“Not Perfect”. That’s not how one sells a smartphone. Having a device slogan like this is plain stupid. It seems so fake-humble that it spontaneously awakens a negative vibe.
Let’s be honest - I’ve actually moved to a rival Xiaomi (Mi Note) daily-driver as well. A buggy Meizu device simply couldn’t do it anymore for me. However I am still curious on how their devices compare in the race of Chinese smartphones and I’m seeking for a PRO 5 to test it out. Of course I will make written and video review + unboxing as and especially if I am able to arrange myself one. And considering the criticism: Meizu devices have always got negative reviews since the MX. Back then there was not too much ground for them - at least in my eyes it was only whiny complaints about some ridiculous things. Inside my own mind I blamed the media for being wary and prejudiced towards Chinese products - I couldn’t figure out any other reason for the negative feedback. This time, however, Meizu started it all on their own.
The fact that Meizu reacted (with a “healthy” delay, of course :laughing:) by removing the slogan has a strong message within. No matter if it was made accidentally, on purpose as a joke or as a nasty trick attempt to show off with modesty - it’s a clear sign of something being wrong. Read: a plenty of "something".
