Meizu exec says the company has a lot to learn from Apple, also talks about the MX4 Pro
It’s not uncommon for Chinese smartphone makers to copy other manufacturers - especially Apple. Meizu is one of these handset makers, and, if you look at its very first smartphone (the Android-based MX), you can clearly notice an iPhone vibe in its design. However, unlike Xiaomi, which denies copying Apple, Meizu doesn’t seem to be bothered by the comparison with the Cupertino giant.

Talking to Chinese media, one of Meizu’s execs reportedly said that his company has a lot to learn from Apple and its products. When it comes to smartphones, the exec sees Meizu as being positioned somewhere between Xiaomi and Apple (this, however, isn’t reflected in sales, as Xiaomi is selling way more handsets that Meizu).

The Meizu official also talked about the MX4 Pro, the company’s next flagship smartphone. He reconfirmed that the handset would be available starting November, coming with a fingerprint scanner, and - in his opinion - being better than the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 (one of the nicest China-made smartphones we’ve seen lately). The Meizu MX4 Pro will feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, and might run Ubuntu Touch, or YunOS, or both. Guess we’ll find out more about the handset next month.

Why does this leak of the MX4 Pro appear to have no elevated home button (bottom centre) with fingerprint scanner and only the circular light, like the MX4?

Every phone OEM should learn from Apple, but only in two things. 1. They need to stand against carriers putting so much bloat ware crap on their phones. That is one thing I love about Apple they tell Verizon NO! on your sh!t bloatware. 2. Don't let carriers determine when your phone will be released. Look how long the Note 4 is taking to launch on Verizon. Watch the Nexus 6 won't be released till December on Verizon. Apple announces the phone one day and releases two weeks after. I want my Nexus now!!

Oh I forgot 3. Carrier branding remember how bad the note 2 looked with the Verizon logo on the home button? Fugly!!! Come Google please don't let the nexus have that ugly brand on the back.

Put Android on that..boom sales. Also I respect that they aren't denying the copying...the reason I will not touch a Xiaomi/Huawei product...and the limit inventory hunger selling is low.
