
  • Tends to get warm too, when put under some stress

Camera

  • Average camera, again falling behind competing phones like those of Xiaomi

Battery

  • Good all-day battery life
  • Battery is slow to recharge

More

  • No FM Radio
