Description

Featuring a 5.5-inch 1080p-resolution screen, the Meizo M3 Note is powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core chipset and accepts two SIM cards or a single SIM card and a microSD card. With 3GB of RAM, 32GB of eMMC 5.1 flash memory, and Meizu's breezy Flyme interface, we can safely assume the high-end M3 Note moves quite swiftly when it comes to everything but the most graphically demanding games. The phone is powered by a considerably large 4100mAh battery. The M3 Note features a 13MP rear camera that sits flush with the body, and a 5MP front cam to handle selfies. There's also a fingerprint sensor, built inside the physical home button which doubles as a back and multitasking key as well.

    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 402 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
