Iâ€™m really impressed with Meizuâ€™s latest Flyme OS upgrades. I didnâ€™t know that they were there, but then I have a lot of my notifications turned off. After discovering there was one, I went from my existing 4.5 (I had already upgraded once since I bought the phone) to 5.1, and everything worked fine. There was another sub-version upgrade the same night. US software vendors could learn a lot from this Chinese company.
It wasnâ€™t perfect (I made some notes on my Tumblr) but it was a darn sight better than some of the upgrades Iâ€™ve had on Mac and Windows. I accept there is less to go wrong with cellphones, but Iâ€™ve heard many a complaint from IOS users about their upgrades. The phone feels faster, and after a bit of exploring through the menus, Iâ€™ve turned off resource-hogging notifications and data-sucking settings. I stand by my earlier review of my Meizu M2 Noteâ€”if they keep up this level of reliability, and can remain Google-free, Iâ€™d happily buy from them again.
