I have a 950xl if you have any questions about it. The hardware is superb but the software is still pretty rough around the edges.

Did you buy a case for your phone?

And what do you think about Chinese mobile phones? I'm looking at Meizu... Just don't want to overpay for brand or something.

I bought one but I ended up not using it. I dropped my phone on pavement before the case arrived, and at that point I didn't feel it was necessary to have a case on to protect an already scratched up phone.

Some of them have pretty good specs for the price. My only concern is that I can't read Chinese and getting updates or fixes is going to be very difficult. Support is pretty much out of the window when the phone is in another language and the phone is not for release in your country. Guess you'll have to learn Chinese if you want to get anywhere with those Meizu phones. They do look nice with good specs. The language barrier may put you off if there are problems with the phone and you need to update it.

My Moto X Pure Edition (2015) has treated me quite well so far. No USB-C, so that may rule it out, but I'd give it a look.

I didn't think I would care about the customization but it was fun to build and get it the way I wanted. The fast charge is crazy useful, I can get around 4 hours OST on a heavy day, throw it on the fast charge for 20 minutes and be good to go for the night if I am going out

Well I did consider the Moto X Pure Edition the camera was kinda iffy and no USB C. I ended up going 950 XL and I'm happy with it.
