I bought this phone about 3 months ago, and I'm super happy with it so far. I only got the 16gb version, which gave me about 13 or so gb of free space. It's enough for me, but might not be for some other people. It's light, cheap, takes great pictures, has great sound from the speakers, and is fast. The fingerprint scanner works really well too. It's basically like an iPhone 6 but a third of the price. I've heard some people complain that Chinese brand phones really slow down after half a year or so, so I guess I have to wait and see whether this one will keep me happy for a long time or not, but I'm VERY happy with my purchase so far. Thanks to this website for helping me find it!
wath should I buy the 32 GB or the 16 GB ? How much free space have the 16 GB and how much MB dose a maximum resolution photo have? It will appear Android 6.1 for this phone ?
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE
Hello guyz i made this account on gsmarena to share my problem with this phone i purchased this device for my mother she is more in using it for photographs i can manage storage heat n other problems but the biggest blunder the meizu has done is its Designing department that designed it looks beautiful but practicaly all its specs are trash they look good on paper though so the prob was its 20mp camera take shit images for first 2 months the images will be good but after that its lens start getting scratches the cause of scratches is the design blunder when u keep ur device on flat surface the lens module takes all the burden n it gets scratches over tym. So my friends i again want to warn u all dont spend ur hard earned money on this trash better keep urself away from these trashs even my old lava 504q served me well n ty for reading this essay.
no expandable memory
no optical image stabilization for 20mp camera
no ir blaster
no MHL for tv support
notification area shows only one colour
no night mode in camera app

vessi, 07 Jan 2016Can someone tell me how to fix problem with my Meizu MX5...........speakers don't work but if ... moreI have problems when I get a call and they can't here me so good any solution for it
Hi , I have little mechanic problem with mx5. I cant open slot for sim cards. I put the pin in hole and nothing happens.Sim slot doesn´t come out. Pls can someone help me ?
don't do it the hard way like I did. if you need google service, simply go the the installed app store and search for google installer. Install the google installer and then install any google apps. That is it, no need to root the phone or complicated software. to my disappointment, It does not have casting.
I have been using MX5 from October. At first, I was able to use 2-sim at the same time. Don't know what happened I wasn't able to use the second one after a while. So I left it, and decided I can live with that. But today phone's screen went off out of nowhere. No physical damage. Sometimes it gets back, and sometimes a white, or sometimes orange screen comes. I heard the phone's starting sound but no vision. Just those screen I mentioned. I assure you there wasn't any physical damage. In conclusion,
1. Problem with 2nd SIM card after a while. Not working at all
2. White screen came on. Cannot use the phone anymore.
3. There is not any online help that you can use to repair your phone without sending back to China. There is but insufficient.
4. Some apps are in Chinese and you cannot uninstall them. (Keyboard, Weather, Maps, App center, Music player, Voice and etc.). Really annoying.
5. Sometimes finger scanner doesn't recognize
6. Battery life only last for one day even with not an extensive use. But charging is really fast
7. Has heating problem. It is like on fire while charging. Gets hot really fast when play game.
After all, PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS BUGGY PHONE. I AM WRITING THIS BECAUSE I DON'T WANT YOU MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID.
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2016Hi, I have following questions. Will any body reply. ! Which is better honor 7 or meizu mx ... moreThe apps are in chinese because they have a chinese version of "Flyme", in chinese version you don't have google play also. I also had a problem when i got my phone that flyme was in Chinese. I fixed that with installing international version of flyme(i just downloaded it from flyme site). After that all my problems were fixed and till now i didn't have any problems with the phone.
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2016Hi,
I have following questions. Will any body reply.
! Which is better honor 7 or meizu mx ... moreBoth phones are great. I am a MX5 user and the phone is just great. No app is in chinese except some portions of the security app. The storage is the only problem here but i can easily manage using an otg. But if you have bit of extra money Honor 7 is a great buy. My frnd has honor and its good too. The sd card expansion is a plus point.
However gaming is excellent on the mx5, tried lots of hd games i.e. asphalt 8, implosion, godfire, gta etc.. All work exceptionally good.
No matter what phone you pickup, both are great. If storage is not the problem mx5 is a beast otherwise go for Honor 7.
