  • Not a good phone

    I had problems with this phone since day 1
    - GPS didn't work at all.
    - Both cameras are definitelly the worst I've seen (they don't pick up the colors as they are, -always kind of blueish-, dont focus well, and the worst part, the back camera always has a blurry left top corner that makes pictures ridiculous). Long story short, I NEVER use the cameras on my phone anymore. Really annoying.
    - The vibration engine stopped working after couple of months.
    - Volume keys stopped working after half year or so.
    - When the phone loses coverage it doesn't recieve it back unless I restart it.
    - Sometimes it'll shut down for no reason and will take forever to turn back on.
    I contacted Elephone's customer service, they checked it, and the only feature I got fixed was the GPS, which works well for most of the time now. For the rest, I got zero feedback/fixes. So I'm stuck with a phone with usless cameras and (some) keys, no vibration, and some performance issues...
    Cant wait to replace it.

    Pros
    • Battery is decent lasting
    • Screen quality is great
    • Memory
    Cons
    • Cameras (so bad!)
    • Vibration engine stopped working
    • Volume keys don't work
    • Coverage problems

  • Outstandingly good phone.....by far best value for money in the market (especially Helio X25 4GB 64GB @ £127.00)

    Let me start by saying that I get great battery life. My phone shipped with Android 6 but received an OTA update to 7.1.1. Maybe people with battery issues had bugs that are now fixed.

    Different people look for different phone attributes. My priorities are mainly based on size and weight. For me 5.5" is the Goldilocks size and I want thin and light but without compromise on battery life.

    7.6mm and 150g is absolutely amazing.

    Great performance. Amazing high end feel for such a stylish phone at this price point. I should have bought the 64GB version because when you've got a phone this good you tend to use it a lot therefore more storage would have been better for me.

    No hesitation in recommending.

    Will be buying another S7 in 3 years time unless someone betters this phone for the price.

    Pros
    • 5.5" is ideal size
    • 7.6mm
    • Styling (virtually no bezels)
    • Weight 150g
    • Performance
    • Battery life
    Cons
    • Apparently back scratches
    • easily so I've got a back

  • It's a ok phone with awesome design, but the screen is not curved.

    If you want curved display, don't buy this phone. Only glass is curved and that creates illusion of like 10-20 pixels being curved.
    The phone looks very nice. The design is awesome and feels light and premium in hand. The back is not glass but plastic and it easily gets scratched so the case is a must. Screen is scratch resistant to an extend but I didn't test it with thing sharper than kitchen knife.
    Battery isn't that great. In comparison to OnePlus One, which has almost the same battery capacity, OPO lasts much longer (almost twice).
    Display looks awesome. The colors are nice. The brightness can go really high.
    Signal is often lost. HSDPA+ doesn't really stay on. It's always at 3G (~380kbps). I haven't tested 4G. WiFi is ok, but could be better.
    GPS often breaks but there are some fixes on the internet. It needs calibration and then works ok.
    Camera is terrible. Even cheaper chinese phones have better camera.

    Pros
    • Display
    • Deca-core
    • 4GB RAM
    • 64GB + 128GB
    • Clean OS
    Cons
    • Battery should last much more
    • No capacitive buttons
    • Camera is worst I've ever seen

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
