Why this vs Oneplus 6 or Xiaomi Mi8?

It is kind of pricey considering no NFC, lack of 700 Mhz LTE bands and tiny battery.

Careful with Meizu. Not sure about this particular model, but they were fighting with Google for a while and are still not Google Mobile Services (GMS) certified across the board. Meaning that even if you manage to sideload Google services on it, Google may still block you. Once you read up on it, you'll realize the trouble is not worth the few bucks that's you'll "save", especially since there are other compelling devices out there which are similarly priced and have no such problem.

Well, there may be some hope .. as reported here, there is a LineageOS build floating for it which mitigates the software issues I talked about.

Another think to take into account buying this, in addition to small battery and no NFC, is that they are probably one of the worst company for product updates. They have a tiny team on international roms, so you'll be stuck on android 8 probably forever. Their skin is also fairly restrictive, like for many chinese OEM'S.

If these elements don't bother you, this phone is rock solid for the price !
