    My LG G5 H850 EU model Antutu score is 147860,i am amazed with that Benchmark score.
    I bought LG G5 H850 a few days ago.
    First I was sceptic about LG in general because of bootloop issues with previous versions like LG G3 and LG G4.
    I was Samsung fan,but with S6 and S7 with glass back cover I didn't want to get into problems with dropping the phone so I bought LG G5.
    In this few days my experience is almost exellent.Cameras both back and front are great,especially wide camera is awesome for brilliant pictures.Games are fluid with no lags.My LG G5 is on Nougat so it runs very fast and fluid,no lags at all.
    I only hate the baterry because I am charging the battery twice a day because of my work.
    Screen is great also,with Glass Protector that I bought it is safe.I bought Armor Cover so it won't brake for sure if it is dropped.
    I have to say that LG G6 is just modern than LG G5,they are almost the same,exept LG G6 is waterproof and has better screen
    Go for 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.
