"The MEIZU m2 is a compact budget smartphone that supports 4G. Our first impressions"
Following the launch of its budget phablet, the m2 note (review), MEIZU unveiled a the m2, a more affordable and compact version of the smartphone. A few months after it went on sale in China, MEIZU announced the device for the Indian market in exclusive partnership with Snapdeal. The m2 is pretty loaded when it comes to specs, and marks MEIZU's entry in the popular sub-Rs 7,000 smartphone segment. The device has just gone on sale in India, and we have a unit in our labs. We're going to begin with an unboxing and first impressions.
The back panel features a soft touch matte finish. The 13MP primary camera and LED flash are placed on the top, while MEIZU branding is at the bottom. Thanks to the 5-inch screen, the MEIZU m2 is compact enough for single-handed use.
At its price of Rs 6,999, the m2 packs in quite a punch, and appears to be a value-for-money device. It will be up against some stiff competition from the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime (review), YU Yuphoria (review) and Lenovo A6000 Plus (review), but how it fares in terms of day-to-day performance is something we'll be testing over the next few weeks. Check back for our full review.
