Meizu is a great phone regarding design, materials used,and hardware.
Flyme is overall easy to use when you get used to it, and it is very simplified, but yet very user friendly for multitasking. Smart touch is a great help when you switch between apps.
However there are few necessary improvements.
First, speed dial is a must for such a large screen.
Settings could use some more options.
App drawer is left out, like in Apple phones, but I personally like it and find it too crowded on the homescreen. Of course, solution is to simply put all necessary apps in one folder.
Camera is great and gives very cool photos.
Screen is beautiful, and very easy to use even in very bright sunlight. Density and resolution are great and 2k resolution would be waste of time and battery.
Speaking of battery, it is 2 days normal use easy. I had some weather widget, and found out that it actuallu drained my battery by being connected to gps even with location turned off. When I removed it, battery is really durable, even with constantly having wifi turned. With heavy use, you can expect day and a half.
To summarize, great phone with some minor improvements needed on Flyme. Otherwise, we have a real contender in top class. Its bigger brother, MX Pro has some better features, but it is also too big, too demanding screen which is unnecessary.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2015Lenovo vibe x2 or MEIZU MX4 is better ?
mx4 for sure
hey guys my mx4 tends to heat up quickly when im browsing the web but when i play games like dead trigger 2, real racing 3, or the walking it doesn't heat up that much do u guys experienced this or is there something i can do to fix this
better meizu mx4, the battery is a strong point in this case, heavy usage with all time 4G on lasts a day and I really use this phone, much better than my old lg g3 that i had a lot of problems with that phone...
