Meizu M1 Metal - User Reviews

  • Get the phone unlocked

  • I'm African and I got the phone locked and couldn't open it. I just like the brand. what do I do?

  • Yes working T-Mobile in USA ok. Wifi ok too. China phone changed to English. Still trying to figure out sd card. Apparently it might fit in extra sim card slot??

  • working well on China version.

  • soooo you mean to say Android 5.1.1 is not actually Android? ok

  • "It is confirmed that this is NOT an android phone BUT compatible with all google services and almost all apps (maybe some not, but very less)" YunOS in Flyme with some AliPay things added to it. It's literally a customised version of Android

  • "850 MHz" hence why I had to go back to my note 2 and swap with mum. Too bad as the m1 was nearly perfect and the m2 is a slow mess

  • If you can remember your gmail address when creating your flyme account, you can unlock your device. First, you need another m1 metal phone of your friends.Your flyme account appear on your locked phone display. Sign in flyme account name on your friend's m1 metal phone and press forgot password.And type gmail address to get verification code.Open your gmail and get code meizu sent, type it.And change your password.That's all. You can do this process via web browser using another smartphone.

  • The battery life on this device is tremendous I get six hours out of this phone easily

  • The lack of 850Mhz makes the phone useless on 3G Telstra drops to edge. Switching to 4G to remedy the problem exibits another problem relating to not being able to receive phone calls

  • Hi guys, im thinking of buying this phone. is this phone really good. im concerned with its battery life even though it has 3140mah. thanx in advance

  • debloater.....you can get all the instructions on how to do it, google pls.

  • there you have it!

  • totally agree with you on that one, I keep wondering if they will make m2 metal lol

  • Model is MEIZU m1 metal .please tell me how should i do.

  • I need you help .My ph is now lock. I forgot my password.

  • absolutely, waiting for m2 metal if they will make 1 tho, this model dominates other Meizu LOL, i wish they have stores in Philippines and other countries since they have high demand online

  • why meizu doesn't meet the international market? i love every phone that meizu make! and this is the best meizu in my opinion! i wish see this phone in my country!!!

  • sorry but mine lasts more than 6hrs of using WiFi or Data, 5 to 6hrs of gaming and more than 16hrs of stand by

  • Hi! Please tell me how did you debloat your phone, what programs did you use?

  • Don't buy this phone! Battery life is terrible, only 6 hours on standby! On my device flashlight isn't working although I bought new device!

  • In my case, I do not like this brand. The fingerprint is very slow and most of the times it does not work. I dropped it once and the first time I dropped it, the lock button was pushed inside and I could not lock my phone. The end of the screen broke too even when I had a hard phone cover on. I also am not able to download the play store so I have to stick with the phone's 'app store'. I hardly can find the basic apps I want. Youtube has also abruptly stop working and some apps disappear from time to time. I am also not able to send any videos on whatsapp. Anyways, this is mine condition of my phone, if you think otherwise, you are free to buy it.

  • Most update apps will not run on YunOS. No possibility to use update Facebook app and Messenger app. Mobile internet connection keeps changing from 3G to 2G. Poor call quality. I live in Yangon, Myanmar.

  • 3 of my friends got this phone and all of them are on Android (Lollipop), it does not mean that you have the same brand and model you will get the same OS because we all know, Chinese manufacturers can copy anything

  • YunOS from Alibaba

  • not true. If you get from reputed brand such Huawei, you will get latest Android whenever it is made available pretty fast. Faster than Xperia's most of the time.

  • I got this phone for almost 3 weeks and I got this from china directly. It is confirmed that this is NOT an android phone BUT compatible with all google services and almost all apps (maybe some not, but very less). The OS named YunOS and developed from Linus which used by Android as well. But I am using it as an android phone and found no difference at all. The pros are.1. screen looks so nice for this price range. 2. overall the touch feel of the device is superb. 3. smooth running overall from the premium chipset from Mediatek. Cons are. 1. This phone cannot be rooted (coz of Yun OS). So u have to use some 3rd party software to debloat some unwanted bloatwares from this phone. 2. Battery life so-so but acceptable for me. 3. 2 cards 2 standby but if u need to use micro sd card for expand space, u can only use 1 sim card. This phone is primary for China market only so most country will not get this. But I like this phone very much. Cheap price for premium quality.

  • The reason why i'm asking is that, if it is not an international version/Indian version, most of them have a problem regarding the software, google service, play store, contact sync, apps can't install, etc... when i read their comments.

  • No international version of this device, but it has English, German, French, Portugese, Spanish locales. And can be almost fully localized with Morelocale2. Use it about two weeks and I really like it.

  • Is there any International Version/Global Version?

  • how?plz tell clearly

  • Is there Turkish Language on this phone???

  • whatsapp works good on this phone?

  • You have a chinese version or a global/international version?

  • China version had many error in my country .Myanmar

  • Fingerprint is not bad ,but this function is not look like iphone because this sensor is not good as look like iphone.

  • MEIZU M1 is not bad ,but This phone needed many functions , FB image downloader as menu key and original video call function and Data usage setting etc.

  • Amazing phone!I like it so much because of fingerprint. Security is like iphone.

  • Today I bougt this phone. I was talking in whatsapp. It closed suddenly. I opened it. Again closed.open again. N again closed.and right now cant open it. What to do? I am in china.

  • Not b in the close box until u buy n try it.. i have got 6 phones, xaiomi n meizu.. tell the difference then..

  • Actually, iPhone copies others.. open eyes wide n look around the world.. copycat is iPhone covered by global mkt achievement..

  • Amazing phone like iphone experience with cheap price.

  • Have you used the redmi note 2 ? If so would u recommend it over the Meizu metal? Or which is better between the tow

  • I used m1 metal 16G and xiaomi redmi note 3 last momth.Now I am uding m1 metal 32G version.It is awesome phone and it us better than Xiaomi note 2 and note 3.Both Xiaomi redmi note 3 and Meizu m1 metal use same chip but the latter´ battery performance is far better than Xiaomi redmi note3 which was batter 4000mAh...

  • I would like one, but Chinese brands are not putting bandages for my country, Dominican Republic. Specifically company Claro Dominicana using AWS Band 4G B4 (1700-2100 MHz). Build couple.

  • No tax how is that possible?

  • Do u know where I can get the global version and which would you recommend Redmi a note 2 or Meizu metal?

  • Anybody is copying iPhone design, they are copying HTC design, because the iPhone is a full copy of HTC

  • Does M1 Metal have LED indicator

  • In Cambodia it is US$235

  • where i can find this phone in Bahrain? plz reply me....

  • is it available in the phil?thanks

  • Best phone uner this price range...i am using the Chinese version, u can use google apps, ui is awesome. battery life super cool. U wil get updates regular basis.

  • Where i live Meizu M1 Note already got the 5.1.1 Lollipop update.

  • The only thing iphone has it's own is the iOS. Hardware is made by others and the design is copied htc and others.

  • it is a step up fr M1 note and M2 note. But it's camera is a step down.

  • I like design but there is no accessories in our country(myanmar). Offical is just m2 note and Mx4 or pro something. I think u need to introduce in myanmar all of meizu device because there is no choice for phone. Meizu is not bad to choose, it worth and it can compare with xioami. There is just one choice for middle brand and it is xioami......Thank u....

  • Can i use google map or youtube on this Chinese model meizu metal? thanks!

  • did you know that iphone copy that from htc... duh???

  • do you compare one plus with this? are you kidding me? this phone just $220 compare more:

  • Oneplus will be a better option

  • I don't understand why every brand copy the design of iPhone?

  • For those who have this phone, how is the britness of the sreen ?

  • Does it comes with gorilla glass?

  • in the day time,it`s pretty good. but in the night,the camera can`t catch enought light,photos alwats look dark.

  • Is it avail in th ph

  • anybody can say me about it's camera quality's

  • does anyone know if the sound quality is similar to meizu mx5?

  • Yes,it work in uk ,it support 4G LTE well on mobile provider 3&EE.

  • Do u know all Chinese phones very late to get android update,if you want fast android update go to xperia z-series

  • does anyone know if this will work in the uk?

  • I see the review on youtube, it's same with m2 note, just install goohle installer so playstore and play service will instaled, oke thx for your answer dude. For GSMarena please review this phone, thanks

  • Please review the Meizu Metal for us GSMArena! I want to see if Meizu have improved the audio (specially for the headphone output) since the M2 Note.

  • Does Chinese Version have Google playstore and services?

  • it does have google play services and play store too.

  • So this is Android or not ? Coz i want to buy this phone but i won't get risks, i',m just want to know the truth, Yun Os not have a playstore, thats a problem. This phone spec is same with xiaomi redmi note 2, just have a fingerprint, but the OS still question mark.

  • How can u say that its better then android? in fact its based on android.

  • good phone . with great os better than android .

  • Yeah, it's kinda suck.. From what I see Meizu have slighty better chance for a base android update, while Xiaomi has better chance for a 3rd party rom as they usualy release the kernel source code (even it's a year later) and an unlocked bootloader

  • this phone is not running ANDROID OS but YUN OS YUN OS is form chinese copier

  • Your M1 Note it's not updated to Flyme os 4.5 via OTA update? And it's your phone updated via OTA to any newer version of Flyme os?

  • Actually all the meizu phone have the ability to be updated to lollipop at flyme 4.5, of course they still have to be relatively new like from this year or two. It just may be the specific software version you have. There is I for international, a for China, and so on. If your unable to upgrade just go Google on how to update it and you'll find the solution by manually flashing the update that should be available to you through their upgrade app.

  • Huawei honor 5x

  • I have Meizu note 1 and it's still based on kitkat 4.4 and handset is not even a 1 year old. If you buy Meizu forget about updates customer support is poor, boot loader is locked, so I'll switch to Xiaomi, but wait! Xiaomi Mi 4 (last year Xiaomi flagship) is still on android 4.4. Chinese phones ...

  • Which is the best? Meizu Metai or Huawei 5X or Lenovo P1 or Coolpad Note 3?

  • Meizu Mx5 0.75 Sar...

  • Nothing new with Meizu... I guezz

  • but still, I won't say it's an android, just like I don't like calling Fire OS an android

  • Yun OS is an illegal Android and Linux fork, and google really hate it. In case you guys missed it, try to google : acer aliyun os

  • it's not a version of android, but it's still pretty much android since it's based on it.

  • No, it's not. Well, actually YunOS is kind of incompatible forked android versions, but Alibaba itself say that YunOS is not a version of android. While Flyme is just UI / skin, like touchwiz/sense/etc

  • yunos is based on android 5.1, it's still very much android.

  • yun os and flyme os is android

  • Adreno 330 is superb.. but the choise is yours

  • Nice specs and quite cheap price, but the front looks a bit like the older gen iPhone....Still, i think its worth the price.

  • PLATFORM : OS Android OS, v5.1 (Lollipop) I think this is a big mistake.. Can I have a source for this claim ? Even on Meizu's site they clearly wrote powered by YunOS.. THIS IS NOT AN ANDROID PHONE !

  • Any heating issue reported?

  • got it from china. Superb phone!! Stunning design. Camera is good. Smooth.

  • meizu metal or redmi note 2?

  • redmi note 2 or meizu metal?

  • How

  • Really nice phone. ............!!!!!!

  • Still no match for Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime

  • But the helio x10 chipset is newer than the snapdragon 801

  • Galaxy s5

  • Fingerorint?

  • Is this phone available in china as yet?

  • Too bad it uses a MediaTek chipset. It'll locked down and closed. Most likely it'll never see any updates what so ever. It'll soon be outdated due to this.

  • Which should I get Samsung Galaxy s5 or the meizu metal and which is better for gaming

  • Yes

  • My friends, Does it support USB OTG? is it dual SIM full active? both SIMs are functional at the same time? I mean, if I am on a call with one sim, can I receive a call on the other sim?

  • Is this real dual sim, same as MX5?

  • HOLY SH*T!!!!! BEST PHONE EVER!!!!! This phone currently beats all budget phone competitors, such as the Lenovo K3 Note, Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, and the Meizu M2 Note.

  • Wtf are u talking about ... Meizu don't have big Sar Values , always under 0,5

  • What about its SAR value? Meizu phones are known to have huge SAR values.

  • Nice phone!!! With cheap price & high spec!!!

  • Xiaomi redmi note 2 killer....... WAITING FOR THIS...... #AWESOME

  • damn you're wright

  • meizu metal come in malaysia or singapore target market business only?why meizu not in taiwan?

  • Excellent!!! Meizu do a great job with bringing MX features to M Line! A metal body, Fingerprint sensor and right-side controls and Helio X10 are all welcome!!! i really like this phone!

  • The front looks like the Samsung S6, the back a HTC M9 and the OS iOS 9. Wow.

  • An awesome looking phone with awesome specs for even better awesome price. Un fukingwesome believable :-)

  • looks great

  • Design back to iPhone 3G...

  • I really like this one and it's price. Cool meizu

  • this is super looking is very nice i love this phone how much price this one ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • If they release it to the USA it will be the Nexus 5X killer

  • This phone looks great.

  • IGZO is a screen technology from sharp.
