  • It's good for social media but not really for gaming.

    Ram and storage very good, camera really good in daytime but I'm gaming the phone has some annoying frame drop, for example I play Fortnite on 30 to 16 fps and 60 to 45 fps in call of duty mobile on medium graphics with filters.

  • Good device at all!

    Just this version of all Poco devices that I can buy for this time, it's not bad at all. Camera is decent, performance are great for online multiplayer, like Moba or battle Royale. Everything is perfect, thanks Poco.

    Good phone for your budget

    Pros: Good daytime shooting, good design, normal body materials for the price, runs games well, holds a charge well Cons: Poor night shooting, the screen dims when it gets hot.

    Enough for constant use without much demand

    In 2024 it has what I need. It runs most of the games that interest me, the space seems sufficient for the use I need with different apps and it has never been saturated. Too bad for the Xiaomi apps, ADB modification was required to remove a lot of garbage and native apps with ads but it was done without a problem. The NFC seems to me to be in a good location for the team. My only complaint would be that the fingerprint reader on the power button can be uncomfortable depending on the situation. I consider not needing to update the equipment for at least a couple more years.

    Pros
    • Accesible price
    • Price quality for low range
    • Convenient NFC
    • Resentful screen
    Cons
    • Xiaomi apps with ads
    • It is not easy to open to give you self-management
    • In 2024 there are already apps that do not consider you

    A phone for undemanding games or everyday routine

    I took 6/128, if I briefly describe it like this: 1. The screen is dim and yellowish at first (yellowness can be changed), with sufficient heating it dims the brightness (you can’t turn it off yourself or turn it off, you need to cool it) 2. you won’t be able to play games like pubg stable 60 frames without Gfx tool and so on. 3. The camera is quite good during the day, I like it as an extraordinary photographer, the only negative is noise in poor lighting. 4. fast charging for about an hour and a good battery that lasts me personally 7/8 hours of use in undemanding games/applications 5. Terrible cutout for the camera, what cactus invented it, there are always fingerprints or dirt there, by the way the shell is nice , like leather at minimum wages)

    Pros
    • Autonomy
    • Good daytime photography
    • Affordable price
    Cons
    • Horrible night shooting
    • Screen dims when heated
    • The camera cutout is always dirty/dusty
    • Lots of unnecessary applications on first launch

    It is good

    The device is very good but Two problems The battery takes 1h and 45 minutes to charge, Yes, I know I may be exaggerating on the R$850 cell phone... but there are devices with much faster charging that are cheaper like the Redmi Note 12 4G from (xiaomi too) that charges 1h 10 Second problem The device gets very hot, just logging into Roblox and playing for just 25 minutes is enough to fry an egg The device doesn't turn off because it's too hot but... And it also interferes a little with the gameplay If you keep playing (games like Roblox free free fire Asphalt 9 etc.) for more than 3 hours maybe it might start to freeze a little But it's almost nothing, there's no way to tell

    Very good cell phone, beautiful and with good performance

    The back has a leather texture and has a thick piano black stripe on top. The screen is LCD but it's not bad, on the contrary it's very good. The screen brightness isn't bad either. The processor is good, it's a helium G99, and with the Hyper OS update the device is very well optimized!0

    Price quality

    A fairly inexpensive phone with several good and decent features. It can't matter what you want it for, it works a little bit of everything for a low price. The battery is quite good and long-lasting, charging is fast despite being 18 watts. The cameras are decent for the price and quite compliant. The screen is fluid and with vivid colors. and beautiful The power and software are things that stand out the most in this phone since the processor performs quite well as social networks and video games, it does not get very hot and keeps the fps stable or fluid. I recommend not updating it unless it is hyper os since the previous ones are not well optimized

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.
