@joriq It has more languages and google apps out of the box.
Most Chinese apps are still on the phone, some got removed. But the Chinese content is only hidden. (Not removed)
When you start any FLymeOS system app it connects to the Internet and loads Chinese content (what you don’t see as it’s hidden).
I wrote a topic about this. It’s just two lines in the build.prop that hides the content, but not removes or disables it.
And if you wonder why it’s like this? Why is there no global firmware though Meizu went global in 2014, in France?
I will quote the Head of FLymeOS the man in charge of it: “Meizu will try to give more importance to the global firmware, in the future.” (Doesn’t even say they have a plan, it’s a lose maybe, we will make it better, maybe…)
