After the Pro 6 flop, Meizu has finally released an interesting device again.
With its 5 inch, 720p, 2.5D screen the m3 is not only a half inch smaller than its bigger brother, but also almost only half as expensive as it.
For a price of 599RMB (85â‚¬/95$) for 16GB or 799RMB (110â‚¬/125$ ) for 32GB internal eMMC 5.0 storage, you get a quite powerful device, featuring an eight-core MTK6750, a Mali T860 and 2GB/3GB LPDDR3 RAM, just like a 13MP back camera with a 0.2s focus and a 5MP front one. Yet thats not everything, besides a solid hardware you will also get a 2870mAh battery and VoLTE support.
Talking about VoLTE â€“ even though the m3 doesnâ€™t supports European bands it still features a wide range of them including 4G and even dual sim support.
Furthermore the m3 is sold in 5 different colors ranging from gold, silver and white to purple and blue.
Even though the m3 doesnâ€™t features any â€ścriticalâ€ť changes compared to the m2 it is definitely an upgrade worth to consider. Not only that you are getting solid hardware for less than 100â‚¬, you also get way more than other manufacturers offer at this price range. Actually the m3 is even an alternative for whose dissapointed by the Pro 6 unless you are looking for a good camera.
However, besides all these great news there is also a â€ślittleâ€ť downside. The m3 is YunOS powered and therefore might be unrootable and even more locked than usual non-YunOS Flyme devices.
