    I was afraid of a weak battery, but unnecessary. It's enough for one day.
    Camera is very good with daytime photos. With low light photos are medium quality.

    Pros
    • Compact size despite the 6.15 inch screen
    • Good battery life
    • Daytime photos
    • M-touch
    Cons
    • Night photos

  • Relatively small but powerful midranger

    Bought this to replace my Cubot x18 plus which has 4000mah. Surprisingly the 3200mAh perform almost similar to the bigger battery but very old chipset in x18 plus. Shorter, slimmer, lighter easier to hold. Notch not really bothering me. Excellent camera in good light, good enough selfie, acceptable low light performance. Loud speaker is loud enough, excellent sound through earphone and Bluetooth headset. 4g connection is good, but not excellent, wifi connection is excellent so far.
    Charging less than 2 hours. Really like the m-back button for navigation.

    Don't like; screen dimming excessively in low light, difficult to see under bright sun light under auto screen.
    No 4g/3g sign on main screen, has to drag down the notification bar all the way down to see whether I am in 4g/3g mode.

    excellent mobile

    excellent mobile for everyday tasks, runs normal in applications and games. camera should have been better, very artificial in the colors of the photos. the camera for selfies does not work very well in video calls, the image looks very artificial. For the rest everything is fine.

    The hardware is good for the price but the operating system is not very good as it never receives updates and is not very good for games.

    I don't like meizu, it sucks like flyme can't root it sucks.

    It should have a battery with a capacity of at least 3800 mh.

    Device with a beautiful designer appearance .. in general I liked the device except that its rear camera could deliver a little more. And your battery a little better ... I'm really enjoying

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.
