Initial findings1. The aesthetics and craftsmanship of this handset is definitely on point. It's on par with the level of most over PHP 15K devices we tested in the past. It is that impressive!
2. The chipset it used is just fine at Helio P10 should be just fine. It's paired with Mali T860 graphics that can handle most demanding graphics well. There's also 3 GB of RAM for good multitasking experience.
3. We're excited on what its 13 MP f/2.2 Sony IMX258 sensor w/ PDAF and dual tone LED flash can do. Why? Meizu was able to incorporate their usual good camera software. It also has a full manual camera mode with up to 20 seconds shutter speed. The 5 MP f/2.0 front camera doesn't even have a screen flash though.
4. FymeOS 5.2.1 is intuitive and very clean. There's no Playstore and Google apps out of the box, but it'll be available once the Google services is installed via Meizu's own App Store.
5. You'll need to turn the screen on first before unlocking the device with your finger, OTG works.
