  • A fantastic (and unjustly unknown) phone

    I had many flagships, like Samsung S10e, S10, S10+, Note 10 +, Sony Xperia 5, Huawei Mate RS Porsche etc... But this Meizu 16th is my favorite! It feels so good in the hand, so qualitative! Photos are great (do we really need 108 mpx, 5 lenses, incredible night modes etc...? How did everyone become all of a sudden a professional photographer who needs a perfect shot in every situation possible? Netflix is great to watch, even though there's no L1 widevine certification on the phone, I honestly don't see the difference with HD. The battery is fine, and most of us charge our phones at night, so there's no need for a huge and heavy battery that lasts 3 days. Not me, anyway. I'd rather have a phone that is slim and light than a huge brick.

    It like a middle device if you want to reach high power but spend less.

  • GOOD PHONE WITH GREAT STEREO SOUND

    I got this lightly used so that maybe affects some performance.
    I love the form factor of 6' inch screen in a reasonably small one handed phone. Design and Screen is all pretty sweet & solid.
    Camera pretty average for a supposed flagship phone! But once I installed GOOGLE CAM APP it improved - night shots are incredible now!!
    Battery does not make it thru the day if your heavy user. Average use it will just last a day!! Performance is pretty fluid.
    The stereo Speakers are Awesome.
    Main issue is the FLYME OS which is like going back to the Dark Ages :( No app drawer, no Notification Badges and lacks the features, customizeation & tricks that other OS's have. So quite frustrating experience. However after many hours of searching and experimenting I found that MICROSOFT LAUNCHER restores the notification Badges, app drawer, customizeation etc for FREE :)
    So pretty cool hardware but if your not used to Flyme OS you may have some adjusting to do !!

  • Meizu have excelled themselves with the 16th!

    Meizu have continued their practice of building excellent flagships with the 16th.
    The 16th is all round great at everything!
    It's fast and responsive at day to day tasks.
    It's also an excellent gaming device running PubG in ultra smoothly. It's a pleasure to game on.
    The screen is spot on. OK it's 1080p only when previously they've included higher resolution screens in their flagships, but it's of excellent quality and you'll have no complaints.
    The stereo sound system is a highlight. Meizu's flagships have always had excellent sound quality and the 16th continues this practice. You can actually hear bass from a smartphone!
    The cameras are great. Night shots are a bit lacking as with the majority of phones but daytime shots are absolutely brilliant.
    The battery is fast charging but it could be faster. And battery life is just OK but it'll last a day of medium use.
    The haptic feedback engine is awesome.
    Lastly the build quality is typically amazing!
    Well done Meizu!

    top cell phone, but lousy update policy, what is the great technology with completely outdated security patches. I can throw it into the water while harvesting rice. Meizu global ??? no way, into the bin !!

    Cool phone for the money!

    Screen, sound, power - everything is on top. The body materials are very nice, and with the Google camera the pictures are no worse than the flagships.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
