Meizu MX5 was announced last June as the new flagship of the company and, after one year, has been a high-level smartphone (even if it is no longer the most powerful and equipped) but at a very attractive price. It is this difference which could justify a purchase even in these times.
In nearly 12 months, the price of Meizu MX5 has dropped a lot, but are the flash offers Asian shop that make it unique: Tomtop sells 200 Meizu MX5 less than € 200 (exactly: 197.99 euro), almost 100 Euros less than the introductory price and much lower (30-50 euro) compared to the price proposed by other Chinese shops. Shipping is not free, but it costs only 8 Euros, and on balance is a real bargain. If you kept an eye on this smartphone a few months ago, now is your chance to buy it.
