It has been one year since our previous review of an Ubuntu Phone, namely examining the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition, and the time has come for us to take a look at the best handset powered by Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system that you can buy right now, the Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition.
When we reviewed the Meizu MX4 last year in July, we told you that it was the most powerful Ubuntu Phone on the market. Well, that’s not the case anymore because Meizu is always on top of things, releasing new smartphones, with the most recent technologies. Unfortunately, not all of its phones are offered as an Ubuntu Edition, but the existing ones are among the best on the market, and not only among those powered by Ubuntu.
As usual, we’ll be making an analysis both of the device itself and the Ubuntu Touch operating system, even if you’ve probably read by now several reviews of Meizu PRO 5 with Android. First, a few general specs of the phone. It comes with a Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa-Core processor and a MALI T760 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), a 5.7-inch re-tuned delta cool color AMOLED display with Full HD (1920×1080) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 3GB RAM, a 21.16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP selfie camera, and 32GB internal storage.
