Many customers are excited about the Google Pixel XL as the company trusted HTC with the development of this new lineup, especially since the Nexus brand was left behind. However, this new smartphone faces strong competition from Meizu MX6. The two devices are very similar although MX6 was released three months earlier than the Google Pixel XL.
It is worth mentioning that Meizu is a widely-popular Chinese company which manufactures high-quality devices for a large customer-based community.
While the Google Pixel XL is made of metal and polished glass, the MX6 goes with a full metal casing. Even so, the Pixel XL is 13 grams heavier than the Meizu MX 6. Although both have a 5.5-inch display, the Meizu model is equipped with IPS LCD technology, whereas the Google device is backed by AMOLED technology.
Furthermore, the Google Pixel XL uses a Quad HD resolution, while the MX6 features a Full HD resolution. Under the hood, the MX6 runs a Mediatek MT6797 Helio X20 processor, whereas the Pixel XL comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 processor.
Even if both have 32GB of built-in internal storage, the Google Pixel XL has 4GB of RAM compared with MX6, which has only 3GB of RAM. However, neither one comes with a microSD card slot, so the memory cannot be expanded to 64GB or 128GB. Google Pixel users can store their photos in Google Drive, so they don’t need a microSD card.
Regarding the camera, there is just a slight difference between the two smartphones. More precisely, the Meizu device comes with a 12-megapixel front shooter, while the Pixel XL has a 12.3-megapixel rear camera.
Also, the 8-megapixel front-facing camera in the Google smartphone is better than the 5-megapixel selfie cam in the Meizu MX6. Both come with a fingerprint sensor for added security, but just the Pixel XL users can make mobile payments.
The two smartphones come with non-removable batteries. They can be charged in around 90 minutes thanks to the rapid charge technology. However, the Pixel XL 3,450 mAh battery is better than the 3,060 mAh battery in the Meizu MX6.
Regarding additional features, both have Type-C port for data transfer and charging, GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi, but only the Google Pixel XL features an NFC chip.
