A popular question that we get asked here at Android Authority is, where is the best place to buy a Chinese OEM phone? Maybe you want an Oppo handset or something from Xiaomi, Meizu or even THL, but where to get it?
With part of the world celebrating holidays, news has been slow on the Android front, but we did our best to make it up with reviews, op-eds, and other long-form pieces. It wasn’t all quiet though – Asus teased a couple of very interesting phones coming at CES, more alleged specs of HTC’s next flagship leaked, OnePlus got a reprieve in its patent conflict with Micromax, and China’s Meizu launched its own Xiaomi competitor.
Welcome to Android Authority this week.
The new 5.5-inch Meizu M1 Note costs just CN¥1,000 ($160), but offers compelling hardware that competes with low-cost Huawei and Xiaomi smartphones.
This year, Xiaomi has proven that its possible to turn a profit from low-cost smartphones. Other OEMs look set to follow suite with their own e-commerce only products.
We take a quick look at the unboxing, and give you our first impressions about the Meizu MX4 Pro!
Things are winding down for the end of the year in the technology world, but we still had some hot topics to discuss this week. HTC finally made its new mid-ranger Desire 620 official, another episode of the OnePlus/Cyanogen saga went down, we learned that the Nexus 5 could be close to retirement, Google updated a ton of its apps and released Lollipop for Android Wear devices, and we heard some interesting rumors about Samsung’s upcoming A7 and E7 smartphones.

Meizu and Canonical have announced a strategic partnership that could see Ubuntu Touch powered smartphones arrive in China and Europe by early 2015.
The newly announced $410 Meizu MX4 Pro has set a new high bar for bang per buck, with a QHD display, Exynos SoC, fingerprint scanner, and a bag full of marketing nonsense.
The Meizu MX4 has now been officially announced, offering up a solid looking handset with an octa-core CPU for just $300.
