MEIZU Ratings

Best Meizu smartphones

The Chinese manufacturer Meizu from year to year produces more and more interesting gadgets. Which of the smartphones of this company in 2019 can be considered the best?

Meizu very quickly crossed the path from Chinese know-how to real competitor to world-famous manufacturers. In Russia, Meizu smartphones were doomed to popularity, because they exactly meet the requirements that domestic users impose on mobile technology - a nice design at minimal cost .

In the article, we will talk about Meizu's product lines and its best smartphones belonging to different price segments.

What lines of smartphones does Meizu offer in 2019?

For 2019, the range of Meizu smartphones is divided into several lines:

  • M. This line is the most extensive. A common feature of all gadgets related to it is the excellent price-performance ratio. In terms of the cost, M-line devices do not exceed the “threshold” of 20 thousand rubles, however, in terms of functionality, they are not able to compete with flagships.
  • X. Image line, which replaced the MX line. For the time being, it includes only one smartphone, one for sure will be updated with new models with a unique impressive design.
  • Pro - the last flagship line. Pro devices have always been considered musical, the latest models have also become killer in performance.

Meizu also has a “digital” line that has become the flagship. Devices included in this line, instead of names are assigned numerical designations (for example, 15 Plus, 16).

But which of the smartphones listed lines stand out against the others?


Budget

Meizu m5c

  • Chipset: 4-core MediaTek MT6737, 1.3 GHz clock speed
  • Screen: 5 inches, HD resolution
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Built-in storage : 16 GB

Price : from 6 250 rubles

Of course, the Meizu M5c is not a champion in performance - and the unique design of the user will not be able to please, because it is made of plastic. However, you need to understand that the model M5c is designed for other purposes - it is a typical "workhorse" with a rather capacious battery and good cameras. Meizu's “state employee” is ideally suited for the role of a substitution - when by the evening the expensive iPhone is on its last breath, this device will help out and allow the user to stay connected.

Advantages :

  • Affordable price.
  • Many options for coloring body.
  • Large capacity battery.
  • Support two sim cards.
  • Front camera with 18 filters for editing.

Disadvantages :

  • Performance is very mediocre.
  • The body, although made of polycarbonate, still does not seem durable.

With capacious battery

Meizu M6 Note

  • Chipset: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625
  • Screen: 5.5 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 4000 mAh
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Built-in storage : 32 GB

Price : from 10 300 rubles

Meizu M6 Note domestic thematic portals chorused the praises, calling it the best, which the Chinese manufacturer was honored with. This opinion is confirmed by the level of sales abroad - on the first day over 200 thousand M6 Note devices were sold.

The main advantage of the device is a capacious 4000 mAh battery. According to the manufacturers, milliamperes will last for 10 hours of continuous gameplay or 34 hours of video viewing in FullHD-resolution - that is, for a couple of seasons of your favorite movie show. An important feature of the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor - before Meizu only completed smartphones with MTK chipsets.

Advantages :

  • Large battery that supports fast charging .
  • High-performance graphics processor Adreno 506.
  • Front camera with a resolution of 16 megapixels.
  • Sony's main camera with a wide aperture.
  • Support Arcsoft algorithm that allows you to impose the effect of bokeh.

with a giant screen

Meizu x8

  • Processor : 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, 2.2 GHz
  • Screen : 6.15 inches, resolution 2220 × 1080
  • Cameras (main / front) : 12 megapixels + 5 megapixels / 20 megapixels
  • Memory (RAM / integrated) : 4 GB / 64 GB
  • Battery Capacity : 3210 mAh

Price : from 19 990 rubles

X8 is a new product from Meizu, which appeared in Russia in early 2019. The smartphone is remarkable not only because it is the first Meizu device with “mono-brow” - in addition, it is the most affordable gadget with Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. This chipset, for a second, takes the second position in power after the flagship Snapdragon 845. Actively showing off the processor, Meizu X8 is positioning as a smartphone for gamers. However, we want to note another advantage of the device.

The smartphone has a magnificent giant screen with an outlandish 18.5: 9 aspect ratio, occupying almost 90% of the frontal surface. There is no AMOLED matrix, but even though the display is made using IPS technology, the colors are very clear and saturated, the picture is realistic, the viewing angles are maximum. It's nice that the screens of such high quality began to appear on models that do not belong to the premium segment.

Advantages :

  • High performance - any games will “fly”.
  • Large and high-quality IPS-screen.
  • The availability of versions with different amounts of RAM (up to 6 GB).
  • Dual autofocus on the back of the camera.
  • Powerful front camera with a resolution of 20 megapixels.

Disadvantages :

  • Flyme branded shell - "an amateur."
  • Autonomy is not the best - despite the fact that the battery capacity is quite high.

  • Screen: 5.2 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

Price : from 20 990 rubles

Meizu Pro 7 was the company's flagship in 2017. Despite the fact that many experts call the additional feature on the rear panel as the main feature of this gadget, its key advantage is the built-in audio chip Cirrus Logic CS43130, which provides a dynamic range of 130 dB and excellent sound quality (32 Beats / 384 kHz). The chip has a NOS (Non-Oversampling) emulation mode - when this mode is activated, the music in the headphones starts to sound as “lively” and “lamplike”, that even the most meticulous audiophile will not remain disappointed.

Advantages :

  • Great sound.
  • A screen that can boast a contrast level of 10,000: 1.
  • A powerful processor that allows the user to play 3D games without hanging.
  • Dual camera - one of the sensors made by Sony.
  • The presence of a fingerprint scanner .

Disadvantages :

  • No NFC Module - Android Pay to Meizu Pro 7 owners will be unavailable.
  • A small battery capacity (for such a filling).
  • Lack of moisture protection.

Meizu Note 8

  • Processor : 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632
  • Screen : 6 inches, resolution 2160 × 1080
  • Cameras (main / front) : 12 megapixels + 5 megapixels / 8 megapixels
  • Memory (RAM / integrated) : 4 GB / 64 GB
  • Battery Capacity : 3600 mAh

Price : from 13 550 rubles ()

Meizu M6 Note turned out to be a real hit - it is not surprising that the manufacturer decided to continue updating its Note-line. After the “six”, the “eight” came out immediately - it seems that Meizu believes in the “curse of Note 7”.

Note 8 "not enough stars from the sky," but he has no obvious flaws either. The smartphone became faster than its “predecessor” (by replacing the 625th Snapdragon with the 632nd), got a screen with an 18: 9 aspect ratio and a capacious battery. The main advantage of the new model, perhaps, can be called a dual camera. Despite the fact that her resolution is not the highest, the pictures are clear and with good detail. Both modules have an aperture of f / 1.9, so that even in low light conditions, the smartphone takes very good pictures.

Advantages :

  • 6-inch screen with narrow frames and an aspect ratio of 18: 9.
  • Smart chipset, made on 14-nm process technology.
  • Durable metal housing.
  • A variety of color options (there is, for example, a model in lilac color).
  • Aperture camera with modules from SONY.
  • Powerful battery.

Disadvantages :

  • Does not support NFC.

the best of the best

Meizu 16th

  • Processor : 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, clock speed 2.8 GHz
  • Screen : 6 inches, resolution 2160 × 1080
  • Cameras (main / front) : 20 megapixels + 12 megapixels / 20 megapixels
  • Memory (RAM / integrated) : 6 GB / 64 GB
  • Battery Capacity : 3010 mAh

Price : from 30 290 rubles ()

It seems that Meizu overestimates itself when it releases a smartphone for such a price. Add 10 thousand rubles - and you can safely go for the Samsung Galaxy S9 . However, experts as one claim that the price of the Meizu 16 th is perfectly reasonable, since the smartphone is the ideal flagship.

The design of the device is one of its main advantages. Samsung's widescreen 6-inch display occupies almost 90% of the frontal surface, the frame is only near the lower and upper ends. With its huge screen, the smartphone does not look like a “shovel” - Meizu did a great job on the ergonomics of the device. Model 16 th is not like any other of those that are now on sale.

The functional model is also impressive, but in terms of performance, the smartphone is exactly included in the list of the best on the market. Meizu 16 th sell with two options for bundling RAM - 6 and 8 GB. The 8 GB version looks like a future, as a model with 6 GB and a Snapdragon 845 processor can easily handle any task that the user puts in front of it.

Advantages :

  • Premium original design.
  • Samsung AMOLED COF display.
  • Large amount of RAM.
  • Sony camera aperture f / 1.8.
  • Dual speakers.

Disadvantages :

  • High cost - is the Meizu brand strong enough for a company to sell smartphones at that price?

Conclusion

Meizu is rapidly gaining momentum, wanting to prove that it deserves a place in the cohort of the best mobile phone manufacturers. Due to the fact that the company's catalog of smartphones is extensive, each user can find in it a gadget that meets his personal requirements and wealth. At the same time, Meizu adheres to an unusually reasonable pricing policy, without forcing buyers to overpay for the brand - what other major manufacturers sin.

Excluded from the selection

Meizu u20

  • Chipset: 8-core MediaTek Helio P10
  • Screen: 5.5 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 3260 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Built-in storage : 16 GB

Price : from 8 869 rubles

In 2016, Meizu presented, perhaps, the cutest smartphone of the budget segment. U20 compares favorably with competing models in that it is made exclusively of premium materials: the front and rear surfaces are covered with glass, the metal frame protects the sidewall. Although the Meizu U20 is also glassy, ​​you can't call it fragile - the frontal edge is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, so the user can not worry that small scratches and chips will appear on it.

Advantages :

  • Attractive "glass" design.
  • FullHD-display, made by full lamination technology and capable of transmitting shades very reliably.
  • Powerful 13 megapixel camera with dual flash.
  • The presence of a fingerprint sensor.
  • Oleophobic coating of the front face, due to which fingerprints are not left on the screen.

Disadvantages :

  • Combined slot - you have to choose between the second Sim and flash drive.
  • There is no NFC - which means there is no possibility to make contactless payments.

Meizu Pro 7 Plus

  • Screen: 5.7 inches, resolution 2560 × 1440
  • Battery: 3500 mAh
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

Price : from 26 590 rubles

The question may arise: why not Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus unite in one group? But the fact is that by some characteristics the “plus” model is significantly superior to the usual one. In Pro 7 Plus, the battery is more capacious, and the screen is larger, but its main feature is the chipset.

The Meizu Pro 7 Plus is the first smartphone to receive a MTK Helio X30 processor, 10-core and made on 10-nm technology. The key to speed and energy efficiency of the gadget is the RAM: “on board” 6 GB of the most modern “RAM” LPDDR4x. The Power VR 7XTP-MP4 video accelerator is responsible for the graphic component - thanks to it, the user can enjoy 4K video without any problems. Meizu Pro 7 Plus will be a great gift for gamers - even in the most demanding games FPS will stay at level 60.

Advantages :

  • Excellent performance.
  • Dual 12-megapixel camera that allows you to take photos with excellent contrast and low noise.
  • Additional screen - it can be used to control the player.
  • Availability of USB Type-C 3.1 port.
  • Large 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution.

Disadvantages :

  • Missing NFC.
  • The price in the official store and at large retailers is too high (more than 40 thousand rubles).

(in the photo the alleged design of the MX7 smartphone)

  • Chipset: 10-core MediaTek Helio P25, 2.3 GHz clock frequency
  • Screen: 5.5 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • RAM: 4/6 GB
  • Built-in storage : 32/64 GB

Price : from 16 000 rubles (on pre-order)

Meizu very long warmed interest in the new smartphone line MX, which was supposed to be officially presented on October 11, 2017. However, the presentation did not happen - now there are rumors that the MX7 will appear in the spring of 2018.

Why is the MX7 so expect? Insiders claimed that Meizu managed what Apple, Samsung, and other major market players could not do - hide the fingerprint sensor under the screen. Judging by the teaser image, which appeared from the Internet, the scanner should be located closer to the center of the display.

However, some users believe that the information about the dactyloscope under the screen is just a fake stuffing for the sake of information hype. This point of view has the right to life - it is suspicious because the teaser was not posted in any official Meizu blog. However, if the Chinese manufacturer really managed to get ahead of the grandees of the mobile electronics market, this will definitely allow it to reach a new level and significantly increase sales in the world.
