Just less than a week ago, Meizu had released an all-new smartphone in their M Series, the Meizu M5s. At a glance, people will mistake it for m5 due to its size. However, unlike the previous one, the M5s has a metal unibody, giving it a plus when it comes to weight and overall look. However, experts are also quick to point out one flaw: the smartphone’s chipset is a level lower than what is expected.
Having a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display, the M5s features a Cortex-A53 CPU, which contains eight individual cores containing 1.3GHz clock speed. The 3GB RAM is definitely impressive despite its price and it applies on both 16 and 32GB internal storage variants. It also contains the Mali tri-core graphics processor, which is well-known for its good performance and power conservation features.
People with past experience with Meizu don’t need to worry whether the Google Apps will be available for installation. Right now, the M5s will prompt you install an app named Google Installer. Just as its name suggests, the app lets you install Google apps just like what you do in available android in the western market. Experts also point out that the camera shots from the smartphone are also impressive.
Despite all of the advantages that are listed above, experts point out that its performance will not be readily acceptable for playing games with high graphics because of its chipset. This is due to the fact that the chipset doesn’t support Open GL ES 3.2, Vulcan and Open CL 2.0, which are needed in order to play HD games smoothly. In such a case, experts strongly recommend that you opt for another model designed for such. However, if you’re not fond of playing games and are only looking for a good smartphone, having Meizu M5s in your market list is definitely a great idea.
