Meizu has shared a few Flyme 5 apps for non-flyme (5) users.
Therefore I got onto my MX3 and downloaded the new Music app.
Only the icon has remained like it is, but definitely not the UI.
It seems to be very MIUI/iOS inspired, giving it a clean and sorted look.
What came directly to my attention was the improved transculent status bar. It might be discussable, but it looks like Meizu is trying its own implementation of Material design.
Here a few more screenshots:
Some might wonder what this “radar” icon is useful for. As I understood it right it is searching for similar songs in your playlist.
My personal opinion is that Meizu is going a right way with its new Flyme UI, however the only concern I have is the rather bad optimization of Flyme. Even though this app is still beta it performed quite well on a MX3 with Flyme 3. However engineers and developers proved several times to be able to ruin their own work. Hopefully this won’t be the case and we will be able to use a properly working Flyme 5.
