  • Good midranger with great cameras and several downsides.

    Pros:
    - Reliable Camera quality both day and night. It never disappoints.
    - The sound is loud, albeit little to no bass.
    - Great Battery, at least 24 hours of use with 9+ hours of Battery SOT on Wifi, and 12 hours of use with 6 hours of SOT over 4G/LTE.

    Cons:
    - Slow charging speed: Over 2 hours.
    - performance mediocre, not for gaming. Valid until 2024.
    - Screen is only 60hz which is a real bummer.
    - Build quality is subpar, feels cheap.
    - Buttons size are nearly unfound and cummbersome to find/distinguich, which is a major demirit.
    - Screen glass easy to scratch, glass protector is a must since day 1.

    It's a Pixel, if you like them you have to accept its shortcomings

    It is a comfortable mobile, beautiful in my taste, the bad thing for me is the construction material (aluminum alloy), as soon as it heats up it automatically turns off the mobile data (after 40 minutes of video calling in 4G), it barely reaches 39 ° turned them off. Another thing is the processing of the selfie photos, a facelift is applied that takes away detail. On the other hand, in terms of battery, it is one of the best in Pixel.

    Pixel died after a year

    In principle, everything suited me in the phone, despite the fact that I bought it at an inflated price, due to the lack of official deliveries to my country. But this phone lived with me for exactly a year. It just turned off and won't turn on. For a month there were "alarm calls", when I was driving on the navigator, the phone simply turned off, and it was possible to turn it on only after 3 hours. After some time, this situation repeated itself and was already able to turn it on after 6 hours. Well, now he's completely dead. I don’t know if I got married or something else. Before that, I already had a Pixel 3a and had problems with it too, I used it for about 2 years. And now I do not know whether to buy the next one. What is the point of releasing a smartphone with support for the latest version of androyd for 3 years if it lives only a year or two ?! And it was also annoying in the phone that when typing, he skipped spaces. Maybe the reason was in the glued protective glass, although I used the high sensitivity function. All in all, I would not recommend this unit.

    Fairly good

    The battery lasts a long time and the headphone jack is appreciated, which almost no terminal has. It works quite smoothly, and being Google there are updates to the new Android. I miss the notification led that I have always had so far, and no matter how hard I try, I cannot remove the sound of the camera shutter when taking a photo.

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.
