Meizu released three new models last year, they get good grades. Now just pass six months, Meizu released a brand new product: M2 note.
The little dot home button was disappear, it change to innovative mBack button, dormant SmartBar, new color. Be the first smartphone of Meizu this year, these change let Meizu M2 note more meaningful.
Passed six months, Meizu released brand new smartphone M2 note, It is very active in website, especial it add grey color this series. Meizu M2 note is upgraded from M1 note, actually the hardware upgraded was not obvious, screen is 5.5 inch 1080P resolution, configuration used 1.3GHz MTK6753 Octa core CUP+Mali-T720, 2G RAM+16G ROM, Front camera: 5.0MP, Back camera: 13.0MP, it look good. It is Flyme 4.5 OS base on Android 5.1, Upgraded version is more than can be said to be the improved version, exactly how its experience?
This time Meizu M2 note still keep the MX series classical design in package. It look like open a beautiful book, the white box has printed on “ meizu note2” logo.
Actually I have idea, even if the phone box is small, if it can design the box as the book size, it will be better, right?
About accessories, it is as always, Micro USB data cable, charger, warranty card.
Meizu M2 note still keep the Meizu design style, front design except the new mBack button, others are the same as Meizu M1 note, Dimensions control in 150.9x75.2x8.7mm, Compare with Meizu M1 note: 150.7x75.2x8.9mm, it seem to thinner and wider. Meizu M2 note also continuing the consistent standards of Meizu, it is with super narrow bezel design. Of course, it can not compare with MX series of Meizu. But it is narrower than Huawei Honor 4X which I am using. Screen ratio reached 73.49%, Meizu M2 note 3.36mm frame is better than other phones.
The top of screen are traditional things, 5.0MP front camera, headset, distance with the light sensor.
Although Meizu M2 note keep design element of Meizu, but it also make revolutionary change, cancel Meizu classical circular ring home button, Instead of is brand new mBack Physical keys. This mBack button have good performance, the button slightly concave in the panel, and it is a capacitance button with touch function, button edge used CNC corner cut metal ring for decorate. Overall key touch is very comfortable.
MeizuM2 note do not used Aviation aluminum alloy material of Meizu MX series, Instead of, it used RIMOWA. On the whole, it is the same as Meizu M1 note, used the similar texture as iPhone 5C, The best of this texture is not expensive but with strength and mitigated on the weight. So the phone body only have 149g weight.
In addition to the popular colors before, also add grey color which Meizu fans look forward to, Grey color is grind arenaceous feel, a little bit more mature business, and grind arenaceous qualitative have great advantage for scratch-resistant and Anti-Fingerprints.
Miezu gave up the color style which front black back white(panda color), instead of, used black grey color for back cover. But the most of design element is similar as MX3.
At the same time, change the original bright face to Grind arenaceous matte face.
Although touch feel is plastic similar as frame, but the hold feeling will not surprise cause of the difference texture.
Dull polish back cover make the phone have strongly hand feeling, the touch feeling also better than MX3, skid resistance is also quite good, The fingerprint have good resolution.
The top of Meizu M2 note is 3.5mm earphone jack and the noise reduction microphone.
Meizu M1 note do not put power button on the top of the phone before, In hardware, it is not a friendly design, one hand to off the screen is very inconvenience, but M2 note put the power button on the left of the phone, it make more convenience for one hand operation. On the left of the phone, no only have power button, but also have volume button, the feedback is so far so good, press feeling is more tight than M1 note, On the light of the phone do not design any button or port.
On the bottom of the phone from left to right is phone microphone, Micro USB port and phone loud speaker. The main point is Meizu M2 note design the loud speaker on the bottom of the phone, This design is good for put the voice outside, at the same time ensure will have stop or effect the voice when the phone put on the table or hold in hand.
The back of the phone have back camera and flash light, this time Meizu M2 note used steady 13.0MP camera as last generation, It also has the current popular double-color temperature flash light. Camera design difference between with the dream series is the camera do not have metal frame, protection is not good of it, Cost should be considered.
On the buttom of the back cover have some basic information, it have a obvious Meizu Logo, Under the “Meizu” logo have a line of small print “Designde by Meizu Made in China”, do not have other redundant elements, it look simple and natural.
MeizuM2 note still used integration design, it give up the back cover open design which MX series used before, Meizu M2 note only have one sim card slot, but it uses dual sim dual standby dual nano-Sim card design, and the one of sim card slot also can use for micro SD card.
As I said, Meizu M2 note is integration design, the back cover is not removable, Meizu this time increase the capacity of the battery, Battery capacity to 3100 mAh, compare with other meizu phones, it have dramatically improved, as long you do not heavy to use it, A day of life can fully support.

This time Flyme 4.5 have new improve with suspension dynamic effect of the design, increase the trackball of interface setting, It can process action open, close or change.
Recently have some manufacturers also push out the new system, No matter what system IU or interactive design, every manufacturers have their own individuality, Although Flyme 4.5 only change a little, but it is still better than others.
