Design and Display

The Meuzu 16 comes with what most of these flagships bring to the table which is an appealing glass and an 18:9 aspect ratio or something close. It has more rounded edges which makes it look a bit different. Also, it comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, and a speaker at the bottom while the side as the volume rocker as well as the power button. There is the much reduced bezels around the screen especially at the side to bring the display coverage to 91.18%.

Meizu retajns the mBack button that is on screen and adds an underscreen fingerprint scanner for your own use. Made with an aluminium frame that blends with the glass covering, thus the smartphone appears uniform. The dual camera is placed vertically at the upper center with the ring flash below it.

Coming to the screen, you have to give Meizu some accolades for the Super AMOLED display used in the Meizu 16. Same as the other recent flagships, the smartphone comes with a fairly large display of 6.0-inch. Regarding resolution, the display is a Full HD+ 1080 X 2160 pixels resolution with a 402 ppi pixel density.

Battery and Camera

As for the battery, there is about the same average capacity most of these smartphones have. The Meizu 16 for example ships with a 3, 010mAh battery. As it should, there is mCharge 4.0 which is Meizu’s fast charge feature for filling your battery quickly. However, you will not be enjoying wireless charge on this one.

Now for those of you interested in the optics on the smartphone, you have a capable dual camera on the back of the smartphone. It possesses a  12MP camera with f/1.8 aperture and a 20MP camera having a f/2.8 aperture. The selfie camera is a 20MP sensor which according to Meizu is nothing short of impressive.

Hardware and Software

Furthermore, it packs a large 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage , although, a less speced variant has 6GB RAM working with 64GB built-in storage. It also carries a copper tube heat dessipation tube to distribute heat away from the chipset. It is however, not with the latest Android Oreo version (Android 8.0 Oreo) and a customary Flyme UI.
