Description

A large, 5.7-inch phone, the Meizu PRO 5 is a phone destined first and foremost for China. It lives up to the ‘pro’ name with its hardware: it features the Exynos 7420 system chip that powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note5, one of the best performing chips out there. In terms of connectivity, the Pro 5 features a new baseband for ‘4G+’ connectivity (300Mbps) and it also brings Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support. It’s also notable, that the Pro 5 comes with USB Type C connector with fast charge support -- the phone charges to 65% in just 30 mins (the charger supports up to 12V).

Displaybenchmark

  • Physical size:
    • 5.7 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 386 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    • Super AMOLED
