    On the Meizu line

    After trying a few Meizus, the M5 follows the line, very similar to M2 or M3, very similar camera, very similar processor, very similar design. The camera is good, a little inferior in quality to the Meizu Note and the Xiaomi. It is very fluid is a normal daily use, without talking about games, and the battery behaves well, if you reach the autonomy of the Xiaomi. He needs to improve a little. Flyme is still one of the most beautiful and fluid systems, it comes totally in Spanish without Chinese apps, and it seems that it has solved the problem of notifications. The central button becomes very comfortable once you get used to it. Then you can not live without him. In his battle with Xiaomi he wins in design but loses in performance.

    All right ... at the beginning

    At first it worked quite well and smoothly, but as the months went by and it was still a year since I bought it, the sensitivity of the screen at the bottom of the screen began to fail, a fault which sometimes manifests itself and others disappears Then it started to go quite slow when opening applications and using them. For example, the fact of playing YouTube videos, which do not play smoothly but stop several times for thousandths of a second every two times. Another flaw is that when taking pictures, sometimes, a message appears saying "the temperature of the phone has reached its maximum level, the camera will close" and automatically closes, preventing me from taking pictures sometimes even when I have not even taken a single photo. Also, sometimes applications stop running in the background that I have not used for a while and messages appear asking me to wait or force closure. It's very frustrating and I do not know if my mobile is

    Very good

    I think a good mobile but with a very important CONTRA. The glass screen protectors there is NONE that fits perfectly. I have bought amazon and ebay and they all leave the unattached protector on all four edges, which is quite ugly and uncomfortable when it comes to pressing the letters on the ends.

    Good pretty and cheap

    For the price it is a very good option. Although I have tried others from another brand like Xiamoi Redmi 4 which I liked more on screen resolution issue. But the exterior finish of the Meizu I like more, as it reminds an iPhone. If you are looking for a good smartphone at a reduced price Meizu M5 is what you are looking for. I leave you a video that I made so that you can see the phone https://youtu.be/bjST4R7oxw0

    Excellent budget phone.

    There are a lot of pluses and very few drawbacks (the main disadvantage is that the processor in the resource-intensive games is very hot and at night the camera takes bad pictures)

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
