Brand Meizu is quite often a decent smartphone in a nice design and interesting price. For that he is loved not only in China, but also in Ukraine.
One of such interesting novelties model Meizu M5. It belongs to the budget class. At the same pleases not only the price tag but the look and skills, as well as battery life. This device is praised by all.
Today we offer you a review Meizu M5 – visually, Autonomous and Anoprienko smartphone.
Meizu M5 is a classic candybar with a touchscreen. The model uses high-quality polycarbonate: durable and wear-resistant. This manufacturer assured us. But if you do not want to risk, just wear the smartphone in a case.
The apparatus is provided in five colors: classic black and white, Golden, and blue colors Tiffany. And black and gold variations are matte, while the rest is glossy.
Moreover, the color of the device quiet. It’s not glittering gold – and-La to “the rich”. Its luster is moderate and not evident. Such a device can surely be called a universal.
The entire front side of the phone is rounded on the edges of the glass with high quality oleophobic coating. It is with a 2.5 D effect. However, modern smartphones this is not surprising. 2.5 D glass is already almost all Chinese devices in terms.
These models are very similar. Both are on Board MediaTek MT6750. But the diagonal of the screen Meizu M5 more – 5.2 per inch. The developers are confident that this is the Golden middle: five inches, as in M3, is not enough, the 5.5 – on the contrary, too much, but the 5.2 – at the time. As in the bestseller Meizu Pro 6. It is possible that its success determined the appearance of the M5.
Side okolicsanyi frame smartphone noticeable. But in the price range of subtle and barely noticeable, like a flagship, and not needed.
Under the screen there are only “mechanics”. It is a multifunctional touch-manual button mTouch 2.1 which is integrated with a very sensitive fingerprint scanner. Section scanner settings located in the security settings.
The ergonomics of the traditional marginalia – as the other devices manufacturer: on the right are the power key and the volume control on the left – a place for SIM-card and memory card.
Back panel of the smartphone is smooth and without pronounced texture. Again, it’s polycarbonate. And he, by the way, is not inclined to collect the fingerprints of users, which, of course, written in the advantages of the model.
In addition, plastic is advantageous. Yes, metal gadgets found its user. Not even so – the army of users. And metal really is the perfect material for communication devices, however, are not cheap, unlike plastic.
Plastic and metal unit with identical technical specifications and features can sometimes belong to different price categories (the only notable exception – affordable smartphone with a fingerprint scanner Meizu M3S). Because many, not wanting to pay for the metal, just plastic choose. Among the advantages in the absence of interference for antennas and comfort when used on the street, when streets are severe frosts. In General, the casing cools the hand.
Below that, small labels, traditional for Meizu. Sticker with serial numbers can be removed.
The smartphone has a 5.2-inch IPS display with HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels, ~282 ppi). Yes, it is time to give the machine Full HD. In a time when more and more 4K devices, even this modest, but HD has its advantages. So, it saves battery power, and autonomy – it has always been important and always will be.
We know that today most of the users in the first place pays attention to how many lives the smartphone away from an outlet.
Multi – patially. In the price segment of the smartphone is standard.
The contrast is at a high level. The color temperature is too high to cold shades.
Color range deviates from the triangle RGB only in the area of green hues. And the error is small.
Meizu M3 and Meizu M3s the same hardware base. Even RAM of the same: 2 or 3 GB, depending on configuration. Moreover, in a model with 2 GB RAM internal memory 16 GB, 3 GB for 32 GB. Built-in reserves can be expanded by microSD, but at the expense of dvuhtonnoy.
In the benchmarks a device showed himself worthy – even in the version with 2 GB of RAM.
As for graphics, it provides a Mali-T860MP2. This is not the most advanced solution, but for budget GPU enough. On my M5 you can easily play favorite toys.
However, in difficult have to lower the graphic quality. But “odnopolchane” arcade games for Meizu M5 is what you need. And thanks to the quality of oleophobic coating, finger glides over the glass surface without leaving residue.
The smartphone supports all modern wireless communication. It will take two SIM cards (nano-SIM), the work is consistent.
But note that the slot for the SIM hybrid, and you have to choose: either dvuhtonnoy, or a lot of memory due to microSD media.
The phone app is like that in any other camera manufacturer. In the tested sample was not support T9 for the Russian language. But that’s okay, because not everyone uses speed dial: sometimes it is “issues”, which is better, so to speak, to protect themselves.
But the function record telephone conversations smartphone has. Useful when is not possible to write information “dictation” or when you need to prove his innocence.
Navigation works correctly. On cold start it only takes a few seconds. GLONASS support without problems.
Proprietary interface Flyme happy high quality optimization. Because the Meizu smartphones – even those that are not the most productive hardware, just a simple state – work stably and smoothly, as I want to any user.
However, if the user is not familiar with shell Flyme, will have to adapt: for example, reinterpreted the settings menu and shortcut. And it is likely that this is all he likes that he fell in love with Meizu, evaluating the accessibility and quality of what the producer does and what it can do.
However, for shooting food-seals-a favorite of the cameras Meizu M5 is enough.
Battery and work offline
I would like to Express special thanks to the manufacturer for the autonomy model. Usually on a single charge, this smartphone lasts at least two days. There has been, of course, relatively modest HD resolution of the screen, and undemanding hardware, and optimized SOFTWARE.
There are app for monitoring your battery consumption, which without him. It is also possible to control the power modes.
The bundled power adapter – 2A. It is a pity that there is no support for fast charging. But the fault will not: Meizu M5 – not a flagship, for which it is mandatory.
The front side is indicated by the model. Marginalia – empty. Long faces show the author’s smartphone.
The model is very similar to the previous smartphones of the manufacturer. But she’s already with fashion now a 2.5 D glass, however unfashionable the plastic, not metal, as is now love. But it has helped the manufacturer to keep the price tag of the device reasonable: do not inflate the cost to the very heavens.
