Directly from Beijing we had one of the earliest Meizu Pro 6 available after the presentation and, of course, we could not fail to try it now. The news does not lack either aesthetic level, both hardware and software. As you know in fact that Pro 6 supports force touch or, like Meizu calls it, 3D Press. Let’s find out all the details in the full review.
Hardware, Materials and ergonomics:
the Pro 6, unlike its predecessor, has a more compact size and a more particular. On an aesthetic level the device is really very pleasant and made with great quality materials. 70.8 x 7.25 x 147.7 mm sizes that host a 5.2 inches and weighs 160 grams well-distributed.
2560 mah battery with support for fast charging; complete the hardware 4 GB of Ram and 32 GB of expandable memory. To move this Terminal is the processor Helio X25 decacore. Don’t miss the slot that accommodates dual SIM both Dwarf and the Home key format called M Touch that complements the fingerprint sensor and also has several features, like going back with a twist and push you back to home.
the fingerprint sensor will record up to 5 prints with different angles but recognizes your finger quickly but it is not foolproof.
The photographic industry is characterized by a 21MP sensor rear, Sony IMX 230 with Aperture f 2.2 10 LED flash and auto focus laser and dual color, before we have instead a 5MP sensor
5.2-inch Super Amoled display has a pixel density of 423 ppi and diamond array pixels. A unit that meets in all respects: good brightness, visibility in the Sun just as much alive but not overly saturated colors, and excellent viewing angles.
Always remains the possibility to adjust the color temperature and choose from the various display modes with more colors or dynamic loads.
Adjustable Touch touch responsive and Force with three levels of intensity of pressure. 3D Press which is available for most apps and third-party applications will soon have the SDK for development. There is finally also the notification LED.
Drums, Audio and reception:
The rechargeable battery is certainly the most controversial. Surprisingly, however, allowed us to make 4 hours of screen on but take advantage of energy-saving methods (intelligent adjusting background app or advanced use only calls and messages with simplified UI). A risolutato really surprise that shows how the new Helio X25 ‘s thrifty consuming very little on stand-by.
Very good reception and switching from one SIM to the other is quick enough. 2 g/3 g and 4 g networks are supported but lacks the gang to 800 MHz and full connectivity: Wi-Fi sector, NFC and Bluetooth and assisted GPS. Hi-Fi audio 2.0: very good quality both as a volume as equalization. If we want to be picky about the bass is slightly lacking.
On this Pro 6 we Android Marshmallow 6.0 and 5.2 Flyme interface translated into Italian and the Google Pack installer to install the Play Store and Google services. The launcher has a menu of applications and programs are located in the various pages of the home along with any Widget. Icons can be moved in batch mode by clicking on a Home screen and selecting “arrange icons”;
This Smart Touch button in accessibility and new application Toolbox, which includes a number of features such as a flashlight, compass, mirror the ruler and the magnifying glass.Inevitable security app to keep the phone ” healthy ” cleaning up unnecessary files and by clearing your ram. Within this app there are also energy-saving systems such as smart mode which limits the consumption data in the background and the more advanced way that preserves the key functions of calls and messages.
Absent Flyme account yet with its store of the themes that they say will be reinstated with future updates.
Camera and Multimedia:
The rear camera is from 21 megapixels with autofocus, f/2.2 focal laser aperture and flash 10 LED Ring (Sony IMX230)
While the 5 MP front camera f/2.0 (OmniVision 5695).
Despite the pictures sample taken during the presentation were excellent, in fact I found a valid but hardly surprising that undoubtedly cams. Macros are great obviously and the focus is very fast, as well as detailed pictures of day and with plenty of light with very natural colors.But we’re not there yet in the night photos, those without flash so to speak, because they always note the loss of detail and video noise. The front camera makes good pictures and discrete turns Full HD video.
Videos shot with the main camera, remain in line with the performance of photo: so good but not excellent and at other top of the line more noble. The ability to shoot slow motion video or GIF and time laps.
Terminal performance with respect to the gaming and generally do not disappoint. Maximum pleasantness of use and details of the game Asphalt 8 very nice display. No problem in the reproduction of sample in 4 k.
My doubts were only partially resolved. First, because despite the battery takes longer than expected is still a drawback to this Pro 6 which could integrate some mAh without major compromises in terms of design and thickness. Also non-expandable memory is a sin.
Strange finally placing since the dimensions make this Pro 6 ideally over a successor to the MX5 MX6.
