  • LG, your software is awful

    I finally received pie... 428 days after pie was released on all the other phones... And LG hasn't even managed to make the phone smooth with the time they take to release updates. Aside from that, everything else is pretty slightly above average about the phone.

  • What a fantastic phone

    I bought this phone used like new for 250€ and i think is impossible find something better at that price. Thin, not heavy and the 6'' size it's perfect for me. With the phone in the trousers i can run

  • Worthless piece of junk

    LG has proven again that don't care at all about their costumers, a good hardware but poorly put together and with the crappiest software you can find, and if you think that you can get rid of the bloatware and the official bloated rom, you're VERY mistaken, LG makes all they can to make your life harder, the bootloader is blocked, there's no way of repairing a bootloop nor reinstalling the original software with their crappy post-service. I simply had to throw mine in the garbage after it got stuck on boot. A good camera? Yes, one of the best. A good performance chipset? Yes, but again it stutters and is slowed down by LG's crappy software, the battery is not good, you can't root it, there are dozens of versions of the same phone which makes harder and harder to get around the roms issue, and trust me, they will come. I have owned 6 different LG models by now, this was my last try with this shitty company. If want a good smartphone, go look somewhere else.

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.
