Meizu MX6 Review: Six Of A Kind: Performance

Performance in benchmarks

The Meizu MX6 is powered by the MediaTek Helio X20 chipset. It's a pretty impressive chipset and it's almost identical to the Helio X25, which has been featured in higher-priced phones such as the Meizu Pro 6. The two chipsets share the architecture but the X25 has slightly higher clockspeeds.


The Helio X20 is comprised of a tri-cluster processor: a couple of Cortex-A72 (2.3GHz), a quad-core Cortex-A53 (1.9GHz) and a low-power, quad-core Cortex-A53 (1.4GHz). The sheer number of cores sounds impressive and we hope the GPU - a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU - will be able to haged up the pace.

Let's kick things off with the impressive Central Processing Units (CPU) setup and see how it fares against the competition. In terms of single-core performance, the Cortex-A72 isn't too far off compared to the Kryo Central Processing Units (CPU) in the OnePlus 3 (Snapdragon 820).

We are beginning to doubt how the multi-core GeekBench test works, as those results are far from what we'd expected from a 10-core processor. There is a fine chance the app works only with the two A72 cores, which will elaborate the results below. And if we are right, then the score means the Helio X20 has a monstrous processor.

AnTuTu is a compound benchmark, which takes into account storage performance, Random-Access Memory (RAM) and GPU prowess. The Snapdragon 820 inside the OnePlus 3 is the only one to overpower the Meizu MX6 becautilize of its far superior GPU. The Qualcomm's custom Kryo cores probably helped, too.

The other compound test - the BaseMark Operating System (OS) II 2.0 - ranks the MX6 below most of the Redmis, including the Redmi Pro with the same chipset. The Flyme launcher and some under the hood optimizations are probably at fault.

The Helio X20 chipset uses a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, the same GPU as in the Kirin 955 that powers the Huawei P9 Plus flagship and the more affordable Honor 8. elegant Qualcomm put a solid GPU in the S650 and the Redmi Note 3 remains quite competitive, while the Helio X10 leaves plenty to be desired.

We are quite excited with the performance the Meizu MX6 offers in a €300 package, though we'll establish later there are superior contenders for equal or less cash and that could harm the MX6 down the road. The unconventional Central Processing Units (CPU) has a lot to offer, especially when pushed to the max. You should be aware though the MX6 may acquire a bit warmer than the comfortable temperature, but we guess that's the price to pay for such a beast.

Meizu MX6 is a fine upgrade over its predecessor and offers adequate performance for the class. It isn't a benchimprint topper, but the MX6 is nicely balanced for multi-tasking and gaming performance, while there is a monstrous processing potential to tap into when needed.
