Meizu MX3 - User Reviews

  • im using this phone for almost 4 years now :) still runs pretty good with root and hard-resets every half year +- battery is still solid, it didnt get much worse from 2014, it can last one day with no problem :) 4 years without case or glass and still not broken :) and it did fall a lot of times since 2014 only bad thing that i have to use speaker when calling with someone but overall great phone :)

  • Is this the oldest phone to have a 128GB storage option?

  • For 5.0 Lollipop the answer is yes:

  • Great phone, using it for 2 years already. Very clear voice in speakers and on bluetooth. If it only had a little bigger battery).

  • Did this one got any updates for lollipop or would even get a marshmallow?

  • Should I buy samsung galaxy s5 mini or meizu mx3 ??? Pls help

  • What do you think is meizu mx3 useful could you write your opinions

  • To take a screen shot press the power button (top right) and the volume down button (left side) at the same time. This works with most other Androids as well.

  • Hey, i want to ask, how to do Screen SHot? Thanks

  • bad

  • how is the battery

  • Meizu

  • Perfection

  • Absolutely Meizu mx3

  • Absolutely Meizu mx3

  • This device is really good and absolutely worth the price. I've been using it for two months and I am realy happy with my new phone. It looks very beautiful and a lot of people thought that it is an IPhone 6, personally I think that Meizu looks better than Apple products. specifications are just awesome for that money. But I had some troubles with original calendar because days and dates are wrong, so I downloaded another application and now it is ok. I realy like the home button and some functions like to set the time when you want that your phone is turned off and on. Generely it works perferctlly and I think that Meizu is the best phone on sale for this money.

  • Its superb device for that money. I owned before Samsung Note2, crapy Lg, Xperia Z and to be honest Meizu is the best so far. Audio output is realy incredible good, for me on Motorhead headphones music is loud, powerful and reach. Recomend this device for any one without regrets.

  • Superb handset but which is the similar one for this. I can not find out the back pouch for this handset in market in Banglore

  • Got one yesterday!! And it's really amazed me, its so worth it!

  • 1.MX3 2.M2 AQUA Forget about Desire...

  • Awesome device. I 've owned many other "branded" devices like Samsung, HTC... but Meizu surprised me pleasantly. Excellent device for this money. Couldn't buy any better. Highly recommended!

  • What would you recommend Meizu MX3, HTC Desire 610 or Sony Xperia M2 Aqua? :)

  • when will come android 5.0 for meizu mx3

  • I am using this phone for few months now. It works amazing and it's so simple and easy to use. This is absolutely best phone I ever had. It's really fast and camera is great. And Flyme OS is amazing. I reccomend this device.

  • We made few measurements in lab and I saw on my own eyes, that iPhone have much more radiation than other brands...

  • How is the audio output through the headsets?

  • 260 euro in lithuania

  • You should read a manual. You can easily skip back using home button, just put your finger on it and drag it towards the screen and it will take you one step back.....

  • IN FRANCE FOR MEIZU MX3 16 GO its cost 199 EUROS & for 32 GO cost is 249 euros for meizu mx4 start 288 EUROS FOR 16 GO for 32 start 349 euros website is rue du commerce

  • Its on sale in estonia "Klick" for 299�

  • Finally. You can buy it from Estonia. Cheap as hell. This klick shop thing

  • Great phone

  • I m planning to visit China. Pls tell me how to get the set from there?

  • Definitely a great phone. But my major disappointment with this phone is with the home button. Some apps aren't exactly optimized for the single buttoned display. I understand that this isn't exactly their fault, but as what it stands out right now, the small market here in the west isn't really allowing much of app optimization for the Chinese marketed phones (but it's growing). Aside from that, it's a total powerhouse and the overall feel and usage is good too. Really a good buy for the price if you are into a uniquely designed android.

  • Am from Tanzania and i bought this phone from china, its awesome phone. I shifted from galaxy s4 and i have not regreted. Very unique with smooth touch....flyme is android and ios killer! Great job Jack wong

  • I have used my mx3 for ten months, bought as soon it was released. Works great here in Sweden, only thing i miss is 4g/lte. If you are thinking of buying wait for the mx4 instead, specs excellent.

  • Great phone I bought in China for 2000 RMB 32GB works and sounds great on Australias Telstra Aldi 3G(WCDMA)only problem screen in daylight is hard to see.

  • im in canada using wind with meizu mx3 evn if its no stated , it has all bands

  • It has Play Market and Google services preinstalled on international version.

  • i am now using this device ,and swear to the gad ,i like it very much,before i got this phone,i didn't have any interests about android devices cause i think they are too slow ,you can't get a vey good experience on these phones ,but this phone changed my pre-thought and aslo if you use it you will find that meizu has pay a lot of attention on the detail to optimize the flyme syetem.it is very awesome ,strongly recommend this phone

  • Such a joke. According to lab tests. Meizu mx3 give less radiation than apple iphones and ipads.

  • its a good phone . works well . and also can download google play store without routing the device . speed is pretty good .comparing to samsung s4 price vice its pretty good and faster

  • Maybe the cell phone looks good at the first site, but Chinese handsets have more radiation that killing your eyes, so I don't recommend anyone to buy this type of phones, the box is good but when you look inside "K.O" ! Your dead! Don't look at the technology, Look on it's quality! So it's not shame that U.S.A still not created a phone with 128 GB Internal ! Don't be GREEDY about technology and look at any point in it. and remember "Mouth is a Devil's Tool" and GREED KILLS!

  • So Chinese people are able to produce a smart phone with 128 GB of internal storage, and others can not? What a shame.

  • Exynos 5410 Same as samsung galaxy s4

  • what is the cpu?

  • this phone have wolfson audio chip & dirac hd software wow! jus wow! that sound heavenly to me. bow to you meizu!!

  • looks better thn iphone and cost half price :)

  • pleas come to iran.i neeeeeeeed this

  • So this is iPhone 6?

  • Looks same like iphone

  • the new Version

  • i am sorry to say but it will not officially available in USA

  • it's have a review check in all brands.

  • i know you like the phone,you should get it

  • Agreed

  • How come all Meizu's have reviews but none of the Xiaomi's get one? Plss

  • When is the reveiw ready? you posted that it's in the works at least a week ago.

  • Love this because MX3 was advertised as the "world's first 128gb smartphone"! 1. Will Meizu ever sell officially in USA? (They have an English version website, en.meizu.com, but to order it sends you to their Chinese site, no English translation button there, no USD$ option, etc., that I saw). 2. Will the MX3 bands work with any USA pre-paid Sim cards? (T-Mobile, ATT, etc.?) Thank you!

  • I love the specs of this phone except for the frequency coverage. I was hoping for a device that does the AWS Bands because i live in Canada and use WIND . Not sure if i misread but if i did can someone please correct me. Thanks.

  • Meizu is amazing. I had the M8 SE and right now I have a MX Quad-Core. It's nice to see that Meizu managed to move forward and developed devices compareable to Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4. I know that most companies try to compete with Apple but I guess Meizu is on a good way to become a well-known Smartphone manufacturer.

  • the meizu mx3 is a very cool phone i think i would rather have this than an s4

  • As one of the most famous cellphone manufactures in China, Meizu provided one model cellphone every year, similar to Apple. Based on the previous performance and quality, MX3 will be an amazing phone to anyone. Not only the price is just 3/5 of GS4, but also the OS will be more suitable for normal people instead of geek. The only one problem for this cellphone is the customers outside of China will be not easy to purchase it.

  • it is the best phone in china,i like you

  • Hi,friends.To follow the unwritten facts rules and human rights to know,because of avarage quality in performance,design,features and too high prices just for the one brand different versions,I don,t recommend this phone to anybody!!!?I wish the better phones and success for the Meizu as the starter!Thanks factwriting and accepting gsm!Just facts!Thanks for your care!

  • 410$ for 16gb version and up to 650$ for 128 gb version.

  • 2499 chinese yuan.. about 400 USD (after tax)

  • Expected price??
