"we two are made of VCD and a fiddle audio fancier, so talk very congenial", Bai Yongxiang two people to chat impressed.

MP3 Engineer Bai Yongxiang never thought that it was the less than half an hour talk that changed his career in the next ten years.

the name of the chapter "clients" soon realized that the University of Electronic Science and technology graduate student Bai Yongxiang is a rare talent, repeatedly calling to invite Bai Yongxiang to join. Bai Yongxiang decided to try it without an invitation to the Yellow chapter. He moved his family from Shenzhen to Zhuhai in order to take care of his work and family. At the time of

, the MP3 industry was a huge vents, and the consumer market was in the era of MP3 replacing tapes. In 2002, Huang Zhang decided to be independent from the original company and do it alone.

, however, it was a difficult task for Bai Yongxiang, the general engineer of the time, to do a good job of MP3. In

2003, Meizu soon launched the first MP3 MX -- though it is "MX to MX" and "dreamer" in the kerosene heart, it is not enough to form a strong brand effect and open up the market. The next generation of ME products has been improved, but because the wedding dress is OEM ONDA OEM partners.

until the birth of the classic E3 in 2005, Meizu finally made the product brand: before E3, there were only two kinds of MP3 on the market: the foreign products represented by iPod and the domestic MP3. After E3, the MP3 category became three kinds -- iPod, Meizu MP3, domestic MP3.

the successful transformation of the mobile phone business, Huang Zhang assured the company to have the "comrades" Bai Yongxiang, choose "seclusion". In 2011, Mr. Huang faded out of the company's daily management, and Bai Yongxiang welcomed the most important title in his career - the Meizu CEO.

the age of the Meizu of Bai Yongxiang's helm, the change of the Meizu can be said to be the earth shaking. In July 2012, Flyme 1 was released on the MX phone, and at the end of the year the MX 2 with Flyme 2 was launched.

at that time can be bought on the market is the mobile phone is iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, HTC Butterfly, millet 2. Bai Yongxiang knew very well that without Flyme, MX would be nothing in front of these rivals -- "no Flyme, no Meizu"

, Lao Bai served as the title of Meizu CEO until 2013.

"500 interfaces, more than 300 effect diagrams, and more than 1000 controls. "

this is the design of Yang Yan to join the Meizu after the task of the greatest amount of work. The Meizu had only more than 10 software technicians, two interactive designers, and no visual designers.
