Summary: There is a lot to like about the Meizu MX. It symbolizes a nearly-perfect convergence of all the good stuff – but it needs more polishing and modernizing. The software is functional and fluid, but there are some bugs to come with it.
The Meizu MX: Is It a Knock-Off or a Stroke of Ingenuity?
30 September 2012
Summary: Overall opinion: Keep “knock off” out of mind, and holding comment on battery life, this is not a bad smartphone to own. Good resolution provides really decent imaging, if you don’t slant the angle too badly. Not bad for an iPhone-Samsung mixed approach.
Summary: The Meizu MX quad-core is an interesting phone from a design perspective, and we can see why it created so much noise when it was announced and available. Of course, the world has a bit changed since, but this handset clearly puts Meizu on the radar of a huge audience in Asia, and of enthusiasts in...
Conclusion: The Meizu MX 4-core is quite a bit of a shocker. Just like the original Meizu MX, this Chinese smartphone has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, and interested. There we go, that's one.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and penta-band 3G support, 21.6 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 4.0" 16M-color ASV capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 960 pixel resolution; Gorilla glass, Heavily skinned Android OS v4.0 ("Flyme OS"), 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali-400MP GPU, Exynos 4212 Quad chipset, 1GB of RAM...
Cons: Tries too hard to beat the iPhone at its own game, Sub-par viewing angles and sunlight legibility, Looks exactly like its predecessor, No dedicated camera key (but cool Gesture captuire option and volume rocker alternative), Non-expandable internal storage, Battery not user replaceable, No FM radio
Meizu MX 4-Core Review: It's Like Sticking A V10 In A Ford Pinto
30 June 2012
Summary: The MX 4-Core really is like a Ford Pinto with a V10 engine. The almost laughable combination of a cutting-edge quad-core Exynos processor with the MX's unassuming plastic form factor and dumbed-down software experience makes for quite the odd couple.
Meizu MX – the successor to the M9 is here, bringing affordable power and style to everyone
16 December 2011
Conclusion: The price for all of the above is only $470 for an unlocked smartphone in China, and I have no doubt there will be some additional discounts to get more customers, so that makes for one great bargain. Let’s hope that things turn out to be just as good as with the first model.
