    Perfectly

    Super machine, but only for geeks. You need to install the firmware and shaman. Better still take the global version.

    the hardware works properly, it blocks me only, it turns off and turns on alone and the battery lasts little.

    Excellent mobile

    The truth in what little I have I liked it too, very fast, without freezing, the factory OS is comfortable (although I only used it 1 day as well), rootee for the reason that does not have the services of google so I had to put another room, although in general the device is too good at the price at which they sell it, what you pay for really is what they give you. What is a little uncomfortable for me is the screen that is 2.5D, when it comes to having it without a cover it is annoying, since when I use it I usually press part of the edges with my fingers and that prevents me from selecting what is doing, although I can not fix a case, that is arranged with a case, what I expect is the tempered glass, the team when they sent it came as a gift mica tempered glass but it is too small, does not cover the entire screen, so I had to look for another one to see if they literally cover all the glass in order to protect it, from there on out later I think

    For the foreign market to China if you want to throw 400 €, this is your mobile

    Since I bought the phone 4 months ago, it has not worked well for a continuous hour. I did what the page (geekbuying.com) where I bought it said to be able to have the googles in the mobile. The restarts are continuous, it is necessary to have several browsers to be able to visit some pages, since it can not be done in all browsers. In Chrome the locks and restarts are continuous. The Play Store does not work, restart the phone when you scroll through the menu, other times it does not download or update the applications. There are applications that do not work and also restart the phone. The phone is nice, but a real disaster when you want it to work with google. I've tried other roms (lineageos 14, mokee, miui, zte modified for google, remix) and I have not found one that works yet. I do not understand the comments in which it says that changing the rom the gapps work. They speak of ears or of different mobiles.

    An excellent cell phone with powerful hardware.

    The device itself is very good, quite powerful and with a good battery. But it's forgotten, it does not have any updates, and the UI 5 is not good enough for what the hardware it offers. It has no English language. Thanks to numerous customroms that were released, it saved its hardware. Muiupro and Miuigloberom. I've thought about selling this device, but every time I use it, your answers are quick and precise. I still believe that they will develop a perfect rom for this device, with eye care. Thanks to the competent developers of the forum xda this device returns a half and has a custom rom launched. Thank you.

    Certain versions of this phone come with a Chinese operating system that must be changed in order to use it

    It comes preinstalled a Chinese rom to which does not work the services of google play, to solve it would have to install an advanced recovery and install a different rom. Do not buy this phone unless you are sure it is working properly or you have the knowledge to do what is necessary to get it working

    Below € 280 it would be the best terminal.

    If you can buy it for about 280-260 € either by China or by Secondhand excessively careful. Around those prices is the best buy that you can make. If they already exceed € 300. Maybe you remove RAM and you buy the one plus 5T or who likes the design of the MI6 P: D. The screen quality I like the Nubia z17 more than the Xiaomi MI6.

    Very fluid

    Without European rom and not being able to use Google services it is necessary to update it outside of Nubia. 01/08/2018 Root + Mokee - It's a wonderful mobile for quality price. Everything works perfect with Google services (Gapps).

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.
