Very nice aesthetic. Thin and symmetrical edges, without notch or pop-up camera. It's rare.

53 inch screen.. One hand operation is not great but still good and feel comfortable..
No SD card, no radio, no 3.5 jack, small battery, very bad global rom support, never buy Meizu again.
Another bad phone without important for me 3.5 jack.
People, 26 Apr 2019Good phone but don't have micro-SD slotwhat are you doing with a phone, if 128 or 256 GB is not enough?
AsurasWrath, 24 Apr 2019Anyone who's owned a Meizu device, what is Meizu like in terms of software updates and support... moreI have Meizu Pro 7 Global Stable and it came with Android 7.0 in 2017. Now, after 5 updates, the latest Global Stable firmware (2019-4-10) it's also based on Android 7.0. So, in two years, they didn't upgrade Android version. Only their custom Android got updated from Flyme 6 to Flyme 7. And the things are the same for China Stable (and China Beta) versions, they are still based on Android 7.0. It's a shame, in my opinion. I guess this model was destined to be buried with Android 7.0. Their higher model, Pro 7 Plus, received the same treatment.
Somebody147, 17 Jan 2019Nah mate, be excited for what you want not the most popular ones. plus this phone looks quite ... moreYes helping smaller company which has intention to make interesting device is good for competition and help them to grow bigger. If they go bigger, they can hire more people to develop Android update faster.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2019According to current available info, this phone isn't as good as its predecessor Meizu 16th. T... morePeople complaint about 3010 mAh battery and no NFC on 16th. Now Meizu remove 3.5mm jack to make more space for battery and NFC but not making it too thick (for style).

Sapphire Blue, 24 Apr 2019This is the most compact flagship in 2019.
It is only 151.9mm tall and 73.4mm wide.That's not "only". Phone looks nice, but it's too big. It can't be operated with one hand. I'm 186 cm tall, which is taller than 95% of people worldwide, and have larger hands than the average person but still can't use such big phones with one hand. They even removed 3.5 mm jack which is a bad thing.
The most compact flagship for now is Samsung Galaxy S10e. Sony Xperia 1 and Huawei P30 are both smaller than Meizu 16s, but still too big compared to a normal-sized phone like S10e.
It is one of the best buys out there IMO. It checks all the right marks for me. Shame about the lack of updates, but hey lets hope it will change in the future. I'll buy one as soon as the global version comes out.
Anyone who's owned a Meizu device, what is Meizu like in terms of software updates and supports. Is Meizu another Umidigi and Oppo meaning you'll buy the phone and then you'll probably receive 1 OTA update that fixes minor software issues or will you receive monthly security updates with potential of getting updated to Android Q when it comes out
ESP, 24 Apr 2019Does the NFC supports Google pay? And does the camera have OIS?From Gizmochina April 23, 2019.
The primary sensor is a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with an f/1.7 aperture and 4-axis OIS.
It also works better with wet hands and supports AliPay, WeChat Pay, and Google Pay.
The Meizu 16s has NFC with payment support.
Looks like they nailed it. Definite winnner as long as the software isn't trash.
