What work for this device?
Well, on the look front, the Meizu MX5 stands out extremely good with its slim 7.6 mm body, state-of-the-art colour, smooth finish and superb fine polishing. Handy and easily fitting in the pocket. Moreover, Meizu MX5 is preferably for those who favour smartphones with eye-popping designs.
The device has a 5.5-inch AMOLED (1080 x 1920 pixels) display offering a 10,000:1 contrast ratio that makes for bright, sharp and expressive colours.
Infact the latest technology in it has even reduced power consumption to zero in dark-hued pictures. And for the movie geeks, the phone provides an entertainment in full HD version especially when you are travelling in some crowded state for longer hours, like in a metro or bus.
The corning Gorilla Glass 3 enables sensitive and smoother multi-touch. The phone comes with three integrated buttons on the right bumper of the chassis – volume up, volume down and lock/wake up screen.
The left bumper is reserved for a dual SIM tray. Two nano-SIM (GSM and GSM) cards can be inserted into the MX5’s single tray.
Like all other Meizu phones, this device also has a one touch-enabled Home button that has three functions – a slight tap takes the user to the previous screen, a single press returns the user to the main screen and a long press locks the phone.
The Meizu MX5 is equipped with a brand-new fingerprint identification system: mTouch 2.0. The new oval fingerprint sensor makes identification faster and appearance smoother and elegant. The scanner unlocks the phone in a blink.
The MX5 has Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop) operating system that runs on 2.2 GHz Octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU with Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 chipset. With 3 GB RAM, the phone works at lightning speed.
The phone has 16 GB on-board memory – enough to store over 250 songs and three high-definition movies.
It packs a 20.7-megapixel camera with dual-tone flash enabling a right white balance when taking photos in low-light areas. There was no distortion in photo when I blew it up to 150 percent.
The smartphone also comes with a 5-megapixel front camera for high-quality selfies. So girls! Its an alarm for you get ready for the coolest selfies.Similar to Iphones, the camera has slow motion, beauty, microspur and light field modes for accurate photography.
The camera has a 6P lens, which significantly helps in increasing its peripheral resolution. The non-removable Li-Ion 3,150 mAh battery charges fully in approximately an hour and can be extended out for almost 36 hours with Wi-Fi on for almost 6-8 hours.
The phone also has an in-built call and voice recorder.
What doesn’t work?
While you can fill your music gallery with as many songs you can but the phone does not incorporate FM radio in the feature list. And sadly it also heats up after prolonged use and/or while playing games.
The phone quites lags while playing high-definition games for long hours. This might be due to the running of apps in background that used nearly half of the RAM.
Well, keeping aside its minor lagging issues, it manages to grab eye ball with long battery life, and high-definition display. The smartphone is a complete package for a user craves for in a device, alongwith an amazing price tag of Rs. 17,999 on Snapdeal for the 16 GB variant, buyers are looking at a treat in Meizu MX5. The company has worked hard in keeping the design simple yet attractive and handy. As usual, Meizu scores the maximum for its camera quality and feature.
So, concludingly a big yes for Meizu MX5!
