Amazingly perfect
26 Oct 2016 By remoshut On snapdeal.com

One of the best smartphone from Meizu, Its sad that Mx5 is not available currently. But thanks to snapdeal and Meizu, I got the last piece that was sold here.

Excellent Product
12 Apr 2016 By naveen_singh90 On snapdeal.com

Overall a very good phone that you couldn't get in this price range. VIDEO RECORDING of 4k is really great. As I tested on Antutu Benchmark, I have got my phone on 13th position in whole world. Camera is perfect. 3GB RAM works great. Noticeable thing is only it has heating issue with your in-built flyme OS 4.5.2, you can resolve this issue by updating it to 5.1.3 Camera performance in low light also not appreciable. Front Camera 3 out of 5.
