Focus: Sharing of the basic features, New Meizu M5 Note Phone Model review phone view, photo quality, processor speed.

Meizu M5 Note's Design

The Meizu M5 Note stands out with its stylish design and metallic construction. As a matter of fact, it continues to follow Meizu's standard design language. The M5 Note, which has a single-piece metal chassis, is available in gray color.

When we look at the back of the phone, we see the antenna lines at the top and bottom edge. Here again, it is possible to see a wide rear camera and double-tone dual LED flash under it. The back side is not a more attention-grabbing detail.

On the right side is the power and volume buttons, on the left is the microSD card and the SIM card drawer. We have to say that the drawer here is a hybrid system at this point. So this phone offers you double SIM card support, but if you do not use microSD card. So if you use a microSD card, you will need to remove one from the cards.

When we look down at the bottom of the phone, we see the speaker cradle, the microUSB slot and the headphone jack. The phone should come with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, because the box does not have its own headphones. So you can use your own 3.5 mm jack headphones comfortably.

Do not you have a fingerprint reader on the M5 Note? Of course there is. Meizu has taken it to the main physical button at the bottom of the screen. If you remember, another Chinese Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 's that we could talk about in this model was behind the fingerprint reader phone; On the M5 Note is the front. In the meantime, I have to say that the speed of operation of the sensor is also very good.

Finally, let's also say that the phone has a weight of 175 grams and a thickness of 8.2 mm. It has a thinner profile than Redmi Note 4, especially at thickness.

Meizu M5 Note's Display and operating system

The M5 Note comes with a 5.5-inch screen. The screen is presented in Full HD resolution, acceptable at 70 percent screen-to-body ratio. The 16: 9 aspect ratio, the 403 ppi pixel density and the IPS LCD panel meet the standard, giving the phone the promise of color reproduction and contrast. Oh, maybe the readability of the screen may be slightly lower at high sunlight point; I have to say that.

When it comes to the operating system, the phone has an Android 6.0-based Meizu's own Flyme operating system. The phone, which comes with Flyme 5.2 , can of course be upgraded to Android 8.0 from various sources. I need to follow the about updates.

To be honest, the operating system is somewhat different from the Meizu M5 Note. As you may know, some Chinese smartphone manufacturers do not find Google Play and other Google services by default, even if they use Android infrastructure. You have to add them manually later. We have encountered this kind of situation in ZTE 's models before . There is a similar situation in the M5 Note.

But this is not as difficult as you think, but rather easy. Meizu has a Hot Apps application market instead of Google Play . When you open the phone for the first time and connect it to the internete, an update will come and download it. Then you open the Hot Apps application market and download Google Play and Google Play Services from there . Yes, your Google Play phone is now ready for use. After that, you'll only need to download the apps you want on Google Play. This process takes 2 minutes; but of course you also need to download YouTube, Gmail, and other Google apps you use .

There is not a problem with this part of the operating system, after you have skipped this step, the part of the Flyme interface that you will probably try to get the most out of is: There is no virtual or physical back or multi-application window in the phone. On the phone, you use the main physical button instead of the back button when navigating the interface; it also takes you to the main screen. You will have to use the back button in the application instead, but it does not always come out. In the multi-application window, you see when you scroll up the screen. This way you can switch between applications or screens. It will take you 1-2 days to use it, but we think you'll get used to it.

It is possible to find quite useful options in Settings in the operating system. Here you can find various tips for using the gesture in the Accessibility section, including the Do not Disturb (DND) mode , where you can use the nights , the color temperature of the screen and the options you can set for eye protection. Using them you can get a more intuitive experience.

Meizu M5 Note's Technical staff and performance

The Meizu M5 Note is one of the budget-friendly models at the price / performance point. The technical staff is also shaped accordingly. The Mediatek MT6755 processor, also known as the Helio P10 , is being offered to manufacturers in the third quarter of 2015 and the Cortex-A53 handset comes in 1.8 gigahertz and 1.0 GHz frequency with an 8-core processor.

With CPU performance, Geekbench 4 has a single core score of 707 and the multi-core score of 2559 points.

3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, the phone also has a Mali-T860 module with graphics processor . All of this collects 47967 points from the AnTuTu Benchmark in general . This score is similar to the equivalent models we have seen before. There is no trouble in this place.

The overall performance appraisal of the phone is equivalent to the scores we receive. Of course this phone is not designed for high-performance tasks. He respects the proper use of his class.

When we reach the end of battery life, we can say that the phone has a battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh . Offering impressive battery life with this capacity, the M5 Note, of course, offers battery life in different ways depending on usage. However, we can say that we have more than 5 hours of roaming time in our heavy usage scenario when it is plugged in 2 SIM cards, Wi-Fi is on and screen brightness is max. This also meets the 5-hour heavy duty cycle mentioned by Meizu. If you use a moderate usage, the time is up to 9 hours and 50 minutes, so if you are already using the phone lightly, this large capacity battery will last until the second day.

Finally, let's also say that you can charge the phone battery at full capacity in about 100 minutes and the phone offers fast charging support.

Without forgetting, we can easily say that the call quality of the phone is at acceptable level and the speaker sound performance meets the standards. Now let's look at the camera.

Meizu M5 Note's Cameras

In the Meizu M5 Note, we can call the camera array standard. Rear percent 13MP , while the obverse 5 MP 's lens. The diaphragm is slightly wider than the Redmi Note 4; f / 2.2. This shows that you can not really deal with the dark scenes; at least in technical sense. That does not mean that Redmi Note 4 is better. However, in this class of phones we often see frames that are well captured in good light conditions in technical and practical points. The same is true for the M5 Note. In this sense, in practice, let's say that the cameras perform an average performance. If we summarize this in the price segment of the phone, we can tell you that you will get more than you expect.

I have to say that 1080p 30 frames of video can be recorded at the video point , but that does not stop there; I also need to talk about camera software. The camera interface is well-crafted and offers us plenty of options. These include manual shooting, slow shooting and macro shooting. We can say that the camera of the M5 Note is completely acceptable if it will pick up this part as well.
