2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Decent looking design, and good build quality, with a milled aluminium back
  • The edges of the device are curved, and accompanied by the aluminum borders provide a nice grip
  • The fingerprint sensor on the device works well and is pretty snappy
  • Very good, bright 5.5inch Full HD display
  • Also comes with the Ambient display feature, that allows the device to wake up whenever a new notification comes - its pretty handy
  • Comes with stock Android experience, keeping things nice and simple
  • Strong, reliable performance based on the Snapdragon 625 - things are snappy all over - benchmark scores are good too, and if fact slightly above the Redmi Note 4 & Lenovo K8 Plus, and comparable to the higher priced Mi A1
  • Decent set of rear dual cameras - both normal shots and bokeh shots comes out reasonably well
  • Front camera is decent too - the images are generally quite clear and bright
  • Very good battery life too - easily lasts over a day and a half on medium usage
  • Supports fast charging - goes from 0 to 100% in about 100 minutes
  • Supports tronX IoT platform, which allows you to easily manage and control all the smart devices around you
  • Uses the modern USB Type-C port, which is not very common in the mid-range
  • On the whole, the phone proves to be a very good all-rounder - it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table of the current crop of mid-ranger - but it implements everything well, and coupled with the stock Android UI, makes for a good all-round device, that will give tough competition in this price segment
  • Decent plastic build
  • Removable-battery design - something that's hard to find now-days
  • Pretty accurate face unlock
  • Decent 5.45-inch HD+ 18:9 screen - which is about as good as you can expect on a budget device in terms of color, sharpness and general quality
  • Near-stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple - and there is also very little bloatware
  • Reasonable camera setup for the price bracket - you get a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera - while they of course struggle in low-light conditions, regular light will give you images that are usable and entirely shareable on social media
  • Battery life is good, largely because of the energy-efficient hardware on the device - the low-resolution screen, frugal chipset and 3000mAh battery size contribute to giving you well over a day’s use on a single charge
  • As a first smartphone (if you are upgrading from a feature phone), and with a strict budget of Rs. 5, 000 - the Meizu C9 is a pretty decent choice
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Somewhat clunky design - not as stylish as it's main competitor, the Xiaomi Mi A1
  • The back is a bit of a finger-print magnet
  • Rear camera performance in low light could have been better
  • On the whole the camera quality is decent but a notch below it's top competitor - the Xiaomi Mi A1
  • Average performance, as you would expect with this price bracket - uses a Unisoc (earlier called Spreadtrum) SC9832E quad-core 1.3GHz chipset to power the device - it's a very basic chipset - you can only expect basic performance - loading apps takes a couple of seconds - but as long as you don't use the phone to run multiple apps and graphically-intensive games, you will be ok
  • If you can spend a bit more though, you want to look at the Redmi 6A or Honor 7S - which will give you a better bang for the buck
