Meizu MX4 Review and Specs
For almost 2 years now, phone makers in China have been spearheading into the Malaysian market mercilessly. They brought in phones that were not only very affordable, but packed with high specs and features, without having to break your bank wide open. The rising company Meizu, one of many Chinese phone makers like Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei and OnePlus, has recently released their Meizu MX4, and itâs something to be really impressed about.
Being leaked for quite some time already, the device was finally unveiled in Beijing, and now itâs making its way to Malaysia. Unofficially of course, thanks to our local grey importers.
Meizu MX4 is a very impressive piece of kit. The devices dimensions are 75.2 x 144 x 8.9mm, and design wise it looks awfully like an Android version of the iPhone 6. Itâs 5.36-inch screen is full HD, on a resolution of 1920Ã1152 that pushes a pixel density of 418ppi. Although this looks good on paper, it has a very unusual screen size with an aspect ratio of 15:9.
Meizu MX4 runs on Mediatekâs MT6595 octa-core processor, featuring 4 ARM Cortex-A17 processors and 4 Cortex-A7 processors, claiming to outperform itâs predecessor the MX3 by 87%. For gaming, thereâs a PowerVR Series 6 GPU which claims to be an 88% upgrade over itâs predecessor. 2GB of RAM will handle the multitasking, along with a variety of storage options for you to choose from such as 16GB, 32GB or 64GB. Keeping the lights on is a 3,100 mAh non-removable battery thatâs sourced from Sony.
If that hasnât impress you yet, the camera just might. It packs a 20.7-megapixel IMX220, 1/2.3â³ CMOS sensor from Sony with a dual tone LED flash. Thereâs also a 2-megapixel Sony IMX208 front camera. For video, it has 4K UHD video recording capabilities at 30fps.
As for software, the Meizu MX4 will have Android KitKat 4.4.4 out of the box, with their own Flyme 4.0 OS pre-installed. Meizu has claimed that ART (Android Run Time) will be running default as soon as your device boots up, instead of the traditional Dalvik runtime. Flymeâs new and improved UI will feature a flat design, with several redesigned application icons, third party notification icons and popular site icons.
Security measures have also been improved, along with added voice assistance, reading center, and even a whopping 40TB of cloud storage. This will be Meizuâs first ever 4G smartphone, that will not only provide 4G to Chinaâs own telcos, but also to international markets including Malaysia thanks to itâs support for 4G FDD-LTE radio band, in which is currently missing in Xiaomiâs new flagship the Mi4, that only has TDD-LTE support. Itâs standard connectivity includes the latest 802.11ac with dual band 2.4GHz / 5GHz WiFi. GPS, GLONASS, Compass and other global positioning systems will be supported as well.
The MX4 will come in 3 colours, namely grey, white and gold, in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage options.
For those who need a change of scenery from Xiaomi, Oppo or even OnePlus, this could be your answer.
