Xiaomi Mi 4 vs. Meizu MX4, the Chinese giants

Two of the most prominent smartphone maker in China battle it out in the flagship category, each sporting the top chipsets from Qualcomm and Mediatek — the Meizu MX4 and the Xiaomi Mi 4.

The reason why we’re pitting them against each other is because of one simple fact — both handsets, despite of their gargantuan hardware specifications, are priced at less than half the SRP of most other flagship smartphones of other global brands.

Based on the hardware configuration alone, we try to stack one against the other and tally the points.

Realme Philippines

Xiaomi Mi 4:
* Slightly higher pixel density
* Has bigger 3GB RAM
* Has larger 8MP sensor front camera

Meizu MX4:
* Has larger 20.7MP rear camera
* Slightly bigger display size
* Significantly lower starting price

While we cannot categorically determine whether the Mediatek MK6595 with its octa-core processor is better than the quad 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801, Mediatek’s 47,233 Antutu score for the MK6595 breaks the record of any chip we’ve seen before.

It’s a close fight, that’s one thing we can agree on. Perhaps, if they’re too close to each other, the final determining factor might be the design and form factor.

Nakakatawa nmn daw comment nung una. Neither phones have definitive advantage over the other. Personal preference nalang ang basehan, hntay nalang ng review.

Correct me if im wrong, pero i think meizu is dual sim? That would be a big factor too

Processor, micro sd slot, battery and not to mention the future availability. Mi4 wins.

Bigger display doesn’t necessarily mean it is better. Depende syempre sa user kung prefer nya ang bigger display o hindi.

Ang purpose ng 8 core sa mobile ang 4 core na 1.7 ang una magagamit kung madami ka na apps na naka open at mabigat na apps like games saka gagana yon 4 core na 2.2 magswitch sila ng processor na magagamit ganyan po ang process ng octa-core na processor. Kung ayaw mo maniwala try mo magresearch at magbasa.

Processor, expandable memory, battery. Probably we can also include future availability. Mi4 wins.

Panalo MI4, ayos mx4 octacore pero IMO but ko pa kekelanganin ang octa kung kaya naman trabahuin ng quad?. Sa spec panalo tlga Mi4 tska guaranteed na regular ung update/support ng xiaomi. 3 gig ram pa un ang importante for multi task. and battery approve! half shot lng sa mx4. Regarding naman s processing, 4 processor sapat na, 8 processor? mehhh.. anong apps b need ng 8 processor? wla..nagsayang lng ng extra processor, kaartehan papainitin lng nyan ang device mo.. siguro 5-10yrs after bka need n natin 8 processor, sa ngayon applicable lng 8 processor for pc/laptop..sa mobile? sus wag nah.. gawa muna kayo ng apps na pang heavy duty un bka need na natin 8 core..

uhhhmmm.. big.little po ang configuration ni mtk6595 hindi po tulad ni 6592 na true octacore. kapag po intensive yung app, yung may mas mataas na clockrate ang mag proprocess and yung isa naman otherwise. kaya parang 2 quadcore lang yun. hindi talaga octacore. kaya siguro ok lang na ganyan ang configuration ng mga SOCs ngayon kung wala namang “intesive” apps na mag papatakbo sa 8cores at once.

di mo alam big.LITTLE kaya nasabi mo di mo kailangan 8 cores.

oh man how i wish you could just simply shut up.
let alone your first line tell your point to save yourself from…further embarrassment…
but this was a little too late tho.
you can start asking yourself why and search for what the man above me tried telling you.
