The Homtom HT10 is a kind of a mixed bag, it doesn’t feature a fingerprint scanner, but instead it uses iris recognition technology for unlocking the device; it would have been nice to have both!

The Meizu MX6 is a bit of a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 rival in terms of build quality, design and general brand recognition. On the hardware side they’re pretty similar as well, albeit the Meizu MX6 comes in more variants: 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM, and 4GB RAM +64GB ROM; none of them features a Micro SD slot, though.

The Meizu MX6 will shoot photos at a resolution of 12MP thanks to the equipped Sony IMX386 Exmor RS sensor camera, with an aperture of f/2.0 and LED flash, on the front we find a 8MP shooter.

Best Helio X20 Smartphones: Xiaomi Redmi Pro

Even though the Xiaomi Redmi Pro (review coming up) is not having a huge success, we still have to mention this out of the ordinary (for the price range) handset from Xiaomi. The Redmi Pro does indeed feature a neat dual cameras setup, consisting in a Sony 13MP with a focal aperture of f/2.0 main camera and a complementary Samsung 5MP shooter for depth capture. These allow the user to increase or decrease the depth of field, or decide which part of the photo to put on focus.
