While there are a number of manufacturers emerging from China with high-spec, competitively priced handsets, one of those who has really made their mark on the industry is Meizu. This is a company who has brought to market device after device which not only boast an attractive build and a great level of specs, but ones that are very competitively priced. One of their latest handsets is the Meizu M3 Note and this is a device which the company managed to sell 100,000 in less than seven minutes of the smartphone going on sale. Although, it is likely they could have sold more if they wanted, as that was the total stock level that was offered as part of the launch pre-sale.
Which in truth, is not that surprising when you take a look at the specs and the price. In terms of the specs, this is a smartphone which comes boasting a 5.5-inch display and makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. There are multiple variants available which differ in their internal specs, although the leading option is the one which comes sporting 3GB RAM and is powered by 64-bit MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755) Octa-core processor. Storage is set at 32GB internally and there is the option to expand thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot (up to 128GB). Moving to the camera side of things and the Meizu M3 Note comes loaded with a 13-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing option. The Meizu M3 Note comes sporting a 4,100 mAh battery and comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, by way of the company’s own Flyme 5.1 UI. Not forgetting, this is also a dual-SIM smartphone and one which sports a fingerprint reader too. In terms of band compatibility, the Meizu M3 Note is designed to work with 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 MHz and 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600 MHz.
Moving on to the price aspect and this is a smartphone which can currently be pre-ordered from GearBest for only $298. Which when you take into consideration the specs and the premium design and build quality (which includes a full metal body), this is certainly a smartphone that is worth the money. Not to mention, that as well as the Gray edition of the smartphone, there is also a nice Gold (aka Champagne) version available to order and again, for under $300.
