A good phone isn't just about the specs.
While the hardware is rivaling the S6, this device wont give you anywhere near as much freedom to fully make use of it. There are no tools such as Odin and there is a lack of documentation, which makes it problematic to develop or install custom roms for instance.
This alone wouldn't be that bad since there used to be tools to recover your phone but for some reason those are incompatible now with recent firmwares. This makes it rather easy to partially (i.e. losing recovery) or fully brick your device.
If you are an enthusiast, think hard if you go cheap or buy a device from a brand which actually has your needs covered.
the ram is 4gb but the battery below 3100 mah..anyone can give comment about it..tq

Been using Meizu again after switching many smartphones for reviews...so far, they're still my favourite. Hoping their baseband would expand better in the following years to come.

If you get rid of the Flyme OS the Meizu pro 5 it's is 10x better than any smartphone before the S7 series and it was much cheaper at that. battery life if phenomenal, typically i go 2 days before i have to charge it
(google search meizu pro 5 ROM& goto xda-developers for help changing the OS the flymeOS)
Currently running the unofficial Cyanogen Mod on mine

I have Meizu M2 note which I say, it last longer than 1 day. That's pure music, wifi, messenger, games (ppsspp) - real Racing - beach buggy and clash of clans. Usual mode is Balanced (6cores running) and 50 - 25% Brightness. End of day 30+%

Anonymous, 26 May 2016i would like to know why we can not change everything in english that's the thing i don't like... morefrom where did you buy it? does it come with google play services? does it support OTA updates?
Can you please tell me if this phone is "dual sim full active" or just "dual sim stand by" ? When you use the phone in dual sim mode and you are talking on "line 1" and someone is calling you on "line 2" do you receive the call or the phone is busy?
I'm planning to buy the 64G version 4G RAM and the answer is very important for me.
For example I had Huawei Honor 6 Plus and that phone was dual SIM full active (had 2 separate antenna)
