  • Its a nice phone, but what is the use if it overheats every 10 minutes.

    The sound quality is very poor, I cant recommend using this phone for calls.
    You can only use an extra long charging cable.
    Th constant overheating make the phone unable if you need to use it for longer than 5 minutes.

    • Well Priced
    • Water/ Dust proof

  • I expected great things...

    I dropped the phone from about 4 feet onto a tile floor, which shattered the screen and disabled both cameras.

    A few months later, it fell out of my pocket and is now completely dead.

    It IS waterproof though, which is good.

    The camera quality is poor.

    The flash is poor.

    The sound quality and volume is extremely poor.

    The charging port will not accept a standard micro USB cable, you need the extra long one provided with the phone.

    Battery is constantly compaining about overheating when in use, but it really DOES last a couple of days if you aren't using the phone heavily.

    The phone feels nice and solid, and feels like it should last a long time and be indestrucatble, but it just isn't. I was happy to accept the poor features in exchange for a phone that is truly rugged, but it just isn't good enough.

    The phone lasted less than a year - I won't be replacing it with another.

    hard, tough, big and fat but with flaws

    ignition button unused on the third day, I have to install the screen shutdown app (I use gestures on the ignition) but I can not restart or turn off ... neither logically turn it on as it turns off. after 3 months, it has started to restart only several times by erasing the memory card. It is big and very fat, resistant but awkward, the sound good at the beginning but now it vibrates (badly adjusted shell) the pins are 8mm longer than normal, the gps is very good. is a phone with virtues and defects (very good and very bad at the same time) the camera is very good for very short distances but poor with low light (the flash is pyrrhic) would not repeat or recommend it

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.
