MEIZU is more active in this year's mobile phone market than previous years. Not only the MEIZU 16 series flagship new phones get good results, but also held the new product launch conference for MEIZU16T in Beijing on October 23. However, the significance of MEIZU 16T is not limited to its screen. Although it is positioned as the "big screen entertainment flagship phone",other features of Snapdragon 855, 4500mAh battery, linear motor, and dual speakers are also very attractive at the starting price of 1999CNY. Now let's take a look at how this MEIZU flagship phone expresses its wonderful.
First let's take a look at this screen. Its size is 6.5 inches and the resolution is 2232*1080. Since the MX4, MEIZU has chosen the "small and beautiful" style in the design of the flagship phone.In the era of full screen, from the MEIZU 16th, the symmetrical full-screen of the upper and lower borders became one of the symbols in the MEIZU design language.
The front camera is placed at the top of the frame, and there are components such as a breathing light and a distance sensor on the right side, and a hidden speaker on the top of it, which does not affect the screen display at all.
The width of the chin is also narrowed as much as possible. Although the upper and lower borders are slightly wider than the left and right sides (the actual size is not much wider), the coordination and integration of the design is higher than that of the shaped screen and the digging screen. The rounded corners around the screen match the phone body, which makes the front side more beautiful and elegant, and the rounded feel looks very comfortable.
It is worth mentioning that the screen of MEIZU 16T is a Samsung-customized Super Amoled screen, using the latest E3 material, supporting 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, contrast ratio up to 10000:1, maximum brightness is 600nit, color and contrast performance are very superior. It also supports fingerprint unlocking, and the unlocking time is only takes 0.2s. So MEIZU said that this screen is the best screen in the history of MEIZU.
The color of the mobile phone I got this time is called "Whale Blue". The blue color is easy to remind us of the deep sea. Under the illumination of the light, we can see that the light blue reflection from the lower right corner is very good. The sense of hierarchy is like the sparkling light on the sea. In addition, MEIZU 16T also has two colors of "Sunlight Orange" and "Lake Green".
Although the glass is replaced by plastic, the feel is still as smooth as ever. It can be seen that MEIZU is more careful about the design of this product. The MEIZU LOGO on the back is placed in the middle, but the classic ring flash is placed under the camera module, perhaps for the diameter design, the MEIZU 16T also designed a red circle around the middle of the camera.
At the bottom is the Type-C interface, 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker. This time MEIZU 16T uses dual stereo speakers which makes the audio experience better when playing games and watching movies. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also convenient for most of users. In general, the MEIZU 16T design is fully in line with its positioning of the big screen entertainment flagship mobile phone.
MEIZU 16T is equipped with the Snapdragon 855 platform, which is also the best choice in this price range. After all, it is also a 7nm flagship core. Moreover, the performance gap is not large compared with the current mainstream Snapdragon 855+，so we don't have to worry about its performance as it is enough to meet our demands for one or two years.
In terms of running points, the score of MEIZU 16T is more than 450,000 points, which is higher than the running scores of most of the same chips in the current ANTUTU 8.1, and this has a lot to do with its UFS 3.0 flash memory. Here we can test its read and write capabilities, and we can see that it is better than UFS 2.1. It will be faster when storing and opening large files and loading game maps.
In PUBG (PLAYER UNKNOWN'S BATTLE GROUNDS), although we adjust the picture quality to HDR HD and the frame rate to the limit, there is no obvious fluctuation in the number of frames in one game. As for the temperature of the phone, perhaps because of its plastic back cover, we can still feel it clearly, but it is generally acceptable because it does not affect the overall gaming experience. During the game, we can also feel the vibration caused by the linear motor.
In addition, MEIZU 16T also added the game assistant function in the game, which means that we can adjust the phone performance to the highest state, and turn on the practical functions such as DND, the most interesting thing is that it can display the message prompts of WeChat and QQ on the screen in the form of a barrage, in this way we don't miss important information even when playing games.
It is worth mentioning that MEIZU 16T has added the One Mind 3.5 engine, which can deeply optimize the underlying layer of Flyme and improve overall performance, such as cutting off some software's background refresh wake-up, freezing some memory-consuming software to ensure the phone can allocate more performance to the tasks you need even in entertainment scenarios, such as games.
In terms of photography, the MEIZU 16T uses a rear triple cameras combination, including a 12-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel super wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel portrait blur lens. The main camera is the Sony IMX362, probably taking into account the cost so it did not use the IMX586 of 48 million pixels. It is also worth mentioning that the IMX362 was also a flagship sensor and was used by MEIZU M6 Note that year.
From the proofs of the day, the color of the picture is truly restored, and the detail processing is also good. It may be a little lower than the IMX586 after amplification, but it is enough for daily using. The dynamic range of the entire picture is also quite satisfactory, and the details of the dark part can also be distinguished.
MEIZU 16T also configured a super night scene mode for this main camera. We can see that the brightness of the whole picture has improved a lot, the details of the surface of the object are also very clear, and the highlight is also suppressed. It is worth noting that the exposure time of the MEIZU 16T handheld super night scene is relatively short, so we may feel that there is a sense of smearing on some details and the dark part of the picture. It would be better if you switch to the tripod mode.
In terms of battery life, MEIZU 16T is equipped with a large battery of 4500mAh. After about 5 hours of playing games, watching videos, browsing Weibo and other activities, the battery capacity still remains 58%, which means that ordinary users can use MEIZU 16T for more than a day. In addition, MEIZU 16T is also equipped with a 18W fast charge and can be charged 35% in half an hour at least.
MEIZU 16T is a big-screen flagship mobile phone for entertainment users. Compared with other higher-priced flagship products, MEIZU 16T has done its best in screen, performance, audio and battery life. However, MEIZU 16T has also made concessions in terms of camera and body materials due to cost constraints, but we can be sure that MEIZU is not perfunctory for this product.
In this year's mobile phone market, the price/performance ratio is probably the most competitive battlefield. However, the MEIZU 16T still has a favorable advantage, because it combines many flagship experiences with the Snapdragon 855, UFS 3.0 and completive price. If you don't have a lot of budget and want to get the ultimate mobile entertainment experience, MEIZU 16T may be a good choice for you.
