Think of this as anything but not as a review article or a featured post or a device hands on kind of thing too.
This maybe just a show-off thread for the Pro 6. A show-off on the aesthetics of the device and if your mind permits to accept, as a photography thread (sorry for the amateurish photography that's the best I could do) maybe.
Here it goes; firstly I’d like to thank each and every living spirit I’ve come across in the forum. A special thanks to Moderators for the involving stuff, namely Brian (first person that I communicated on the forum), Rudraksh (a constant supporter), Ultrametric (for all the loving posts I read were his mostly, between Jan-April 2016 and he’ still amazing) and all others who participated in the IPL Contest 2016 (thanks for making me win).
Big thanks to the admins JackZhang and also to KK Panda (for always being in touch throughout the shipping).
The story starts with the winner results being announced. I say you (to Euro cup prediction contest winners specifically), winning is not the end, sitting patiently till the prize shows up is the hard thing :’D. After a real month passing away, I got the Pro 6 in the desired color and variant.
I was pretty much excited after the winning; I watched every video posted on internet about Pro 6 irrespective to the language spoken in the video, read the Launch article on forum over and over again, read the few review articles that were available – had the pictures of this device on my M2.
After the prize was shipped to the nearest courier hub, I was the first guy to call the hub’s proprietor that day and the creepy guy who was standing out of the store before it even opened.
Moment of surprise:
I see the DHL packed parcel, take a blade at the courier hub, ripped the package open to find the product box unsealed (enquiries made later cleared that a sealed product was sent and maybe customs had checked the contents blah blah) and then the excitement died out.Thought of making a neat legit unboxing video and this happened. Anyways, while I was commuting back to home, I was just curious to peer into the contents of the box. Didn’t switch on the device but, just saw the contents. After reading many articles and watching videos, I wasn’t really excited to see the Pro 6 in flesh cos I already felt familiar with this creature.
Life’s Rush :
Though I had the parcel arriving during a weekend, I was totally occupied with Life, to make any kind of initial impressions thing or any article on the device. Slowly and slowly it became a part of my life. First thing I liked in the Pro 6 is its loudspeaker, I literally liked it. When I was playing music while travelling in a friend’s car (Maruti Alto), he literally thought it was music on the car’s audio system (reminding again matches sound system installed on Alto- a basic sound system, loud and clear enough).
It’s been 2 weeks and the device slipped out of the pocket once too. Leaving the specs and all other technicalities to professionals. I liked the device, beauty wise, performance-wise (average adult user here – all I do is play DH5 and use UC Browser that’s it apart from whatsapp, messenger and watching videos).
I got the Déjà vu feels whenever I put the Pro 6 to charging cos it picks up charging superfast. Just an hour and you are ready to go (this only happened to the Java devices I used prior to droid). It gave me an average 8 controlled hrs of usage everytime, I am sure it wouldn’t last 3 hrs if you are a power user. Luckily I am neither a power user nor am I far away from electrical source of Power. But,you gotta definitely think a bazillion times if you’d want to buy a Pro 6 to be a lifesaver during crisis times? (You'd be the first one to get killed )
This is the first AMOLED Screened device that I am ever using, the colors are the brightest and the blacks will literally freak the grey matter out of your eyes. Frankly speaking, every time I viewed a nice picture or a HD video on the Pro6 I had an eyegasm for sure. Then there is this Eye protective mode (where blue light is filtered), really a nice inclusion, I definitely use it on those extensive browsing modes I am on nights, puts me to sleep slowly too sometimes .
The loudspeakers give you the clearest music you can ever listen to, but when you are trying to experience coupled with a nice pair of earphones it doesn’t stand out. Maybe this audio enhancement would be fixed in the next century’s Flyme update ( kidding). I used Sony MDR-EX15 Series earphones which gave a great output on Meizu M2 with or without Dirac HD. On Pro 6, the 128 bit rate songs were really lower than they usually are and also the in call volume through receiver sounds very low in outdoor environments.
Finally the Camera:
Not a professional in photography here, but I manage to click some decent shots accidentally and I liked the details, colors in the output. Still, could’ve been a bit better too, 21 MP’s with right optimization should kill every scenery, sadly that never happened. Maybe I am really not good at using a camera.
My favorite bits:
I liked the unique antennae bands, the metal uni-body design and the groove slot for volume and power button, fingerprint sensor which is pretty quick, loudspeaker and the stutterless performance.
Pics of Pro 6 through M2, rest all through Pro 6
