  • Great phone, good battery, camera, superb screen at a good price.

    The form factor is average, the material too. The display is Super Amoled, which is the best in the market. Good in direct sunlight, colors are really vivid. The battery lasts for more, than a day. The price is 300 euro after 5 month of the original release, which is great. You can get 100 Gb of cloud space on One Drive. Fast enough for demanding games, at medium level. Dedicated Bixby button. / Gb RAM, 128 Gb of storage, more than enough. Fingerprint scanner is fast and nearly error free. GPS is good.
    Camera is average, despite of the 4 lens. Sound good, Dolby Atmos. So it's a good allrounder at an affordable price, good midrange phone.

  • Extremly bad bettery !!!

    New phone, not even half of apps installed and can't last a day. Charged full this morning at 07:00, now it's 11:00 and I'm already down to 70% with little usage. My prediction is that in less then 6 months, when battery capacity falls even more, it will not be usable more then 12-13 hours.

    And this fast charger they say I have - is not. I had Vernee Apollo (lite version) that could charge from 0%-100% in 35 minutes. I hoped that Samsung had at least that preformance. And BTW, the charger model is the same I had for my Galaxy S6 - 4 years ago!!!

    The phone is just several days in use, already started having problems with unlocking and freezing.

    Fast, beautiful and good battery

    The cameras go well as long as there is light, at night they are not very good, never use the wide angle at night only when there is very good lighting. As for power I have no complaint is always fluid and perfect and the battery lasts the whole day and even I have plenty.

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.
