Over the summer MEIZU announced its latest Android powered phablet, the MEIZU M2 Note with 4G LTE, which doesn’t necessarily break your piggy bank, if you’re in search of such a large handheld this autumn. The MEIZU M2 Note 4G costs a little under £150 (about 199 Euro) and the online retailer Gearbest offers 29% extra discount this month, which pretty much translates into ‘free shipping’ from Asia.
For such a low-cost phablet, the MEIZU M2 Note packs interesting hardware. It features a 5.5-inch IPS display (Full HD screen resolution), it comes packed with MediaTek’s MT6753 chipset, which holds an octa-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.3GHz ARM-Cortex A53 cores (Snapdragon 810 equivalent), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, Mali-T720 GPU, 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP main camera on the back, packs 4G LTE, Bleutooth 4.0 connectivity and it is a dual SIM dual standby device with nano SIM slots (both support LTE networks, but only one at a time allows 4G connectivity). The first nano SIM slot can act as a microSD card slot as well, offering up to 128GB extra storage if needed.
MEIZU M2 Note 4G runs on Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system and it is equipped with a 3,100 mAh battery to last you a day of use.
