Meizu MX2 - User Reviews

  • Wow even a cheap phone has s3 specs Don't you think it's s3 that should be a rip off since a cheap phone has it's specs And supposedly it should be the ultimate flagship ?? I think mx2 was the OnePlus before oneplus and flagship killer And s3 was the rip off

  • This happened to me when I bought it in China a few days after I bought it and it couldn't be fixed so they gave me a new one.... It's just happened to my new one though about 3 months onward.... From my memory I think it has to do with when I use the mite and vibration on/off feature that I have lost the sounds....

  • You can get this phone from Wish on the AppStore or Play Store

  • With a MHL adapter connect it to an available HDMI port in the TV.

  • how to use wifi direct ?

  • pls help...can't access the touch screen. need to tilt my phone everytime i use it just to access the desired buttons...pls help...badly need your suggestions/opinions....tnx

  • How to I connect my MX2 to a TV?

  • Hi just got this phone 2 days ago and I find it brilliant ! Have been using a note 2 for over a yr and broke the screen recently then was using an iPhone 4 for a while ! This phone is waaaaaay better than the iPhone and as good as the note 2 only difference is screen size not quality and battery life shorter than note if ur looking for a cheap phone with great performance this is the phone for u ?

  • No sound on my meizu please..just buy 1day ago.. ;(

  • Where 2 buy this phone and please be real no fakers

  • the one being sold in israel is 4 band.

  • Yeah, yeah... Even here #%^ chinese do advertise there stores.....

  • I've bought mine at Very responsive and friendly support chat team, btw!

  • I bought it from a chinese online store outlet. They are quite reliable and delivered in time.

  • Someone heard about battery replacement for it? Mine is still ok, but want to be ready if something... ;)

  • Go to and order it there :)

  • i would love to have this phone,please can one tell how do i get it?

  • x nine

  • Who says cheap can't be Good? Anything cheaper is not bad.

  • I'd like to see a review of this phone!! You made the review of almost all China phones.. Waiting for this one!!

  • yes have google play,its a very good phone. am in china i have see the phone yesterday very good

  • What a rip off. Iphone design with galaxy s3 specs. Cheap phone

  • officially it will not be available you will hv to buy through online

  • iPhoneish interface but the screen is very good quality adn bright enough. As well as camera and everything whatever it is. You can put any other launcher if you do not like the launcher. But I am even not iPohne user but I liked the phone a lot and this is in my line of buying.

  • Is there any Google play in this phone ? I really want one and I'm an international buyer.

  • Is there any Google play in this phone ? I really want one and I'm an international buyer.

  • Launched in private chain in Israel. Screen looks realy sharp. Won't replace my good old SGII though, Iphonish interface.

  • I have had this phone for more than 1 month,great display,very good camera,audio quality (it has wolfson audio chip.Sound quality is very good(better then iphone 5 but not awesome as sgs3..)battery lasts 1.5 day normal usage with juicedefender is on.i had some drop calls issues before but now i dont have anything.Flyme OS is very nice and eye candy modification and i can say its much better then stock has appdrawer as a default homepage like iphone 5 so you dont have to switch between widgets or apps which is very handy.Meizu has own its appcenter where you can download themes and modifications but sadly only chinese users can buy paid apps.FlymeOS supports rooting by itself!! There is 2 problems which bothers me very much, 1-Phone gets extremely hot during recharging and if wifi and display is on during recharges,you cannot hold it 2-is data transfer speed from pc to the phone thru usb cable.when copying files from pc to phone,copy speed drops to 0kb and windows 8 disconnects phone,so this makes file transfers fail.i cannot transfer anytthing using pc.i have mac which it works fine with so but on the mac transfer speeds is not sometimes reach 20mb/s but sometimes drop to 0kb and holds it there for 1 min.i think this problem is only on this phone not other meizu mx2 sets.Anyway,if i havent had 2nd issue,i would be extremely happy with this phone.Now i am jsut happy

  • This phone thinner And a bit lighter shoul be a Winner !!!

  • good phone!

  • I've had this phone for 2 months and never had this problem. Strange. Dial *#*#6961#*#* in stock dialer and in Settings-Accessibility you will see Apps, Battery, Developer options (more options). There you'll see Stay awake, see if that's the problem. Really dunno dude, please describe how this behaviour evolved over time.

  • that is its history issue..

  • WHY can't i use the MX2 during charging of the battery? Can anyone here know? Aside from the above complaint, the MEIZU MX2 is a great smartphone at a realistic price.

  • wow i got may mx2 .......... its faster and better and affordable..

  • i am waiting for my mx2 , i ordered it 2 week ago ....

  • awful network options

  • Just one little problem... It's dualband :/ I think that no one makes dualband anymore, so besides that it's perfect to me. (maybe a sd card would be interesting too)

  • I have one, and live in Switzerland. I did not tried long time yet but it's a solid product it feels like an iPhone in my hands. For what I tried it's like a fusion between iphone and android, keeping the good design from Apple and having the awesomeness of the Android.

  • it's your opinion

  • If it runs on Android it runs on Android, secondly what phone doesn't look like an iPhone? Your not saying Apple never tried to sue Samsung or LG over the design despite the fact that IPhone uses Samsung chipsets and LG digitization? It's a quad core so gamers/developers, depending on their stillsets shouldn't have problems

  • okay normally i don't say anything looks like an iPhone. But c'mon really??? I had to take a double look just to make sure it wasn't an iPhone. The entire front display looks like something straight from apple themselves. I know apple design of there phone is not originally theirs but this is just funny looking. Meizu copy a design of one of worst looking phones of all time. Congrats :D

  • The only thing good on the iPhone is the design

  • It would be better if they went with Exynos their new chip has no support for games and developers.

  • Confirmed by user... 3G at 850 / 900 mhz are supported... Same as Meizu MX...

  • hi, what is the location of the meizu store youve been.thnx

  • @ Bart: Really if the MX2 is actually quad-band GSM+ 3G then I think someone at Meizu's marketing department should really be losing their head right about now. Particularly at their Hong Kong store where they get visitors from all over the world it would just make more sense to publish the phone being quad-band if it really is. I was there, ready to buy, at the cashier counter ready to pay when I saw on the leaflet it was only dual-band GSM, apologized for changing my mind since they were all ready entering my information in the system, and walked out. I still want one, but now I have a SG3 in my pocket. Meizu might just have to wait to release the MX3 to get my money now. This is a bigger shame than had if the phone had actually really only been dual-band!

  • Guys, it actually supports the same bands as the Meizu MX. So no worries about that.

  • It support various 3G bands, not just 2100. It works with all carriers in Thailand and they user different bands. So don't worry about using it outside China.

  • it's a nice phone but 4.4" :( , if it was 4.8" or higher, then it wud be like 1 of the best :D

  • Played with this phone at the Meizu store in Hong Kong the other day, very impressed: excellent screen, snappy OS, good camera, great build quality and only 2999 HKD for the 16gb version while other similar spec'ed phones from Samsung and HTC are still 3800-4000+ HKD. However, the deal breaker is not the battery (only 1800 maH but I can live with that), it's actually the fact that the phone only has 2 x GSM bands and 1 x 3G band. While you're in the store drooling over the demo models and very attractive price points its so easy to overlook this fact and I'm surprised nobody else on this board has mentioned it. Its such a shame its not a world phone because I really wanted to buy one.

  • Beware of this phone, GSM ability is limited (Dualband only) and 3G is 2100 Mhz only!! Which means it is likely to not be able to work with your carrier

  • Meizu MX2 worldwide shipping now available!!

  • hey

  • got one from liaow. had for two days. pretty good phone. nothing to compare it to sorry and been busy. it is very fast. can heat up slightly. using it to post this :p

  • meizu didn't just make apple look bad they over did the hot looks.this looks some much better then all the iPhone i seen so far and this is an android device,nice job Google for owning android and nice job meizu for making something that looks better then the iPhone like all other companys

  • Hey.Guys.Has anyone got one yet?? Any feedback, something?

  • it look iPhone but the OS is android damn

  • Ooh, yeah... but Note2 has 5.5" display, not 4.4"!

  • 1800 mAh Battery....compared to Galaxy Note 2 (3100 mAh) or Droid DNA (2250 mAh) outclassed....poor battery life

  • you cna buy it on now

  • when can we expect this mobile in India?

  • a must have phone during 2013

  • Meizu might be the only serious mobile maker in China, others like Huawei, zte, xiaomi, lenovo etc. just crap

  • when you put mx2 and iphone5 together, u will find iphone5 looks crap. check here:

  • Battery kinda poor for a very fast quadcore chip.. and not replaceable.

  • yes meizu UI called flyme has been updated to 2.0

  • Does meizu provide updates for their products? or huawei? I know that xiaomi does but I really wish to know if meizu and huawei provide updates (similar speed to xiaomi? or samsung? I certainly hope not like lg). Please answer if anyone knows.

  • is this already available in the philippines ?

  • this is not called "copycat" to buy components from other brands. i repeat: b u y

  • Well, good thing I don't use SD cards or FM radio. They play crap music on the radio anyway.

  • Apple is a copy cat gets chips from samsung, display from LG and calls other copy cat!

  • It's so cool. i like it! but i don;t have money to buy this.

  • copycat the phone looks like a iphone 5 there gonna be another law sue maybe they are jellous of apple

  • wow apple eater

  • An iphone wannabe must inherit all the iphone's prons and especially cons. Does the iphone have a microsd card slot? No. So does the wannabe. Does the iphone have a radio fm antenna? No. So does the wannabe. It's simple logic. If somebody wants to copy the iphone, it's mandatory to copy all the cons of the iphone. Have a good day.

  • No sd card slot available

  • It's from Zhuhai, China. Meizu is a very special digital device manufacturer in China, where there are so many copycats. You can try a Meizu product to feel their design and concentration.

  • get more info from the official site:

  • looks like an iphone5...

  • I see an iphone with an android background and a poor battery life device

  • pooooooorrrr battery

  • Wannabe iphone? Huh? :D

  • cool design .but where did the microSD slot go ?

  • it looks better and performs better than any iPhone. Problem Apple?

  • Battery sucks for the screen size

  • looks like we're gonna be seeing another law suit from Sue Happy apple inc nice design by the way

  • I wonder the same thing...

  • just looking cool

  • Why oh Why? Where are you go microSD? Why you leave me? I can live without you? :( :/

  • honolulu

  • I see some law suit coming up! :-)

  • Pls where can i buy the meizu phone.any retailer in africa,Especially nigeria

  • Wonder when Apple will sue them :) Nice phone btw

  • Why does people say that this is an iPhone knock off? What makes all the Samsung and LG phones so much more original than this? Stop hating on Meizu. They did a tremendous work on both design and specifications.

  • �310 so cheap

  • i can hear the phone scream "i wanna look like the iPhone"

  • For Meizu MX2 , its a very nice phone i like it , but it should be released in India too.. & i am thinking for Micromax to release an Android Smartphone same as like Meizu MX2 (with the same body & edge + curve , but only there should be the difference on their button) --

  • Hello friends! I just see this phone!, may u tell me where does this phone come from?

  • Heey guuys...look what I found Just copy the link and google it, then use "translate this page" The benchmarks look strange, 16000 on Antutu is hell of a lot, but the others have even higher scores, IDK... The screen looks gorges, waaay better than MX Stay tuned :D

  • Quad core 1.6 ghz as fast as galaxy note2 . I phone is nothing bad dual core 1.2 ghz Apple never knew creating phones

  • Quad core 1.6 ghz as fast as galaxy note2 . I phone is nothing bad dual core 1.2 ghz Apple never knew creating phones

  • Thank you very much for your reply ^_^ ! Yes, I agree, there are lot of people who I don't understand with their complains! Iphonish or not, everybody should agree that this phone looks brilliant !!

  • brilliant specs and dimensions! ugly iphone design is the only problem.

  • You can buy Meizu phones through resellers. Among the best is MeizuMXon, who sells the MX phones at pretty nice discounts in batches of five (miniature group buys) and they ship internationally. I really don't get the iPhone clone comments. Hold a Meizu MX in one hand an an iPhone in the other. Show them to others. Now throw in any other rectangular phone with rounded corners and a glassy black front. The only things they have in common are the fact that they're rectangular, have rounded corners, a black facade on the front, and a screen. Their original phone was most definitely a clone, but the MX series has stood on its own merits this past year and looks different enough that mine has never been confused for an Apple phone.

  • What? This is not iPhone 4? How come? (it took me approx 2 minutes to realize it's not, i got no sharp sight)

  • Meizu is dead set on cloning iPhone it seems.

  • benchmarks, hands-on? anyone? What do you think about this? Is the screen bright enough, is the contrast ratio good enough, will the f/2.4 be a pain(narrow view), do you think the otg will work(not like nexus4)? What about availability? Are usually meizu phones lot more available than xiaomi(they are bastards, haven't yet made their phone available even if they announced it in 16 august!!!, just small batches which are bought by other bastards who ask $150-200 more)? I am TIRED of chasing phones I am desperate! Please tell me if usually when meizu says a release date, is the phone really available, open sell I mean, not stupid preorder ? (until now-my comment imported from the news:D) But, besides, the most important thing is availability. Please, meizu owners, how did you managed to get yours? Will it be possible to get one in mid December?? At a NORMAL price (I can, sigh, go up to $450-475 for 16GB).

  • 2G Network GSM 900 / 1800 3G Network HSDPA 2100 Sigh....

  • amazing phone .. wish to be available in middle east..!!

  • Iphone 5s ?!!

  • And apple didn't sue these guys yet :p

  • the meizu spec sheet on their site resembles a lot the iphone 5 spec section.

  • Iphonish design. But over all its awsome.
