Chinese smartphones gained huge popularity in the last couple of years and manufacturer like Meizu isn’t an exception. Last year, Meizu released their new entry-level smartphone Meizu M5. Meizu M5 isn’t a great smartphone, to make it clear, but for the price of $141, it works well. It comes with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) installed out of the box, and when speaking of hardware, there’s nothing exceptional. An Octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU is what’s expected and Mali-T860MP2 GPU could be replaced with some of the Adreno counterparts. With its 2 GB (or 3 GB) of RAM, however, Meizu M5 offers a good experience for the price.

Now, camera. For the phone of this price, Meizu M5 has a pretty good camera. Here we have 13 MP camera, capable of recording full HD videos at 30 fps- not bad. The fingerprint scanner is also here, and it’s a great addition to this low-entry smartphone; definitely a highlight of this device.

    Meizu M5 isn't that bad

    On the first look, Meizu M5 looks like more expensive smartphone but it's really cheap. It has an HD display and comes with octa-core CPU and 2/3GB of RAM which is really good for this price. I recommend it for those on tight budget.
