Meizu is a highly-respected & well-known brvà in Trung Quốc, & its recognition is well-deserved with some of the devices it puts out there for consumers. One of the upcoming devices, the Meizu M6 lưu ý has been in our possession for the past week so we had some time khổng lồ check it out before it goes on sale later this fall, and right off the bat, there was a lot khổng lồ love sầu about the phone, from its specs & features to the overall user interface. While not your typical software for Android as it features Meizu’s FlymeOS, if you’re a tín đồ of these Chinese brvà UIs then you will probably love sầu Meizu’s take on Android, as the M6 lưu ý features its latest version of Flyme & comes with some nifty hardware like a dual rear camera module, in addition to lớn keeping some beloved features like the 3.5mm audio port. Let’s take a closer look at the M6 Note và see what it has khổng lồ offer, & how it stacks up against devices like the Meizu M5c, a more entry-cấp độ phone that we reviewed baông xã at the kết thúc of June.

Specs

*


While Meizu does make some high-over devices, it also makes devices aimed at the mid-range & entry-level markets and the M6 Note is one that sits purely in the mid-range space. It features a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with a resolution of 19đôi mươi x 1080, it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snaprồng 625 processor, và it comes with 3GB of RAM with an Adreno 506 GPU, so it’s more than capable of handling just about any task you throw at it, at least on paper. It comes with 32GB of internal storage space which is a bit lower than most phones these days as even some budget devices are coming with 64GB of storage, but 32GB is still a fair amount of space for anyone who is an average user. In addition khổng lồ the 32GB of internal storage, the device also supports expandable storage via a microSD card up to 128GB just in case the 32GB is not enough.

Another downside is that the device is only running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, well after Nougat had been released to lớn most phones & the M6 chú ý isn’t even available yet. That said, hopefully Meizu has plans lớn release a Nougat update or even an Oreo update at some point in the near future after the device’s launch so users aren’t so far behind on software. The dual camera module on the back consists of a 12-megapixel sensor và a 5-megapixel sensor, while the front camera is a 16-megapx sensor, so the phone should take great selfies & decent images with the main camera. It’s powered by a 4,000mAh non-removable batteryvà uses a microUSB charging port, so while it may not charge as fast as a device with USB Type-C, the battery capađô thị should last you a while. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the front & supports Bluetooth không dây 4.2 as well as Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n.

In The Box

*


There’s not much in the box with the M6 chú ý which is a bit of a departure from most Chinese điện thoại thông minh brands, but not really a departure for Meizu as it usually only packs in the essentials. That is, what you need khổng lồ use the phone và keep it charged up. In the box, you’ll find the phone itself, the charging cable, power adapter, và the SIM card ejector tool, as a well as a quichồng start guide. It’s a simple offering but you have everything you really need.

Hardware và Design

*

Meizu’s phone designs are pretty good and though some will disagree và feel lượt thích things could be improved, Meizu’s M6 Note is sleek & stylish & it feels really well-made. The phone is made from all metal as it uses a full metal unibody thiết kế, complete with chamfered edges on both the front và bachồng, và a glass display that is slightly curved (very subtly) at the edges all the way around so the glass of the display kind of melts into the edges of the toàn thân. Since the phone is made of metal, it feels more premium, though it can be a bit smooth & that means when holding it some may feel that it is a bit more slippery than if Meizu had used a polycarbonate material. Metal can also get fairly warm during intense, heavy use, though we didn’t experience that much ourselves.

At first glance, the display didn’t look lượt thích it was as sharp as a Full HD panel should be, or as sharp as it has been on other devices that have sầu FHD displays. But I quickly realized that for one, the brightness was mix lớn tự động hóa by default, and the lower brightness helped attribute the screen lớn looking lượt thích it had a lower resolution. Simply turning this tự động hóa brightness off & turning the brightness up a bit helped immensely. On top of that, the mặc định skin with the mặc định icons that Meizu has used here doesn’t really bởi the screen resolution justice as they’re flat with somewhat muted colors. This is easily fixable as you can simply swap the trang chủ screen wallpaper out, và if you want khổng lồ change the icons you can easily switch to lớn a new theme from the ones that you can piông xã up from Meizu’s theme store, or you can even install something lượt thích Nova Launcher and get access khổng lồ a ton of different inhỏ packs.


As far as color reproduction is concerned, the display showed colors nicely & viewing angles were good. Responsiveness was also good as I never had any trouble with the phone lagging from any of my touch input during interactions with the device. At 5.5 inches, the screen is big but not too big, making it feel comfortable khổng lồ hold but still allowing it lớn be quite enjoyable for things lượt thích games & watching đoạn Clip while on the go. It’s not Quad HD, but if you don’t need that, you definitely won’t be disappointed with what the Meizu M6 Note offers in the display department.

Performance

*

The M6 chú ý has been a solid performer over the past week or so and that’s just with 3GB of RAM & a mid-range processor. The thing is, the M6 cảnh báo is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, which is a pretty good CPU for the mid-range segment. Sure, Qualcomm’s flagship Snaprồng 835 CPU is better, as it should be seeing as how it’s a top-tier CPU, but Qualcomm’s mid-range processors are really good too, & it’s a good thing that Meizu chose to lớn use this CPU as it really shines through the more that you use the phone. During gameplay in games like Asphalt Streetstorm, gameplay felt rather nice và fluid and graphics were decent as well. They might have been a bit sharper with a higher-over processor but they were still pretty good. Even with the game running in the background, backing out and switching between other apps felt pretty smooth as well which was great if I ever needed to stop playing for a few moments và go vày something else on the device. The M6 cảnh báo may not look like it on paper, but it’s a fairly capable phone when it comes lớn performing your everyday tasks và then some.

Benchmarks

*

Speaking of performance, just lượt thích with every other phone đánh giá, we put the M6 lưu ý through some benchmark tests lớn see how it scored in each. We ran it through AnTuTu, Geekbench 4, and then 3DMark for graphics processing. If you’re interested in seeing those scores, you can view the gallery of screenshots from those tests just below.


In spite of my suspicions, the Meizu M6 Note actually offers decent audio for having just one speaker and coming in with a price tag of under $400 (though it isn’t officially sold in the U.S.). While I wouldn’t recommover turning up the volume nearly all the way, you can turn it up a pretty good amount without getting it distorted or sounding tinny or blown out. What’s more is that the speaker placement is on the top side when holding the phone in landscape mode with the fingerprint sensor facing your right hand. This made it so that I wasn’t actually covering the speaker up and I didn’t have to worry about it getting muffled, which is often a problem when I’m playing games on my Pixel in landscape mode unless I tweak the way that I’m holding the phone. Overall, sound was better than average và while not the best điện thoại thông minh speaker on the market it was nice, and one that most people wouldn’t be disappointed with.

Battery Life

*

With a 4,000mAh battery, you would expect the device khổng lồ last a while, & for the most part it does, though it did drain a bit faster than I thought it would. On average, I was getting about six or seven hours of screen on time, which isn’t really too bad. I was able to lớn use it all day though as well without having to lớn charge it baông chồng up, và I had no trouble getting through a good portion of the next day either even though I forgot lớn charge it one of the nights since it had been in use. Those worried about draining the battery on their devices too fast should have no issues here, as the device lasted long enough to get through the day.


Phone Calls và Network

This is an unlocked GSM phone so it should work just fine in the U.S. for 3G networks, though it’s unlikely khổng lồ get any 4G connections as the LTE network frequencies that are supported by this device don’t match up with those used in the U.S. That means it’s probably not the best phone to lớn have if you want something that is meant for a daily driver in the U.S., but it’s perfect for those who need a phone for traveling. The các mục of supported networks is below.2G: 1800/1900/850/9003G: 2100/1900/850/9004G FDD LTE: Band 1, 20, 3, 5, 7, 84G TDD LTE: B& 38, 40

Fingerprint Sensor

*

This was a bit of a mixed bag, as the sensor does unlock the phone pretty quickly but it had some trouble recognizing my thumb print about 30 percent of the time, despite the fact that the I deleted my print & redid it a second time, as it still seemed lớn have sầu issues authorizing me about the same amount of times. This only seemed to be an issue when I put my thumb print down on the sensor with the top of my thumb facing towards to the top part of the phone, but when putting it down at an angle it didn’t have sầu any issues at all. I thought that my issue might have sầu been that I didn’t place my thumb down on the sensor in the way that it wasn’t recognizing it, but after my second entry ensuring that I put my thumb on the sensor this way, I ran inlớn the same problems nearly as often. This kind of inconsistency made it less efficient to use the sensor to lớn unlochồng the device as I would press my thumb down about two or three times quite often before it would unloông xã, & at this point, it was faster khổng lồ simply slide up on the screen & then enter the PIN I created.

Software

*

With FlymeOS onboard, there’s nothing boring & ordinary here about the software. Not that there is anything boring about pure Android, but OEMs lượt thích Meizu who have sầu a fully fleshed out UI skin bởi vì tover khổng lồ add in some extra stuff, not lớn mention the user interface looks completely different. For starters, like many other Chinese brand devices and UI skins, FlymeOS doesn’t support an tiện ích drawer with its stochồng skin. Instead, everything is simply laid out in the open on the trang chủ screen, similar to lớn iOS, and this makes the apps a tad more accessible, but it might be strange and not lớn the liking of certain users. I lượt thích both setups, so this didn’t bother me, and it’s a nice change of pace lớn use this type of setup once in a while, though I did have sầu an issue with the software that was kind of weird và didn’t pop up when I used the M5c, which is any time that I tried to lớn swap out the wallpaper for the trang chủ screen, lock screen, or both, it would tell me that changing the wallpaper isn’t supported in this version of the software. This was extremely strange as even the T-Smartphone G1, the very first Android phone, supported wallpaper swapping.

Beyond the no-app-drawer style of a trang chủ launcher, FlymeOS has a fair amount of software enhancements và extra features lượt thích gestures. One gesture lets you swipe up on the bottom edge of the trang chủ screen to open the task manager so that you can clear out any running tasks và therefore không lấy phí up some RAM. Another neat feature is that if you press và hold down on the trang chủ button, you can lochồng the device & put it to sleep this way just as you would by pressing the power button. This felt a little more natural lớn me with the way I would the hold the phone and made it a little bit more convenient than reaching my thumb up the side of the device lớn loông chồng the display down when I was done using it. If you want things lớn be a little more automatic, you can enable a feature in settings where the device will wake when you receive notifications, so you won’t even have to hit the power button or trang chủ button lớn bring the display up.

If you’re big on gestures, then Meizu’s software might be to your liking, as there is a number of different gestures available for waking the display và launching an application or shortcut depending on what you draw on screen, lượt thích double tapping lớn wake the display, or drawing a letter C to launch apps. There’s also a game mode that is supposed to lớn optimize the user experience when on, though I didn’t notice much of a difference with this enabled or disabled. Meizu’s smart touch button has also made a return here, as it should since it’s a current feature that was available on the M5c, and this can be used for a number of gesture-like actions as well, lượt thích a single tap khổng lồ baông chồng one screen, a double tap khổng lồ launch the task manager, and sliding down to lớn open the notification shade. While you can also swipe down on the home screen with a different gesture khổng lồ vì chưng the same thing, it’s nice to have multiple options on how lớn access this. Overall, the software is a pretty good experience, though not everyone will like Meizu’s vision for Android. It does work well though, & it’s put together nicely, as well as being easy to navigate.
