I have got this model over 2 years. Two years was relatively ok. Few month ago baterry had colapsed. After changing it according to youtube video instruction it seemed to be ok. Then I upgraded Flyme OS to higher version. Terrible user friendly environment! You cannot downgrade smartly!
At the end part of display stopped to functioning.
I dont count International support from Meizu as it is only in chinese!
No Meizu anymore!
At first it seems ok, but after a while this phone becomes slow,it takes quite some time to answer a command.It's not as good quality as it sounds when reading the specifications.
I really love the interface of this phone but the front camera is a disappointment and the phone gets hot easily like reallyyyyy HOT.
its a VERY GOOD phone - bought mine 2 years back and still working great until today. Looking forward for new series - for my 2nd phone. WORTH BUYING!HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This phone is awesome. I have z ultra, samsung note 3, and i think this phone is the easiest to use because of the thin bezel and light weight yet with big screen. Need some tinkering to prolong battery life: turn off auto sync, use 3g if 4g signal not strong, uninstall 3rd party keyboards, use greenify& ccleaner... really love this phone, beautiful screen!

roselee9, 16 Jun 2017I have update my version toFlyme 18.104.22.168G. I wish to downgrade to its old version but I dont ... morefor your information and any MX4 users out there, the best version is Flyme 4.0.4I..the newer version got some serious ram management problem. i tried many flyme version, ranged from 22.214.171.124 to 6.x, all has ram problem when you started to use camera and record 4k video, the ram will stay 75% occupied until you restart the phone. so the best solution is to use the old flyme because meizu will NEVER fix the problem. solution is:
1) downgrade to Flyme 4.0.4I(International)(kitkat)
2) buy newer phone
but i always prefer number 1. all app i am using right now has no problem with kitkat.

how to downgrade: just copy update.zip to root directory and turn off the phone. go to recovery by pressing volume up + power button. tick both options in recovery and proceed. always backup first.
I have update my version toFlyme 126.96.36.199G. I wish to downgrade to its old version but I dont know what is the original version, and also how to downgrade it. Anyone here can give me the link that I can learn to do this?
I'm not an expert in smartphones, but I'm very fussy about my daily driver, it's had to perfect. None of the phones is perfect, Meizu MX4 is not perfect, just my best ever daily driver. Not even the latest Meizu models could compete with MX4, in my opinions. I tried many branded smartphones, still Meizu MX4 is my choice.
This is the best phone I ever used... Price, spec, camera... No others phones can compete, not even MX4 Pro. Not even a phone is perfect. I had 4 units of Meizu MX4. No regret. Just keep stock, price when down so cheap. Unbelievable price now..
Simcard problem. Already insert simcard, but system tell no simcard. Camera is OK.
The screen to body ratio is amazing. The screen is wide, and the navigation button is outside the screen. Even today only much bigger phone can get such a wide screen. I don't understand why other manufacturers do not make screens with such ratio.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016Agree, the biggest drawback would be the front camera quality. The rest is running perfectly !front camera is ok, clarity is very good, dynamic range is good, its fix focus is good, photo clear all the way, and even better you can do manual mode on front camera, setting up shutter speed, iso,etc. way better than many midrange phone with 5mp front cam. the only drawback is low light quality......................same as rear camera..i guess that is the limit of the old camera sensor..
kiki, 14 Jan 2017did the battery arrived ? Cause I have the same problemyeah.same issue here. totally satisfied with the phone performance. the only problem here is my battery worn out. hard to find replacement for the battery.
for those who has this phone..stay on kitkat..dont upgrade it to lollipop..flyme 4/5/6 lollipop eating too much ram,multitasking is impossible, i tried them all. now i am sticking with the final kitkat version flyme 4.2. 8.2I, multitasking is flawless. either stick to kitkat or buy a newer phone.
spec high midship level.. price at entry level.. rm299 buy at lazada.. its not have memory expand.. buy for that price, no phone can reach thats spec..
I just bought Meizu MX4 and it doesn't have any battery out of box so I charge it but then it only go until 80% then like it stop charging.
i was waiting for this phone to arrive, so what is your impression for this phone? i bought it online because it was deadly cheap right now (32gb ver.) and i am planning to give my current zenfone 2 laser to my brother after this phone arrive. the newer meizu m5 price is slightly higher than the old mx4 but i decided to go with the old mx4 because it uses sony sensor for the camera. i guess MTK6595 will perform better than SD410 inside zenfone 2 laser.
