"Meizu MX4 official: octa-core CPU, 2GB RAM, high-res display for $300"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Source: http://www.androidauthority.com/meizu-mx4-official-518936/

OppoMart page: http://www.oppomart.com/meizu-mx4.html

 

Specs for the Meizu MX4

-5.36" 1920x1152 display (that's one funky screen resolution) 

-2.2GHz MediaTek MT6595 octo-core

-2Gb of RAM 

-20.7MP rear Sony camera

-2MP front Sony camera

-Storage options: 16, 32, or 64 gigabytes 

-3,100mAh battery

-GSM: 2G, 3G, 4G, and LTE connectivity (bands/frequencies not known right now) 

-Android 4.4 KikKat with Flyme 4.0

-Made of aluminum alloy

-Weighs 147g 

-Will cost $300 (before taxes and shipping) 

 

I know that MediaTek doesn't make the best SoC. They're nowhere near as good as Qualcomm, Nvidia, Intel, etc. but they're still not as bad as some people make them out to be. Say what you want about MediaTek, but their chips are letting us have octo-core smartphones for as little as $300 off contract. As for benchmarks of this chip, we'll just have to wait for them, unless another smartphone is out already with this SoC installed (I honestly don't know if there is). 

 

But anyways, the Meizu MX4 will go on sale later this month, but it's already listed on OppoMart, but it's "out of stock." (Link found above.) 

 

Not only does the phone have impressive specs and a stellar price point, but it also looks pretty darn good.

EDIT:

Thank you to @dizmo for pointing this out. Meizu also announced a companion smartwatch that's circular and made out of glass and metal. Oh, and it's only $65.

The looks remind me of an ipod touch ^^ I guess we'll have to see how it performs compared to a nexus 5

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

*21.7 MP Sony Exmor R Camera. 

The source and the OppoMart listing clearly state that it is a 20.7MP camera.

I don't see how it's not possible. The OnePlus One - another $300 smartphone - is using a Sony camera as well. 

 

and mediatek is well known.

I'm aware of this, but here in the USA (I can't speak for other countries) they're not so well known, at least not by the mainstream crowd. MediaTek SoC are more commonly found in Chinese smartphones.

Woops. Can't believe I forgot to add that in. My bad. The source and the OppoMart listing state that is is using a 3,100mAh battery.

But the 20.7 sensor has only been on Sony phones because it's their best sensor. the oneplus one sensor and all the other sony sensors are comparable but not as good as the sony one.

I'd pick this up actually just to see if it's any good.

@TopWargamer you forgot one neat piece of kit...the smart watch you can get to go with it for $65.

Yes, it's glass and metal.

I'm hoping he was just being sarcastic.

and mediatek is well known. 

Sony sells their sensors to whoever will pay them money. As do most companies with such offerings. For example LG makes a huge number of displays for many, many companies.

You sure about that? I'm pretty sure it's been in other products.

 

What an awkward resolution. 1920 x 1152?

It's 1080p with some space left over for their on screen buttons..so you always get the full 1080p. Personally I think it's a great idea and more OEM's should adopt it.

This would be more fitting as its own thread, but since you posted it, i'll just go ahead and add it to my OP. If you make a thread about it, I'll edit it out. But thats' really cool, and damn does it look good.

Haha, nah go nuts. You're the news reporter ;)

It does  however claim a couple of months battery life, so I get the feeling its uses are a lot more restrictive than something with Android Wear on it. Hell the LG watch has the same spec as the Moto G iirc.

I'd imagine it's a stiff competitor for something like a Pebble though.

wouldn't it be 17xx by 1080? instead of 1920x1152.

That actually looks like a nice phone, if I got one, I might swap the launcher but hey-ho. I would order one but there's a couple of problems for me.

1) Because of the looks and me being in school, everyone will blatently say "you're too cheap to get an iPhone" ect

2) Dont know about around the world, but the UK has stupid import terms,

i) buy item, ii)pay shipping, iii) pay what the VAT is worth (I think its either 17.5% or 20%), iv) Hope Customs don't seize it as counterfit goods (If they do, you have lost your money if you don't contest against the desision), v) Pay Customs Charge, then steps i-v, will be the same for optional accessories such as the smart watch.

The phone is made out of aluminum alloy...I highly doubt that your friends will be able to mock a phone that looks nice...
