So my shiny new MX4 finally arrived.
I can say, in terms of build quality, it’s a masterpiece again, however I feel that MX3 was one nail better. The display is gorgeous, the new camera takes a lot better pictures and the loudspeaker is great.
Meizu, how could you mess up like that?
The new LED is just sad. It does not light the same was across the whole ring, resulting in something I’d call just not nice, nor quality. And as it does not have any other color, I really don’t see a reason why does this have to be such a flaw, when on the MX3 it was just gorgeous, and the blue lining was just a piece of art in design.
Absention of NFC is something I don’t understand at all, as I’d use it with my Denon Envaya, but I can easily live without that one.
What I can’t stand is the new Flyme 4.0. I mean, are you crazy Meizu? Why is everything SO HUGE, I’m not a horse nor a giant, I don’t need buttons that are twice as fat as my finger is. MX3 had a godly DPI ratio, and I’d say it was one of the best sides of Flyme 3.0 overall - because it really looked good, was very very good to use and I had so muuuuuuuch content on my screen. Now I get less with even bigger screen, that’s just… dumb. I can’t find any explanation for this. Not to mention how disgusting it looks.
Also I don’t know why everything is white and I just f**king cannot change it. I have a black phone, and everything on the screen is just forced to be white. It doesn’t look good, again, and I don’t really know why didn’t you include any choice or why didn’t you make it generic - black, as it was on the Flyme 3.0.
There are many more things I don’t really understand in the new Flyme 4.0. Like - why did you remove the shortcuts buttons and the brightness slider from the multitasking bar? I was using it every day multiple times, and I swear I wasn’t the only one exactly.
And just look at those settings menu… I have a 5,4" screen and I have to slide to find 2 more buttons… that’s just absurd…
All in all, I was expecting a lot lot more…
