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.
