Today we bring you a fairly interesting comparison, between two brands that dominate the Chinese market: the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x vs Meizu M5S. We already saw how the Meizu M5s has been officially presented, seeing all its features and other details, seeing that it will become, now that Meizu does sell officially in other countries, in one of the best options in the mid-range, so yes or Yes, we have to compare it with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x, Xiaomi ‘s next mid-range mobile.


Both uses USB charging standard port, Meizu M5S uses the anti-open screws.

Both support dual SIM card, dual standby, but different size of sim card slot.

In antenna line, both use similar T type craftsmanship, and three-step metal jointing body.

In the details of the side button, they are different, and Meizu M5S side button has CNC grooving, which is more beautiful than Redmi Note 4X.

Meizu M5S supports fingerprint scanner on its home button, but Redmi Note 4X with fingerprint ID on the back.


We see how neither of the two terminals stands out, since each follows the design line of the company without innovating in anything. This aspect is always important, since we want to choose a terminal that enamore, but neither will stand out. In the case of the Meizu M5s, we find a metal body quite similar to the whole range of Meizu, with a screen of 5.2 inches and a home button on the front that will also function as a fingerprint reader. In the case of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x, the screen grows up to 5.5 inches, with IPS technology, like the Meizu, and a metal body, but customizable, because we can choose between different colors in the back. This time, the fingerprint reader is located at the back, under the camera. Both terminals have a FullHD resolution, but the Meizu M5s has the 2.5D technology that is both fashionable now and it can become a differential point, depending on the person. In the section of the camera, we see that the Meizu terminal has a 13 megapixel rear camera with f / 2.2 aperture, while the Redmi Note 4x has the same megapixels, but with an f / 2.0 aperture. In this aspect we can not see who is the winner until we see the potential of each camera and the photographic sensor they carry.

It is rare to see that in the Chinese midrange there are two different processor brands, but yes, now each brand has decided to bet on different processors in these price ranges.

In both cases we found Android 6, but in the Meizu M5s is FlymeOS , a layer of customization that still needs to improve, while in Xiaomi we find MIUI, one of the best layers of customization currently on the market. The two are very different from what we can find now in the mid-range terminals.
