  • Very bad design choices

    Was previously using a Samsung S5, and was expecting more from the Moto G4 after reading reviews.

    The phone is not truly a 5.5 inch screen, as the bottom contains live menu keys. The viewable screen is only 5.2 inch, unless watching a movie. I don't understand why the designers didn't utilise the empty space at the foot of the phone. In effect, it takes away from the phone's look and functionality.

    You then have to accept that they have chosen to place the back key in the left hand side, but these are not customisable. What was the point of putting the menu keys on the LCD?

    The phone is top heavy, and you get very little grip from the back cover. I'm constantly trying to balance the phone and not drop it.

    The lack of standard apps is dreadful. No gallery, no pics editor, no music player. No link in camera to go straight to edit.

    Audio port on top and USB port at the bottom. Same as the S5, but at least Samsung had good reason... an actual home key.

    Good in your time

    It lasted 3 years and it was going very well until these last days that all the apps started to fail and in itself the phone was already going very badly

    Very regular...

    The design is acceptable just like your camera, although not so much in low light places, its battery is regular and its processor sometimes cannot with several applications. What I like least is that there are several games and applications that this cell phone did not run to me

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.
