Обзор смартфона Meizu MX5

 

Мощный металлический смартфон, оснащенный 20 МП модулем камеры и лазерной фокусировкой, от китайской компании Meizu

К качеству связи у меня нет вопросов. Виброзвонок по силе лучше, чем на M1/M2.

Meizu MX5. Первый взгляд

 

Металлический корпус, обновленный дизайн с упором на более удобные габариты, клавиша mBack вместо привычного кружка с подсветкой и фосфорным слоем, оснащенная сканером, а также SuperAMOLED-экран – все это новый смартфон Meizu MX5

Meizu MX5 review: Good overall package; but enough competition in the sub-20k price bracket - Tech2

 

Meizu is a relatively new Chinese phone maker to have entered the Indian market. It has launched the m1 note and the m2 note before this and just recently announced the m2. The Meizu MX5 represents the top-of-the-line phone from the Meizu lineup. Of...

Meizu MX5 has been priced at Rs 19,999 for the 16GB variant. At this price it competes with its Chinese peers such as Xiaomi Mi 4 and OnePlus One and also with Motorola Moto X Play . The MX5 is a good phone, resemblance to the iPhone notwithstanding....

The Meizu MX5 unabashedly clones the iPhone

 

Chinese smartphone maker Meizu's latest effort may seem rather familiar. The company, while not as well known outside of China as Xiaomi, is known for its liberal borrowing of design cues from Apple, and its latest phone the MX5 is no different.

The 16GB version of Meizu's MX5 will retail for 1,799 yuan in China, which converts roughly to $290, £190 and AU$390. The 64GB version will be a little more expensive at 2,399 yuan -- that's $385, £250 or AU$515 -- which isn't too bad, as you're...

Meizu MX5 Review

 

After the strong flagship that the MX4 was, Meizu is now ready to follow up with its successor – the MX5. The company has shaked things up considerably, but the overall formula has remained unchanged: the same design language, the same ...

Stylish design ; Good performance ; Fingerprint sensor

Maximum brightness is not high enough ; Inaccurate screen colors ; Automatic brightness is far from optimal ; Flyme UI needs a lot of improvement ; Poor video recording quality ; No landscape keyboard in Messages and Email ; 4K video doesn't play on a...

The Meizu MX5 makes a good first impression, but ends up feeling like a disappointment, especially since it isn't that much better than its predecessor.

Meizu MX5 Smartphone Review

 

It's certainly looks like an iPhone, but the Meizu MX5 is all Android. It's also one of the mid-range Chinese handsets that are known for offering a terrific price-to-performance ratio.

Thin display bezels, excellent display ratio ; Above average performance ; Simple and intuitive Flyme OS

Insufficient maximum display brightness ; Unbalanced color imaging ; Flyme OS details a bit unpolished

Excellent design with a highly attractive display-to-device ratio and an unusual user interface with Flyme OS are features that make the Meizu MX5 one of those Chinese smartphones that yield interest around the globe. An excellent design, high...

Meizu MX5 Review

 

As an overall smartphone, the Meizu MX5 is good. If you don't mind buying phones from a new brand that doesn't have adequate service support at the moment, then go ahead, the MX5 is a good device. On the other hand, if you do care about the camera...

Good display ; Good performance

Camera pales in comparison to competitors

Meizu MX5 Express Review: Ideal for geeks, but a bit too geeky for others

 

Meizu MX5 is among the better phones available for under Rs 20,000 with a great camera and a super-fast performance

If you can learn to use an Android phone without a back button, Meizu MX5 is among the better phones available for under Rs 20,000. Buy this if you want a phone that can be pushed to the limits when it comes to performance.

Meizu MX5: First Impressions

 

Smartphone launches these days seem not limited to a mere introduction of the product by the company but an exhibition of how large its fan base is. Lately, we have seen Xiaomi, Asus, and now Meizu announcing their new devices at events in India which...
