    A good low range

    While Windows Phone is a failure recognized by Microsoft itself, the fact that this phone comes standard with this operating system does as many favors as problems, on the one hand WP being a light OS makes with the limited specifications of the terminal to run everything in a fluid way, the bad part is that there are not as many apps as in the other systems of the competition, anyway I loved it and I still like very much the interface that presents the user.

    for working with texts and presentations, probably the best phone, and for games not the best. The camera is not the best, night photos are not suitable

    Messenger, browser and only. OS is not stable, crashes and bugs (weekly updates are released, despite the fact that more than a year has passed)

    Generally slow for all and few applications, but useful for mobile business

    It takes even open WhatsApp ... in fact when I recently looked at kimovil having a snapdragon processor I missed a lot, because it's painfully slow, as mobile company for management and organnización is true that is great, especially if you have Windows 10 on the computer because you can link everything (notifications, calendar, alarms) and what you do with the phone you can do with the computer, I got it for 9 Euros initial plus 2 years of stay payment, but I regret choosing this and ... I miss none other Android ...

    • as mobile company is doing well

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.
