Xiaomi and Meizu go head to head in price war


Meizu have declared a price was against Xiaomi by lowering prices of their current phones! Xiaomi have retaliated with their own price drop! Who will win?

Late last week Meizu announced a huge price cut on all current Meizu MX2 models! The price cut brought the base model 16GB MX2 down from 2299 Yuan to 1999 Yuan, the 32GB from 2799 Yuan to 2399 Yuan and the flagship 64GB to 3299 Yuan. Meizu fans who still have the original M8 can also redeem an additional discount of 400 Yuan bringing MX2 prices down to the level of the Xiaomi M2S!

Of course Xiaomi, with the successful launch of the Red Rice just weeks behind them, weren’t going to sit back and let Meizu steal this weeks headlines and have retaliated by reducing prices of almost every Xiaomi handset available!

The Xiaomi range now starts at just 799 Yuan for the newly launched 1.5Ghz Red Rice with the flagship 32GB Xiaomi M2S which boasts a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and Snapdragon 600 processor for only 2009 Yuan!

    Xiaomi for the win!

  • Jason

    The consumers don’t mind about lower prices, the more the better. Let the price war continue

  • DN

    I want Xiaomi in Portuguese.

  • Job_CF

    This is bound to to pressure on other manufacturers such as JiaY and Zopo

    • Konged

      This should cause a price drop in the MTK based manufacturer’s upper end as the only thing is the 5 inch + screen, 1920 display. With xiaomi now putting a 6589t device for 800 yuan that’s another downward price pressure. Good news for consumers

  • liljohn

    the customers win!!!

    • Rolf Janssen

      Totally haha, noone gets as much profit as the customers

  • I think now the m1s is a better choice than the mtk phones unless you need a big screen.
    And it is the last with sd card support, if I’m not mistaken.
