Meizu M8 gets English-language video review


The Meizu M8 has been caught on camera plenty of times before, but we can't recall seeing an English-language version until now. One tester at MP4 Nation has managed to get some hands-on time with the unabashed iPhone doppelganger, and calls the ...

Meizu M6 SP gets better for less yuan


When we eyed the Meizu M6 Mini Player earlier this year, it was almost love at first playlist -- it was slick, small, and inexpensive. So you can imagine our joy in informing you that the new Meizu M6 SP will be just like its predecessor, only better...

Meizu Mini Player iPod-alike reviewed


We've never had many complaints about Meizu's Mini Player. Sure, it gloms onto a couple iPod design cues, but Meizu really did their own thing with the player, and they've gotten a lot of love for their efforts. CNET's review of the device isn't a...

Meizu Mini Player review: Meizu Mini Player


Meizu may not have the familiar ring that Apple and Creative have to American ears, but unlike the other two, the Chinese digital audio company dedicates all of its resources to research and development of MP3 players, which probably explains why the...

The nicely designed Meizu Mini Player has a large, bright display and offers a variety of desirable features such as video playback and an FM radio; good sound quality.

The Meizu Mini Player has a variety of quirks that not all users will find enticing; doesn't display album art or support protected digital music.

The Meizu Mini Player is a quality MP3 player with a sleek design, good sound, and useful features, but fans of DRM-hawking music stores should steer clear.

Meizu M6 Mini Player


I guess that the "personal media player", generically known to most as an iPod, probably is second only to the cell phone as the most common digital item. Most technologically aware people I know carry them, a majority of young people whose parents can...

Meizu miniplayer 4GB (PMP)


Who says only Apple and Creative are capable of producing quality digital players? Here's the miniplayer from Meizu with enough quality to take on the big boys.

Review: Meizu M6 mini player aims to give iPod nano a run for its money


Posted by Lab RatIn an already overcrowded flash-based MP3 player market, how do you differentiate yourself from the crowd? Well, China's Meizu is hoping to do it by taking everything customers love about the iPod nano, and then cramming a bunch more...

Better sound than the iPod nano, similar price, similar looks, FM radio, Mic recorder, can play video (with a lot of jumping through hoops)

Doesn't support online music, Syncing with Mac Apps takes some work, the video encoding experience (Mac or PC) leaves much to be desired. If Meizu addresses audio sync problems, this player would be rated a 9

So why would anyone, especially a Mac user, choose the Meizu M6 over an iPod nano? Well, realistically, few likely will. While the term iPod Killer is actually listed in the title for this player on its Amazon listing, odds are Apple is not overly...

Meizu M6 vs. Oracom UB-890


Introduction At this time last year digital audio player manufacturers were mainly focusing on pushing microdrive players onto the market. Sure, flash models existed, but they were mainly of the 512 MB/1 GB variety, with a few 2 GB players available in...

Meizu Mini Player SL 8GB


Meizu has nailed the design and control interface for its latest media player, but what about the listening and viewing quality?

The Mini is not only well designed from a usability point of view, but physically and aesthetically it's impressive too - it bears all the hallmarks of considered design. The matt-finish aluminium back and sharp-edged glass frontage can't quite match...
