  • Great phone for great price

    I bought Meizu 16xs global version 3 months ago. I waited for it 2 months but it was worth of it.

    Phone is very fast, it has never stopped itself. Camera.. There are so doubts in internet : has Meizu 16xs OIS or not? I think: yes. I made some tests and pics, done by shaking hand, are very clear and bright. Pictures made in daytime are very good, made at night are also excellent. There are no noises at pictures done in night and pictures are very, very bright. Night mode in camera is not good so it's better to make photos in auto mode (it recognise the scene: night, day, text) or in pro mode. OIS doesn't work properly with video so that's one minus of this phone.

    But recommend MEIZU 16XS very much. It's a better phone that Xiaomi phones in this price. Meizu makes a very good phones but it's not well known company so not many people knows about it. I'm very glad of 16xs.

    Very good option

    Great mobile, good amoled screen, battery for a couple of days or more, very fluid. Three cameras with wide angle and pretty good photos. The worst is the video recording, without stabilization and the fingerprint reader on the screen, which fails a lot, especially with wet fingers.

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.
