I am using MX 5 for more than a year now and here is my review. The phone itself is amazing. Camera is great, processor is just perfect, i can run anything with no lag or bad fps, display and sound are also good.
The phone for its price is really good. But the problem is Flyme (android based but slightly modified platform). The flyme itself is good, it runs very smoothly but the problem is that meizu is focusing only on chinese market and they actually stopped having international and chinse version of flyme (atm its only so called "global" version which is basicly chinese, since they started adding chinese apps so i haven't upgrade flyme in about half a year now). Also with every update they broke something (snapchat, messenger...) and they need months to fix a tiny problem. And for the end, in recent updates they removed google mobile services (playstore, gmail...) and people have loads of problems not being able to install google from meizu's app store.
one of the best phones I have ever had. camera quality is best compared to high brands like samsung, lg and others, also no issues in playing high end games. it is a real beast in mobile phones. i am using it now for more than a year
Own this phone for about 45 days - few days ago the screen started to press randomly everywhere on the screen at once as I unlock it, it is impossible to make a call, or to do anything else. Now I am on GsmArena to look-for another phone - but this time definitely NOT mEIZU.
I have used this phone for more than 8 months. Heres my review on this
1. Excellent display. You can compare it with any high end phones. probably others will get stunt seeing this one.
2. Sound is very loud and clear.
3. Premium metal build. Design is superb
4. Flyme UI is fast
5. Flyme store provides nice themes & wallpapers like that in mi phones
6. Sensor is good on this
1. Battery drains fast on using camera & internet. Lasts for just 15-16 hours on heavy usage
2. Contacts seems missing at times. Mails get stuck at times
My final take on this if you are plainning a brand change try this one. You wont be disappointed at all. For more details on this mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Worst phone. I am regretting now. Meizu says it has used gorilla glass 3 on camera lens but despite keeping it with all the care, the camera lens is easily scratched. I am totally dissatisfied with this phone especially due to camera lens issue.
