Meizu MX4 Pro Sound Capabilities Might Not Be As High As Expected

December 4, 2014 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Meizu has announced their MX4 Pro handset last month and along with that announcement the company has revealed many features this handset offers, whether we’re talking hardware or software. Meizu’s Flyme OS offers a lot of software features, but the company did their best to differentiate in the hardware department as well. Let’s take sound for example, Meizu has mentioned “Retina Sound” in their announcement and also listed ES9018 and OPA1612 audio chips which are combined with a passive filter inside the device in order to provide deep base and crisp sound. This handset also provides a loud output, 123db has been mentioned as well. All that sounds good, but it seems like this handset isn’t all that good as we though on the sound front, though that of course depends on what you expected. First report from China says the audio is alright, but not as good as expected, truth be told, it was tested by an audio expert of sorts and I do believe he has a different standards as far as audio goes. He didn’t exactly say that the sound is bad, but it’s not great either. We’ll test the audio capabilities of his handset as part of our full review, but this is the first report of this kind, let’s wait for some more information before drawing the final conclusion.

Meizu MX4 Pro comes sporting a 5.5-inch 2K (2560 x 1536) display along with 3GB of RAM for your multitasking needs and 16, 32 or 64GB of internal storage. This handset is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5430 octa-core processor which comes with Mali-T628 MP6 GPU for graphics processing. On the back of this phone, you’ll find a 20.7-megapixel IMX220 sensor from Sony (Exmor RS) while there’s a 5-megapixel shooter up front, OmniVision’s sensor. This device ships with Android 4.4 KitKat and Flyme OS on top of it and the 3350mAh battery is also a part of this package. The device measures 150.1 x 77 x 9mm and it weighs 158 grams while it also sports 4G LTE connectivity. Fingerprint scanner is also here and it will launch in China on December 16th. Price? Well, you’ll have to splash out 2499 Yuan ($408) for the basic 16GB version, the 32GB model will cost you 2699 Yuan ($441) and 3099 Yuan ($506) is the price for the most expensive, 64GB version, which is not a lot at all considering the specs of this beast.
