Though looking very closely like an iPhone, the Meizu Pro 6 hardly imitated how Apple designed their smartphones. Taking points from hardware design, functionality, and being of Android-based platform, the Meizu Pro 6 looks and feels like it took all the best things most iPhones have and added some of its own magic into the concoction. Though they do confess that they are trying to follow the footsteps of Apple in how to achieve success as close as humanly possible.
The designing of the Pro 6 includes a single hardware button on the front that carries a fingerprint-scanning feature, side-buttons for power/lock and volume control, headphone jack, mic and reversible USB Type-C connector. Coming along with a Samsung-made 5.2-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080x1920 that comes with multiple color-tweaking modes that can push the panel to its limits, the Pro 6 has also a software that helps to adjust white balance and the screen brightness. A prominent feature of the screen and software behind it is the 3D Touch that allows to hard-press certain icons to pull up shortcuts.
The Meizu Pro 6 also boasts a few more prominent features that make it a reasonable contender standing strong besides the likes of the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones. You are given the capability to fast-charge your phone thanks to the fast charging adapter, great speaker and mic quality, and premium aluminum body and case design.
The camera is able to capture up to 21MP with the rear and 5Mp with the front. The rear camera hosts a f/2.2 aperture, a laser-guided auto focus system, and a 10 LED dual tone flash. However, you will be lacking an optical image stabilization in both cameras. You are able to shoot 4K videos with a decent-enough quality.
Should You Own It?
Considering the fact that you want an iPhone but can’t really afford one, the Meizu Pro 6 is a good-enough phone to purchase and own. It’s a flagship smartphone that has many impressionable features on its own and that is saying a lot if compared to the likes on an iPhone. With a better, cleaned-up look and feel of the display and software, the Pro 6, though not the most affordable phone to purchase and own, stands on its own as a solid smartphone that proves dependable for most parts.
