Forums Added for the US Galaxy Note II Variants, Droid RAZR HD, and Meizu MX

We recently gave three devices a home in our forum. Not too long ago, we created a forum for the international Galaxy Note II. Now, it's time for the US variants. Coming in as the successor to the wildly popular first generation Note, the Note II builds on its predecessor by increasing the screen size and processor speed, while decreasing device thickness slightly to 9.4 mm.

Meizu MX Quad-Core Review

The story of the Meizu MX is an interesting one. Meizu Technology is a Chinese electronics manufacturer, producing a range of products from music players to, now, smartphones. There currently is no official American or European release date for the Meizu MX. Rather, it has been released only in Hong Kong and China. However, we got our hands on one and we took it for a test drive. There are two variants, the dual-core and the quad-core. The dual-core was...

Stock Android 4.0 Beta (V1037) for the Meizu MX and M9

Not too many people around these parts are familiar with the name Meizu. Despite making highly popular flagship devices for the China and Hong Kong markets, they haven't stirred up too much commotion in other parts of the world. This is unfortunate, however, as their flagship MX and upcoming quad-core MX pack some seriously high end hardware. Normally their devices don a heavily skinned version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread dubbed "Flyme OS." Luckily for power users, however, this ICS beta...
