It hasn’t been even half a year since the Meizu M1 Note became available, but its sequel has already been announced. Predictably, it’s called the Meizu M2 Note. Will it be as successful as its predecessor?
Its prospects are vague, especially since it has very little to set itself apart. In fact, the only noticeable visual cue for identifying the Meizu M2 Note is its larger physical home button (vs the M1 Note‘s circular capacitive home button).
As for performance, the Meizu M2 Note is actually a step backwards. It scores less than its predecessor in benchmarking tools. The only major good thing about this newer phone is its inclusion of several frequency bands, ensuring that it’s compatible with LTE networks across the globe.
