We all read the news so long been waiting for the release of the review smartphone Meizu Pro 5, which from the start was going to be epically cool device with otherworldly performance. So as soon as our friends in the IT-Mag brought some vehicles in America, I immediately took one of them, like with him for about a week, and is now ready to sort through what and how.
How does it look review smartphone Meizu Pro 5?
The company Meizu design technology Apple even before it became a common practice, it is not surprising that and review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 is slightly reminiscent of the latest generation of smartphones iPhone. But note that it lightly. Design accents are the same, but, all the same, camera in the wrong place, the control buttons are located elsewhere and look different.
On the front panel, we have only hardware button with built-in touchpad and fingerprint sensor. The power button and the volume brought to the right face and are so close to each other that I periodically take screenshots instead of reducing the volume level.
Housing metal is made of aluminum and is very comfortable to hold. Due to the sloping rear cover it comfortable to hold, and despite the impressive size, it is realistic to cope with this big guy with one hand.
In general, review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 I like appearance and tactile sensations, although a bit heavy.
What is in the box review smartphone Meizu Pro 5?
With a complete set in the Meizu, the standard is Cable USB Type-C with the classic full-size USB, Charger. In my case with the Chinese fork, clip to extract the SIM card instructions. In older models seems to be more to be a headset, but my version is nothing there.
Display: review smartphone Meizu Pro 5
The screen review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 is 5.7 inches and the resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels, which, as I never tire of repeating, it is reasonable for screens of this size. Type of matrix is Super AMOLED. Brightness, viewing angles are okay, although the minimum level as for my taste, too much effort on the eyes and in the dark, for example, is not very easy to read.
In the setting of the smartphone has a simple little utility for exhibiting the color temperature of text that takes us to another reason for headaches. How do you like, so the screen will show?
How does it work review smartphone Meizu Pro 5?
Today review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 is controlled very much reworked Android 5.1 with a proprietary shell Flyme. Is the system quite often and the size of firmware represents the titanic work of programmers so that in the future things can be different, but so far the picture is as follows?
Thanks to the enduring love Meizu iPhone, Android operating system had to close on one physical button and a couple of crutches. Surely such a decision has its fans, but it was very hard to readjust. As I said above, a hardware button is equipped with a touch-sensitive surface, and a simple touch it serves as a “Back” button. A strong mechanical press – this is a Home button and watch, do not mix! The “Task Manager” does not have separate keys, and it can cause a swipe from the bottom. It is important to start moving from the edge of the screen, or does not work, and in general, from the first pull “Carousel” running programs I get very rare. Of course, in accordance with apple trend separate menu for applications in the operating system is not. There are simply an unlimited number of desktops and folders. Everything from large, in general.
The long grip of the same button causes the voice assistant. In my case, the Chinese. Basically Android Now you can install from Google Play, but the button is still attached “Chinese”. Another looks at the review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 has a limit on the background job applications. And music players on Google Play in the background are working a few minutes, and then playback stop.
And since we’re talking about the Chinese, it is necessary to raise a very important question of localization. We have, as you know, the machine directly from China with their firmware, which Google services sawn almost completely alone Google Play available. And that’s in the IT-Mag able to choose their suppliers – one of my Russian colleagues a smartphone from China has arrived without any store Google and install it separately from colleagues why something did not happen. Here, again, Google Play is available, and I found all the necessary services. Their Chinese counterparts deleted – the good that could be done even without the Root-rights.
Also, the system scored another gesture, a quick call to the search. This is done by a simple swipe from the bottom up, anywhere on the screen. In my version, but alas, the search issue is tied to the Chinese market and will not appear until the “white” devices with localized firmware, otherwise no. Well, except that the craftsmen themselves gash.
In general, there is a case either to pay for “white” machine will likely rather a big amount, or take as is and put custom firmware. The second option I like, because I’m a miser, but you decide. So it goes.
How is powerful review smartphone Meizu Pro 5?
The review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 – one of the most powerful smartphone markets, which show the results of benchmarks and excellent job in all the games.

RAM, depending on the version, three or four gigabytes. Standing 32 or 64 gigabytes and supports cards MicroSD.
What should you know about this combination of characteristics? Firstly, smart heated under load, especially if you put it on the charging and start any game. Secondly, the level of the performance measure is meaningless, it’s huge. And in the context of the “iron” I have discussed only how long this configuration will still be relevant. In my opinion is a very long time. If the durability of components from review smartphone Meizu Pro 5 the order is to buy for three years, no less. Yes, there may be some new standards for mobile graphics, and 2017 on your Pro 5 will not be very beautiful shadows and highlights, as will the usual shadows and highlights. But the game will still fly, and in this sense, the purchase of such a monster is not a stupid thing.

It set a cool audio chip ESS ES9018K2M and amplifier OPA in 1612, plus a special technology that amplifies and improves the sound of the speaker. I confirm it works. Speaker yells not only very loud but clean, the sound is very pleasant. As for the quality of music in the headphones, the IT-Mag and I took another professional headphone Xiaomi and sound is really bombezny, very clean and detailed. I think the phone is easy to pull and steeper models ears, the potential then I heard very serious.

With the camera, whose matrix was allowed 23 megapixels, and the aperture value is equal to 2/2, all very nice. She takes excellent quality 4K-video and makes a very decent picture, good shooting modes much. However, I note, however, that depending on the source of light is very high. That is, a bright sunny day you can easily take off masterpieces, but on a cloudy day, and especially on the automatic adjustment may not get a clear mess.
What holds review smartphone Meizu Pro 5?
The capacity of the built-in battery is 3050 mAh and it’s enough to spend a day with such a powerful smartphone, especially not it in denying something.
