Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition review


Is this stylish Ubuntu phone ready for prime time? Not yet.

Nice design ; Good build quality ; Powerful specs ; Ubuntu Phone is different

Ubuntu Phone still buggy ; Lack of apps ; Apple inspired design, but still not Apple ; No MicroSD card

Ubuntu Phone has plenty of potential, but at the moment most people will be frustrated with the limitations and instability of the software. Cristian Parrino, Vice President, Mobile and Online Services at Canonical, told me that they aim to make Ubuntu...

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition


After failing to raise the funds to launch its own Ubuntu phone on Indiegogo, Canonical delivered its Linux-based Ubuntu OS via the BQ Aquarius E4.5 handset earlier this year. But it had a big problem – the app selection was rubbish.

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition review


A good handset with a great screen and neat Scopes feature

Good hardware for the price, large, sharp screen, Scopes are a neat idea

Ubuntu Touch lacks essential apps, disappointing camera

As a handset, the MX4 Ubuntu Edition is the kind of bargain not seen since the OnePlus One. What other sub-£250 phone can offer an octa-core processor, decent 20.7MP camera, well over 24 hours of battery life and better performance in JavaScript...

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition: Reasonable hardware, poor software


The second Ubuntu phone offers stronger hardware, but it's still held back by Ubuntu Touch

The Meizo MX4 is no regular consumer handset. You need an invitation to buy one; only the committed need – and actually can – apply. If you really want an Ubuntu phone, however, bearing in mind how rough-around-the-edges the operating system feels,...

Обзор Meizu MX4


Четвертое поколение китайского аппарата компании Meizu. На этот раз был использован металл для изготовления корпуса, а камера получила модуль на 20 мегапикселей

Ох, не хотелось бы перехвалить Meizu MX4 и навлечь на себя хейтеров всего китайского. Устройство действительно вышло классным, придраться практически не к чему: разве что слишком простая оболочка, отсутствие NFC и FM-приемника должны каким-то образом...

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition review


The latest Ubuntu smartphone shows the OS has mobile potential, especially when combined with good hardware. Still, a meagre choice of apps make Android and iOS better choices for consumers and businesses alike.

Great value hardware, large and sharp display, Scopes are a fine alternative to individual apps

Very few essential apps, video devours battery, camera isn't as impressive as a 20.7MP model should be

Meizu MX4 review


The OS is quirky, the hardware gorgeous, and the camera takes super pictures. However, the limited app store attached to Ubuntu Mobile could make the MX4 frustrating to live with every day.

Meizu MX4 review: Alternadroid


While Xiaomi's busy conquering the world with hardly leaving China, and the likes of Oppo and Huawei think globally, as they act locally, Meizu is somewhere in between. Some three years now and several generations of supercharged smartphones to match...

5.36" 1152 x 1920px IPS LCD display of 418ppi ; Heavily customized Flyme OS 4 on top of Android 4.4.2 ; Octa-core MediaTek MT6595 chipset, quad-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A17 & quad-core 1.7GHz Cortex-A7, 2GB of RAM ; 20.7 MP Sony sensor camera with two-tone...

Hard to find outside Asia ; No microSD card slot ; 64GB option hard to find ; Lower resolution front facing camera compared to some rivals

The Meizu MX4 makes a great first impression and has no trouble keeping it up. Its credentials are solid and there's little to really gripe about. The bezel-less display is impressive, the camera is very good, the build has improved over previous...

Meizu MX4 review: Meizu's beautiful hardware is marred by buggy software


Unlike more established Chinese brands such as Xiaomi or OnePlus , you've probably never heard of Meizu. The Beijing-based company has been building smartphones for a while now, and the MX4 is the company's fourth device -- and quite a stand-out it it...

The Meizu MX4 has a beautiful design and interface, and an unusual 5:3 display. It also has 4G LTE support for most regions.

The bug-ridden operating system leaves much to be desired, and its poor camera performance and battery life are disappointing.

The Meizu MX4 may have the looks to stand toe-to-toe with the flagships -- as long as you like its squarish shape -- but its buggy software and poor performance mean you should steer clear for now.
