Meizu Blue Charm Metal as well as HTC One A9 features metal body and comes in various colors. Both have 16GB and 32GB storage options and MicroSD card slot, but there are some differences that we would talk about.
HTC One A9 vs Meizu Blue Charm Metal
Meizu Blue Charm Metal
Meizu Blue Charm Metal comes with a 5.5 inches 1080 pixels display, 2GB RAM, 16GB / 32GB ROM plus MicroSD card slot, 13 MP rear and 5 MP front camera, Octa-core 2.0 GHz Mediatek Helio X10 CPU, Flyme 5.1 OS based on Android Lollipop, Finger Print Sensor, 3140 mAh battery etc..
HTC One A9
HTC One A9 features 5-inch Full HD display (1080p), 2GB RAM with 16GB ROM or 3GB RAM with 32GB ROM and MicroSD card slot, 13-megapixel rear and 4-megapixel front camera, octa-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 617 SoC, Finger Print Sensor, 2150 mAh battery, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, etc..
HTC One A9 : 32GB with 2GB RAM : $400, price for 16GB ROM with 2GB RAM is unknown at this time.
Meizu Blue Charm Metal : 16GB : $174, 32GB: $205 (2GB RAM in both)
Mediatek Helio X10 is a great chip that is already found in HTC’s premium smartphones, like HTC One M9+ and HTC One M9+ Supreme Camera Edition. In terms of performance benchmarking, Helio X10 scores much better than Snapdragon 617. Meizu Blue Charm Metal also features a powerful battery compared (3140 mAh) to HTC One A9 (2150 mAh). So 1GB additional RAM and Android 6.0 Marshmallow os don’t justify additional $195 for 32GB HTC One A9. If we talk about 16GB Variant, amount of RAM is the same for both the models.
However, unavailability of Meizu devices in international market could stop you from buying, and importing from internal stores will increase the cost for sure.
