The Meizu Pro 5 and the Meizu Pro 5 have their fair share of similarities and differences, display-wise. Quite-surprisingly, the older Pro 5 beats the Pro 6 in terms of screen size, being armed with a 5.7-inch screen, which is slightly larger compared to that of the Pro 6 (5.2-inch screen). However, it seems that these two phones get along well when we talk about their display resolutions (their screens both feature a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels).

Physical Features

Comparing their physical dimensions, the Meizu Pro 6 triggers a winning streak over the Meizu Pro 5. With regards to their weight, the Pro 6 gets the nod of approval, weighing 160 grams, which is reasonably-lighter compared to the Pro 5, which weighs in at 168 grams. We also observed sizeable differences in their height and width. The Pro 5 stands 156.7 millimeters tall and measures 78 millimeters wide, while the Pro 5 gets a more-compact profile, as implied by its 147.7-millimeter height and 70.8-millimeter width. In terms of thickness, the Pro 6 seals the deal, measuring 7.25 millimeters thick, which is 0.25 millimeters less compared to the Pro 5 and its 7.5-millimeter thickness. We have to consider, however, that the Pro 6 gets a more pocket-friendly profile at the cost of having a smaller screen (5.2-inch screen versus the Pro 5's 5.7-inch display). But still, with their less-than-nine-millimeter thickness, both phones can still make it to our list of Thinnest Phones as of 2016.
