Artem Lutfullin, attended the presentation of the Meizu, correctly pointed out that the line MX is experimental: future models will get new functions or original technical parameters, and further innovations will be the aggregate of all other devices of the companies, especially in the Pro Series gadgets.

If we talk about the MX6, it is one of the key pieces was precisely Camera – 12 MP sensor IMX386 from Sony. And Meizu says that it is a custom sensor, specially prepared for the MX6. And I can confidently say that the camera in this gadget is the best among all the Meizu smartphone, published to date.

Meizu MX6 Design, size, controls

Latest smartphones Meizu companies alike, to distinguish them can, perhaps, only the manufacturer. MX6 device – almost a complete copy (in terms of appearance) Pro 6, only the first bit larger and there is a lovely circular flash with laser focus. Dimensions of new items – 153.6 x 75.2 x 7.25 mm, that is, it is quite compact and thin, and weighs 155 grams, which for the 5.5-inch device in a metal quite well. I would hope that the MX7 or Pro 7 will have a different design, the current bit become boring, is not it?

Screen protective glass covers with 2.5D effect around the edges. For the use of time is not “planted” no scratches, chips and scuffs also appeared. Oleophobic coating is present, high-quality, poorly visible prints, finger slides easily on wheels.

All-metal housing with a “veined” under the antenna at the top and bottom on the back side. It looks stylish and neat. The corners are rounded, sloping faces and have a smooth transition to the rear panel. In his hand is excellent due to the small thickness and rounded body.

White line – is the goal that we are trying to achieve. Yellow line – the actual screen data. You can see that we are right on target curve with the values from 0 to 100%, which means that for each value of the image sufficiently highlighted. Yellow line – in fact, the average number of red, green and blue.

At minimum brightness temperature is closer to 10 000 K, at a maximum of about – 8500 K, ie, the higher the brightness, the warmer the color.

According to the diagram, the data exceeds the sRGB triangle, that is, excellent color saturation.

All gray points are located outside the range DeltaE = 10, which indicates that the other shades of gray are present in colors.

Speaking in his own words, the screen has a low contrast ratio (with respect to official figures), the light fades. Juicy colors, saturated, maximum viewing angles, no purple or yellow shades. Visually, the matrix transmits an excellent picture.

Several sad story, because the available 26 GB, other versions, such as 64 GB or 128 GB is not, and the memory card device is not supported. information reading speed – 158 Mb / s, the recording speed information – 57 MB / s. To be honest, sparse, especially the recording speed.

Meizu MX6 Cameras

The new company Meizu has received, according to CEO Bai Yongxiang, customized module main Sony IMX386 camera. In this case, a 12 MP sensor (pixel size of 1.25 microns), optics (6 lenses) has aperture f = 2.0, there is a phase autofocus. Oddly, optical stabilization again “not delivered” and it is very sad: to equip the unit cool camera and embed “stub” – a strange phenomenon. In addition, there is no laser “helper” when focusing. Pleased with quick and accurate focus.

As the front of the module acts as a sensor OmniVision OV5695 (¼ inch size, the pixel size of 1.4 microns) with backlight technology OmniBSI +. Optics consists of four lenses, aperture f = 2.0.

In the afternoon the main camera to capture high quality images: the perfect white balance, good attention to detail, good dynamic range, rich colors and so on. In general, under ideal lighting conditions cool picture give almost all modern smartphones.

By lowering the level of lighting the image on the camera Meizu MX6 becomes mylnovatoy appear noise reduction artifacts. However, the colors are always natural.

The gadget is able to write video in 4K resolution at 30 f / s. Codec MP4 H.265, 43 Mbit / s. The quality is slightly above average. The front camera is capable of FullHD resolution at 30 f / s. Codec H.264, 17 Mbit / s. The quality is excellent.

The new firmware version now has a noise reduction. The machine thinks of the photo a little longer than usual. However, the big difference between the on and off option I have not seen.

So, at the moment the gadget shoots better than any other smart phone the company and to the famous camera phones already close, but still not close enough to compete directly.

Meizu MX6 Performance and software platform

Smartphone Meizu MX6 is running chip company MediaTek – Helio X20. It desyatiyaderny chip with quad-core Cortex-A53 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 1.8 GHz and two Cortex-A72 with a frequency of 2.3 GHz, 20 nm process technology. As the graphics system is a ARM Mali-T880.

When CPU load metal casing is practically not heated, it remains warm and comfortable not only keep, but also bring in a call to his ear. The device does not pull all applications run instantly, lags were not found. With games everything is fine: go all “Gama” at maximum settings.

The smartphone runs on Google Android 6.0 operating system. Since Meizu applies proprietary shell Flyme (in this case version 5.2.2.0G), then from the “Six” there is nothing left. Unlike Pro 6, there is no function 3D Press. there was a chip “security mode of” In the settings screen (when the screen is lit in warm shades). You can set the timer start operation.

The new firmware (commercial samples) slightly changed the design of saving screenshots. Now, right at the top – “Save” in the middle – “Share” on the left – “Cancel” at the bottom – the creation of long image.

In the settings you see “Easy mode”. It uses a simple layout with multiple desktop icons.

You find the “Search” Among the applications. Displayed weather and other weather data.

Swipe on the desktop enables search across the phone.

One more innovation is not the most pleasant thing – the lack of Google services in new devaysakh Meizu. However, the company decided this question is simple: among the applications on the phone has «Hot apps», and in it the installer GAPs. Put “franca” and get a full-fledged smartphone.

Meizu MX6 Multimedia

The music player is standard for Meizu, there is an equalizer. The sound quality is normal, unremarkable: I did not have the deep bass. The volume is also average, in the subway already heard bad.

The speaker is very loud and high-quality. In this regard, Meizu really great.

Radio in this model. Video device “cool” in all resolutions and codecs even without special software.

Meizu MX6 Conclusion

The model is not that strange, but it was obvious that the developers have in store for something more original and interesting for future models. It seems to me, is:

New design. No, the old is even nothing, but teeth on edge

The screen is based on the matrix by Sharp. That is even more refined, possibly with a high-resolution

The new camera module, image stabilization and laser autofocus
