In terms of sharpness, we’re dealing with a pixel density of 546ppi here, more than enough for even the most eagle-eyed viewers who examine their displays with a Sherlock Holmesian fever.

The Meizu MX4 Pro design is a display of craftsmanship with a solid build quality, thin bezels and nice in-hand feel.

Reviews Word on the street for the Meizu MX4 Pro

Most of you will point out that a large and vivid display, powerful processor, a solid, refined design, and a good camera are a must.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


It’s worth pointing out that Meizu has done an outstanding job cramming in a large 5.5-inch display in a very compact-for-the-size body.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Icons are larger than usual which is a nice touch in terms of usability, and they also look modern in a simplistic way.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Finally, viewing angles are also nice and wide.

The 5.5” Quad HD display is sharp and features vivid, but overblown colors that are not perfectly accurate.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
The octa-core Exynos 5430 handles the Quad HD load nicely, and the experience is smooth.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
The possible culprit behind such a good battery result on a device with a Quad HD display is likely the very efficient NEGA LCD panel that is said to consume only 5% more than the smaller, 1080p 5.36” MX4 display.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)


Under low light and with no flash, though, we were pleasantly surprised by how sharp images look (when they are in focus), and how well colors are preserved.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
It also packs a fingerprint reader, but those are hardly its only highlights: it delivers with a 5.5” Quad HD, nearly bezel-less display, a powerful, octa-core Exynos 5430 system chip, a 20-megapixel main camera and a spacious 3350mAh battery.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
The native aspect ratio of the sensor is a rather traditional 4:3, while pixel pitch is on the small side at 1.17 micron size for each individual pixel.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)


Good battery life is also essential, and so is a fast and good-looking user interface.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
For all else, the actual performance depends on the mode you choose to run the phone in: power-saving, balance, or performance (you select this in the battery section of settings).
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
In real life use, the MX4 Pro should be able to last a full day easily, and under average use you might need to charge once every two days, which is great.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)


In this mode, four of the eight cores are shut down, and clock speeds hover around the 1.2GHz mark (with occasional spikes to 1.5GHz).
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
If you want to unleash the full potential of the MX4 Pro, we recommend running it in ‘performance mode’ where all eight cores are unleashed, and the peak speeds do indeed go up to 2GHz.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
We could not reach the maximum advertized 2GHz frequency in this mode, it seems that the cores cap at 1.8GHz, while the average running clock runs closer to 1.5GHz.
