    Be careful as one of their celeb spokespersons is Pamela Anderson. While you may not mind her being all over you on this issue, I'm sure the wife won't approve and may skin you both...

    These are the triumvirate I use now...with all due respect to the M7, the Moto X knocked it off my list.

    Still, the M7 takes decent shots (lighting wasn't so great) and is indicative as to the frustrating slope HTC finds itself on...

    My mini review of the Meizu M1 Note after using it as a daily driver for 11 days. For the price, this phone cannot be beat.
    It retails for $160 in India and a bit less in China.

    Pros
    Fast, and fluid Flyme OS. It is an iOS clone and a decent one at that. Visually it is better than Xiaomi MiUI but functionally the Xiaomi is better.
    Camera is stellar
    Screen is amazing
    Build quality, feel in hand and ergonomics are great

    Cons
    Forked Android - has some issues, specific details to follow. Main gripe is with the keyboard selection.
    GPS is wonky, cannot get Google Maps to work consistently on this phone as it loses GPS signal all the time.
    Data toggling is a bit slow and so if Wi-Fi to data toggling as well
    Calls don't always go through at first try. Have to dial a second time to get a clean connection. This is a radio issue and has been discussed on a couple of other reviews as well.
    Splits messages from iPhones into two categories - one sent from the Meizu and one received from the iPhone, which is a bit annoying.

    Details on software quibbles:
    When using a 3rd party keyboard (like Google Keyboard), on a non Meizu app, like Hangouts for instance, that trying to fix a word or move the cursor simply doesn’t work. You need to put the keyboard away to move the cursor, and it has something to do with the built-in system keyboard on the phone. I did not want to root the phone and get rid of the stock keyboard. Despite force stopping the default keyboard this issue persists and also every time a 3rd party keyboard is uses a notification about selecting a input method pops up. This is a big bug and needs to be fixed in a future update for sure.


    The way volume is controlled on the phone is quite odd. The volume rockers adjust media volume at all times no matter what you’re doing, so adjusting the volume is done only by going into settings. This is quite annoying to say the least.


    In settings you can only view items in portrait mode and cannot get more details like Screen On Time gets cut off after x hours and....so now way to know full SOT information.

    And I actually had to own an M8 Windows while I was getting the 1520 fixed...it wasn't an awful experience by any means but i still find the M8 windows an inferior device to lumias and nothing special :D

    I had the 6+ when they first came out. I had thought of leaving Windows Phone then because i was a bit meh towards it(bored with it)...but within 2-3 days i came back to my 1520.

    Mind you i have a 1520 and have been using it since Launch day, so a 6+ is not big at all.

    I am back on the iPhone 6 and it is so tiny compared to my 1520 and my 640 XL but at the same time...it is small yet it fits into my hand perfectly as well. It's mainly reading things on it is a bit crazy to me as i am used to having a 6 inch or now a 5.7 inch screen to read on lol.

    Nice write up. For the record, I'd have rooted that thing already just for the keyboard issue and to flash better radios, assuming the dev support was there (which it might be, as I haven't checked it out for this model).

    All in all, sounds par the course for the Chinese OEMs these days...absolutely destroying the big boys in the mid range with great hardware to price ratio. Curious to see how the successor shapes out...thought I read something that the price may go up slight with its successor...

    Lol.

    I can relate to that eye adjusent thing. It was murder going from a Z Ultra to a 1520 to a 925 when I had all three of those at one time. Because my Moto X, 930 and Z3 have all the same sizes, reading is easy. Plus, my eyes have adjusted to my Z3 tablet compact too, so going from that screen to my phones have gotten much easier to do.

    While Apple has hit it right screen size wise with the 6, phone is just too big for that sized screen.

    Oh no bendgate had no factor in it...I simply won a Free iPhone 6 from T-Mobile lol.

    They were giving away 500 phones and I had the choice of a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5, LG G4, and iPhone 6....
    I refuse to use Android even if it was free

    So I chose the iPhone 6.

    I would've loved if they offered the Lumia 640(since it is new) even though I have the 640 XL and until recently 1520 and I might have even settled with a free M8 windows again....but alas a windows phone wasn't offered so I chose the iPhone. Unfortunately it wasn't the 6 plus and I only got the 16 GB version...but for free, I cant be too choosy or complain haha

    I see it this way....iPhones have high resell value so in a few months when the new lumia out, it'll pay for my new lumia :D

    I must say, I'm looking forward to seeing how Android 5.1 runs on the newer flagships. It runs great on the Moto X. I'd swap my X out for a Moto Maxx but they're too overpriced and hard to find.

    Looking g forward to the comparison between Android M, the latest iOS and Windows 10 in the fall for sure...

    Makes sense - cannot beat free in that situation. Sad but true at the high resell rate of iPhones. As popular as Samsung is, their resell rates aren't great.

    I see your love for Android is still in tact...I'm trying to figure out what you love to knock down a peg or two more...HTC or Android?

    M2 Note is cheaper than M1 Note so price went down istead of up.
    Dev support is negligible because Aliyun OS locks down the bootloader. Alibaba owns Meizu and they are busy dictating terms here.
    Phone is rooted but since there is no dev support I don't want to delete the stock keyboard and then find out if the phone gets bricked because of that particular app missing from the device.....ergo....

    Well contrary to popular belief on Windows Central, I don't hate HTC lol.

    Fun Fact: Prior to my love for windows phone, I was an Android fanboy....and out of the 40 or so android phones I owned, most were HTC :D

    HTC Droid Eris, Evo, Droid Incredible, Sensaiton, One X, and various other models I wont recall...My original Windows Phone was an 8x...which I think is beautiful.

    So I love HTC I just expect more than this subpar mess they call the m8 and M9....and I think they are inferior to Lumias :D
    There's a chance I could own an HTC windows phone as my main device over a Lumia....However, I cant see myself ever using another android phone again.

    So Android it is :D
