Reviews for the Meizu 16s

80% Meizu 16s review
Source: PC Advisor English
With a slim, well thought out design, no notch, top level performance and a great price the Meizu 16s should be a winner – and no doubt it will be for people in the east. But for the western market the software is a little abrasive and Android 9 Pie has a skin that makes it barely recognisable. If you can look past that then the 16s is a really solid choice to import.

Meizu 16s review: Intriguing hardware, frustrating software
Source: Android Authority English
My experience with the Meizu 16s left me feeling more confused than anything else. It seems like Meizu developed the 16s while neglecting its global users. The full-screen display, high-end specs, and good cameras make me think the 16s is for tech enthusiasts. But then I am reminded of the bleak global software situation. Even for the hardcore Meizu fans out there, the 16s is a tough sell considering Meizu’s next smartphone likely isn’t too far off.

94% Meizu 16s review: An outstanding alternative to the thousand dollar flagship phone
Source: Techaeris English
I loved using the 16s for the past few weeks. I actually found myself using and reaching for this phone more often than my US$900 Android flagship. The screen is a joy to use and without a notch or punch hole it felt very immersive. The camera is great, and excels in the best lighting conditions, it struggles in low-light. Battery life is amazing and performance is right up there with flagships. Finally, that price tag is ridiculous for what you get in this package. The Meizu 16s is an outstanding alternative to the flagship phone in 2019.

Meizu 16S Review: True 2019 Flagship Depth Evaluation
Source: Igeekphone English
In the global mobile phone market, it is weak and weak, and many manufacturers are struggling to survive. It can be seen that Meizu 16S is not disturbed by the rapidly deteriorating market environment. Meizu 16s reflects “the pursuit of love”, then can the world be small and beautiful and gentle? I look forward to giving us the answer after Meizu 16s is fully listed and sold. Meizu 16S is now available on Geekbuying for just at $559.99 using a Coupon Code: MEIZU16S.

Meizu 16s hands-on: A promising all-around flagship (Update: video added)
Source: Android Authority English
In China, the Meizu 16s costs 3,198 yuan (~$476) for the 6GB+128GB model, 3,498 yuan (~$520) for the 8GB+128GB model, and 3,998 yuan (~$595) for the 8GB+256GB model. However, global Meizu 16s pricing and availability are yet to be determined. We do know, however, that the 8GB+256GB model will not be offered globally, which is a bit of a bummer.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 640: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is intergrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 20% faster than the Adreno 630 in the Snapdragon 845 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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

855: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2018 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a modified ARM Cortex-A76 architecture clocked at up to 2.84 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A76 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a X24 LTE modem (up to 2 Gigbit download), a new Wi-Fi modem (Wi-Fi 6 ready, 60 GHz mmWave), Hexagon 690 DSP with new Tensor cores for AI processing, a Spectra 380 ISP with an integrated computer vision engine and an integrated LPDDR4x memory controller.» 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.


83.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
