“To survive in the fierce competition of Chinese mobile market, the phone makers in China are trying to imitate everything from Apple,” Herman Lai reports for M.I.C. Gadget.

“We have attended Meizu MX2 launch party in Beijing, which was considered to be another equivalent to Apple’s keynote event,” Lai reports. “Previously, we remembered CNN has mentioned that Meizu was formerly the coveted smartphone brand in China, but that mantle has passed on to Xiaomi which — like Apple — masterfully markets its technology like a lifestyle.”

Lai reports, “But now we believe Meizu has [struck] back, which proved they can host a better Apple keynote knockoff in China. After having a preview video of Meizu MX2, we’ve made another video to take you through the magnificent Meizu MX2 launch event inside Beijing WaterCube.”
