Meizu 16X - User Reviews

  • Meizu offers better spec and features, as well sleak design just battery is small capacity for all models

  • Yes of course but dont forget they put 10nm power efficient Snapdragon 710 inside. So 3100 mAh is not small at 7.5 mm thickness n compact body. It also not big coz it's hard to put large battery on 16x size. Do u remember why Galaxy Note 7 explode? ;)

  • You're correct in saying a phone with a 6 inch screen with no bezels is the same size as a 5.5 inch phone with bezels but a 6 inch screen needs more power to run than a 5.5 inch one.

  • joybuy gearbest

  • Where did u find Nokia X7 price? GsmArena says it's still coming soon on the spec. Also, u have to know that Nokia X7 is not Meizu 16x competitor but Meizu X8 with just a little better spec and of course the price. Price n spec: Meizu X8 < Nokia X7 < Meizu 16x Design: Meizu X8 > Nokia X7

  • i check the price for now the lower prices i found nokia x7.......real price start from 245$....with price cut 225$ meizu 16x.....real price start from 445$..... with price cut 389$

  • Sorry.. I mean 16X at arround 300 Euro at GsmArena spec list.. Not X8..

  • Are u sure Nokia X7 is cheaper than this? GsmArena write Meizu X8 is arround €300 while Nokia X7 is arround €350. Pls check the real availability price.. Not the announced price..

  • omg same, I bought the E3 while I was back in China in july... 2 months later they release this 16X that costs 50 bucks more with much more features...

  • just because of 3× optical zoom lossless i wanted ro prefer this to nokia X7 now without this option i choose x7 because of the lower price & better battery no need to under display fingerprint

  • there is no 3× optical zoom lossless !!!!

  • Wrong.. SD710 is not close perfomance to SD845.. It quite far especially for the GPU.. The CPU perfomance is lower than SD835 and the GPU is still lower than the GPU of SD821.. But for the efficiency, yes it is more efficient than SD 835.. So the 3200 mAh battery is quite enough considering the SD710 power efficiency and the 7.5mm thickness of the body (so it is lighter in hand). Dont forget it support mCharge fast charging (not like iPhone Xs which is not providing fast charger inside the box altough it's so expensive).

  • There's not much on Youtube, but this phone will have a better battery life than the other two. The Snapdragon 710 is quite amazing. Yes 3100 mAh may sound scarce, but the 710 has better energy efficiency than the old 660 and close to the 845 on performance. I think only the Mate 20 lite would have better battery life than this one.

  • Comparison? Couldn't find a video or even a text review where 16x's battery life is tested. Want to share with us ?

  • Well slim or not i dont care that much. As long as is not heavy like XZ3 for example. For a very long time Sony making heavy bulky bricks with tinny battery i dont like that at all.

  • Pay attention that dimmension of the phone. Not the screen size because the aspect ratio tell the difference in overal size. 6 inch 18:9 phone is not bigger than 5.5 inch 16:9 phone. The Soc itself also makes it difference. That's why many middle range phone have bigger battery than flagship itself because the Soc take fewer space. Of course middle range phone usually have thicker n heavier body. If u think 6 inch (18:9) phone have 3100 mAh is small, just buy the other one. I think u will hard to find slim phone which has big battery.

  • Well i get your point but for me 3100 mAh on a 6 inch phone is damn small. And i dislike or refuse that. For me up to 5,5 inch should be used for a battery up to 3200 mAh othervise it should have a lot bigger battery at least 3800-4000 in a 6 inch screen.

  • Not "a bit" but "far". Just like u compare hatchback car and SUV car. Not all people like such a big phablet phone (177 x 85 mm) and damn heavy 230gr!! The point is 6 inch phone with 7.5mm thickness with 3100 mAh is normal.. If u like Honor Note 10.. Just buy it.. Maybe u dont like 6 inch phone n slim 7.5mm.. As simple as that..

  • Well allright its a bit bigger but a lot better,

  • Lol.. Non sense comment.. Honor Note 10 Pro even far bigger than Meizu 16 Plus (and also a little bit fatter).. 151 x 73.5 x 7.5 (3100 mAh) - Meizu 16x 160.4 x 78.2 x 7.3 mm (3570 mAh) - Meizu 16 Plus 177 x 85 x 7.7 (5000 mA) - Honor Note 10 Pro 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8 (4000 mAh) - Galaxy Note 9 154.9 x 74.8 x 7.6 (3000 mAh) - Mi 8 Pro

  • Lol.. Non sense comment.. Honor Note 10 Pro even far bigger than Meizu 16 Plus (and also a little bit fatter).. 151 x 73.5 x 7.5 (3100 mAh) - Meizu 16x 160.4 x 78.2 x 7.3 mm (3570 mAh) - Meizu 16 Plus 177 x 85 x 7.7 (5000 mA) - Honor Note 10 Pro 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8 (4000 mAh) - Galaxy Note 9 154.9 x 74.8 x 7.6 (3000 mAh) - Mi 8 Pro

  • Well i dont think Honor note 10 is far bigger phone. Its maybe a bit bigger but not really big,

  • Sorry bro.. Energizer Power Max P20 is 17.5mm thick and not same class.. Huawei Honor Note 10 is far bigger phone.. Pls compare head to head phone.. I maen the same size of Meizu 16x.. As I said for exampe Mi 8 EE and Mi 8 Pro (which is launched a few days ago).. LG V30 also has arround the same size but it's a little bit bigger..

  • Yup but even a lot smaller phones have a lot bigger battery than apple uses. For example Energizer Power Max P20 a button phone with a huge 4000 mAh battery. Or Huawei Honor note 10 the phone its very thin and have 5000 mAh. Also the latest chipset from huawei.

  • Despite Apple A chipset are beast.. they have disadvantages such as the size of the board.. That's why iPhone always have small battery capacity (and also caused by slim body).. Dont forget the waterproof seal that take space also.. So I think the 3100 mAh Meizu 16x is not small capacity compare to bigger size of Mi 8 Explorer (which has same FP under display but only has 3000 mAh battery). CMIIW

  • Why they insist in not implementing the NFC?

  • Is there a global version of this device? I like this phone so bad.

  • Yep apple is crazy. They could made battery from one border to another but no. Tons of space left for nothing and that L-Shaped battery i dont think so.

  • 16X has a metal body.

  • Drunk comment.. Look iPhone Xs Max! It has bigger body but only have same battery with Meizu 16x.. Lol

  • No it has metal mate back.. Except the white one.. Glossy finish..

  • I was gonna wish it had expandable memory but then I realized it's very unlikely gonna reach my country, so.

  • It is the same like Meizu 16.....Glass body.... They replace the Snapdragon 845 for Snapdragon 710.

  • it has good battery life, go watch comparison. oreo makes big changes

  • I regret I bought Meizu E3, when suddenly this phone is launched

  • Man phone is slim but a 6 inch screen can pack huge in size battery even the slim one.

  • Will be more good if have 3400-4200mah battery, even with 8.2mm thickness than 7.5mm and 3100

  • Why not FM radio?

  • Meizu creates it for style.. Not for enthusiast user.. Just look at how thin this phone compare to iPhone X n other flagship.. So it cant fit more battery on that slim body..

  • Meizu 16 series use mCharge - it's a bit faster and more efficient than QC3.0 - 24W of charging power as far as I remember

  • And without quick charge 3.0 at least, what is the point of having a (Qualcomm SDM710 Snapdragon 710)

  • Looks promising but battery should be bigger. Fact is SD845 consumes much less energy but anyway in case of battery bigger is better.

  • Looks very cheap, maybe it's plastic made? yet have to pay 300 euro for it... Without gorrila glass protection...

  • IP68 next time, please! I won't buy now.
