On April 25 Meizu unveiled the Meizu M3 with a price tag of just $90. The M Series of Meizu targets the young audience and since its launch it has given us six devices with total sales of more than 20 million units.
The M3 is expected to dominate the sub-$100 market and we already have a disassembling of the device. Let’s see:
The process is quite straightforward and follows the basics that Apple brought to the industry with iPhone 3G and is still being used by Apple and many other manufacturers that go with the unibody design with non-removable battery.
So, first move is to remove the only two screws that are at the bottom of the device. After that, use a suction cup to hold the screen and separate the plastic back from the rest of the body. There you have it. All of the parts are attached behind the display.
What is worth mentioning, is that there are plastic covers over the motherboard, probably to protect the motherboard in case the device falls off your hands and hits the ground facing backwards, as the polycarbonate back is very thin and soft.
The rest of the layout is pretty basic, making the handset easy to repair. The battery, as you can see, has a capacity of 2,840mAh and according to Meizu, gives the device a two-day usage rank, placing second among the Meizu devices after the Meizu M3 Note.
A very well built device in general, considering the fact that it costs under $100. Bellow you can see the rest of the process.
