Meizu 15 Plus 6 / 64GB

Rating: 4.9

Meizu 15 Plus 6 / 64GB

The most expensive smartphone in our ranking. And he also has the least number of flaws. How can you reproach the device with a gorgeous dual camera, consisting of sensors with a resolution of 12 and 20 megapixels? This camera shoots no worse than SLR cameras with standard optics. In particular, she also knows how to beautifully blur the background, resulting in cute portraits. It should be noted that the two lenses have different focal lengths, which allows the owner of the smartphone to instantly switch to 3x optical zoom. What other device will offer this? It's funny that the buyer will not have any complaints about the front camera. Although it consists of one lens, it includes a 20-megapixel sensor. In a word, lovers of selfies will definitely like the device! Another question: are they ready to pay 46 thousand rubles for it?

Of course, this smartphone is not good for cameras alone. It also boasts an impeccable appearance, the width of its side frames is minimized. An almost 6-inch AMOLED panel is used as a screen. This speaks not only of rich colors, but also of low power consumption. The display resolution is 2560×1440 pixels – hardly anyone will ask for more. Of course, a powerful processor is required to process a picture with this resolution. Fortunately, it is here – this is a rare case when the eight-core Samsung Exynos 8895 is used outside the products of the South Korean company. The device also includes 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent memory – such a volume cannot be called insufficient.

There is a lot of talk about Meizu 15 Plus. This device has modern wireless modules, stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner, two slots for SIM cards, a face recognition function … In short, it is pointless to list all the advantages. As for the price tag, it was influenced by the fact that this smartphone is essentially experimental. Most of the components for it were provided by Samsung, and not for a penny. Meizu 15 Plus rolls in 3x optical zoom technology. How buyers perceive it will determine whether a similar dual camera will appear in the next South Korean flagship.

Advantages

  • Excellent dual camera with 3x optical zoom;

  • Loud stereo speakers are built in.

  • Yes AMOLED – very high resolution display;

  • There are LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac modules;

  • Unlocking possible with face recognition;

  • Uses one of the most powerful processors;

  • Built-in huge amount of memory;

  • The front camera has a very high resolution;

  • Capacious battery with support for Meizu Super mCharge;

disadvantages

  • Many people cannot afford the device;

  • There is no NFC.

Meizu Pro 7 Plus 128GB

Rating: 4.9

Meizu Pro 7 Plus 128GB

The amount of permanent memory of 64 GB seems insufficient for you, but you don't feel like using a microSD card? Then we recommend paying attention to Meizu Pro 7 Plus. This is the only smartphone in our ranking that has 128 GB of internal memory. This volume should be enough for a huge amount of music (including uncompressed) and many photos. Even movies that have a resolution Full HD can fit here – each one usually weighs 10-12 GB.

You will be surprised, but not even the amount of memory is the main distinguishing feature of the Meizu Pro 7 Plus. It stands out from the competition by the presence of a second display located on the back, right below the dual camera. This screen has a diagonal of 1.9 inches, and it was created using technology AMOLED – you should not worry about the increased power consumption. Most often, a display with a resolution of 536×240 pixels will be used for taking selfies. That is, the front camera is now relegated to the background. Although its resolution is very high – as much as 16 megapixels. It is a pity that this module will only be used for video communication.

If we are talking about cameras, then we cannot fail to mention the main module. As stated above, it is double. Matrices with a resolution of 12 megapixels are hidden under the lenses. This design helps the camera to capture sharper images and easily blur the background when needed.

The front of the device houses a 5.7-inch screen. It was also created using technology AMOLED, and its resolution is 2560×1440 pixels. There are 515 pixels for every inch of space! In a word, it is not surprising that a top-end ten-core solution from MediaTek is used here as a processor. And the device is also capable of boasting a capacious battery with support for proprietary fast charging technology. Nothing bad can be said about wireless modules – they support all modern technologies. Except for NFC – this chip Meizu does not want to use it in his devices yet.

Advantages

  • In Use AMOLED – very high resolution display;

  • LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ac available.

  • There is an auxiliary display on the back;

  • Very decent front camera

  • Great dual camera;

  • Fingerprint scanner is not forgotten;

  • Huge amount of memory;

  • There is a very powerful Helio X30 processor;

  • Built-in capacious battery with support for Meizu Super mCharge;

disadvantages

  • There is no NFC;

  • In large retail chains, the cost reaches 37 thousand rubles.

Meizu MX5 32GB

Rating: 4.8

Meizu MX5 32GB

An excellent smartphone for those who cannot afford top-end devices. This device is much cheaper, but its characteristics continue to surpass most of the competitors on the market. For example, here's a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution Full HD. Many buyers don't need more – this is the ideal setting for watching movies and videos. It is also important that the display was created using technology AMOLED. This means that the buyer is waiting for perfect blacks and very low power consumption. The second factor is also facilitated by the processor, made according to a very delicate technical process. It is used here MediaTek Helio X10 Turbo, consisting of eight cores and capable of operating at a clock frequency of 2.2 GHz.

The rear panel of the device houses the lens of the main camera. It has a resolution of 20.7 megapixels, which is more than enough for creating detailed pictures and recording 4K video. To save the latter, however, there is not much space here – only 32 GB. However, no one forbids inserting a memory card, then videos will be written on it. Most importantly, the microSD card slot is separate; it does not interfere with the installation of a second SIM card.

Otherwise, this is a typical smartphone from Meizu, which does not belong to the budget segment. It got into our rating, among other things, for supporting LTE networks and Wi-Fi 802.11ac – the data transfer speed of the buyer will definitely suit. There is also a fingerprint sensor that works in a split second. Some claims can only be made about the battery, the capacity of which does not exceed 3150 mAh.

Advantages

  • Uses NXP-TFA9890 music chip;

  • The device weighs less than 149 g.

  • The screen resolution is not low;

  • The display consists of OLEDs;

  • Excellent high resolution rear camera;

  • There is support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac and LTE;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Built-in powerful eight-core processor;

disadvantages

  • Not the most recent version Android;

  • The battery could be more capacious;

  • It is almost impossible to find in Russian stores;

Meizu Pro 7 64GB

Rating: 4.7

Meizu Pro 7 64GB

Another and not the last smartphone in our ranking, which has 64 GB of non-volatile memory at its disposal. The device was released relatively recently, so it is supported by the operating system Android 7.0, which will not become obsolete for many more years. The operating system itself is provided by the processor MediaTek Helio P25. This is an eight-core solution with enough power to solve any problem. In the games, the graphics accelerator Mali-T880 MP2 is used. In short, the buyer is unlikely to complain about insufficient performance. It is generally difficult to find negative aspects here that one could complain about. The owner of the smartphone should be satisfied with 4 GB of RAM, support for LTE networks of the sixth category, and the presence of a full-fledged audio chip, thanks to which you want to listen to music only in FLAC format.

However, not everything is so happy. The cost of a smartphone is around 25 thousand rubles. This means that a device cannot only consist of top-end components. For example, a battery with a capacity of less than 3000 mAh can cause some discontent. However, it supports fast charging technology, so you shouldn't worry too much about this parameter. But nothing can be done with the Wi-Fi module, and therefore you will have to forget about data transfer using the high-speed 802.11ac standard. To be fair, not all smartphone buyers have a router that supports this standard.

On the front side of the device is AMOLED – a screen with high energy efficiency and a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. At a 5.2-inch diagonal, this resulted in a pixel density of 424 PPI. But the smartphone Meizu Pro 7 is not limited to one screen! This is already the second representative of our rating, on the back panel of which there is an auxiliary AMOLED – panel. Usually it displays the date and time, but you can use such a small display for shooting yourself. The camera here, by the way, is dual – under the lenses there are 12-megapixel matrices. As for the front camera, it has a 16-megapixel resolution.

Advantages

  • Good sound quality;

  • There is a lot of memory;

  • A very powerful processor is built in;

  • Fingerprint scanner is not forgotten;

  • LTE-A Cat.6 is supported;

  • There is a second display;

  • Nice rear camera being dual;

  • Very high resolution front camera;

  • Used AMOLED – display with resolution Full HD;

disadvantages

  • Not the fastest Wi-Fi;

  • There is no NFC chip;

  • I would like to get a more capacious battery;

Meizu M6 Note 4 / 32GB

Rating: 4.7

Meizu M6 Note 4 / 32GB

Available smartphones Meizu should have entered our rating. In particular, for the M6 ​​Note in retail chains they ask about 11 thousand rubles. It seems that many Russians can afford to buy such a device. What kind of money awaits them?

Despite the name, the smartphone is not very big. On its front panel there is only a 5.5-inch screen. Its resolution is 1920×1080 pixels. There will definitely not be any complaints about viewing angles, the LCD panel is made using modern IPS technology. By the way, the operating system is responsible for what is happening on the screen Android 7.1 – there is nothing fresh in the arsenal Meizu. On the back, which can be painted in one of three colors, there is a dual camera. Matrices with a resolution of 12 and 5 megapixels are hidden under its lenses. Such a camera tries to effectively blur the background when photographing a person. She tries, but she does not always succeed. But this in no way means that the camera is bad, because then this unit would not have made it into our rating. If we talk about the front camera, then it has a 16-megapixel sensor at its disposal.

Meizu The M6 ​​Note really has nothing to scold. Under its body is 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of permanent memory. The processor is far from the weakest Snapdragon 625, consisting of eight computing cores. Autonomous operation is provided by a 4000 mAh battery (support for fast charging is not forgotten). Of course, there is also an LTE module. The weak point of the device is only Wi-Fi – this module does not support the high-speed 802.11ac standard.

Advantages

  • Not the worst rear camera;

  • Affordable price tag;

  • Three color options to choose from;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Capacious battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0;

  • Large amount of memory;

  • Built-in powerful eight-core processor;

  • There is support for LTE and Bluetooth 4.2;

  • Great front camera

disadvantages

  • There is no NFC;

  • The interface is not fully Russified;

  • The Wi-Fi module does not have support for the 802.11ac standard;

Meizu M6s 64GB

Rating: 4.6

Meizu M6s 64GB

A slightly larger smartphone with a 5.7-inch display. It is sold for 13-17 thousand rubles. At the same time, in terms of characteristics, the device is inferior to some competitors. But on the other hand, it surpasses them in terms of the width of the color gamut – four options are available to the buyer.

Like almost all modern smartphones Meizu, the device has two SIM card slots. At the same time, data transmission is carried out over high-speed LTE networks. If we talk about Wi-Fi, the capabilities of this module are limited by the 802.11n standard. The device also includes Bluetooth 4.1 and an infrared transmitter. The latter is needed to control TV and other equipment. But NFC is again absent here. This means that it will not be possible to replace a bank card with a smartphone.

If the previous reviewed devices had dual cameras, then the usual module with one lens, under which there is a 16-megapixel matrix, is used. Maximum of such a camera is capable of shooting video with a resolution Full HD and a frequency of 30 frames / s. The front-facing resolution is half the size, which, however, is not bad either.

The work of this model is provided by a six-core Samsung Exynos 7872 processor. Everything is in order with the device and with the memory – the buyer is waiting for 3 GB of RAM and as much as 64 GB of ROM. Here you can find fault only with the screen. This 5.7-inch display is made with IPS technology, which means good color reproduction and maximum viewing angles. However, the screen resolution is only 1440×720 pixels – which is sad, especially against the background of some other smartphones Meizu with a similar price tag.

Advantages

  • Good rear camera

  • A large number of body color options;

  • Excellent navigation capabilities;

  • Powerful enough processor;

  • Large amount of memory;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Can be used as a remote control;

  • Data transmission over LTE networks is possible;

  • Decent front camera

disadvantages

  • No NFC chip;

  • It is quite difficult to find at an adequate price;

  • Not the best Wi-Fi module;

  • Not the highest display resolution;

Meizu M6 Note 3 / 32GB

Rating: 4.6

Meizu M6 Note 3 / 32GB

This ranking has already discussed the Meizu M6 Note. However, above we talked about the so-called advanced version of the device, equipped with an increased memory capacity. Do I need to say that not everyone needs this option? The Chinese manufacturer understands this by offering a version Meizu of the M6 ​​Note, which housed 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of permanent memory under the case. Let's try to understand if this volume is enough for everyday use?

A mobile operating system can run on devices with at least 1 GB of RAM. And if this volume is tripled, then the user will be able to keep a huge number of applications in the background. Even an Internet browser will not experience problems, no matter how many tabs are open. 32 GB of non-volatile memory is also quite a decent amount. Many smartphones from more eminent competitors are not even capable of bragging about them! And if you want to store a lot of music and video files, the microSD card slot will come to the rescue (maximum 128 GB drives are supported). The only pity is that this slot is combined with a place for a second SIM card.

The rest of the gadget is almost no different from its slightly more powerful brother. It uses an eight-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. The picture is displayed on a 5.5-inch display with a resolution Full HD. The image is processed by the operating system Android 7.1. As for the set of wireless modules, it is common for Meizu. That is, NFC is not here, Wi-Fi is limited to the 802.11n standard, and LTE works without problems. An infrared transmitter could be a nice bonus, but the manufacturer decided to abandon it.

Advantages

  • Four color options available;

  • There is a fingerprint sensor;

  • Great front camera

  • Nice rear camera being dual;

  • LTE networks are supported;

  • Capacious battery with fast charging support;

  • Powerful processor;

  • Decent amount of memory;

  • Good navigation capabilities;

disadvantages

  • Finding at a low price is not easy enough;

  • There is a pre-installed garbage that needs to be disposed of;

  • There is no NFC;

Meizu M8c

Rating: 4.5

Meizu M8c

Recently, the company Meizu has rarely released budget smartphones. Nevertheless, you can find such devices in Russian stores, which is confirmed by the example of the M8c that got into our rating Meizu. This device is sold for 10 thousand rubles. In stores, you can find two color options – traditional black and unusual yellow.

The front panel of the gadget is a shelter for a display with a diagonal of 5.45 inches and a resolution of 1440×720 pixels. Above it you can find an 8-megapixel front camera, which is not bad for a device with such a price tag. If you flip the device, you can see a 13-megapixel rear camera. You can only find fault with its aperture – the module includes a modest f / 2.2 aperture.

The Chinese used Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 as a processor. This is a quad-core solution with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz. Not ideal, but better than a similar chipset from MediaTek. Also under the case are 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of permanent memory. There is no doubt that the user will need a microSD card, for the sake of which they will have to abandon the installation of a second SIM card. As for the wireless modules, the device lacks stars from the sky. When using Wi-Fi, the owner of the smartphone will be limited to the 802.11n standard. On the street, you can use LTE networks. Forget about NFC.

In a word, Meizu M8c is a very decent device for its money. Of course, it has a number of limitations. But which of the budget smartphones has fewer drawbacks?

Advantages

  • Not the worst processor for this price;

  • The optimal price tag in most retail chains;

  • Not a bad 8-megapixel front camera;

  • Really decent rear camera

  • Implemented support for LTE networks;

  • There are proximity and light sensors;

disadvantages

  • There is no fingerprint scanner;

  • I would like more permanent memory;

  • No NFC chip;

Meizu M5 16GB

Rating: 4.4

Meizu M5 16GB

The oldest smartphone in this ranking. The official announcement of this model took place in the fall of 2016. The same device is now one of the cheapest – you can buy it in online stores for 7-9 thousand rubles. So you shouldn't expect any serious opportunities from him? No matter how it is!

The product has received a polycarbonate case, which can be painted in one of several colors. Partly due to this, the device turned out to be very light – its weight does not exceed 138 g. The device works seamlessly with LTE networks, providing the user with a high data transfer rate. Everything is in order here and with a navigation chip that supports GPS and GLONASS. There are no brakes when viewing maps, for which one should thank the eight-core processor MediaTek MT6750.

Under the body of the smartphone there are 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of permanent memory, which can be considered a standard set for a budget device. But the camera used here is atypical – it has a 13-megapixel resolution. With its help, you can easily shoot Full HD video, while the frequency will be 30 frames / s. The manufacturer saved only on the front camera, which is 5-megapixel here. Also, the Chinese did not endow their creation with a particularly capacious battery. But 3070 mAh is also quite a worthy parameter, which is enough for a day of battery life with not the most active use.

Perhaps, M5 can only disappoint someone Meizu with its screen. The 5.2-inch IPS panel used here has only HD resolution. But it is quite possible to put up with this if you want to get a device for little money.

Advantages

  • Low cost;

  • There is a fingerprint scanner;

  • Built-in powerful eight-core processor;

  • There is support for LTE;

  • Good rear camera

  • Several color options;

  • Low weight;

disadvantages

  • No NFC chip;

  • The amount of permanent memory could be larger;

  • Display resolution is not very high;

  • Wi-Fi does not support 802.11ac;

Conclusion

Now you know which smartphones Meizu are the best. We can safely say that buying any of the gadgets discussed in this article will not disappoint you. Most often, devices produced by forces Meizu are very reliable, and their capabilities are not inferior to what competitors' products are capable of.
