Meizu M3 Note Dual-SIM Enabled Android Smartphone with MediaTek Helio P10 CPU

Maybe, I am now an obsess fan of any octa-core powered handsets regardless of platform. Recently, I spotted Meizu M3 Note (M681H) handset treated with the same line of microchip and along with different types of power banks in a Chinese website. This handset is treated with MediaTek's Helio P10, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage.

Compare to my recently added entry, the Ulefone Vienna and Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro, it is less powerful in terms of memory and storage capacity. Or even with another 5.5-inch handset from Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 2 which is equipped with MediaTek's 64-bit X10 line of CPU. And that is because, Helio P10 is the least powerful chip among the descendant of Cortex A53 processors.

However, Meizu M3 Note have a handful of difference from the above mentioned models. Aside from having a much cheaper price (from about $170 to $200), it has its own capabilities which can not be found in other Chinese brands.

For more, see the following table for other available specs of Meizu M3 Note:

In addition, Meizu M3 Note has an mTouch 2.1 enabled fingerprint sensor, power efficient performance (according reviews), MiraVision tech for responsive and vivid video playback, and a battery pack that can last for two days. Its smooth and sleek metallic case also reminds me of the previously announced Asus line of ZenFone.

And maybe, it is really the cheapest 5.5-inch handset that can offer a 64-bit octa-core performance at a power efficient rate.
