Video: White Meizu MX3 Unboxing and First Impressions

With Meizu’s commitment to launching their phones outside of China, we thought it would be prudent to put  the current flagship Meizu MX3 through its paces. First things first though wo here’s a detailed unboxing, hands on and first impression of the MX3 and Flyme 3.0.

    Andi first of all, can you please me tell me a word about the overall quality of the phone? Did you notice any crackles from the back cover or any other flaw (ex. the buttons or anything else)? And secondly, how is the battery life considering the fact of having switched on 3G, WiFi etc? Thank you in advance for your answer.

      Quality is pretty good, not on par with Oppo though. Battery life has been surprisingly good considering the small battery. Plenty of juice to get me through the day. My main issue is the buggy ROM, I had hoped Meizu would have sorted Flyme by now (my first Chinese phone was a Meizu M9) but it still has a few bugs and keeps crashing…

        It should be better quality than oppo..

        Thats just not true friend. Nobody says that..only you. I use a MX2 and in 1 year it crashed only once.

        • January 25, 2014

          It is true I’m afraid. Taking photos in ‘night’ mode caused the camera force close a number of times last night and finally resulted in the phone crashing. I have since updated to Flyme 3.4.1 and it has been stable all day which is good. I’ve test a number of MX and MX2 phones and they have all experienced odd behaviour.

    Does it run with all 8 cores active, heterogenous multi-processing? Heard a story that they were going to activate it in a new update a while ago.
