Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has decided to enter the Indian market with the highly talked about M1 Note. The handset will exclusively be available on Amazon. Unlike numerous other smartphone brands that prefer opting for a flash sale model, Meizu has decided to stick to the standard open sale model.

For now it is hard to hear any whispering about the price. Although the handset seems to have packed in some powerful features, it won’t go too hard on your pocket as the handset will be competing with the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei, brands that have been known to offer top-notch handsets at an unimaginably low price. However, before we put forth a few more judging factors, let’s have a first look at the phone straight out of the box and look at the specifications

  • 5.5-inch display

  • Android version 4.4.4 (KitKat)

  • 1.7 GHz Octa-Core processor

  • 2 GB RAM

  • 13 MP Primary Camera

  • 5 MP Secondary Camera

  • 16/32 GB Internal Storage

  • 3140 mAh battery

With all that goodness packed in, no wonder the Meizu M1 Note indeed turns out to be a powerful handset. However, Android Lollipop could have made things much better, but that’s not a problem. You can definitely hope for the latest updated coming your way pretty soon.

What’s most impressive is a 3140 mAh battery that can offer a talk time of up to 40 hours, 12 hours of 4G web surfing, 15 hours of video-playing and 60 hours of high-quality music playing. Not many handsets feature a battery that’s well beyond 3000 mAh. A 1.7 GHz octa-core processor will make things much faster. And of course, adding up to the overall glamour is a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper. So, if you are a frequent selfie-taker, you might want to add up the M1 Note to your list.

The phone is available in a 16GB and a 32GB variant. Other standard features include a gyroscope, digital compass, gravity sensor, ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor. Some of these may fall handy. For now the handset is available in 5 colours – Blue, White, Pink, Green and Yellow. So, if you are someone who is bored using the same old standard black or white phones, the vibrant colours will surely come as a fresh change and delight your visual senses.

The Meizu M1 Note is closely being compared with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G. But, is the comparison justified? Let’s find out.
