Meizu MX5 - User Reviews

  • I want to buy a charging pad for this phone. In order for it to work it says my phone must be Qi wireless enabled. Is this model?

  • I want to buy a charging pad for this phone. In order for it to work it says my phone must be Qi wireless enabled. Is this model?

  • I've had this phone for about three years now. I was always very satisfied with it, the memory was more than enough for me. Yesterday it displayed problems for the first time, but after many hours of work - following instructions in forums about flyme UI - I managed to update the flyme version and the phone is mostly working again. After three years of mostly perfect functioning, it went to 24 hours of freezing and crashing every 30 seconds, and now it's been almost fine for 18 hours or so, but did crash three times over that time period. I think it'll have to be retired, but I have been very pleased with it over the time I've had it.

  • Dear, I am using last 2 year Meizu MX 5. This phone specification and quality are very good. I am facing last 2 days screen lock is open with touch but whenever i am open wallpaper application, call logs, music application is not open. so i am humble requested to you, to solve my query.

  • iam also having same problem hope flyme team should resove thus issue ?

  • The biggest mistake I made, after two years of using it with ocassional problems (after one of software updates front camera stopped working, glitches, etc.) it got worse first it blocked all of google app, i tried to fix that, but i couldn't, after that SMS flow stopped, now I can use it just like old fashioned phone, to call and answer calls.

  • Dear nametoocomplicated, I'm still using the Meizu MX5 as of now, It has a working time of over 2 years now, It's not scratched, the screen works perfectly, hell It's battery still holds a long time with full use. I'm a Technician so I guess It's gonna work with no problems in the right hands, sorry your mom couldn't be satisfied with the camera lens durability. U would advise to look up Nokia 3310 for her (for some this newer type of technology is just not durable enough)

  • Do the quality match the price when you buy it new.After to years if using this phone iam going to admit , that was a good choice . The phone andels verois application at time never goes in a gap or get blocked the best ever experience of android version. Flyme Os is the best opponent to IOS. The best battery endurance. Cammera quality is bad in all Situations it was a delusion , as I was accpecting from a Sony sensor a higher Standard. The Infrared is unsable, the flash is good.The Language options are limited. The materials cover are good. The Display is a good Amoled . This phone is super for gps signal, wifi super utms ,4g signal super . The fingerprint sensor and the navgation button in one is a great Simple thing .After i had the display burntout with alcoohol. I change it and the result even better it works as it was working in first days i bought it .

  • you have shortcircuit.

  • The battery is most likely dying. I had the same issue with my old LG Optimus G where the battery was non-removable, like this this one. I'm afraid you'll either have to take it to a service shop to have the battery changed or....well, it's time to buy a new phone.

  • Hello, I have this phone for almost 2 years now. The last 2 months I'm facing this issue : the phone shuts down by itself and in order to turn it on you have to plug into the charger otherwise it doesn't turns on. Does anyone knows why this thing happens. It's very annoying

  • Wonderful hardware and build quality. The camera is excellent in the sunlight but quite poor in low light. Came with Android 5.1 and will never have an Android update.

  • i would buy a mazda mx5 :D

  • please help, my meizu mx5 is globelocked, and im a smart user. Anyone knows how to unlock?

  • Using it for for some time now, more than a year. For the price can't be better. Never had a problem. When I bought it, first what I installed was Nova launcher so I'm using it as any other Android phone. Good quality, good camera, very fast. Long story short would recommend. Also looks like 800 $ phone, not as I paid it.

  • My MX5 had been updated with fly 5 but playstore can't download anyTing . Why?

  • I updated flyme in my meizu mx5 and trying to restart but never restarted anymore.somebody can tell me watch l Hv to do now.

  • Good phone

  • ya i have also this problem and laser auto focus also easily get scratched.

  • What can i do the missing my phone locking password?MD ...MX 5

  • Yo guys,with one is better meizu mx4 pro or meizu mx5?And why? Thx...

  • Then you got a fake mx5.

  • good phone

  • Hello. I have upgraded the mobile and all applications were lost. You know how I can download them again?

  • why? yr one broken?

  • nah it isnt like that, yes i admit that i do not own mx5 but, i do own m2 note which is good just like other meizu phones. they always offer you to install google services on hot apps notification, and if they dont offer then you can also open hot apps and install google installer which helps alot. btw if you use the phone a lot, you could like the flyme aswell, since it is lag free and it doesnt freeze at all

  • Gorilla glass... bolshit!!!

  • I am using MX 5 for more than a year now and here is my review. The phone itself is amazing. Camera is great, processor is just perfect, i can run anything with no lag or bad fps, display and sound are also good. The phone for its price is really good. But the problem is Flyme (android based but slightly modified platform). The flyme itself is good, it runs very smoothly but the problem is that meizu is focusing only on chinese market and they actually stopped having international and chinse version of flyme (atm its only so called "global" version which is basicly chinese, since they started adding chinese apps so i haven't upgrade flyme in about half a year now). Also with every update they broke something (snapchat, messenger...) and they need months to fix a tiny problem. And for the end, in recent updates they removed google mobile services (playstore, gmail...) and people have loads of problems not being able to install google from meizu's app store.

  • Memory is lesser

  • Its a really good phone with its low price.

  • battery life is laughable

  • This mobile is gio sim no sport

  • one of the best phones I have ever had. camera quality is best compared to high brands like samsung, lg and others, also no issues in playing high end games. it is a real beast in mobile phones. i am using it now for more than a year

  • Own this phone for about 45 days - few days ago the screen started to press randomly everywhere on the screen at once as I unlock it, it is impossible to make a call, or to do anything else. Now I am on GsmArena to look-for another phone - but this time definitely NOT mEIZU.

  • I have used this phone for more than 8 months. Heres my review on this Pros 1. Excellent display. You can compare it with any high end phones. probably others will get stunt seeing this one. 2. Sound is very loud and clear. 3. Premium metal build. Design is superb 4. Flyme UI is fast 5. Flyme store provides nice themes & wallpapers like that in mi phones 6. Sensor is good on this Cons 1. Battery drains fast on using camera & internet. Lasts for just 15-16 hours on heavy usage 2. Contacts seems missing at times. Mails get stuck at times My final take on this if you are plainning a brand change try this one. You wont be disappointed at all. For more details on this mail me @ [email protected]

  • Worst phone. I am regretting now. Meizu says it has used gorilla glass 3 on camera lens but despite keeping it with all the care, the camera lens is easily scratched. I am totally dissatisfied with this phone especially due to camera lens issue.

  • Try solution on below link, use translate Turkish To English. I think it is hardware problem.

  • No unbutnu OS phones are listed in the sites.. also the ubuntu OS as searchable option in the phone finder

  • Hey, Meizu mx5 can update 6.0 marshmallo android and flyme os?

  • Hey, Mx5 can update 6.0 marshmallow android and flyme os?

  • I watched reviewof meizu note..it was lagging even on subway surfers

  • same specs, what???

  • Yep meizu mx 5 is more good than mx 4. Because you can use update flymes os

  • shit phone, led screen stopped working after a couple months of use had an mx4 before, touch screen stopped working after a couple months both phones get very glitchy very quickly

  • yes this is gaming phone and im 100% its better than samsung s7

  • mx5, mx4 and mx4 pro are worse than mx5, mx5 is half the price of samsung galaxy s7 and its almost same specs with it, so mx5 may be one of best choices for a gamer :)

  • thats true and i really want to buy this phone :D samsung and iphone and HTC are just same as this one but double the price of this, of course samsung galaxy s7 has better specs than this one but they arent that much better ( s7 speed = 2.3 ghz, mx5 speed = 2.2 ghz ) so i think this phone is perfect for gaming right ? :)

  • I have this phone for more than 4 months and I can say that it is a real value deal. Battery life is amazing and the processor is doing just fine. No problems with the camera either. Do not I would never go again for Samsung, HTC or iphone. They are just too expensive and not much better than this phone. Be smart and save your money!

  • i want to install google device policy in meizu m2 but could not able to do whether fixing is there in the latest version

  • Yes

  • what is better meizu mx4 or mx5?

  • Hello, I have meizu mx3 and am thinking about buying this phone. But some aplications on my meizu mx3 dont work, like facebook. Does everything work on meizu mx5?

  • hi gys i wanna know if i can play high end games in this smartphone moreover hows the camera quality of this smartphone and net surfing experience pls suggest viz i wanna go for it thanks in advance.

  • gys pls tell me is this a gaming fone coz i play lots of games and want a mobile fone on the way for gaming and net surfing and to click good pics pls tell about this fone thanks in advance.

  • C'mon meizu. Why dont you place sd slot ?? We wait these features from you :sd slot on all phones , infrared port,nfc

  • i have a Samsung G Note 4 and i think in change for other smartphone no Samsung, i think about the Xiaomi Mi5 :D

  • I have that device for a while and I got to say— I'm pleasantly surprised. It has a premium build nd build materials, it's performance is very snappy— it dose not need to keep up to me even in heaviest of tasks, and I don't have to keep up to it. The camera produces fantastic shots and it is also descent in low light. Battery life also wasn't a problem as I get in the month I use this phone a full day of heavy use with at least 4 hours of screen on time. I personaly like the software experience in it. It is really similar to iOS and it performes very snappy overall. I an sure that if you want a nice overall experience for an affordable price, this is the best way to go. The professional reviewers were really rough with that for no good reason. I recommend you to take that device. You won't be disappointed.

  • battery endurance, mx4- 89 hrs at 3100 mAh battery mx4 pro- 67 hrs at 3350 mAh battery mx5- 55 hrs at 3150 mAh battery everybody else works on increasing the battery life....

  • good stuff! love this smartphone! very faster and about the life of battery is normal... any smatphone is the same with life of battery...so go on! love meizu! :)

  • awesome love it !!

  • Same problem here, too! (Main microphone seems defective!) My brother had bought a meizu mx5 from aliexpress lately but it has a major problem. When he's making a call nobody can hear him at all, but if he turns the speaker on, it's possible. And if we use a sound recorder app there's no problem. As a result, I think that the main (call) microphone is defective but the second noise reduction microphone is OK. I wanted to update the Flyme OS from 4.5.4.1I to a newer one but couldn't manage. It gives "Firmware corrupted" error. I guess this is a China version phone and the seller installed this "international" Flyme version to it, most probably (It's rooted already, as well). I will try to install a newer Chinese (A) version of Flyme, but I don't think that this will solve the microphone problem, it's probably hardware related. After that i will try to find a way to use the 2. microphone as the main microphone for phone calls. I don't know if it's possible or not, but i have a little hope. Maybe swapping the 2 microphones is possible with a script or changing some codes in system, who knows. This phone is stylish and good enough for a mediocre use, but it's totally a crap with a major microphone problem unfortunately. I tried to explain the problem in detail, to inform other users also. And please advise if you have some opinions about this problem.

  • Love it

  • Love it

  • Unfortunatelly, this smartphone is lookig good only on the paper. The worst side of Meizu mx5 is screen - not even similar to Samsung or other branded smartphones. Battery every day is weaker and weaker. Many problems with GPS and apps compatibility. Camera is below average, flashlight literally does't exist, it's just a little bright dot. Acceptable for gaming or simple everyday purposes. Unacceptable for price. Would't reccomend. It's not worth of the money. Most of the functions known from the Korean smartphones are in chinese. Voice browsers, text prediction etc...

  • No sd slot . i think metal is better than this.. I talk to meizu: use sd card on your all phones...

  • Where we can buy product in Hong Kong?

  • I have been using this phone for the last three month. software performance is good; however, battery performance is gradually declining and becoming poorer and poorer day after another.

  • For every one that have a problems with internet you have change the ROM from U version to G or I (international).

  • i got this mx5 from snapdeal days back when i try to manually update it to flyme 5 it says firmware curropt its a global version... what to do can anyone help me out please

  • internet not working properly. I am unable to update my Meizu MX5 for last three months

  • phone not working in kenya

  • no IR on mx5. but have laser to only focus camera.

  • buy a cheap back cover to protect camera glass from getting scratched.

  • Flyme os 5 (stable) upgrade fix most of problems. upgrade not available with updater app in Indian version,you have to download it and manually apply.here is the change log The main wifi problem and fingerprint detection problem while charging is fixed.now Indian version can be easily rooted.

  • On the base of price vs performance mx5>mi5.

  • should I buy this phone

  • Don't think to buy meizu mx5...I have most bad experience with it...not full India...much much Chinese language intermixing.. And too toooooo slipy... Once pull down directly screen break and the price of screen is 8599...+500 worker charges...now it's upon you..which side you wanna to gooo..

  • hi I need to choose between this 2 phones: Meizu MX5 OnePlus X Can you help me decide? What do you think?

  • Where can i activate this device?

  • I don't know which one is better. But, if you want performance, go with Mi 5

  • Go for meizu Mx5 . I m using this phone. I feel awesome till now.. Money velue mobile !!!

  • I am very confused right now. I have read the specs, and both phones are above average, with high-end specs and everything, and both have good looks.. So, which is better? Xiaomi Mi5 or Meizu MX5? Your opinion is GREATLY appreciated..

  • Same here. One fine morning, the mobile screen did not come up and horizontal lines started coming up. (if at all it boots). Its just 3 months and used very carefully. The phone as sent to their main Chennai Service Center. Its been 10 days. No one picks the phone and no reply over email. Now, I am using my Note 1 (GT-N7000) with a replaced battery for now. (still works perfect after all these years...little slow.) Its been a very big mistake to go after these chinese brands. Their phones are real VFM as long as they work. Once any issue comes up : Its a lesson-learnt scenario and we will fall back to reputed and established brands.

  • thank you.

  • As per the review, some people complains abt this phone as it creates lot many more problems.. I jus wanna knw whether fly os updates fixes dose bugs... If so what problems were fixed and what problems ain't fixed yet !!! Also pls inform where this phone is available in 32/64 gb in India ???

  • I would have bought this phone in a minute flat if it had the MX4's 1152 x 1920 or MX3's 1080 x 1800 screen. Those unusual resolutions really set the previous two in the series apart and i have owned them both. As it is this new MX5 is just another mid-high range Chinese phone with a good camera.

  • I bought this phone about 3 months ago, and I'm super happy with it so far. I only got the 16gb version, which gave me about 13 or so gb of free space. It's enough for me, but might not be for some other people. It's light, cheap, takes great pictures, has great sound from the speakers, and is fast. The fingerprint scanner works really well too. It's basically like an iPhone 6 but a third of the price. I've heard some people complain that Chinese brand phones really slow down after half a year or so, so I guess I have to wait and see whether this one will keep me happy for a long time or not, but I'm VERY happy with my purchase so far. Thanks to this website for helping me find it!

  • wath should I buy the 32 GB or the 16 GB ? How much free space have the 16 GB and how much MB dose a maximum resolution photo have? It will appear Android 6.1 for this phone ?

  • DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE Hello guyz i made this account on gsmarena to share my problem with this phone i purchased this device for my mother she is more in using it for photographs i can manage storage heat n other problems but the biggest blunder the meizu has done is its Designing department that designed it looks beautiful but practicaly all its specs are trash they look good on paper though so the prob was its 20mp camera take shit images for first 2 months the images will be good but after that its lens start getting scratches the cause of scratches is the design blunder when u keep ur device on flat surface the lens module takes all the burden n it gets scratches over tym. So my friends i again want to warn u all dont spend ur hard earned money on this trash better keep urself away from these trashs even my old lava 504q served me well n ty for reading this essay.

  • s

  • What is the GPU here is it mp4 like in meizu mx4?

  • Hi, Any budy plz confirm IR remote works with meizu Mx5?

  • no expandable memory no optical image stabilization for 20mp camera no ir blaster no MHL for tv support notification area shows only one colour no night mode in camera app

  • Mx5 having a IR blaster

  • antutu of my mx5 is 56465 after i update to 5.0 flyme

  • Same here brother I tried contacting the customer service and was asked to contact the service center. The service center does not have spare parts and when asked about availability they said it could take 12 days and not they are not even sure if the parts would be available after that.

  • waiting

  • How much free space does the 16 gig version has

  • Worst phone and worst customer service...for last 18 days they have not resolved my issue...my mobile is with them and they are saying that it will take more 30 days for motherboard replacement...i want full refund...better go for lenovo,xiaomi or motorola..

  • I have problems when I get a call and they can't here me so good any solution for it

  • Does this support encryption?

  • Hi , I have little mechanic problem with mx5. I cant open slot for sim cards. I put the pin in hole and nothing happens.Sim slot doesn´t come out. Pls can someone help me ?

  • don't do it the hard way like I did. if you need google service, simply go the the installed app store and search for google installer. Install the google installer and then install any google apps. That is it, no need to root the phone or complicated software. to my disappointment, It does not have casting.

  • I have been using MX5 from October. At first, I was able to use 2-sim at the same time. Don't know what happened I wasn't able to use the second one after a while. So I left it, and decided I can live with that. But today phone's screen went off out of nowhere. No physical damage. Sometimes it gets back, and sometimes a white, or sometimes orange screen comes. I heard the phone's starting sound but no vision. Just those screen I mentioned. I assure you there wasn't any physical damage. In conclusion, 1. Problem with 2nd SIM card after a while. Not working at all 2. White screen came on. Cannot use the phone anymore. 3. There is not any online help that you can use to repair your phone without sending back to China. There is but insufficient. 4. Some apps are in Chinese and you cannot uninstall them. (Keyboard, Weather, Maps, App center, Music player, Voice and etc.). Really annoying. 5. Sometimes finger scanner doesn't recognize 6. Battery life only last for one day even with not an extensive use. But charging is really fast 7. Has heating problem. It is like on fire while charging. Gets hot really fast when play game. After all, PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS BUGGY PHONE. I AM WRITING THIS BECAUSE I DON'T WANT YOU MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID.

  • The apps are in chinese because they have a chinese version of "Flyme", in chinese version you don't have google play also. I also had a problem when i got my phone that flyme was in Chinese. I fixed that with installing international version of flyme(i just downloaded it from flyme site). After that all my problems were fixed and till now i didn't have any problems with the phone.

  • Both phones are great. I am a MX5 user and the phone is just great. No app is in chinese except some portions of the security app. The storage is the only problem here but i can easily manage using an otg. But if you have bit of extra money Honor 7 is a great buy. My frnd has honor and its good too. The sd card expansion is a plus point. However gaming is excellent on the mx5, tried lots of hd games i.e. asphalt 8, implosion, godfire, gta etc.. All work exceptionally good. No matter what phone you pickup, both are great. If storage is not the problem mx5 is a beast otherwise go for Honor 7.

  • Totally,Fly me interface i including to much problems in programming.My friend bring a Meizu MX4 as a gift for me last year.The camera quality is so good,touch and display is good too.but after i imported my contacts and other information in this phone,contacts and call history found problems.When i was in need of my contacts,it was hanging ...i ended all tasks when hanging,the contacts and call history was loading after 5 - 10 minutes,after 6 month Torture,i have broken this phone for ever ...i never suggest Chinese phones to any one.The interface and hardware parameters are so cute,but in working,they are useless ...

  • I recommend it for the camera and audio quality

  • This phone is good but this phone battary backup very low but phone this ram and storge very good but price is high

  • Bro,if you have no budget problem than go for MX5,dual sim slowing the phone is a MYTH,I have had phones with dual sim but never felt slowing of the OS or Phone

  • Great phone But takes time to get use to it came with lots of Chinese apps and some English, the manual was in Chinese, you would have to do some work on your own to get it Just right. It is a hi quality smart phone and fast .

  • Great phone. I switched from iphone and it was easy to adapt. However there's a couple of issues: 1. The screen regularly wakes up while the phone is charging (although screen is locked). It's not push notifications - the screen just wakes up consistently. 2. I had an issue that the apps inside the folders just popped out of them out of a sudden and got shattered all over the screens. It was really annoying I had to re-arrange them one by one.

  • Last noght I updated my MX5 with Flyme OS 5.1 (A) from 4.5 (A). The UI in general has become even more beautiful (although I am using NOVA launcher). I noticed the contacts sync problem has gone, battery life significantly improved, auto-brightness now works. Everything seem to be working perfectly and faster as well. :)

  • Its a great phone. I m using mx5 from last 1 month .the camera both front amd rear are awsome(and works perfectly very good in night)m a photographer thou,and have many cool functions in camera . Screen is outstanding. Never heats up, and has a good battery life.

  • What is the real intern memory? I'm disappointed because the mx5 don't have microSD card slot... The 16Gb are sufficient for normal applications and camera photos ? Thanks

  • Does meizu mx5 supports otg below 80% charge?

  • Please don't promote another silly cellphones. Meizu is the best. Hail Meizu, XOXO.

  • I'm a photographer and I recommend it over any other phone especially within its price range. you have to double the money to get noticably better results. Camera (back) 8/10 (great dynamic range, resolution, sharpness, noise handling and very fast focusing, but lacking OIS and at f/2.2 not the brightest results. Mount it on a tripod and you can get the best long exposures you could imagine) Camera (front) 6/10 (nothing special about it, nothing bad about it either average in every aspect)

  • Great Value for Money! Build quality 9/10 (gorilla glass 4 maybe!? a big plus that it doesn't feel like a 5.5" brick) Screen 8/10 (could have been brighter and QHD and i dont care about the latter) Sound 8/10 (very loud, not the best, but very good quality. Stereo speakers would have been nice) Camera (back) 8/10 (great dynamic range, resolution, sharpness, noise handling and very fast focusing, but lacking OIS and at f/2.2 not the brightest results. Mount it on a tripod and you can get the best long exposures you could imagine) Camera (front) 6/10 (nothing special about it, nothing bad about it either average in every aspect) Preformance 8/10 (Ram is enough for everything, CPU too. Graphics performance is the only thing that lowers the score which still poses no problems or lag. In real life use the phone is on the fast lane with just slight delay in some demanding apps compared to the best 4-5 phones out there) OS 9/10 (Flyme os is excellent and very ergonomic but different from other android skins, so it may take time to get used to) Battery 9/10 (makes it through the day with very heavy use, two days with average use and charges fully in a hour or so from around 25% that i usually start charging it)

  • Hello, the camera is really impressive actually. It has extremely good dynamic range it handles noise very efficiently and the manual mode is good (could hve been better but still). The fingerprint scanner is the fastest i've seen and by adding multiple fingerprints you can unlock with every finger you can scan while having (slightly) wet fingers and solve this problem. I don't know how accurate the results may be then or if some security will be compromised.

  • go to aptoide.com download aptoide app its better

  • Hi guys, does meizu mx5 has Infrared Port(IR blaster)? Thank you!

  • does meizu mx5 has infrared port(IR Blaster)?

  • guys u didnt see that camera is awesome.just adjust the brightness contrast and color temp. And watch the magic happen.

  • Why google play cant install....plz help.......plzplzplz....

  • The phone itself is really nice, good quality. Works very smooth and fast, the FHD amoled screen is beautiful and gaming performance is also excellent. Fingerprint recognition Works 90%of the time for the first try the rest for the second usually (if your hands are not wet) . Only problem is the camera, which is very bad quality. I had a Samsung note 2 with 8mp camera before this and i think that made better pictures. For me its not so important but for others might be. The battery is decent, last a little longer than my note, the mCharge is awesome, finally a phone charges very fast even if I'm using it heavily. I think it worth the money.

  • If you are still looking to buy this Meizu MX5, you should also take a look at the LeTV Le One Pro! It is around 300GBP at reputable online stores and has better hardware than the MX5 Pro. It also has a thin bezel and full metal body - that doesn't looks like a iPhone 6 clone.

  • No expansion of space via mem. Card ,thats really disappointing

  • Thanks!!

  • Wich modle head phone purchase to mx5 phone

  • Bro,does MX5 support USB OTG (on the go)? If yes,then can i directly plug an OTG supported pendrive to MX5? Plz,reply me

  • Ladies and gents, Looking for a phone under 300 USD, Galaxy A5 or MX5? I am living in Switzerland, I dont play much games on my phone (currently Xperia Z1 Compact) but I do often use the camera. Any European users of MX5? is it worth all the troubles bringing this phone to Europe (i have a friend in Shanghai that can purchase it for me). Kind regards

  • yes you can plug OTG and use it..its working fine after new update

  • After updating with new firmware 4.5.2.7I now the bug has been fixed while connecting OTG, earlier it was diconnected after 30 sec now its working fine..i am using this phone from last 2 days

  • LOL.....are you purchasing vegetables?? 12000 INR or LESS?? LESS?? Seriously? Why don't you buy it for free then? Even Moto g is costlier than your expectation!!!! Be realistic mate!!!

  • yes the international version support GSM 850mhz.

  • yes naheed

  • Last week I purchased MEIZU MX5. Camera is not good, its like 3MP camera, and am using 5min phone will be very heat. can some one tel me is there any chances to change camera setting or any else option?

  • yes the international version support GSM 850mhz.

  • yes it does but a little buggy right now. disconnects after 30 sec if the phone battery is bellow 80%. will be fixed in next firmware i guess.

  • Please can owner of the MX5 tell me if it support 3G 850MHZ?

  • But even one plus two 16 gb has 3gb ram whereas the 64gb variant of one plus two has a 4gb ram so this should be right!

  • If it supports USB OTG,then can i directly plug an OTG supported pendrive to MX5?

  • Does it have IR Blaster??????

  • yes it does.

  • it got released in china in july. i have the chinese model dude.

  • well its a decent phone for the price but oneplus 2 is a great. mx5 won't disappoint u as well

  • Hi alam,does MX5 support USB OTG(on the go)?

  • So you are using it from last 10 days whereas device is launched on 26th ! How come you started using it before sell on snapdeal?

  • I saw your comments. May I buy it?its good?

  • very gd quality

  • i didn't get any headset because i have the Chinese version. using Remax RM701 headset and the sound quality is quite decent however keep your expectations low because mx5 doesn't have any dedicated sound chip.

  • Hi Alam, what about audio quality of this phone. Have you checked that. have you got ear phone with this if yes then what about the quality of ear phone?

  • Hi, thanks for the analysis. Suppose that the firmware is international. Still, is there yet Chinese language in some apps?

  • i have been using this phone for almost 10 days now so here's a short review. 1: Battery life is awesome. can last a whole day with heavy usage . 2: Camera is nice but am not a cam geek . 3: 2G 3G and 4G networks are working fine 4: Phones heats up a bit during charging from 0-60%, i think the phone then turns on trickle charging after 60% therefore charging become a bit slower. One complete charge takes almost 1.5 hours. 5: UI is cool but limited. built in security app is awesome. doesn't let any app use any function without your permission . 6: Build quality is great. 7: Finger print scanner works like a breeze. 8: Screen is fantastic. 9: you guys ask anything and i will answer it here.

  • NO IR blaster to device ,plz remove it from specification

  • Ya 16 gb is really very low memory for 3gb ram smartphone Minimum must be 32 gb

  • This IPS is not your regular IPS, and this IPS has been proven to be better than Super Amoled.

  • Please check this out:

  • Why or why do such flagship devices come with fixed 16 GB memory with no scope of expansion. 16 GB is woefully inadequate for anyone who wants a lot of music and videos on the device. 32 GB should be the minimum on such devices or keep 16 GB but add a memory card. Otherwise full marks for the AMOLED screen, good processor, ram and design.

  • Frankly it has sufficient memory and really doesn't need a ext SD card which can get corrupted.

  • They switched to AMOLED because AMILED is better than IPS.

  • lol you are comparing super amoled with ips lcd.ha ha ha ha first check what is amoled and what is lcd.

  • Make your own phone smartass

  • that's a dream mobile we want today. thumbs up :)

  • Is there any heating?

  • Everything else is good except for Super Amoled. Chinese customers have been complaining about the pentile matrix issue on their display. Even the Meizu MX4 have better display than the MX5. I don't know why they switch to Super Amoled.

  • it should hv battery of 5000 mah , expandable memory & low sar than 0.40 & uhd display & sony camera, water proof, air gesture, front camera should be fhd 8mp, os should be lollipop cynogen, no heating issue, 3yr warranty, good loud sound to be the best phone ever i think elaphone p8000 & p9000 is better than this one PRICE SHOULD BE RS.12000 INR OR LESS so my rating should be 7.5 out of 10

  • No sd slot, no removable battery and even worst only up to 64gb is available and no 128gb version. And no negative comments about it too. Nice.

  • yes, it has gorilla glass. for more info, visit

  • Install this firmware on your phone:

  • This phone has no FM but im a damn lover of it !! is there any option to hear FM offline in meizu mx5 !! if so i will book it on 1st sale in india :)

  • My Mx5 just work with 2G (Edge) someone now how to fix it?

  • does it have a gorilla glass protection on the screen ?

  • phone is ok but comany new indian pepole low price

  • The international ROM kan be found and downloaded here: I installed it today, and it made a world of differense when it comes to frequencies available etc.

  • Regarding heat issue you may take a look at this video: youtu.be/9VqT1CzE-M4 I will post another video on battery very soon.

  • Thanks Bhai ... Can you give me an update regarding the battery and heating thing ... !?

  • i still have to get my phone :-( will reach on aug 20

  • I wonder I can't post any link I guess! BTW, you can use google chrome and visit meizu chinese website and translate to English. Then go to firmware section and download public version of the firmware. Public or internation version rom contains A at the end of the version Code. Chinese version contains C. Let me know if you need any other support.

  • Camera sensor the same as on MX4?

  • Hey Murad From where did you download the international ROM? I just received mine and I am very impressed so far but any feedback from me is irrelevant since I just received the phone few hours earlier.

  • No problem vai! I have no idea about gearbest but you may order from aliexpress. My phone is chinese version but I installed International version's ROM on which 3g works perfectly. Let me know if you face any issue :)

  • I'm 85% satisfied with the camera quality, Camera is not outstanding but good enough to compete with high end mobiles!! :) Sound quality is perfect :) Pretty Loud so you won't miss any call for sure. Although little lack of bass other than that no complain :)

  • Thanks a lot Bhai ... How's this gearbest.com site ? Does your friend has the unlocked version ?? @ someone , camera is extremely good , don't worry about that , worry about the heating issue and the battery backup !...

  • Hi, Did you test the camera. How is it working? And also the resolution/sound quality

  • 1. Battery Backup seems Good! You should be able to use 12 hours with a single charge for sure! For moderate use it will last 24 hours I guess. 2. For normal browsing or chatting phone won't heat but playing games, installing apps phone get heats on the top part but again that much heat won't be annoying. 3. My friend brought this phone from China Meizu Showroom :) Let me know if you are looking for questions or detailed answer. I will be my pleasure to answer.

  • How is the battery ? Heating issue any ?? How much you use your phone ?? Actually I need to use it around 12-15 hours , continuous ... So , battery backup is very important for me ! From where did you ordered the phone ... ?? Thanks in advance ... I'm sorry for so many questions !..

  • Hi I'm using this phone since 24 hours. So far no problem found. Ask me any question you have in your mind.

  • Hello to all, I watched today MX5 in nearby store (16GB). Well still pretty much Chinese language inside. There is also an upgrade (approx. 780MB) available but it's questionable what happened after eventually upgrade with, in service, posted Google Apps. And also after for example factory reset. I have read that in case of loosing languages it's not recommended to make an upgrade. I am from Croatia. Does anyone can give me some hint about it? Thanks in advance

  • how is the battery?

  • Can anyone plz give me a better feedback , I am concerned about the thing ... Someone is saying everything is fine , now I am hearing battery is not good ... See I use WhatsApp mainly around 12 hours a day ... With some internet surfing , not much though , during that 12 hours of time ... My phone usage is 12 hours only ... So anyone plz , and the main question , can I use it in my country India ?

  • HI!, HOLD ON do not buy it if you still want to know about the buttery it does not last for five hours if you use the phone with all the functions that means not on the save mode. so I wish if I bought my fav HTC. I AM DISAPPOINTED !

  • Does it have clearmotion video fluency enhancer funtion??????? Plz reply.

  • I start to use since 3 days ago. The phone running nice, fast in all the aspects. The only thing what i dont like is that this phone cannot find my 4 g network, and only with 3 g i have maximum 4 k/s. Can somebody help me with this? The second thing what i dont like is camera which cannot focus good in the night

  • MX5 over MX4: Dual Sim, Laser focus, Faster processor, Fast charging technology, Slightly bigger battery, Bigger screen, AMOLED (subjective), Infrared port, Bluetooth 4.1 (vs. 4.0), Higher resolution front camera, Cheaper! And yes MX5 has a finger print scanner

  • i dont listen to the rain, it drives people crazy. lol.

  • is it just me, or is the mx5 just an updated version of the mx4 pro? the camera,screen size and dimensions are almost the same,only difference is the chipset and the screen resolution, which i think is in favor of the mx4 pro. no mention either whether this has a fingerprint sensor, which the mx4 pro has. might be wrong though.

  • Ordered a 32GB with silver on white color and its on the way. One of the most beautiful devices I have seen lately. Just cant wait to get it!

  • Seriously!!! Do you mind who Designed a product at first time or who invented it? Why? Why does matter to you? I think It is non of your bussiness, you just do care about product quality

  • Hi friends. i want to buy this phone. Just woried about the battery life... can someone give us some long information?

  • Hi Mark, battery seems to be good, havent got the chance to fully test it because still the chinese version. But I can say that charging is really fast, I had MX4 and MI3 before and this is much superior

  • Flanders: Hey, how about battery performance? I know MX4 was quite good in that regard, but I just saw some unboxing video, where MX5 went about 6% of battery down during like 24 minutes, which would amount to 6-7 hours of screen on time... Problem is, it was in airplane mode without a sim and they didnt really do anything demanding (just went through the menu), so I'm worried battery life is gonna suck once you put in the sims and start I dunno, browsing web. Also, how is the pentile screen, is it nice or jagged? Thanks!

  • could you please provide the link about this OTG article? As I want to buy and need for sure...

  • Hello to all. I just got the Mx5 from China. sincerily the phone is impresive, I had Mx4 but this one is much superior. All of this is first contact though. Itss not coming with google store installed, and I cannot access Appcenter, any one can help on this? Tks

  • he means MX4

  • The Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 was found in the Geekbench 3 scores database. It ran its four Kryo cores at up to 3GHz

  • Wish it run on Snapdragon 820 2.00 Ghz.

  • Try novo stores in Rob manila and Lucky China Mall. They have demo units. But not sure if meizu 5 is already available.

  • aliexpress.com you are welcome

  • He said he had mx4

  • Stolen design? Check again: This design was copied from the original MX line-up back at early 2012.

  • Are you trolling or just born this way??

  • You had this phone since December? But phone was release just this July... hmmmmm...

  • I badly need this phone. Where to buy this phone in the Philippines?

  • All comments regarding overheating are either from bullshitters or people using the phone improperly (i.e. while charging, or with many apps on background seeping battery and power). I have this phone since December - no overheating - at all. I had a chance to play with a G3 (LG) - and that phone made me realize what REAL overheating is - and the MX4 -NEVER- gets to these levels, or even close - of over heating. I'm not saying it's a cool phone - always cold - but I know it's a fine built phone which has no such issues - not for me and not for anyone reviewing it - not anyone I seen at least. It doesn't get to the temps I got with the G3 at a simple MC5 gaming session, even when I took my MX4 to task at a loop of 6 times 3DMark benchmarks, or all GFXbench benchmarks together - or four times in a row Antutu benchmarks - all these instances never got the phone to the level of heat close to that of the G3, during this one 15 minutes or so gaming session. The Meizu MX4 Doesn't overheat - it's not a snapdragon wielding phone to be capable of overheating in the first place, simple as that.

  • mine don't over heat or hang, its a perfect phone for its price. Try to update your phone.

  • If you are using the phone while charging you should expect a heat no matter brand or chip they are. It is a common sense that do not use a phone while charging but many peoples seems to ignore this and always asking why their phones broke like this and that. This is a user error, period.

  • Hello, proven and tested that the meizu handsets are prone to heat super heat as to this mx5 model there is no difference from the successor mx4 and mx4 pro that is super heat up when browsing internet to games while charging. Second, keeps freezing and hanging its already octacore but how come it keeps freezing and hanging so you need to force restart the phone. Buy at your own risk do not commit suicide to yourselves and telling me if i only listen to Rain. Dont feel pity for yourselves in the end.

  • Design... Stolen design. But good stolen design.

  • Spemall.com tested it, and they say it have FM. Check the reviews at the bottom of the site, here is the link:

  • As far I know mx5 using Sony Imx230 sensor and iBlend doesn't copy?Good one.

  • Please confirm the SAR value Most full metal phones has more SAR value.... even iphone 6 has above avarage SAR (just point below regulation) So Please help ... And Ya GSMArena is not showing precise value about SAR most xiaomi shows wrong SAR gsmarena

  • yes

  • yes

  • yes

  • As per information available online, Meizu MX5 does support OTG cable. This will enable you to connect devices like pen drives to it via OTG cable.

  • yes it does

  • omg.... i love this phone,

  • What do you expect? LOL

  • Performance wise its good but battery is non removable WTF :-D

  • Hey does this phone support USB OTG like mi4, If yes plz confirm me. I would like to buy this phone.

  • this is like a frankenstein, part iphone(back cover), part samsung(home button), part HTC(main camera). The horror...

  • I have a question. Will be a meizu mx5 pro??

  • China product is best only for desine not for quality...so, don't buy who want quality

  • Gsmarena plz review this ph asap

  • Gsmarena plz review this ph asap

  • Sar rating??

  • When can this phone be baught?

  • What do you want it is cheap phone, you can wait and will buy PRO version mx5.

  • I like this phone, but unfortunately this one do not support LTE band of my region (only band 1-3)

  • I want this phone right now itself....

  • i agree with u . i like zte nubia z9 s n xiaomi mi5 s designs . i think i should just wait for the prices to drop before buying one n while waiting for the more to perfect design while enjoying my zenfone 2 4gb ram . i should have waited a little more patiently . sob sob ..

  • i like the meizu mx5 specs but prefer the huawei honor7 design .

  • can anyone tell his finger print device?

  • Actually this uses mt6795, which are a53 cores.

  • another iphone 6

  • What is this? HELIO 10??? But MX5 didint have nothing what Helio10 have: 120Hz FHD display technology MiraVision Industry-leading picture quality technology (color/sharpness/contrast) SmartScreen ClearMotion InstantFocus Super Slow-Motion Where are all this things??? Where is InstantFocus? Thy have just 100FPS??? But where is 240FPS and 480FPS??? And Helio10 is like SD810, why he cant record video 1080 in 60FPS???

  • it is a mix of "MX4" and "MX4 Pro" with some improvements in design and display and color options! I like it so much!

  • Not having Expandable memory is a huge let down. Now this is nothing unique from many other phones, say, One Plus Two.

  • Ummmmmmmmmah, love the design and specs, im dying to have it in my hands,

  • why it does not have NFC?

  • Its not a copy of iphone except it replace the plastic back with metal one.

  • does this have IR blaster?

  • It's back side is not like the previous version and it's an obvious copy of iPhone 6's design.

  • Are you kidding me.... I think mediatek is better than snapdragon which have heating issue with the 810

  • excuse me,but this is so MX4 design...and MX4 was anounced before iPhony 6...

  • It did not copy anything

  • This is a very good device but I prefere Xiaomi, even it is more expensive.I wait for Mi5 which has a far better design...let's wait for specifications

  • Mediatek uses old cores which is targeted for low budget phones, I have an HTC desire using the 6592 mediatek chipset which lags and have heating issues,just to say that mediatek is not reliable and stable. My HTC has a Mali 450 mp4 gpu which is great for gaming but as the chipset is not stable it is not worth a shot. The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is reliable and stable. A device clocked at 1.7 octa core for mediatek and another different device powered by a Qualcomm chipset clocked at 1.2 quad core, the performance will be more likely to be the same. But I love Qualcomm chipsets.

  • According to the official info at Meuzi website this model supports Micro SD (uses the second SIM-slot)

  • Its copy of Apple 6.. but still apple strong in market because of an ios...

  • Still no card slot? What is this, 2008?

  • wow real iphone copy how sad and they cant make their own design ????

  • that's enough, look at the speaker, usb and mic. Why they copy things from Apple!!, MX4 was quite unique... this is just a copy of iPhone 6.

  • like previous model (mx4)

  • It doesn't have Radio but you guys mentioned it when you talked about the device. So does it have or it does not? I know the previous ones didn't have this feature, and I am curious about the MX5.

  • it is a very good choice to place the volume rocker and power button on the right side of phone!!! i hope that meizu continues this way for m3 and etc.

  • IPhone 6, Igalaxy S6 and now IMeziu MX 5. They should call it MX6 LOL.

  • Still using power vr G6200 GPU.like previous model (mx4)

  • Another awesome phone that doesn't support the 1700 frequency :-( It's making me question if i should stay with Wind

  • which frequencies of 4g does it support?

  • pretty weak gpu...

  • Oh yeah .. Mediatek is better than snapdragon 810 that suffers from heating issues .. Mediatek is really powerful chipset

  • Drawback Processer is mediatek his suppose to snapdragon 810.

  • Just keep the specifications on the line and the battery minimum 3000mAh and keep the back of the phone good because the most ugly part is its back

  • Xiaomi is better than Meizu. Xiaomi is the Apple of China. Many people would choose to buy phone with better specification with a good quality and quantity.

  • I'm so excited for this and Xiaomi Mi5.

  • hey apple

  • Marco,first you've gotta come to terms with that for now,It Still Remains A Rumour,a very beautiful one which we'd like to see in actuality though,so in other words,HOW much it'll cost cannot yet be ascertained,not until its announcement has now been made official Secondly,even if you now have known the price and want it,,,,Marco,availability is and has always been the Major problem with Meizu.....like they sold the Meizu m1 note ,exclusively in india,so on the arrival of this MX5,let's just hope it sells in other countries this time,given its their Major 2015 flagship.

  • how much is the unit? How can i buy if i want ?

  • can i ask the quality...

  • can i ask about the quantity..

  • If it follows the path of flash sales the it is going to be doomed.

  • The camera is rumored to be from Nokia Pureview. I'll be waiting for this one.

  • Very interesting phone. Should be very affordable as well. Nothing is known about its battery or the performance of the camera.

  • The render looks very very good!

  • Very weak gpu should be better

  • Very Good Specifications .

  • Nice Phone. Cool Design. No lateral bezels. Beautiful. Good Specs. How much ?

  • So beautiful

  • spectacular specs
