Locked boot loader and blocked root don't mean shit. Look at moto they try left and right to block root and we get in them every time (Droid x and x 2, Droid 2, razor, ext) If there is enough interest in the phone it will be rooted.

HTC was unheard of 5 or 6 years ago. It won't surprise me if Meizu becomes a household name before long. Same with Samsung, they were unheard of 10 years ago when Nokia and Ericsson were kings!

Just about to buy a Samsung GS3 (unlocked) for £480 here in the UK when a friend of mine visiting London from Hong Kong showed me his new MX4. Overall I'm impressed with its speed and build quality although it's made from plastic. It's very smooth without any lag and I've no problems with the UI. Battery life is good with moderate use. I've now asked him to leave the phone with me and get himself a new one when he gets back to HK. Not bad for £247!

This phone aint bad, but as GSMArena said, they removed lots of nice ICS features. For example, you cant change the default launcher, browser, email client and other apps from the default. They also locked the bootloader and blocked root (even on the HK version) on the latest 1.0.1 update. (They also released a new MX dual-core fixing the hardware faults of the previous, so in a way i actually bought a prototype).
Read a bit on meizume.com before you buy it, and see how other people experienced their phones. You might find out that if you like customizing your phone, this might not be the best buy.
ferrarijh, 19 Jul 2012Chinese products still have lot to be improved... the only thing i like about this product is ... moreMeizu never made a product named iOrange. They made MP3 players before, until 2011 when they came out with their first phone called the M9. After that they released MX dual-core, MX quad-core, and another dual-core MX (which is stupid in my eyes).
I think if no radio it's and non replaceblae okay but non expandable storage and poor viewing angles is big problem.
robin, 19 Jul 2012your evaluation about meizu is partial and full of prejudice ,china is not the representation ... moreI respect you and chinese people. Chinese people very hardworking. Unfortunately china well known worldwide besides it's history,great wall,tea,culture for it's ability to copy everything and not perfect.So meizu sholud work hard to bring chinese electronic brand to a trustable as sony,samsung etc. stage
