The Meizu m1 is the latest addition to the company’s lineup of aggressively priced yet decently equipped smartphones.
This iPhone 5c look-alike (whose design is similar to the m1 Note) is Meizu’s attempt to pit against its rival Xiaomi’s Redmi 2. The Meizu m1 has a slightly larger screen at 5 inches diagonal. It also sports a quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM and advanced Mali graphics.
