Meizu 16Xs review: everything you want to know

By  Daniel Camilo 2019-05-31 1803 0

Family appearance, small upgrade, in addition to the appearance has changed ... since Meizu 16th, we have seen mostly in Meizu's new products, or based on the same design of positioning subdivision, such as configuration adjustment, fuselage material changes and so on.

Today's evaluation of the main character meizu 16Xs is also very similar. This new meizu product USES three shots. As the word "balance" repeatedly appears in the official preheating, it is based on the previous generation of products to do a "sum unchanged" addition and subtraction. As for the finished product, we will see.

Appearance: Familiar recipes

For users unfamiliar with Meizu, the beginning of the Meizu 16Xs may be attracted to a temperament that is not similar to most models on the existing market, but in fact, its shape is still a continuation of the Meizu 16 series.

Such as screen, meizu 16 xs on the 6.2 -inch AMOLED screen comprehensive adopted the abnormity equilateral symmetrical design, following the current profile screen, perforated screen, though accounts for 90.29% of the screen is not extreme, but with big curvature chamfering panel and equilateral symmetric bring aesthetic feeling, still the meizu that "a desire" visual perception.

According to Meizu official accounts, this screen, like Meizu 16s, is also optimized for deep collaboration with Samsung, with color gamut up to 103%NTSC levels and a color offset index of just 1.5. In terms of eye care, Meizu 16Xs passed the German VDE Safety eye Protection certification, the screen emits less harmful blue light. In addition, the screen is equipped with a screen fingerprint design.

And came to the back, Meizu 16Xs using 2.5D surface glass material, three-camera module placed in the upper left of the fuselage, the overall design is relatively simple and low-key, a closer look under the knight Black color of the backplane with texture design.

Weight and thickness, due to the use of 4000mAh capacity of the battery, Meizu 16Xs appears to be thicker than before (8.3mm), but due to the size of the fuselage itself is small, weight also control better (165g), with the tuned back curve, feel or online.

In addition, on the interface, Meizu 16Xs retains the 3.5mm headphone hole, using the type-C interface, dual SIM card slot (non-scalable capacity) design, in line with its positioning.

Photograph: First use of three-camera design

On the configuration, the greatest addition of the Meizu 16Xs is taking pictures. The first is the hardware, Meizu 16Xs is the brand's first use of three-camera model, which is also in other manufacturers of the midrange model is not seen in the design. Rear 4800W main camera from Samsung, support electronic stabilization, the maximum aperture f\/1.7; The secondary camera uses a 5 million depth lens, while the newly added third camera is an ultra-wide-angle lens with a resolution of 8.08 million pixels.

In terms of basic imaging, from the daytime sample, Meizu 16Xs photo tuning is very rich, this rich in the color performance of green plants is particularly obvious, due to the use of 48 million pixels of the main camera, the overall view of the day sample Zhang Rui, color hierarchy are good performance, in the opening of HDR after the dynamic improvement of the screen but some distortion, There is no abnormal condition of white balance and metering.

At night, Meizu 16Xs is equipped with handheld, scaffolding double Super night scene mode, both using pixel four-in-one and multi-frame stack synthesis technology, in order to obtain better night screen performance, the latter with the help of scaffolding to obtain a longer stack time. The real sample, in the normal shooting mode, Meizu 16Xs in the darker light environment to obtain a stronger picture smear, the lack of dark details is more serious, but the color reduction and picture brightness performance is stable, and perhaps because the engineering tester algorithm also needs to be tuned, the user commonly used handheld super night scene screen promotion is more limited , The main difference is that the control of high light is better.

In the photo interface, Meizu designed a separate button for the newly added wide-angle lens, which means that Meizu 16Xs cannot be photographed in the middle focal segment between the angle and the standard focal section like the model of Samsung S10, while the standard Coke segment and twice-fold zoom will also appear to be a bit of carton, the algorithm may need to be further optimized. However, as far as the subject matter and fun of filming are concerned, the addition of wide-angle lenses can gain a 118.8° perspective and give users a greater perspective and composition experience.

On the whole, Meizu 16Xs daytime photo performance is good, and even can get the same quality performance as the flagship machine, a slight smear feeling at night but little impact, Meizu 16Xs in the photo quality of the performance is in the mid-end machine value back to the fare, and the new wide-angle lens to bring the superiority of the composition, The slightly inadequate part is the fluency optimization of the photo interface, as well as the HDR algorithm.

Performance: Plus and minus on the book

Meizu 16Xs uses the Qualcomm Dragon 675 processor, the CPU part uses 2 large core 6 small core eight nuclear architecture, the GPU part is Adreno 612, according to the official, Qualcomm Dragon 675 phase than 660 platform single-core performance improvement 35%, comprehensive performance improvement 30%. Although the performance with the previous generation of the Qualcomm Dragon 710 have to win or lose, but from the overall use of the chip positioning, Meizu 16Xs in this respect has a small shrinkage.

Specific to the running score, three running points basically maintain the 18W level, the overall running point process does not have heat, in line with the level of the end processor. In the game aspect, playing mainstream hand tour is naturally not a problem, coupled with Meizu self-research One Mind 3.0 optimization, daily use is also basically smooth.

As for the life and charging aspect, it was mentioned that Meizu 16Xs used 4000mAh large battery, the life of hardware protection, perhaps also in view of the large battery capacity, 16Xs did not use 24W fast charge, the maximum charging rate of 18W.


Easy to grip the small size, the chip + large capacity battery, plus joined the three design taken photos, you can find the market on the meizu 16 xs models all the characteristics of high end, or even better in the photo, but it's still early back to wen's point of view, the meizu 16 xs on significantly improve or change is not much, some parts and even before the generation of products at the same level with winning or losing, looks like a sum remains the same, the score difference of breakdown products, and the product itself is too "low key", it may be to persuade the meizu fans and a big obstacle to a stranger pay for them.
