Meizu Pro 6 Plus
Hello! Guys, Today, I’m going to take a look at Meizu Pro 6 Plus review. Now, first you notice about the Meizu Pro 6 Plus is very good build quality, as its lite weight feels very solid and the same time looks gorgeous. Pro 6 Plus is a stunning device to behold and feel all the sides are curved making for a very good handling. So, let’s find out-
It’s an all-metal unibody, beautiful and ergonomic. It’s also made of softer metal than most other metal phones. So it has a very nice feel in the hand that also means that it’s quite slippery though, so you may want to consider a case. Regardless the craftsmanship here is impressive. Meizu states that the body assembly process alone takes 30 steps and 150 hours to complete and that amount of effort definitely pays off. It’s the keen attention to detail that really counts and makes this a high-end design at a mid-range price.
We also really enjoy Meizu M—touch navigation system instead of the three key layouts that many of us are used to the Pro 6 Plus has a single tactile key that you tap to go back and press to go home and you just swipe up from another side to access the redesigned slimy six multitasking menus. The front key also serves as a fast and accurate fingerprint reader. It’s not as fast as some another phone like the OnePlus 3T but it’s pretty fast.
The Pro 6 Plus redeemed its name with a 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display. It’s a considerable improvement from the Pro 6 and it’s one of the best display that you can find at this Price. Colors are punchy not to oversaturated, the contrast is excellent and sunlight readability is decent. The display makes everything from reading articles to watching televisions shows an absolute pleasure. The slightly larger size also helps everything feel more immersive.
Meizu has implemented 3D press technology with the Pro 6 Plus which works very much like Apple’s 3D touch. It only works with select Meizu Apps though so it’s not terribly useful day—to-day.
The cameras on the Meizu Pro 6 Plus look promising on paper. There’s a Sony IMAX 386 12-megapixel F/2.0 rear camera with laser autofocus for access OIS in a Dual tone LED flash. In practice, The rear camera performs quite well, general color reproduction is excellent not too oversaturated but still pretty punchy.
If you take a closer look images are sharp and detailed. Displays a lower megapixel count dynamic range is great. The camera balances the highlights and shadows and most shots very well allowing for more realistic photos. As expected it’s all short and low-light situations images are sharper, colors become muted and digital noise is noticeable.
The Front-facing 5-megapixel F/2.0 camera performs about as well as expected and we like how beauty mode doesn’t overdo it with skin softness. You can record 4K video at 30fps with the Meizu Pro 6 Plus but the actual video quality is only about average.
Processor, Memory & Performance: –
Under the hood, we have a Samsung Exynos 8890 Octa-Core processor which has been used in devices like the Galaxy S7. The base metal of the Pro 6 Plus is underclocked at 2.0 gigahertz. So, if you want performance more similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 you need to pay a boot more for the higher-end model which is clocked at 2.3 gigahertz.
Meizu sent us a base model which didn’t do too well in benchmarks but performs absolutely fine in everyday use. We’re sure that the 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, new FS 2.0 storage also helped with that too. Importantly Meizu makes up for where the base model lacks and hardware capability with special software optimization. With Flyme6.0 Meizu is introducing one mind AI which learns user habits to better manage memory and decrease predicted app load time.
As expected, the Pro 6 Plus an Unlocked Dual SIM smartphone. Unfortunately, though it won’t work with 4G LTE in the United States Well, not intended for the US market, it is a pretty big drawback. Another drawback for global users is that although the hardware does include support for NFC and a Heart rate monitor. Both of these features were disabled by the global software at the time of producing this review. These should be switched on soon with a software update though.
The key selling point of the Meizu Pro 6 Plus is the Software, it ships with Android 6.0.1 marshmallow but its mazes slimy skin that really makes the experience unique. Put simply Meizu Flyme 6 may just be the best Android skin available today. I personally even preferred over stock Android which may some surprising but the clean design, performance enhancing, AI innovative features and overall polish just make this phone software a pleasure to use. Meizu has redesign Flyme6.0 to be more colorful. You can see this everywhere you look from the various screen of the security app to the fun animations implemented throughout the system.
The most glaring drawback Flyme is mazes lack of an official relationship with google because of this Meizu can’t install on their smartphones like other manufacturers can. So, they rely on unauthorized methods instead. You might also take issue with the update strategy instead of updating two new versions of Android, Meizu updates their Flyme skin with new features before or shortly after to stock Android.
The internal speaker on the side of the Pro 6 Plus is pretty good. It’s loud enough for general use but if it distorted at higher volumes. What’s more significant is the Hi-fi audio setup. There are a 32-bit DAC and amp and the Pro 6 Plus still includes a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Amazing Pro 6 Plus is powered by a 3400 mAh battery. We noticed a significant improvement in standby usage after upgrading to a Beta version of Flyme 6.0. We were only averaging around 3 and half hours of screen on time with Flyme 5 but after upgrading to Flyme 6 Beta, we were getting around 6 hours of screen on time. When you need to charge the Pro 6 Plus you can do so with the M-charge 60 watt fast charging.
Overall, like many competing options the Meizu Pro 6 Plus offers great hardware. It’s in the software, however, where the Pro 6 Plus inches ahead of its competitors. With the Pro 6 Plus you’re getting a great camera, wonderful display, excellent performance and of course, fresh and innovative software. Well, there are certainly some claws the NFC and heart rate monitor are disabled in the global software.
Google apps support is unofficial and the Phone lacks support for us 4G LTE. The Meizu Pro 6 Plus offers an exceptional experience for its target audience. If you’re a hardcore Meizu fan or are just looking to try something different the Pro 6 Plus is a great option.
