  • Excellent semi flagship smart phone

    Been using LG v40 thinq for last 3 month, excellent back cameras, excellent screen, even more excellent audio. Unfortunately it has one big bug, can't receive call while on LTE network. More unfortunate, the phone is a 2nd set from AT&T USA. And there is no way to update the software which dated back in 2018. Usable for other thing but can't receive call. So enter the P30.

    There was 7.7 sale on Lazada Malaysia with P30 selling for MYR1499 or ~350USD.

    Compared to LG v40, P30 is better on battery life, faster charging 22w, better 32mp selfie camera, 3x optical zoom, better night mode.
    Extremely fast face recognition. Gesture navigation is fast and fluid, with very minimal lag.

    LG v40 is better in audio, both have 3.5mm earphone jack, traditional back fingerprint sensor is faster and accurate compared to P30 in screen sensor. Always on screens on v40 has many options, style as compare to P30 one and only style.

  • Fantastic All Rounder!

    I got this over the Pro version as it is more manageable and pocketable. It loses a few things from the Pro but these are luxuries, not necessities. The phone is comfortable to hold in one hand and has a gorgeous screen that's just the right size. Performance is snappy, it doesn't overheat like the Mate 20 Pro does and battery life is excellent. The triple camera system on the back is fantastic, almost on a par with the Pro. If you can live without the little extras on the Pro, this is the one to get!

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.
