As earlier featured on TechPinas, Meizu M1 Note represents the very best of what the Beijing-based company has to offer in the entry-level price echelon for the first half of 2015.

Quoting an ealier post, "Combining the youthful design identity and vibrant hues of the Apple iPhone 5C with the massive screen size of Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Meizu M1 Note is Dual SIM Dual Standby LTE-enabled phablet that's made for budget-conscious consumers who want nothing but the very best that their hard-earned money can possibly get."

Priced at only Php 7,990 (for the white variant and Php 8,699 for all other colors), the device is equipped with a 5.5 inch Full HD power-efficient IGZO display (quality should be more or less similar to regular IPS) underneath scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen, a 13 MegaPixel autofocus camera with Dual Tone LED flash, 5 MegaPixel wide-angle front cam for selfies, a Full HD video recorder, and a sizable 3,140 mAh battery pack.

Meizu M1 Note looks great on the outside but it's just as amazing inside. The device runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat based Flyme OS 4.1 with its Octa Core 1.7 GHz MediaTek MT6752 chipset that incorporates eight ARM Cortex A53 CPUs and a Mali-T760 GPU, handles multitasking with 2 GB of RAM, and has 16GB of internal storage.

Mark of TP: "Meizu MX4 is a 2014 TechPinas Badge of Excellence Awardee so it's hard for me not to be excited about this amazing phablet as it dons features reminiscent of best-selling flagship release. But what I'm most thrilled about is Meizu M1 Note's very affordable price tag -- making it more accessible to a lot of consumers, including students and yuppies who aren't quite ready yet to spend more than Php 10,000 on a great smartphone."
