We often ask ourselves a critical question. For what can we set our feet on a market where big companies invest huge amount of money persuading people to buy their products? Or why there are people who choose us? To get an answer, we have to make analysis. The most effective way is to compare our products with big brands, and we have chosen Meizu MX5 as the counterpart. Bit to bit, everything becomes clear.
Ulefone Be Touch 3 is officially priced at USD199.99, but now there is a promotional campaign where it is sold incredibly cheaper. Meizu MX5 16GB version is worth at least USD 350, almost 2 times of the Be Touch 3.
Both Ulefone Be Touch 3 and Meizu MX5 have adopted mainstream design language. The Ulefone device is equipped with the 2.5D curved glass and metal frame, while Meizu has a metal unibody and narrow margin.
Both Ulefone Be Touch 3 and Meizu MX5 are equipped with front fingerprint scanner, which can recognize at most 5 finger IDs. The MX5 Touch ID can be used for online payment, but only in China with Alipay. That aside, this function makes sense only as a convenient screen and app lock, without which, you’ll feel very uncomfortable if you ever used it.
Meizu has been trying to attract eyes by flaunting a 5.5-inch Full HD Samsung AMOLED display this year, but the yellowish color tone and grainy visual impression have widely been blamed among users around the world. Some reviewers even tell people not to consider AMOLED display unless it is 2K resolution. On the other side, Ulefone Be Touch 3’s 1080P IPS-LCD display is sharp enough with the pixel density of 401PPI, while its white color is way whiter, comparable to iPhone 6s.
Ulefone Be Touch 3 has employed the 13MP Sony IMX214 COMS for its back camera. From the neutral color tendency on sample photos, you can see we conducted sound optimization for photography. The 20.7MP Sony IMX220 camera on Meizu MX5 no doubt offered more details, However, Meizu seems not able to optimize this mighty component well enough and the photos taken with the MX5 turns out like painting.
You can’t imagine how Flyme UI is popular among Chinese youngsters. Yes it is neat, smooth and resourceful. But when it comes beyond the border, something goes wrong. Compatibility problems with Google services have affected Meizu’s international awareness throughout the MX4 and MX5. By comparison, Ulefone insists on the stock android 5.1 ROM which is expected to be more friendly to overseas users. BTW, Ulefone has add an optional launcher, U-launcher to be specific, in an effort to improve user experiences.
MTK6753 is absolutely no rival to MTK6795. If you are a player of blockbuster games, MX5 will be your choice between the 2 for sure. But in most cases, the power of a chipset is far from fully unleashed, while MTK6753, which engines Ulefone Be Touch 3, talented enough to deal with average functions. And from the video, you can see the be touch 3 is basically OK with demanding games.
Both Ulefone Be Touch 3 and Meizu MX5 support quick charge, off-screen gestures, Miracast, and Bluetooth 4.0.
