Meizu M3E Unboxing, First Impressions, Camera Samples, Benchmarks

At my latest visit at Lazada Philippines, I grabbed the opportunity to do a little hands-on the Meizu M3E which will be just one of the many sale deals to watch out on Lazada Philippines' 5th Birthday Surprise Sale this March 21 to 23.

Here is the the front and back views of Meizu M3E box.


Front: 5 MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture, 5.5 inch IPS Full HD display, home button which also acts as an all-in-one navigation button and fingerprint reader
Back: 13 MP main camera with flash, Meizu branding, non-removable back cover
Internals: Flyme 5.2.1 OS based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 1.8 GHz Mediatek Helio P10 octa-core processor, LTE, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, 3,100 mAh non-removable battery


At ledt, you will gonna see the hybrid dual SIM tray (either 2 nano SIMs or 1 nano SIM and 1 micro SD card) The right side has volume rockers and power/unlock button


The top looks like has the noise-cancelling microphone. The bottom part was jampacked with 3.5 mm. audio jack, pin-hole microphone, OTG-capable micro USB port and speakers.


Like in the usual phones, the box does not have a pair of earphones. It has micro USB to USB port, sim ejector pin, user manual and travel charger which has 3 output configurations of 5V 2A, 9V 2A and 12V 1.5A which might have a hint that this phablet supports quick charging. I saw this set-up in the chargers of Flash Plus 2 and Acer Liquid Zest Plus which both of them have quick charging support. 


It is been a while that I handled a Meizu phone since the good ol days of it on Novo 7 Tech. Now it is currently distributed on the said online store via Hellotronics and also there are some offline stores in some malls. The UI was kinda clean. One bit of a challenge for me is the onate-button navigation and their own unique way of doing screenshot which is pressing both the volume down, volume up and power/unlock button at the same time.


Some of you might ask this as when I checked the engineering mode of this phablet, it does not have the band 28 aka the 700 MHz LTE support. On Antutu, it scored at 46,899 and contains 7 working sensors including gyro.


The camera UI is easy to understand as the labeling said from the auto, manual, panorama and beauty modes. On manual mode, it was complete from shutter speed, EV, exposure and other controls. I was impressed on the image processing speed of this phablet on both cameras especially on if I gonna compare this on the one with the same processor, Flash Plus 2. The output is more than average for me given for it's price


Here are the camera samples which I took in a well-lit environment

Meizu M3E 13 MP main camera sample (auto mode)

Meizu M3E 5 MP front camera sample (normal mode)

Meizu M3E 5 front camera sample (beauty mode set at 25% smoothness, 30% whitening effect)

Based on the form factor, build quality and the multi-tasking that I did, Meizu M3E might be one of your choices on the midrange phablet space. If you are interested to buy this device, it is better to wait for Lazada Philippines 5th Birthday Sale This March 21-23 as from over Php 10,000, you can buy th Meizu M3E for Php 6,995. Good thing that the said deal was not a part of a flash sale so you have longer hours to catch this deal
