I have owned the Meizu 15 for over a month now. The screen is only 5.46 inches in diagonal, but it has the smallest side bezels of any phone I know of, so the width of the screen is 67.99 mm; as large as the width of the screen on the Oppo Find X which has a 6.4 inch diagonal screen. It only has a 79.8 screen-to-body ratio as the top and bottom bezels are not small. However, it's the width of the display which I find most useful, to dial a number or type in a web address (espesially since I have not yet been able to get auto rotate to work). I considered the Samsung Galaxy S9, which is easy to hold with a 68.7 mm width. But the Samsung Galaxy S9 is thicker at 8.5 mm and heavier, and although the Samsung Galaxy has a 83.6% screen-to-body ratio, the width of the Samsung S9 screen is only 64.45 mm. The price of the Samsung Galaxy S9 affected my final decision on which phone to buy; and right now I would prefer the Meizu 15 if the cost of the phones were equivalent.

The stereo speakers have a nice sound output during calls. The 3000 mAh battery is sufficient and charges very quickly. It comes with no bloatware at all except for the weather app, which I don't use and thus far have been unable to uninstall.

For me, low weight and body size are important in a phone as I carry it around. Good speakers are important as I listen when I am in a phone call. The Meizu 15 does the things I want it to do well. I don't need a big screen or a powerful chipset. From the reviews that I have read since I bought the phone it sounds like the camera's are very nice, and that's good to know and I do expect to be using the camera in the future.

    So In summary I have the phone and I like it a lot,  My only two question to the community are 1)  does anybody knnows how to un-install the weather app.  and also 2) the image on the screen does NOT auto rotate.  In settings i have auto rotate turned on....but it doesn't work, weird.  Has anybody else who owns the phone had a problem with auto rotate of the screen display?  Thanks.

Maybe it's a bad thing for the guy who just bought meizu 15

I am excited about the upcoming Meizu 16.  If it meets my expectations (and I expect that it will) I am going to order it the first day the white color version is listed for sale on Aliexpress.  When I bought the Meizu 15 only the black color was available, so I bought that, and about four weeks later it became available in the white color.  I never had a white phone before so that's my excuse to upgrade right away.  Screen will be a bit bigger, CPU a bit stronger, usable display a bit better percentage; it all seems good.  Looking forward to it.

Oh, I forgot to report the following.  Today auto rotate is working.  I know yesterday I was fiddling with it when I posted but I couldn't get it to it's working fine.  I still would like to know how to remove the weather app, because I don't use it and I have heard that it uses up battey, however my auto rotate problem has been solved.  Thanks.

Does anyone know what material is on the back of Meizu 15 White, because its definitelly not metal like other 3 color versions.
User625982668 Member 4/7/2018 16:13
I think but am not sure, that the white color has the same metal body as the other colors (or other color, I have only seen the black or white model on sale; I have never seen the blue model on sale).

Great news

It turns out I did do it.  I have ordered the Meizu 16th, Chinese version. I asked the seller not to install multi language or Google Play but to please send me the phone as they recieved it.  I use English as my phone language and I think I can instal Google Play myself without rooting the phone.  But I don't know that for sure as I have never done it before.  My hope is that the OS will then acept OTA upgrades; but again, I do not know if that will be the case.  If anybody knows about this please let me know.  It was available yesterday in the white color; so it will replace my black color Meizu 15.
