    “The MEIZU MX5 is a loaded flagship, but falls short in terms of an all-round experience”Earlier this year, we posited that the MEIZU would be among the top brands to watch out for in 2015. While the company has a long way to go before it makes a permanent space for itself in the hyper-competitive Indian market, it seems to be on the right track with its budget phablets, the m1 note (first impressions), and its successor, the m2 note (review...

    Pros: Beautiful looks; Superb display; Fast, accurate fingerprint scanner ; Loaded innards;

    Cons: Buggy software; Average battery life;

    Verdict: Over the past one year, many attractive devices have come our way and to differentiate them from the crowd, we’ve coined various terms for them such as 'value-for-money' or 'budget-performance'. Another up-and-coming category these days is that of ...

    Overall: 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.
