Meizu Pro 7 Plus Hands-On, First Impressions
Apart from the Meizu Pro 7, Meizu also released its bigger and slightly beefier sibling, namely the Meizu Pro 7 Plus.
Just like its little twin, the Meizu Pro 7 Plus feels good and premium in the hands. It also sports the same all-metal body design but since it’s bigger, it comes with a bit more heft to it. Also, holding this phone with one hand feels a little bit difficult, especially when you have small ones.
It sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which equates to 518ppi. Display quality is crisp with rich colors. Up top, you’d spot its 16MP f/2.0 front camera, while down below is the Home button, which also acts as the fingerprint scanner, and the Back button.
On the right side houses the power/lock button, and the volume keys.
While on the upper left side, you will find the hybrid SIM card tray.
Down below houses the speaker grille, the 3.5mm headset jack, the main microphone, and the USB Type-C port.
Flip on its back and you will see its 2-inch AMOLED secondary display called the Fenêtre display, which translates to ‘Window’ in English. Also found here is its 12MP f/2.0 Sony IMX386 dual rear cameras with dual-LED flash. You’d also see the Meizu logo rotated vertically on the corner right of the phone. Fiddling with the Fenêtre display is been a pretty fun and unique experience. It’s responsive but it may take some time to get used to it.
Powering the Meizu Pro 7 is a MediaTek MT6799 Helio X30 Deca-core processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, Android 7.0 Nougat, and 3500mAh battery.
