No one here has used the ubuntu version....... ? Actually i.m very eagered to use the new OS but. Need to know the pro and cons of ubuntu because i've never used an ubuntu smartphone before.........
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2016Design is copy of iphone 6s plus.Maybe not; from Meizu MX 2, Meizu phones keep this line of design. Iphone copy Meizu...
Everything about this phone is great except kinda lacklustre camera and those huge bezels. I hope next time they will reduce those bezels.
Nayan Khan, 01 Mar 2016Meizu PRO 5 mini when will be available?It won't: http://www.gizchina.com/2016/0...ini-anymore/
Hi , where i could find MPN Numbers for Meizu and Elephone devices ? Is anyone aware of that ? Thanks in advance. Great device indeed .
Meizu also releases the same with Ubuntu Touch, why no version phones with unbutu touch or Sail Fish OS are list in the site. For lone time seeing not much info on other OS expect android, iOS are seen here
theAndy, 12 Feb 2016Hey there I'm looking for a high end dual-SIM phone and the Pro5 popped up on my screen. I'... moreHuawei Mate 8 have better camera. M Pro 5 is a beautiful device you get much for the $. What i dont like is the camera,not good. Im now used to my mine and i like it very much.
I bought Meizu pro 5 more from curiosity than actual need. I wanted to have to my hands one of the phones that I see at the top of Antutu benchmarks.
Well my friends. This is a piece of art. Wonderfull design, incredible build quality, wonderful screen and absolutely crazy speeds...
This is an amazing smartphone.
Playing even at the most heavy games is just like sending an sms. It never gets hot.A little warm many but not hot.
Accurate GPS, fast wifi, wonderful battery life. I really can't find anything bad to say about this phone.
Excellent rear camera, very good selfie camera, the single speaker is good enough for a single speaker.
Because I am fan of finding bad things I will say what are the things that I didn't like.
I would like a little smaller screen. 5,7" is a little bigger than a single hand can manage.
I also would like an IR blaster.
What about dual front speakers?
It doesn't support special characters for Multi language sms like Greek, Polish etc.
Also a little cheaper. 500 Euros are pretty expensive for a china phone.
Well. I can't find something else.
I believe that if someone don't care about the things that I mentioned above this phone is a piece of art...
Always sorry for my pure English.
I'm looking for a high end dual-SIM phone and the Pro5 popped up on my screen. I'm not decided yet, also considering the Huawei Mate 8, don't know yet which one will turn out to be a better choice (any suggestions?)
But although I researched the manufacturer's web site and several forums for information I still couldn't find out: Is it possible to operate one SIM1 with an always-on data plan and still receive phone calls on SIM2 while being online?
As far as I found out in the opinions about the Mate 8 on this web site, is capable of that. But how about the Meizu Pro5? Does anyone have the ability to test that or can refer to some official source?
Appreciate your help a lot!
Allyson, 14 Jan 2016 You're absolutely wrong about the camera of this handset . Meizu uses the PRO 5 Sony IMX 230... moreBefore say something use it first.the camera is good but not the best it have high noise when in dark and sometimes es blurrr.in day sometimes it overexpose but sometimes great I have it I know but I change to LG g4 because I want a better camera rear and front.pro5 maybe good for beginner like u
I've bought this awesome phone about 3 weeks ago. It's very classy first of all. Design is very nice. Well built.
As for performances...nothing that bad I can say about it. Everything you want it delivers. In antutu v 6.0.4. it gave me 84095 points. It's the 3Gb Ram and 32Gb Rom version, but it is more than enough for me.
Battery is ok. I mean I haven't watched movies from start to end on it, didn't have time. But with 100% in the morning with relative browsing and ocassionaly phone calls + 1h of gaming in total after 8hours it is at ~70% left.
I'm satisfied with this phone and would not trade if for something else atm
jan martin, 27 Jan 2016Got my Pro 5(64gb, black/gray) 2 weeks ago.
Good battery life
Great ... moreHi.
I'm wondering about how good is the battery life. How long does it last in real application in Stand-by Time, Talking Time, and Browsing Time?
Got my Pro 5(64gb, black/gray) 2 weeks ago.
Good battery life
Finger print sensor is accurate
User Friendly gestures
Poor camera (dull images)
Poor display (Yellowish and dim)
Compatibility of some applications (FB messenger not fully supported after update)
Google Playstore is not pre installed.
Zombie tsunami will automatically become chinese version after installing the english version from play store.
Glitch in the sound when liking a facebook post while listening to music via earphones.
Otg for usb type is hard to find.
This phone is really faulty.
This is a waste of money, unless meizu would fix the camera algorithm and the other bugs.
I have not gotten a hold of this phone yet, but looking at its specs, im simply impressed! But with different views and opinions around, for me it is just a matter of personal preference at the end of the day. But let us not forget that we cannot avoid some defects from unit to unit, that is why experiences vary from one to the other...
After having used this phone for quite some time now, I have the following comments:
1. Battery life (I didn't get the 95 hours endurance rating like in the gsmarena test, but anyway it's better than many phones out there now)
2. Lovely design and build quality
3. Flyme OS 5 (after the upgrade) is a joy to use, it's my favourite OS on top of Android
4. Top notch performance (with Flyme 5 is virtually "flying")
1. Display quality disappointing (screen turns bluish when tilted and sometimes all colours of the rainbow)
2. Camera overexposes all pictures even in normal light conditions, pictures are "burnt" in the sunlit areas - this is a huge disappointment, low light is miserable - producing a lot of noise and unreal, cartoony artifacts, selfie cam is very poor as well
I would not include as a con some of Flyme bugs and omissions which the development team might be working on it.
So my advice is that if you can overcome the cons, you might be very pleased with this phone, I just couldn't and sold it already.
I just don't know why gsmarena team portrait it as the best phone on the planet.
On the other hand, there's not too much alternative out there.
