& Features – Meizu E2
The E2 doesn’t really experience a major change in its design at the front, featuring the same mBack button with a display surrounded by white bezels. However, the design takes a complete change at the rear where the E2 sports a different looking camera and LED flash. Perhaps, the most prominent change is the LED flash which comes as a strip of light with four LEDs sitting on the antenna line change in the Meizu E2 is in the LED flash. This design is obviously pioneered by Meizu and we give then thumbs up for that. The presence of fused antenna band design should tell you that the E2 is an all-metal body phone.
