  1. I hate to say this but as I see it, this is a DOWNGRADE from its former flagship Meizu pro 5. Pro 5 has much better audio chip than Pro 6S. Pro 5 has a better S/N ratio than the Pro 6. Visit this link and look at the LOUDSPEAKER row.

    One does not need to calculate the S/N ratio. The “noise” on Pro 5 is lower than “Voice”. But its the other way on Pro 6 (Pro 6 and Pro 6S are both using Cirrus logic’s CS43LS36 audio chip) and the Pro 5 has the dedicated amp circuit, 4 NXP transistors, ES9018K2M DAC and OPA1612 amp. In short, way much better than Pro 6S.

    For Mediatek fans out there, my apologies if I say that the Exynos 7420 is better than the Helio X25 when it comes to processing data and stability. The exynos 7420 chip can be found on Samsung’s flagship phones like S6 and S6+. Do I have to say more?

    I had assumed that Meizu focused on the audio quality on Pro 5 and other previous Pro series and the Pro 6S would carry on this legacy. But it seems it does not. The Pro 6S audio solution looks more of an ordinary.
