Meizu has released a new trio of smartphones to celebrate its 15-year anniversary: medium, upper middle and flagship. With Meizu 15, the Chinese company covers the most important price ranges on the market and offers premium phones at very competitive prices.
Another bonus device, which is very convenient to buy, is, of course, Honor. It seems that Huawei decided to release a trio of P20, consisting of two flagships and an average level, and a segment of the upper middle range (well, it's more flagship than a simple upper midrange range) was left to its subbrand Honor.
Considering that Meizu 15 and Honor 10 are two important 2018 smartphones of the year in the same price range, we decided to compare Meizu 15 vs Honor 10 to help potential buyers with their choice.

In a few words, we believe that the Meizu 15 will be a more premium device when it comes to multimedia, while its opponent has a more attractive design (at least to my taste) and better performance.
Meizu 15 has a more interesting display thanks to Super AMOLED technology, which is able to provide more saturated colors and deep black hues. In addition, it has stereo speakers that offer a more powerful sound. The camera should also be better on Meizu 15: as you can see from our review, the picture quality is impressive, even in low light conditions.
On the other hand, Honor 10 has a more powerful chipset, so it will undoubtedly have better performance. It also has a large battery, but given the low consumption of the Meizu 15 AMOLED display and the effective Snapdragon 660, it remains to be seen whether the Honor 10 will provide a longer battery life.
Meizu 15 vs Honor 10: Prices
The cost of Meizu 15 is about $ 395 / € 323 in China in the base configuration, and Honor 10 is from $ 414 / € 338. So, who should you buy? Well, it depends on your needs. If you care about performance, the camera, and you want to impress yourself and your friends with the aesthetics of your device, then choose Honor 10. Simply put, "Honor 10" looks more impressive among the two.
But if you want excellent camera performance and the best multimedia experience, stop at Meizu 15 because of your display and stereo speakers. Note that Meizu still uses the 16 display: 9 without a cutout. This can be a big difference for some potential customers.
