Rs 10300.  It has a  5.5″ display that is seamlessly suitable for one-handed process, but the phone still feels countless in hand and you can simply do the significant stuff with one hand.

We predict many consumers were always looking forward to the Meizu Note lineup. The latest Meizu m3 note sizes upon that with a faster processor, a superior battery and a better, all-metal design.


Meizu M3 Note comes with an aluminum frame, and it looks same from most smartphones. The phone has been launched in three color shades are white, silver and gold and the one we got was dressed in silver.  There is nothing about the design that stands out, we were still cheerful with the look and feel of the M3 Note. We found it to be common, but stylish though. With innovative technologies being used to create the body of this smartphone, it is nothing but a amazing piece of work. The design language is certainly familiar to what we saw on the predecessor, but the quality has been drastically improved.Meizu M3 Note side buttons
