The Meizu Box gets itself a price bump

Remember the Meizu Box? The Meizu Box was Meizu’s attempt at an Android smart box, and it’s a pretty good attempt all things considered. Running Meizu’s own Flyme TV, the device had fairly decent specs and a very nice design, which made it more desirable than similar products.

The Meizu Box went on sale for a cheap and cheerful 299 Yuan ($43), which was a fine price. Now however, Meizu has gone and increased the price of the device to a slightly higher 399 Yuan ($57). According to Meizu, this is due to the cost of materials used in making the Meizu Box.

Specifications wise, the Meizu Box includes 1GB RAM, 8GB memory and a quad-core 64bit 2Ghz chipset. The rear of the box has ports for Ethernet, 1 x USB, dual band wifi and HDMI out. The included control connects via Bluetooth and uses either voice search or physical controls.

Now that the price has been increased, does this deter you from actually purchasing the Meizu Box? It’s an arguably small increase, but the market is very competitive and even small changes can make big differences. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

    “oh dear, jorge!”
    “what, mr jack wong?”
    “the tv box isn’t following the rules we set ourself for 2016!”
    “you mean ridiculously overpriced products?”
    “yes! It’s too damn cheap! How are we supposed to get ourselves a premium image otherwise?!”
    “don’t know… By launching good products and price them well instead of trying to mimic everything others do?”
    “meh… Too tiring… Let’s just raise the price for no damn reason at all!”

    Wouldn’t call a price rise of 33% as small & un significant. Considering actually that for the less money you can buy a decent TV box (16/2 GB) with Amologic S912 SoC it would be better that Meizu retired this product instead as it will be the same thing now.
