Hello! Today on the review of the flagship of the past 2014 - Meizu MX4. But whether it is relevant in 2015 you will find out under the cut ...
Purchase history
I wanted to update my old Amoi n821for something more modern. The gaze fell on the apple company’s devices - a beautiful design, support for updates ... But everything was spoiled by the closed system, the impossibility of its catomization. It was recalled (I had once seen reviews) that there isMeizu. Googled, looked ... So-and-so - M1 note, M2 note, MX5 - all wrong. If I eliminated the last two because of the physical button (like the MX4 pro), then the first - because of the quick decision to collapse this model. Meizu MX4 seemed to me the perfect solution. Ali just arranged a sale, and I grabbed this phone for $ 227.5 with Finland Post delivery (24 days).

Performance
In general, I do not believe in all these anttu and so on. As they want, they give out numbers from version to version. The main thing is that the device should work without failures)

On the telephone part, complete order - they hear megood and I, respectively, too. The sound is good both in the headphones and in an incoming call. Flyme is perfect for me - I don’t want to switch to anything else.
