Meizu Pro 5 Phone Review

meizu pro 5

Meizu smartphones have been gaining popularity for some time now, and for good reasons. Now, they have released their new flagship phone, the Meizu Pro 5 phone, which on first glance, seems like something you should look out for. Let’s check out what this phone has to offer!

The Characteristics

The Meizu Pro 5 is a phone with a 5.7″ display. It is a pretty large phone, but it is incredibly sleek and thin, providing a very good feel in the hand. It has a solid metal body, and if you ask me, it is one of the better looking phones at the market right now.

This phone comes in two variants: the 32GB model with 3GB of RAM and the 64GB model with 4GB of RAM. Both of them use the Exynos 742 chipset.

What is really good about the Meizu Pro 5 is its long lasting battery which supports quick charging. It also has this year’s favourite fingerprint scanner! What isn’t very good is the camera. The Meizu Pro 5 has a 21-megapixel camera with laser auto focus system, build by Sony. In good light conditions, the phone is capable of producing awesome photos. Yet, as there is less light, the quality of pictures gets lower also. The phone has a 5-megapixel front camera, which isn’t that well.
