    DO NOT BUY IT !!!

    NO. NO. AND NOT! DON'T BUY IT, seriously, it's a cell phone HELL. Disappointing in every redactable sense. You can't even listen to music while playing something light. You are lagging at all costs, it is bad even for texting. The only good thing about this device is its design, the rest WRONG, the camera is regular to poor, the performance is so bad that it does not even run among us, it directly closes it, it does not have 1/2 GB of RAM, the usable are approx 380 MB, the audio is powerful, but it is heard in poor quality, the screen looks bad in the light, you have to turn it up very bright, it cannot have more than 2 apps open or it crashes. Disappointed, don't buy it, no matter what you use it for, it doesn't even serve to have it just for texting, I don't wish it on my worst enemy.

    It is the worst cell phone ever made

    I've only been using it for a day and it already has errors regarding optimization, it is very slow only with social media applications, I don't want to imagine playing a game! Besides all the time the device temperature is high! It is very clear in the day. I don't recommend them, apart from that that price is ridiculously high for the specifications it has.

    A total garbage

    At first it may seem that the failures are temporary, but they are permanent failures, it takes you out of applications and games, even the undemanding ones, it may be low-end, but for the same price there are better ones like LeEco's, a total garbage

    It is useless DO NOT BUY IT

    It is a cell phone crap, it does not even serve as a basic cell phone, it leaves all the apps it is super slow it is a scam by the manufacturers, it always takes time for everything it forces closure of all the apps and do not believe that 2GB of RAM It is a lie .... I am totally sorry I bought it, Huawei Y5 the biggest scam they could have created

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.
