Umi Z is the new flagship from Umi. The mobile will be made out of metal with 3D nano cutting technology, with Helio X27 SoC and with the premium chipset NXP® TFA9890 for the sound. On the other hand, we have the Meizu Pro 6, with also premium metallic design, with 3D touch feature and Cirrus Logic chipset for the sound.
The Umi Z is equipped with a 5.5 Inch 2.5D Sharp Screen, with 1920 x 1080 (441ppi) screen resolution. The mobile is made totally by metal, which gives the idea of a very stable mobile. On the other hand uses a 3D nano cutting technology, which creates a unique sensation when holding it. The display is of LTPS IGZO technology and is made from Sharp. The display is protected from Dragontrail glass, to be sure that nothing will happen to it.
The Meizu Pro 6 has also mettalic design. The screen is a little smaller from the Umi Z, since it is 5.2 inch, with Gorilla Glass III protection. The screen resolution is the same with the Umi Z, 1920 x 1080.
The Umi Z is hidding under the hood the Deca Core Helio X27 MTK6797X clocked up to 2.6GHz. This SoC uses a tricluster architecture that lets the CPU use as many as it needs cores, increasing by this way the autonomy of the device and reducing the energy usage. The mobile has also 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. If you think that 32GB is not enough, you can expand the internal storage by adding a TF card expansion up to 256 GB, The Umi Z has installed Android 6.0 but very soon will get Nougat.
The Meizu Pro 6 has under the hood the Deca Core Helio X20 MTK6797 clocked up to 2.5 GHz. For memory, the Pro 6 has also 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. Unfortunately at Meizu you cannot expand this storage. Meizu Pro 6 uses Flyme 5.0 as OS.
The Umi Z has for main camera on the rear a 13 MP SAMSUNG S5K3L8 PDAF and laser autofocus with Dual Flashlight and on the front a 13 MP. The camera uses 4 LED dual tone flash for much better night shots. Features also 802.11 a/b/g/n with dual wifi 2.4GHz/5GHz, USB Type C, Bluetooth 4.1. Supports Dual SIM, NANO SIM + NANO SIM or the TF Card. The Umi Z supports B20 which is important for European countries. As for the sound, the Umi Z is equipped with the premium sound chipset NXP® TFA9890, which offers boost of the bass up to 9.5V with the help of a DC/DC converter, giving an amazing sound quality. It also features fingerprint sensor with touch ID 2.1, which unlocks the mobile in 0.1-0.3s.
The MEizu Pro 6 is equipped with a 5 MP front camera for selfies and a 21.16 MP rear camera, with Flash Light, Auto Focus and Multi-shot. Supports of course WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1. It doesn’t support B20 and NFC, which is needed for several payments. For charging does it form the USB Type C that has. For the sound, the Meizu features a Cirrus Logic chipset to give marvelous sound.
The Umi Z is equipped with a 3780mAh Sony Battery. The Umi Z supports PE+ Quick Charge.
Unfortunately Meizu Pro 6 comes with a 2500mAh, which nowadays is thought as small. I would prefer it with at least 3500 mAh battery.
Umi Z and Meizu Pro 6, seems to be two very good mobiles. But comparing them I could say that Umi Z hasa some features that are much better from Meizu’s, so I could say from this comparison, Umi is on the first position. Umi Z is in presales right now, but still you can preorder it from cafago.com for the unique price of 219.86$ and shipments will start after January 26th.
