Meizu 16th vs Pocophone F1: the same filling, different price

It’s worth noting right away that both smartphones are players in different leagues, the price tags differ by half (if you take

our retail).Therefore, anyone who is targeting a device from Meizu is unlikely to even glance at Pocophone. However, it is also true in the opposite direction; anyone interested in F1 is unlikely to agree to pay extra money in the amount of two more smartphones for the illusory premium quality of materials. However, the level of filling is approximately the same, which means comparison is still possible.


Appearance is the first thing we value in anyproduct (there are options, of course, with price tags, and then see what it is), and in this regard, Meizu 16th is clearly in isolation from his counterpart: a body of glass and metal, narrow frames, a thin design, no annoying cutout on the screen. Pocophone F1 can only offer a plastic case, in addition, the frame around the screen does not allow to call it frameless, and the cut on the face. The smartphone weighs a little, but still in the hands there is a device from Meizu better.


Displays on smartphones completely different categories,These are the IPS and AMOLED matrices. The first option may be preferred only by people who have an unknown allergy to AMOLED. Here, too, primacy for Meizu is still inexpensive IPS does not have a deep black, less energy efficient, color reproduction is not perfect, the slope is blue, the viewing angles are wide, but not maximal. Nevertheless, the screen is bright, the colors are saturated.

The Meizu display has slightly less definition due tofeatures of the matrix, on this cons are over. The AoD function (information is always displayed on the locked screen) IPS is unavailable, and the fingerprint scanner can be integrated into the screen. By the way, the Pocophone fingerprint scanner is also convenient, located on the back panel, it groans quickly, it works clearly and quickly. In fact, there is practically no sense in the scanner under the display, because behind it it does not bother anyone.


Meizu boasts great stereo sound,multimedia speaker for stereo uses the usual spoken, which does not interfere with the sound actually be stereo. As for the Pocophone, it produces only mono, and the sound is somewhat worse, as in headphones, here Meizu’s musical past and a dedicated amplifier are affected.


With selfie cameras of 20 megapixels both gadgetsgive high-quality images, a little better with the details of the Pocophone. However, without optical stabilization is often smeared, so, you need to do a lot of frames at once, so that you can choose the right one. As for the main camera, here the Meizu device is clearly ahead, since the dual module is installed more advanced, modern. In low light, the Pocophone produces a lot of noise and less detail. Meizu gives out almost perfectly, because it can stretch the shutter speed, and the stabilizer will not let everything cover up. Both smartphones have the same video capabilities - 4K for 30 frames, stabilization works correctly for Meizu, the software for Pocophone often does not cope, and the video sequence begins to float and divide.


Iron filling here on one platform, thistwo equally powerful smartphones. The interface works smoothly and quickly, applications open, work without hesitation. In this regard, both devices are close to the benchmark of speed, but now Meizu runs visually pure applications faster. Both smartphones are powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor, and the cooling system is liquid.

It seems everything should be the same, but no,cooling is different, and this is demanding in resource-intensive applications. Meizu has more copper on the chipset, that is, heat is removed faster. Therefore, the throttling apparatus holds much better. This is especially noticeable in games: at the beginning of the game, both smartphones give out the same frequencies, but with time Pocophone passes, because the cooling system does not cope, and the system reduces the performance of the processor.


Meizu got a battery with a capacity of 3100 mAh, andPocophone 4000 mAh. In general, F1 keeps the charge longer when compared to a moderate level of use. But because of the screen, non-stop video playback Meizu survived almost twice as long - 15 hours, while Pocophone is about eight.

What is the result

Yes, as expected, virtually noneside where Meizu 16th would not win against Pocophone F1. Games are better, photo possibilities are higher, sound is more pleasant, design again. But here the question of adequacy is very acute. For 18-20 thousand, you can get performance and characteristics, a little inferior to the device for 45 thousand.
