Design & Display
Meizu try to make the prefect device and for that they take the motivation from Apple iPad. Air. Meizu uses Apple shape and design on their handsets. They try to gives the convenient devices to the users. Many people are familiar with Apple designs and in that way the design and the shape of the handset is not new for the users. The handset has a same metal body like Apple. The handset has 147 grams weight and the dimensions of the handset are equally measure as 144 x 75.2 x 8.9 mm from all sides. The handset screen is only few inches less than the phablets. The Meizu MX4 has 5.3 inches with display with 1152 x 1920 pixels resolution. The resolutions are perfectly workable in all light conditions. This is not enough Meizu devices are perfect and durable and for that they use Corning Gorilla Glass protection in the screen of the handset. This protection keeps away the handset from unwanted damages.
Software & User Interface
Like the others the handset Meizu MX 4 also runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system. As we all know this is one of the lightest operating systems and consumes less battery power for running the operating system and interface. But Meizu combine their own designed Flyme OS interface with this Android operating system. The purpose of the Flyme OS is to serve the users flawless processing and efficient working of operating system. Users can easily use this interface and operating system combination without any hassle.
Processor and Memory
Meizu also gives the open choice to the users to select the best configuration for them. Meizu MX4 has a powerful processor and efficient chipset and GPU for graphics. The handset comes with two processors option. One version is embedded with Quad-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A17 and the other version has quad-core 1.7 but both versions have same chipset and GPU. Company placed MediaTek MT6595 chipset and PowerVR H6200MP4 GPU. This is one of the flawless combinations for uninterrupted smartphone working. Meizu offers 2 GB RAM and three in built memory options as 16/32/64. Users have to be careful while selecting on board memory of the handset because the handset does not have card slot to increase the on board memory of the handset and users are restricted here they only have option to use in built memory of the handset. This is the first weak point found inside the handset which may affect the popularity of the handset.
Chinese manufactures emphasize to place powerful camera in the handset because they know very well this is one way to grab the uses attentions and make them satisfy with this feature. The Meizu MX4 has a 20. Mega pixel rear and 2 mega pixel front facing camera. The pixels density of the camera is 5248 х 3936. The camera has some smart additional features like autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus and face detection. Users can use these features without any extra efforts. These features require one time setting and after that they can adjust automatically when the users start using the camera features.
Like most of the Chinese manufactures Meizu also placed the powerful battery inside the handset. The hand takes the power from Non-removable 3100 mAh battery. The stand by time and talk time of the battery are still not known but it is expected that the battery provides the sufficient time to the users as talk time and enough stand by time to the handset to keep the handset on but there is a draw back. Company placed the non removable battery inside the handset and if any miss handling happens with the battery users need o change the whole handset instead of battery alone and in this case maybe they lose the complete data they save in the handset.
Network, Available Colors, Price and Release Date
Meizu MX4 is the handset that fulfills all the latest network connectivity options like 4G and LTE. The handset will be available in three attractive colors Gray, White and Gold. There is a price difference found in the handset. Company set the price tag according to the onboard memory capacity options. 16 GB model will be available in $292, 32 GB has $325 price tag and the 64 GB will be available against $390 price.
There is no information available anywhere that when the handset will hit the complete globe. Users can book the handset in advance on Meizu’s official website and the goods will arrive on 20th September in China. Maybe after the successful capturing the Chinese markets company will take the step towards the other markets of different regions.
