The Meizu U20: Should you buy it?

Many Meizu products have proved their qualities like the M3 Note for example, available on the Phonedroid website. The new smartphone U20 is the new affordable jewel of the manufacturer Meizu. Meizu intends to make a place on the French market of smartphones and proved it at the end of 2016 by unveiling four new models (U10, U20, M3E and M3 Max). Unlike Huawei, Meizu continues to focus on entry / mid-range and value for money to appeal to users. The U20 is part of this category with an affordable price (249 euros for the 32 GB version / 3 GB of RAM) and a technical sheet without false note.

A nice combination between glass and metal.

Meizu has done things well for his U20 and we propose a very nice glass / metal combination. The smartphone is entitled to a metal chassis sandwiched between two plates of glass that gives the smartphone of Meizu an interesting and elegant premium side. In addition, the finishes are of very good quality. It’s easy to see, however, that the U20 looks a lot like Apple’s iPhone 4, but it is normal that Meizu wishes to be inspired by a design that remains very effective.
On the front panel, Meizu stands out from most Android smartphone manufacturers since the U20 wich has only one physical button that acts as a home button when it is pressed, a return key Touch and a fingerprint reader. The latter is very effective and its position is ideal for use with the thumb.
On the right, the volume and on / off buttons are present, while the slot for the two nano SIM cards (or SIM + microSD) is on the left side. Finally, the mini-jack takes position on the bottom edge of the device.

What about its performances?

The Meizu boards a chip Helio P10, 2 or 3 GB of RAM depending on the chosen version and a graphic chip Mali T860. A technical sheet that does not put the U20 in the top lists of Android smartphones and no surprise, the smartphone is not the most suitable for games and applications that require a lot of resources. However, the Meizu U20 does not demerit and comes out with the honors, it will be quite capable of meeting the expectations of casual players.
However, we advise you to consult the list of technical characteristics before you decide to buy it.
