Company Reviews Meizu

If we analyze all the statements in the network address of the first Meizu phones, they are reduced approximately to the following: “Chinese copy of the iPhone” or “button like Samsung” Yes, about the design of the manufacturer has not fantasized. Many are outraged by the high price of the Chinese unit. Any roughness in the phone some perceive as a total collapse and failure of the model. These and many other little things repel captious user network. But, despite this, we must admit that the stereotypes of the poor quality of Chinese products remained in the 90’s and smart phones Meizu equate to such world leaders like Sony, Samsung, Apple.
Meizu derision can be (which makes some users and does absolutely true) for excessive imitation of Western companies. This policy is necessary to eradicate all Chinese companies. The lack of backup is only a positive impact on the situation of Asian manufacturers in the world.
