WoW Meizu, Pro 5 is just a crazy phone! Really good job, AMOLED + Exynos from S6 + metal + DualSIM + 64 ROM/4GB RAM version... madness! Pro 5 is so good, true beast!
My friend use MX5 and i heard many good things about FlymeOS (SmartTouch is amazing feature)... I want Pro 5 in my pocket!

Anonymous, 10 Nov 2015It's andorid, so things can be changedThat's true...
My main gripe is the lack of an app drawer, and I guess lack of availability in the west. Other than that its a great phone, have to wonder if Samsung would even let Meizu use the chipset closer to their own flagship release, because it really harm Samsung's sales.

Physical home button is good, it means more screen estate, but suit yourself.

What i consider are the performace, battery life, and software.
Great specs but a rather modest battery, a deal breaker for me. I would never buy a Meizu phone anyway, for the same reason I wouldn't buy one from Samsung - hate physical home buttons.
Nooi , 11 Nov 2015Its maximum brightness has 321 cd/m2. And I always find GSMarena test is very accurate.Modern phones have very good light absorbing filters, especially Meizu. You don't need a pure brightness now just to deal with sunlight. It's like camera megapixels and processor frequency. Brightness is irrelevant nowadays. You'll be more than fine with 200-250. I use just 20-25% of brightness on street on my SGS6, yet I don't like dim displays, so I don't use auto brightness on SGS6, as it makes it very dim in poor lighting.

OMG! look at the battery life! The is probably the best smartphone ever made! and all that for only $480!
zeeBomb, 11 Nov 2015The deca core Helio X20 is promising though. I really would like how things will fare out in b... moreIt is but they should have gone with just an oct-core and put 4 A72s on there. It'd be an absolute beast! I think they're going for that with the X30 now though so it goes 2-4-4 instead of 4-4-2 which logically sounds great for low power usage. Going to be an exciting year for SoCs though! X20 and 30 vs 8 series Exynos vs SD 820 vs A9 and later the A10 vs K950 and its possibly successor!
Steel12, 11 Nov 2015Help me please. Meizu Pro 5 or Nexus 6P?The 6P has really poor quality glass and metal. Bends like no tomorrow and the rear glass near the camera is rather easy to crack.
holy cow 420 seconds (7 minutes) of open camera shutter time? not even the LG G4 can do that! with a jury-rigged ND filter stuck to the lens i can make fantastic long exposure shots with this.
The review still needs more in-depth points for the camera.
The article currently failed to mention that it is Hybrid AF as well (Phase Detection + Laser AutoFocus)
We need to know how it would fare against Samsung which uses the same technology and CPU/GPU

Beside that amazing phone for that price
When I look objectively, the batterylife isn't that great.
GSMArena tests batterylife @ 50% brightness. Mz Pro 5 has a dismal brightness at 50%, just 102 cd/m2. Other phones have in range of 150-200 cd/m2. This itself makes the batterylife test biased for Mz Pro 5.
What I feel is that batterylife will be good, not something steller. I normally like the display to be at around 200 cd/m2 in normal usage. At that brightness, batterylife will go down by another 30-40% compared to this numbers.
