Meizu M3 Max has similar specs and a bigger screen than m3 note. This is one of the biggest smartphnes made by Meizu so far with a 6 inch display at 1080p resolution.

The phone comes in box with a fast 24W charger plug and a microUSB cable. Sadly the box doesn’t contain headphones, seems to be a Chinese trend lately.

On the other hand, contrast, white balance and colors are quite accurate. The camera can record videos up to  1080p resolution at 30fps.
