Reviews for the Meizu 16Xs

88% Meizu 16Xs review: An impressive, budget-friendly smartphone with some concessions
Source: Techaeris English
The Meizu 16Xs has its shortcomings, but they’re not too bad compared to the 16s. The price tag is smaller and so are some of the features and performance. But not everyone needs the features and performance the more expensive 16s offers. That’s why the Meizu 16Xs is a great budget phone that gives you enough at a price that’s not going to overstretch your budget.

MEIZU 16Xs Hands-On Review: Meizu First Three Camera Phone
Source: Igeekphone English
The vibration motor does not know whether it is a linear motor, but it is definitely not the X-axis motor on the 16S. The measured vibration is loose. The corresponding time is long and the amplitude is small. The back also cancels the pressing function. Instead, tap the return and press the HOME button. It can be said that the lack of mBACK’s pressing function Meizu’s comprehensive screen gesture experience has suddenly dropped several grades.

Qualcomm Adreno 612: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 675) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. Our first benchmarks show a performance comparable to the old Adreno 512 and therefore in the lower mid-range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 675: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 460 cores (two fast 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A76 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.6 GHz) and a rather slow Adreno 612 GPU. Manufactured in the 11 nm LPP process at Samsung.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

88%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
