Meizu’s M2 Arriving in PH Via Lazada, Priced At Php 5,499

Meizu-m2

Want something smaller than the M2 Note?

If you’re looking for a nice, bang for the buck phone but don’t want to settle for the 5.5-inch Meizu M2 Note, then you’re in luck. Revü got a heads up that the M2 will be arriving in the PH via Lazada starting December 4.

Meizu M2 specs

  • 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core MT6735 processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 5-inch HD display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • Android 5.0 with Flyme UI
  • 2500mAh battery

The M2 follows the same design DNA as the M2 Note, mainly sporting a distinctly Apple-y polycarbonate body though it has a smaller screen, lower processor and slightly lowered specs compared to its bigger brother. Still, at Php 5,499, it’s a great deal, specifically if you’re looking for a nice looking secondary phone for yourself.

  1. The only let down with Meizu is it has no service center aside from the very limited Novotech branches. That is one aspect Meizu needs to address otherwise it will remain a fringe player in the smartphone market. All they need is to widen their distribution network that has an in-house service department. Relying on Novotech to do that for them is a losing proposition.

    1. tama sir yung thl t6s namin wala pa 1 year nagsilobo na yung batt nagtanong kami sa mga branch nila at customer service wala silang maibigay sa amin kaya di maasahan yang novotech 7

  2. Personal review:
    Screen – very good, and very sharp. Very colorful fully laminated display but not overly saturated.compared it side by side with zenfone 5, its got better contrast, viewing angles and overall display quality.

    Build quality – phone is very light and the plastic contruction is not at all bad, for a phone priced at around 5k, its really very good. Nothing to complain. Yes agree ako mahirap ito isuggest sa iba kasi nga walang service center, pero mukhang swerte naman ako sa unit ko, walang defects, nacheck ko na lahat, fully working naman. Wala pa naman ako nabasang defective m2’s sa grouo namin

    Battery life: very good, last for almost 2 days, screen on time reaches 7-8 hours, which sounds impressive compared to zenfones inferior 2 hour screen on time battery life. Inggit nga ako eh kasi mas maganda pa phone ng mama ko na binigay ko sa kanya. Haha. Planning to buy moto x pure soon tho(lagi ako nanghihiram ng meizu m2 niya. Haha. And really enjoyed it)

    Software : very smooth ang overall device, kunti lang preinstalled and mostly pwede pa mauninstall. Impressss na imress ako kasi software out of the box, wala akong nakitang bug. Compared sa zenfone ko na daming software bugs, and matagal pa talaga nila na fix. Ngayon may mga firmware updates sila to fix problems, na di ko pa naman naexperience, pero atleast may timely updates :) *****animations is realllly smooooth. Di ko alam pano nila to nagawa, sa zenfone 5 ko parang di smooth ang animations, mukhang kunti lang frames per second.

    Camera: not the best but better than zenfones overhyped camera. Lesser noise at lowlight situations and videos, more detailed and sharper pics and has better dynamic range.(zenfones camera has very contrasty image and the detail is like a painted pixel, which is very visible when you zoomin). Sa meizu m2 is very opposite, which is ofcourse impressive

    Summary: if 5k lang budget niyo and you want to have a backup phone, the best na ito. And if you want to upgrade but on a tight budget, highly suggested ko din ito. If you buy this phone maiimpress talaga kayo dahil mukhang di 5k ang price niya. It matches the specs of a midrange samsung or lg phones na may 15k pricetag. Thumbsup to meizu. Sana lang magtayo sila ng service center to some places like cebu.

    Ps. at first, nagdududa din ako kasi nga mukhang di gaanong kilala ang meizu. Nabasa ko naman sa lazada mataas ang rating niya at very positiv ang comments, so nagtry ako, which is very satisfied naman mama ko. :)
