Anonymous, 19 Jan 2017enough with this oneplus overhyped stuff... go figure, a brand selling only on invitation and ... moreCorrect, OP3T is overhyped, more expensive and seldomly available while an equally powerful Le Pro 3 with bigger battery, IR blaster and cheaper is widely available in LeMall,Amazon, Target and Bestbuy.
I can't wait for GSMA review of Le Pro 3. =D
Grey1213, 19 Jan 2017Still too expensive when the Oneplus 3T is going for $440. Meizu shouldn't be above $350-380. I think it should, since except SoC it is better device. So 500$ would be fine.. But 500$ in EU or US, not 500$ + Tax
Nice device, but i don't see any reason to buy it and not S7edge.
0,2' bigger screen is not so that could attract me, since it is even more expensive than "original".
Great profit trick making always overclocked the highest variant 128GB model toy make it more attractive
"OnePlus 3T is one of the most memorable phablets throughout 2016 and has much wider availability. It's slightly better equipped than the Meizu Pro 6 Plus, sans the display, and its clean Oxygen OS and fast updates are cherished by many. It's even less expensive than the Meizu Pro 6 Plus so it's worth a consideration."
To me this is a rather precarious floor that Meizu stand on with the Pro 6 Plus. Meaning that the one justification to set it apart should be at least its overall build quality to cover the asking RRP.
Because if it's not, then I fail to see why adopters couldn't opt for 1+3T instead
Ritzie, 19 Jan 2017Or the ZTE Axon 7 which has now the 6GB variant and priced at the same levelenough with this oneplus overhyped stuff... go figure, a brand selling only on invitation and only on the net. Go for bette rbrands, this oneplus is only hype not backed up with serious commercial strategies

... moreRitzie niether the meizu website nor GSM arena mentions a 6 GB version so I am prone to think there isn't one... http://meizu.com/products/pro6plus/spec.html , just translate the site to English. As far as retailers go I don't trust those Aliexpress and the like. Last time I got my phone from honorbuy and I was content with a small remark they didnt mention that there were chinese and global versions.
As far as the Axon 7 goes technically speaking it provides roughly the same performance but with the addition of stereo speakers. If one would be looking for capability the axon 7 is slightly better imho, I'd still go with the Meizu though as a fan.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 using a Helio X20 only manages 83 hours.
That is very poor for a 4100mAh and only a 1080p screen.
But the S6 Active using an efficient Exynos 7420 chipset endures for 109 hours and this is with a QHD screen and "just" 3500mAh.
Thanks GSMArena for this review. Are you guys planning to at least do time saver version on Meizu Pro 6S ? I'm eyeballing on that babe since the announcement. It has almost 20% bigger battery than Pro 6 but keeps the same footprint.

Wait a minute. Where is the night time demo of the 10-ring LED flash that was praised so much in the review???

BTW I hope Meizu (or any maker) never resorts to using Mediatek Helio X25 chipsets for their flagships again. I hope they have realized their mistake with the inefficient Meizu Pro 6.

The reviewer said:
"The Pro 6 was the first to go with the less intrusive bands, but the iPhone 7 lineup made those famous. "
I thought it was Zenfone 3 who came out first than iPhone 7 and introduced the near invisible antenna lines?
