2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Nice, smooth and glossy finish - pretty good for this price bracket
  • Decent IPS LCD display with the 2.5D curved glass protection - produces punchy colours, and viewing angles are good
  • No notch 'classic' design - which is a rarity now for a 'tall' display - so if you don't like notches, this might be up your alley
  • The Flyme OS UI on top is decent, and pretty fluid, in spite of the limited hardware
  • Decent overall performance for day-to-day use - the MT6750 is similar to Snapdragon 435 - the device handles multiple apps and will generally switching between them seamlessly - simple games also run well
  • Decent dual rear camera setup - the colours turn out real vibrant, especially for the photographs clicked in the broad daylight - and macros have a good level of detail
  • Decent video recording quality in daylight
  • Decent selfie camera in daylight
  • Decent bottom firing speaker
  • Good battery life, with a 3300mAh battery + some good optimization - the phone will last a day and more on a single charge
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • Sunlight legibility is average
  • The bezels are significant, making the phone look a bit old-school
  • Runs on the old Android 7.0
  • While Flyme OS UI all about gestures, but the implementation is not the most intuitive and will take time getting used to
  • It tends to get a bit warm after long times of navigation or gaming
  • Low light photography and videography is average though
  • Bokeh effect is also average - edge detection could have been better
  • Overall, the M6T is a decent budget smartphone - but doesn't quite stand out against well-established competitors like the Realme C1 and Redmi 6 - and the old software is a let-down too

  2. When placed next to other smartphones from the same range such as Redmi 6 and Realme C1, it gives good competition on paper but quite not in the real world
