  • Absolutely worth it!

    It looks pretty, feels really premium. The display is huge, sharp, bezels are very thin and the notch implementation is perfect, the brightness good for day and night too. Speaker is great, bass sounds pretty well. Call quality is good. The GPS locks position in second and the signal is stable. WIFI reception is great. Playing Real Racing 3, PUBG, Asphalt 8 etc., I can say this phone is very fast, no lag, no FPS drop, even doesn't heat up. Multitasking is flawless. Fingerprint sensor never fails. Battery time is amazing - 8-9 hours of screen time - playing games, watching youtube and browsing. The quality of the camera is OK in daylight. In darker environment needs to shoot more and then choose a best one. 4K, slo-mo work well. For this price this is OK! The LED shows only the charging. With root, you can utilize for notifications. (Lenovo did not advertise with LED!) No OTA update outside of China, but unofficial updates available on the XDA forums (Pie).

    disappointing

    unfortunately I am very disappointed by Lenovo, very powerful hardware but the software has so many faults and at the moment there are no patches or fixes that the lenovo has released. defect n1: you can not change screensaver and wallpaper; defect n2: you can not change the screen lock time, basically if you go on settings and suspension time, you are brought back to the settings again; defect n3: the gps when it should automatically look for positions with the apps of the play store often remains in "search" mode and never detects the exact position; defect n4: the notification LED lights up only for the battery in charge, it never lights up for the apps notifications, with any app you will never see the LED turn on;

    Spectacular quality-price; no words

    The only downside is that I'm afraid I will not have the option to update ... update via OTA I think it will not be viable ...

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.
