Unlike its predecessors, the Meizu Pro 7 comes equipped with a secondary display and other nifty features, making it a device that delivers a great overall package. Although not all smartphone aficionados in Hong Kong will solely purchase it for the secondary display, it is still an excellent choice for those looking for a genuinely unique handset. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features.
The Pro 7’s design is similar to its previous iteration, the Pro 6. Although it sports a familiar design, it is well-built. As you pick up the Pro 7, you will know how sturdy it feels. This makes the device stand out despite lacking a few aesthetic features. The Pro 7’s chassis also appears premium, thanks to Meizu for its choice of exceptional materials including aluminum. Plus, it is comfortable to hold in the hand, as the aluminum unibody offers a soft feel which is something you won’t expect.
Similar to the Pro 6, the Pro 7’s front façade is flanked by a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display. This display is considered as one of the best in its price segment, giving you excellent color reproduction, a well-saturated display for punchy colors, and fairly good sunlight readability. On top of that, you can adjust its vibrancy and temperature to match your personal tastes.
The Pro 7’s display mode comes with options where you can enhance your images and make them look dynamic, saturated and high contrast, or natural and balanced. In another setting, you can find a slider that lets you adjust the warmness of your home screen.
The Pro 7’s secondary display serves as a clock and weather forecast widget. To enable it, simply double tap it, just make sure your phone is face down on the desk. When you swipe left, it enables the step counter, doing this motion twice will open the weather forecast app.
Unlike similar handsets in its price range, the Pro 7 is not sporting a Snapdragon chipset. Instead, it runs on the MediaTek Helio P25 which copes well with whichever tasks you throw at it. You won’t experience any slowdowns or stuttering when skipping in between apps, loading games, and browsing the web.
Dual Camera Set Up
The Meizu Pro 7 hops on the dual camera trend, as it has two 12MP sensors to create depth effect portrait photos and a black and white mode. Its camera app is equipped with an automatic mode that produces well-balanced images with vibrant colors and great detail. Even in dimly lit conditions, the amount of image noise isn't too much, making its camera pretty impressive. In addition, you can adjust the focus of the sensor and set it to macro mode so you can snap detailed images and sharp close-up photos with a good balance of color and contrast.
