Description

The Meizu M5 comes equipped with a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The display itself is covered with 2.5D curved glass, and that's going to be your home to interacting with Meizu's Android-based Flyme UI. Powering the OS is the MediaTek MT6750 (64-bit octa-core processor that's clocked at 1.5GHz), and a 3,070 mAh battery should help to ensure that you've got enough juice to get you through a full day of solid use. Couple all of that with a 13MP rear camera with phase-detection autofocus, 5MP selfie camera up front, and a hybrid SIM tray that can house either two SIM cards or one SIM card and one microSD card for memory expansion, and you're looking at a pretty complete package.

  • Resolution:
    • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 282 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
