The Meiziu m3s is a decent smartphone. A 5 inch HD display, 13 MP camera, 2 / 3 GB RAM and dual SIM 4G VoLTE support – it comes with some of the important features. However, the battery could have been bigger. The Mediatek processor is decent, but again, compared to the competition like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S, it is lacking. Meizu has launched the phone with a 2 year old OS, which is disappointing – especially when you consider that the future OS upgrade path is almost non-existent.
