Now on 22.214.171.124A.
Pretty good, apart from the auto-brightness which is poor.
The Dude, 25 Nov 2021Can confirm 8.1.5A GPS does work but fast battery drain and on screen fingerprint scan is slow... more126.96.36.199A now out, hopefully with improves to the fingerprint reader.
Don't hold much hope of a stable version of Flyme 9 though, Meizu aren't bringing many phones out now.
Me, 08 Sep 2021GPS seems OK on latest, stable version 8.1.5A.
Can confirm 8.1.5A GPS does work but fast battery drain and on screen fingerprint scan is slow and doesn't always work.
Latest beta for Flyme 9, fingerprint scan is quick and works all the time but GPS doesn't work and mBack doesn't work all the time either.
Given that the Flyme 7 versions also have problems with the on screen fingerprint scan there is currently no good official firmware for this phone.
Hopefully there will be a final stable version of Flyme 9 that is OK but it's taking forever.

Why they made it harder for Russians I don't know but get the global (G) version rather than the Russian (RU) version, unless you're Russian and you can't speak other languages.

Flyme 9 is available but based it's on Android 10 rather than Android 11.
I'm not sure if I'd flash it though as you will need to flash Gapps to get Google Play Services and your phone will probably become "uncertified" and there may be problems with security and updating app.
I wish Meizu would produce global versions.

It's pretty simple to switch from global M software to Chinese A though, you just download it to your phone then start your phone while holding the up or down volume button (can't remember which, you'll have to look it up).
If you have the Russian RU firmware on your phone then you can't do it that way though, you have to root your phone and install TWRP and it's rather complicated.
I had this Phone for 2 years no problema at all. The Last security update îs from march 2019 global version android 8, can someone tell me how to update to chinese version and if IT îs The right think

Ahmed, 02 Oct 2020Glass or metal? Meizu 16/ 16X is metal unibody phone.
Glass or metal?
Meizu offers better spec and features, as well sleak design just battery is small capacity for all models
Nick, 18 Jan 2019You're correct in saying a phone with a 6 inch screen with no bezels is the same size as a 5.5... moreYes of course but dont forget they put 10nm power efficient Snapdragon 710 inside. So 3100 mAh is not small at 7.5 mm thickness n compact body. It also not big coz it's hard to put large battery on 16x size. Do u remember why Galaxy Note 7 explode? ;)
Gusta, 02 Oct 2018Pay attention that dimmension of the phone. Not the screen size because the aspect ratio tell ... moreYou're correct in saying a phone with a 6 inch screen with no bezels is the same size as a 5.5 inch phone with bezels but a 6 inch screen needs more power to run than a 5.5 inch one.
