[Smartphone] is just to be so fresh – Meizu 16th and Xiaomi 8 Review

Meizu 16th and Xiaomi 8 are the two most cost-effective smart terminals at this stage. No matter from which point of view, there is a tit-for-tat contest between them. Xiaomi 8 started to use for nearly two months, and then 16th started to buy. After the 26th, I finally got it. After a few days of use, today I will look at the appearance of the two “cost-effective” devices from the three aspects of appearance, performance and experience.

1. Appearance

Packaging as the first look of the product, Meizu 16th packaging continues the brand’s consistent style, the texture is still very good, compared to the Xiaomi 8 packaging reveals a cost-saving feeling.

Skip the various links, the mobile phone appeared, this white color I think the work is very good, there are no gaps on the Internet, bulging problems, the overall look is very good, the film on the camera forgot to tear…

Packing the contents, many people say that the shell is cheap, but I like it very much, while keeping the body thin and light, it also has some protection, at least can be safely placed on the table. .

Meizu 16th and Xiaomi 8’s PK, 16th’s chin is slightly smaller – no bright screen can not see, the whole machine is short.

Back PK, obviously 16th higher value.

The suspension of the rubber and the rubber ring, the micro-head friends borrowed, this guys have to look at it. . Meizu is because the light problem seems to have a circle of things, the actual is that the glass and metal are connected by glue, the gap is very narrow, it looks really beautiful, the white panel will not have the problem that the rubber ring turns yellow, Xiaomi can see To a circle of rubber ring, Xiaomi 8 should be the narrowest part of the rubber ring inside the millet phone. Off-topic, the rubber ring of Xiaomi is really mad, and the whole screen of Xiaomi 8se has a rubber ring protruding from the metal body. Xiaomi max3 highlights more exaggerated.

After reading the appearance, the boot is lit up.

Fingerprint under the screen, one of the big selling points.

2. Performance

Entertainment rabbit running points, Meizu 29w points really not a virtual, not open air conditioning room temperature 30 degrees can run to 29w points. . This picture can actually see the advantages of Liu Haiping, the signal and time are placed on the ear, the actual display content of the screen is one more line, put it into the daily use, it means that the desktop can have one more line icon.

The test data of ufs2.1, the two are also very close, the adaptation of mii9 of Xiaomi 8 to the program is really very confusing. .

3. Actual experience

Screen fingerprint

I have to say that oppo is really powerful – the screen light fingerprint, it sounds more powerful than the screen fingerprint. However, in terms of technological evolution, the technology adopted by oppo is indeed a newer generation than the Xiaomi 8 Exploration Edition and Meizu 16th, but each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and ultimately depends on the experience.

One of the purposes of buying Meizu 16th is to feel this advanced technology with a little sci-fi meaning, but the final experience is disappointing. At this stage, in addition to the advantages of being integrated under the screen, The experience of using fingerprints under the screen is far less than that of capacitive fingerprinting, which is widely used today. Of course, the reasons are also multi-faceted. The main difference lies in these two points. First, the identification area, the traditional fingerprint can find the position and use only by touch, but you must use your eyes to find the area and then press your finger. Go up, in order to identify; second, identify the speed, capacitive you just touch it, ok, the fingerprint on the screen must be pressed to identify, and sometimes even press to identify the failure, this is two different fingerprints The difference caused by the principle of identification technology, perhaps the upgrade speed and accuracy of the upgraded version on vivo nex and oppo r17 will be a little higher, but I have not used it specifically, it is not easy to judge, at least the current Meizu 16th screen fingerprint experience is Not comparable to traditional fingerprints. But the back of the fingerprint of Xiaomi 8 is really not easy to use, or the positive fingerprint is good.

Although the experience can’t keep up with the traditional capacitive fingerprints, the fingerprints on the screen have made a good innovation in solving the problems with and without. I believe that with the development of technology, the experience of fingerprints under the screen will continue to improve. In the competition with face id, the fingerprints on the screen at least occupy the advantage in terms of usage habits. Although the face id is more secure, it is still used. There are limitations, the competition between the two, and ultimately the improvement of the user experience, in addition to the burden of increasing the user’s wallet, is good for the user.

Face unlock
Only support ordinary face unlocking, speed is no problem, no infrared emitter, dark environment is useless, but you can also use fingerprints, not a big problem, Xiaomi 8’s face unlocked at this time to pull back a city.


Daily use of battery life is OK, but a dozen games of absolute urine collapse, I am not too concerned about the absolute endurance, after all, I have long been accustomed to charging treasure, always available, but it is a little dissatisfied with Meizu can only be compatible with mtk fast charge, home There is really no device that supports this fast charging protocol. The charging speed of 10W in non-fast charging mode can only be said to be useful. In contrast, Xiaomi 8’s battery life is much more stable, and the daily use is very good. In the case of pure game, Xiaomi 8 is much stronger than Meizu 16th, Xiaomi 8 is also faster to charge, and qc3.0 compatible equipment is also more.

External release

The benefit of the dual speakers is that I can play the chicken game without headphones. The stereo stereo is definitely more comfortable than the mono, but it’s really boring to take this thing to compare the sound quality. It is more meaningful to discuss the number of decibels.


Meizu has a headphone jack, and supports the global USB DAC. When plugging in the HTC patch cord, the system will prompt to use the USB sound card output. Xiaomi 8 does not have a headphone jack, nor does it support a global USB DAC. To use the DAC function of the HTC patch cord, you can only use the Haibei player to force the output. For the mowing method like Xiaomi 8, it really feels a bit ridiculous.

Negative screen

Meizu has fewer functions. The callout mode is drawn from the bottom to the top of the main interface. It can’t be customized. Relatively speaking, Xiaomi has a little more function and supports customization, but it is also limited to the default integrated function. I use very little screen, I don’t feel anything. Basic functions like payment code, calendar, steps, etc. are not lacking. I can’t make any difference. Everyone has it, and I must have it.


Notification push

My usage habit is to give only a few software permissions that I need to notify. Other direct notification notification permissions do not represent the habits of most people. WeChat and other notifications I need are still relatively timely on both phones. There is no case where a bunch of messages are opened when the software is opened. This part has no reference value.


All is 845. If there is a problem with fluency, that’s too bad. On this point, Meizu 16th is still no problem. The feeling of sliding is better than that of Xiaomi 8. The keyboard typing is also very smooth, the feel of linear motor. More first class. Flyme now feels lighter and lighter, and it is also a helpless choice. Miui is no doubt more comprehensive and versatile. There are no problems in the two systems for daily use. There are basically some, just because of the difference in design concepts, in some specific There will be big differences in functionality.

One thing I have a deep impression is that if you open a newly installed software, you will be asked for permission. For example, Weibo International Edition does not give permission to read the mobile phone identification code. This software can also be used normally, so I am not giving this. Permission, Xiaomi will apply again after the first time you refuse it. At this time, there will be an option to no longer ask. After checking this option and then rejecting it, you will not be able to apply for permission again. If you don’t check it again, you will continue to play it in the future. Meizu will refuse it once. In this operation, I think it is more convenient for Meizu.

Flyme was once considered to be the best Android custom system, but it has always been the title of bugme. The root cause is the number of users and the size of the enterprise. There is not enough resources to do system optimization. Here is still optimizing flyme7.X and Android o, the opponent is already doing miui10 and android p. .

Summary: 16th is a very good mobile phone, it is also a good attempt of Meizu, but in this market now, such an attempt is too late, especially now that the output is in a hurry, it has been ten days since the sale, everywhere Out of stock, Huang Zhang as the chief broke the news, saying that the first batch of materials is only 50W, so the amount of stocking, either no money, or no confidence. Meizu is far behind competitors. Even though the 16 series products are bursting, it is still unknown whether there is still a chance to catch up with this last car. .
