From Meizu MX4 to Meizu MX5: See the innovation, improvements and style change of Meizu flagship

All along, Meizu has given us the impression that it is for the small group, exquisite, scrupulous about every detail and so on. Ever sice Meizu M8, Meizu has adopted the strategy that a elite product per year. And it did successfully won many Meizu fans’ favor. As time goes by and with the cost put in, Meizu began yo release Meizu MX4, MX4 Pro, Meizu M1 Note, Meizu M1, Meizu M1 Note 2 and other devices. Until June this year, Meizu’s new flagship device MX5 finally released that ends the less than year life circle of Meizu MX4. With the popularity of its models, Meizu phones are becoming more and more recoginizable by users.

Meizu’s significant sales has made the company a lot of money. Fron the flagship Pro series, mid- range MX series to the affordable Meizu M1 series, all are used to be sold out. The hot sale of Meizu phones made its competitors Xiaomi and Huawei Honor quite worried.

Meizu MX4

Meizu MX4 that released last September is said to be the final smartphone that adopts Meizu’s classic design. The well crafted Meizu MX4 used 5.36 inch 15:9 screen and the symbolic round home button. The curve of its back cover is similar to the Meizu MX3. But it applied more high-end aviation aluminum metal frame, providing better texture.

The presence of Meizu MX5 is an overall improvement to MX4. Just from the screen, Meizu MX5 is changed from MX5’s IPS screen to Samsung Super Amoled screen. It is with more beautiful display and the NTSC color gamut even reachs 100%. Comparing with LCD, Super Amoled screen is thinner and more power saving, contributing to the 7.6mm thickness of Meixu MX5 which is much thinner that MX4’s 8.9mm. The first Android press Fingerprint ID button mTouch that equipped on Meizu MX4 Pro also got new update as well. Like Meizu M1 Note 2, Meizu MX5’s Home button supports the interactive logic that touch to back to the last page and press to back to the Home page. And it also supports faster fingerprint identification, improved the operation that fits users’ operating habit. On appearance, Meizu MX5 even adopts full metal body design that ends the era of plastic back cover, becoming the flagship smartphone’s new benchmark.

On price, the price tag of 1799 Yuan provides Meizu MX5 great advantage, comparing with Xiaomi Mi4, Huawei Honor 7, LeTV 1 and so on. But Meizu MX5 seems to be more mainstream now and lack the style of Meizu. The classic small round Home button which used to be Meizu’s symbol is never seen again, so is the 15:9 screen. Even the curve of the back cover is less sharp than Meizu MX4 and MX3. Meizu MX5 has actually discarded many unique features and the Meizu characters that it has used for years.

If we say Meizu MX5 is a representative product to develop new market and achieve more sales, then MX4 is the last masterpiece that with all the Meizu features on board. Meizu MX4 represents the past of Meizu and the best craftsmanship is reflected on Meizu MX4 as well. While Meizu MX5 leaves it tradition behind and uses the totally new material and design style.

From the design, Meixu MX5 seems to be a different one. But from the prodcut itself, Meizu MX5 truly got many improvements. Let’s seen the innovation of Meizu MX5 to MX4 from details.

On configuration, needless to say, it has greatly improved. Since Meizu MX4, Meizu has become the firmest voice of MediaTek, this one is no exception as well. The advantage of MTK processor on running score is acknowledged. And it compatibility becomes much better than before. Using MTK processor, the performance of Meizu MX5 no longer needs to be worried about.

On appearance and other details, the lame dispensing technology on Meizu MX4’s screen has been improved finally. On Meizu MX5, Meizu fans no longer need to endure the uneven edges and dispensing on the screen.

Meanwhile, Meizu MX5 also first supports dual SIM/dual standby. And its system is the universal Flyme OS. The features of allowing dual SIM support and dual 4G LTE at the same time are quite convenient.

Meizu MX5 vs Meizu MX4

Before, it was difficult to understand, why Meizu MX4 and MX4 Pro still used removable back covers. And after removed the back cover, users can only plug in or out the SIM card, but couldn’t change the battery. Now after changed to the full metal body, Meizu MX5 does not support removable back cover any more, the cracks between the back cover and the frame are no longer there either.

However, on the Black version Meizu MX5, the bright Silver back does not seem to fit the back front panel. The back cover obviously fits the White version more. It just makes users think of the dark Grey MX4 more.

On Meizu MX5, the Power button is finally moved to the frame of the phone. For more than 5.0 inch smartphones like Meizu MX4, the design that puts the Power button at the top is totally inconvenient. Meizu MX5 has made a right decision to move the Power button to its side edge.

Meizu MX5 vs Meizu MX4

As for the position of Meizu MX5, the whole body od Meizu MX5 is thinner, so the camera is slightly protruding, While on Meizu MX4, there is no such problem. Meanwhile, Meizu MX5 also added assistant infrared focus function to its LED Flash, proving quite excellent focus speed to the phone.

The improvements of details mentioned above reflect the sort of artisan spirit that Meizu’s CEO Huang Zhang emphasized. It’s just the inheritance of tradition has become less important. For Meizu, the progress of this stage is universally recognized. Tradition or innovation, which one is more important. Meizu has made its choice and Meizu fans have also made choice by the orders. For the Meizu fans that still keep the tradition in mind, time will explain all.
