There’s one word that sums up the Ubuntu Mobile-powered Meizu MX4 — quirky. It’s a little like the first few versions of Android. Limited app support, less than perfect UI, and not very refined, but crucially, full of promise. The quirkiness makes it hard to recommend to anyone considering defecting from Android or iOS, or someone who wants to use the phone every day. Without some key apps, it may end up being frustrating, or worse, not realistically useable each day. I certainly found it that way, and couldn’t carry it as my sole device purely because it didn’...

Meizu m1 note turned out to be everything we hoped for - it has the looks, it utilizes a snappy processor and powerful graphics accelerator, there is a big and capable display, and even the camera did great. The Flyme launcher is getting better and it even smuggled in an Android Lollipop feature to its KitKat build - pinning apps in the app switcher. We loved the Flyme OS user experience. It sure has borrowed a lot from iOS, but we didn't mind that as much as we thought we would. It's a simple and clean user interface, snappy and lag-free.

Meizu has done a wonderful job with the MX4 Pro, combining impressive build quality and raw power with intuitive software, to produce a great user experience.
Unlike many Chinese smartphones, it doesn't come with the normal risks associated with importing and though more expensive than in China, the international price still represents great value for money.
While many will be waiting to see what the first crop of 2015 flagships bring to the table, the Meizu MX4 Pro certainly is an interesting proposition for those currently looking for a high-end smartphone with a differenc... Full review
The MX4 Pro serves as a great example of the growth we’re seeing out of China. Just a few weeks back at CES 2015, we got to see a few high-quality but affordable devices from Chinese companies, and that is a trend that looks to be on the rise.
Meizu is in the thick of this trend with a phablet offering that manages to be powerful but accessible at the same time. Its design choices aside, the shell is just a casing for all of the power that is found underneath. A QuadHD display, good performance, an enjoyable sound stage, and an above average camera all make the MX4 Pro a pa... Full review
The Meizu MX4 Pro is every bit as good as the MX4 - in terms of looks and feel, build quality, connectivity and the custom Flyme OS launcher. The thing is most people probably have no idea just how good the stock MX4 is. But if the MX4 was an easy one to slip under European users' radar, the Pro version is more likely to get noticed. And for the right reasons, too.
To begin with, it's the phone with the highest-res screen in the market. Now, the real value in that is still debatable but, like it or not, QHD screens are the way to go for the industry flagships.

The Meizu MX4 Pro builds up on the successful formula of the Meizu MX4: it keeps the signature simplistic, good-looking design and the futuristic minimal screen bezel. At the same time, Meizu is out competing with top flagships here: it includes a flagship-grade Quad HD display that looks fine, an adequate system chip, as well as a fast and reliable fingerprint scanner. In addition to all this, sound quality on the MX4 Pro is great and will please audiophiles. All of this works admirably well on the sleek and modern-looking Flyme Android skin.
The only area where Meizu could have... Full review
