Non-Liu Haiping visual experience is better


▲ Meizu 16th uses 6 inches non-Liu Haiping

The full screen is already the current trend. The Meizu 16th also uses a 6-inch full screen. After using the full screen, you can see that the Meizu 16th screen is more beautiful than the Liu Haiping mobile phone. Meizu 16th screen resolution For 2160x1080, although it does not reach the 2K level, the 6-inch size also brings 402PPI resolution, and the high brightness of 450cd/m2 and the high contrast ratio of 1000:1 make the Meizu 16th screen very good. display effect.


▲Weibo reading

First of all, in some social applications, Meizu's non-Liu Haiping allows the entire screen space to be used, which is the same as the non-full screen mobile phone. The upper part of the Liu Haiping mobile phone has components such as a camera and an earpiece, and the screen is only on both sides of the bangs. Can be used to display information such as power, signal, etc. In addition, Meizu 16th Super mBack can be hidden in some full-screen applications, but for general applications will occupy the position below the screen, but the bottom horizontal design has made Super mBack take up the screen Become the smallest.


▲ game

In terms of games, you can see that Meizu 16th can display the game screen on the whole screen when playing games, and Liu Haiping mobile phone needs to be carefully optimized for the game screen. The transition effect makes the game screen darken on the left and right sides, reducing the screen due to the bangs. The influence of the game screen, this design is not a perfect design, making the game screen smaller.


▲18: 9 video playback


▲21: 9 video playback

In addition, Meizu 16th also provides gesture navigation function, through the gesture operation to achieve the HOME button, return and call the application background function.

Screen fingerprint:


▲ Meizu 16th side fingerprint recognition

Meizu believes that the back fingerprint recognition is a kind of backwardness of experience, so Meizu 16th adopts the screen fingerprint recognition scheme. At present, there are not many mobile phones using the screen fingerprint recognition scheme. The fingerprint recognition technology in the screen hides the fingerprint recognition sensor at the bottom of the screen. Unlike ordinary capacitive sensors, Meizu 16 uses an optical fingerprint sensor to draw fingerprint images by sensing different reflections of light on the surface of the finger. Meizu 16th requires offline Samsung fingerprints to use Samsung custom AMOLD screens, AMOLED screens. The diamond pixel arrangement is different from the fingerprint recognition sensor pixel arrangement method, which will cause the pattern formed by the light cast on the sensor to have a moiré effect recognition. Meizu will rotate the fingerprint recognition sensor angle by 13.7° to remove the moiré from the misalignment. Internal component stacking needs to be redesigned.

The screen fingerprint on Meizu 16th supports the screen to wake up. When the screen is off, the fingerprint symbol appears on the screen. Pressing the finger at the fingerprint recognition position can unlock the function, and the whole unlocking speed is very fast, and Meizu has this screen fingerprint recognition. Supporting the fingerprint payment function of Alipay, WeChat and other APP, there is no big difference between the operation experience and the physical fingerprint recognition.

Face recognition unlock

Flyem7 brings a new way to unlock the phone - face unlocking, Meizu 16th uses front camera and AI algorithm to unlock the face, the recognition process takes only 0.1 seconds. Meizu 16th also added the function of raising the screen. With the face recognition unlock function, the system unlocking speed can be greatly improved, and the unlocking operation steps can be simplified.

Super mBack:


▲ Meizu 16th HOME button

Meizu 16th's comprehensive screen design makes it impossible to put down the mBack HOME button on the front side. Instead, it is a horizontal line under the screen. This screen point and mBack come together once. The position of the small dot at the bottom of the screen has pressure sensing, which can realize mBack. Tap Back, press the HOME button function to achieve the same operation experience as the previous mBack entity button.


▲Super mBack basic operation

Meizu will use the pressure on the screen to realize the function of the HOME button on the screen of the Meizu 16th. At the same time, it also retains the function of tapping and returning, so that the small dots in this screen have the same operation mode as the previous mBack, The good operation experience of mBack. The Meizu 16th screen has a special pressure sensor in the horizontal position. Although it is a virtual button, it can realize the operation feeling like physical buttons with pressure sensing, and there will be vibration feedback when pressed strongly, and touch There is no vibration feedback when returning.


▲ background switching operation

Meizu 16th provides 3 kinds of background switching modes, which are based on gesture operation, and the gesture operation is another mode of Meizu Flyme system that brings good interaction in addition to the HOME button. The operation of sliding up the application background is Meizu user. Familiar, the newly added horizontal sliding bottom bar switches the background task and long presses the blank area of ​​the bottom bar, follows the finger sliding, and switches the background task. The two switching modes are the charm blue full screen proprietary, which can improve the background application. Switching speed, two adjacent background apps can be switched quickly, which simplifies the operation of background switching.

Gesture navigation

The gesture navigation provided by Meizu 16th mainly implements the HOME key, return and application background functions. After gesture navigation, the screen horizontal line on Meizu 16th will disappear, and all operations of the navigation bar will become gesture operations. The Meizu 16th's under-screen horizontal line has excellent operating experience, but it will occupy the screen space. Now gesture navigation just solves these problems one by one.

The gesture navigation on Meizu 16th mainly provides three functions. It can be turned up and down at the bottom of the screen to realize the return function. The left button slides up at the bottom of the screen to realize the HOME button function. After the long slide at the bottom of the screen, the app background function is paused. The original screen of Meizu The function of the application background in the bottom slide has been canceled, so the user needs some time to get used to the new operation.

Meizu 16th not only has gesture navigation at the bottom of the screen, but also does not navigate through the screen to achieve gesture navigation. This function does not seem to be explained in this system update. In the Meizu 16th screen, the left and right edges of the screen are short-slip to achieve the return function, on the left and right edges of the screen. The long-slide position realizes the HOME key function, and the application background function is paused after the long-slip position on the left and right edges of the screen, so that the left and right side-sliding operations are more convenient.

Meizu 16th touch engine:

Meizu 15 first proposed the concept of 'tactile engine'. After the precise simulation of the engineer, it created a unique tactile feedback system belonging to Meizu. The built-in horizontal linear motor mEngine realized a richer vibration effect. Just the right tactile feedback, with For better human-computer interaction. Meizu 16th continues this mEngine design, and has been upgraded to bring a new algorithm, more scene adjustment automatically adapts to the touch, provides feedback on simulated heartbeat, scroll wheel, etc., and more ringtones. Music rhythm shakes.


▲mEngine

The Meizu 16th series uses the second-generation mEngine touch engine. This advanced horizontal linear motor has a quiet, powerful vibration effect. The quick start and stop allows him to simulate rich tactile feedback. Meizu further upgrades the tactile feedback system and increases the number. Ten scenes are supported, and the mEngine touch engine is equipped with a high-voltage motor driver chip. The instantaneous acceleration and emergency stop is more powerful. The new Music Link function separately adjusts the vibration effect for each ringtone in the phone, which will follow the music. The rhythm is rhythmic.

Meizu 16th test summary: Bornism and innovation

If iPhone X is the ancestor of Liu Haiping, then all the mobile phones using Liu Haiping are paying tribute to iPhone X. The design of copying iPhone may have become the 'hidden rule' when designing mobile phones by mobile phone manufacturers. Perhaps it should be called Bringing in. But in fact, which mobile phone manufacturer did not pay tribute to Apple? Which mobile phone does not have the design on the iPhone, there are now or future designs? Even Meizu has a tribute to Apple. Of course, The simple use of the originalism without modification is directly superficial, which ultimately brings about a serious homogenization problem. I don’t see Liu Haiping’s mobile phones almost always look the same. Meizu is not willing to adopt this kind of practice. Meizu has its own opinions and does not follow the trend.

You can say that Meizu's mEngine pays tribute to Apple's linear motor. Meizu's mTouch is a tribute to Apple's front fingerprint recognition. But Meizu's design of paying homage to Apple is not a simple application, but rather Designing these functions becomes your own thing to apply to the Meizu mobile phone to bring a better experience. mEngine brings more feedback effect, Meizu 16th can achieve vibration with the ringtone. mTouch is not only a front fingerprint recognition, but It is a HOME button, which can realize the HOME button of mBack function, simplifying the three big buttons of Android. Although Meizu has 'take it', Meizu has the innovation of 'take it' instead of simple application, the level is simpler than simple The 'takenism' is high, and it has become the object of the mobile phone 'tribute'.

From the Meizu 16th series, there are still many innovative things. I also saw the persistence of Meizu, insisting on the essence of 'Meizu Design', sticking to the ultra-narrow border, and insisting on not following the trend. Meizu’s ultimate pursuit of mobile phones may use 'pursuit source In the love of 'this sentence to describe. Meizu 16th shoulders the burden of focusing on the high-end market, Meizu 16th with the best configuration, using the best design and crafts of Meizu, and strive to create a true flagship. From Meizu 15 started the small test knife to the current Meizu 16th, we saw the determination of Meizu to reinvigorate the high-end, Meizu 16th series can let Meizu reproduce the previous glory? We will wait and see.
