Meizu is known for its cheap phones with great hardware (for their price). And keeping that reputation alive is the Meizu M6s, Meizu’s latest mid-range offering. Priced at Rs. 20,000, the Meizu M6s is a phone you want to keep your eye on, just like many of its smartphones currently circling around in the market.
All Metal Goodness
For a phone at this price, the Meizu M6s is doing us a favor, sporting an all metal unibody design. This gives the Meizu M6s a premium feel compared to plastic offerings of well-known manufacturers. The front of the phone is taken up by the screen with minimal bezels on the top and bottom. There is no physical home button, the on screen button performs a variety of functions depending on different levels of pressure applied. Surprisingly, the fingerprint scanner is neither on the front or back, it’s on the side where a notch is present.
Both the cameras on the Meizu M6s are Samsung made sensors. The front camera is an 8MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0, while the main camera is a 16MP sensor, also with an aperture of f/2.0. The main camera also has phase detection autofocus and a dual-tone dual LED flash. Video recording capabilities max out at 1080p for both cameras.
For a phone around the Rs. 20,000 mark, the hardware in the Meizu M6s isn’t half bad. With 3GB of RAM and options for 32/64 GB of storage, the Meizu M6s is decent for light games and multimedia usage. The processor in the Meizu M6s is Samsung’s Exynos 7872, which is a hexa-core chipset. The battery in the Meizu M6s is a 3000mAh cell, which judging by the other specs should last you a day or slightly more. The Meizu M6s ships with Android 7.0 Nougat, although we would have liked to see Android 8.0 Oreo, since it’s been over half a year of its release.
