    An off-road player

    If you are reading this in 2020 or later (I really do not know what you are doing here) it is almost certain that you already have some current equipment and are looking for what a Microsoft relic can offer you, although it is an old and discontinued equipment, having it will give you It can save you from an afternoon without music or even as a lure in an assault (I hope it never happens to you). The equipment at that time (2015) cost me 20 thousand Chilean pesos, and for what it offered (Internet browsing, manual camera controls, social networks, Office applications) with an exceptional performance for its low-end, I was turning to Android phones (of that time) double or triple their value, both in design and performance, Windows Phone 8 with a minimalist design and a dark mode fully integrated to the applications that was very fluid, although the OS lacked many Popular apps used to have some third party equivalent.

    Positives
    • Drop resistant
    • SO very fluid and pretty
    • Radio and music player
    • Rear camera with manual mode
    Negatives
    • Few applications OS
    • No front camera

    Too basic

    It is a high quality mobile, like all Nokia, but with too many cuts. Its 512MB of RAM make multitasking very slow, having to constantly load applications. Web browsing is a torture in heavy pages. It has the advantage of bringing many pre-installed office applications, but there are many that you do not use and cannot be uninstalled. The camera goes very well in good light conditions, with well defined photos and real colors, but when the light falls the photos have a lot of noise. The screen is one of its worst points, with insufficient lighting outdoors, very washed colors and no viewing angles. Either you face it or it doesn't look. Its size of 4 "is too small for multimedia viewing, especially considering that the touch buttons are on the screen. Of course, it is convenient to use with just one hand. The battery is consistent with the screen size of the mobile. Lasts a day with a basic use

    Complies.

    Mobile meets and story performance and daily use all well but moderately demanding games does not move or does with many difficulties, demanding does not move, the camera has no focus, flash, front camera and is very bad if no good conditions luz.A all the above have to add that you can find for 60 € or less so that compensates a bit.

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.
