Philip and I, 22 Jan 2015Considering one of the best smartphone in the market today.
Question 1: the screen resolut... more- ppi depends of resolution AND screen size.
sqrt((1152*1152)+(1920*1920))/5,36=417.74 or ~418ppi
1080p means 1080*1920 resolution so the screen will have different ratio (for the same screen size 1080x1920=heigh 118.66mm, width 66.75mm. 1152x1920=heigh 116.74mm, width 70mm)
Screen with 1080p resolution and ~441ppi has 5" screen diagonal

Check the GSMArena MX4 review and you will see a bunch of blank spaces where they should have inputed display stats at 50% brightness. They couldn't because the display was already too dim. The 50% setting is like the 10% setting on your average phone.

Mine is okay setting my brightness to 50-60 is great, no issues at all. Happy to have this perfect handset.
MikoG, 06 Jan 2015I'm using this phone for over a month now and I can tell you, that you can enjoy all games in ... moreUnless Meizu isn't updating the firmware on the showroom phones in their stores the brightness problem is still there on both the MX4 and Pro.
Pushed all the way to 100% the brightness is great, but setting it anything lower and it gets dim fast. I generally set my phones at 50-60% brightness but in the case of the MX4 it would have to be at 85% minimum to compare.
Considering one of the best smartphone in the market today.
Question 1: the screen resolution is not FHD 1152x1920p @ 418ppi? Why not 441ppi? (1152 is above the 1080p).
Question 2: gsmarena specs put 4.4.4kitkat when in actual 4.4.2 only?
Question 3: when will receive the update from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4 to 5.0. ?

Hey if i bought the C (China-mobile) version of the phone i understand that 3g will not work outside of china mobile.
Now what i would like to know is, can i install the A(all others) or U(unicom) version of the software to get normal 3g bands working ?
As on the most other smartphones today (Samsung is a exception) the screen panel is very soft, so colors and content is disorted on some more firm preassure.

Derrick.F, 10 Jan 2015Should I get mx4 or mx4 pro?
I like the mx4 pro for the fingerprint but compared to the mx4, ... moreIMO, both phones are good so it's a matter of your budget. If you can spare the extra cash I'd say go for the pro... the little extra stuff it has (scanner, 1GB RAM more, QHD, Audio chip, Sapphire glass on the rear camera,NFC 5mp on front and bit more battery worth the money.
by no means standard MX4 is bad. As you said the performance is higher and I love using it, but you won't see any difference in performance with PRO.
Actually, the Basemark OS 2 / Basemark X scores are incorrect. My scores are: 860~ at balanced mode for the OS 2, and the following for performance mode:
Basemark OS 2: 1000 (overall score)
Basemark X: 16889 (at default - medium quality benchmark)
So, this definitely needs some correction.
Should I get mx4 or mx4 pro?
I like the mx4 pro for the fingerprint but compared to the mx4, mx4 speed is better. Mx4 pro also has a 5mp front camera while mx4 has 2mp. Mx4 pro has 3gb of ram while the mx4 has 2gb of ram.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2015Antutu benchmark marks it above note 4 I know. Mine hits ~50k. It's the other benchmarks I am talking about and I don't know why they mark it so low, but I guess something is not right in the tests since every game or anything else I tested my phone with runs without any lag.
