  • Very good 2021 Samsung budget phone

    Good, wide IPS display for watching videos and playing games but mediocre to average readability outdoors depending on where you read it. Game tested the 90hz display on Arknights, good performance there while Genshin Impact is at least playable. Good daylight photos on both front and rear cameras, 48MP mode shots are just about OK, while night time/low light performance are (again) average for a budget camera phone. Sounds, audio and speaker performance are good. Side fingerprint recognition is quick and snappy. Mobile signals, wifi, bluetooth, GPS, USB OTG, microSD, FM radio and mirror/cast are also working satisfactorily within expectations. No notification LED but the camera LED and the screen can be used for light notification. The 5000 mAh has a very good endurance that it will last more than a day on moderate usage, unfortunately even with Samsung's adaptive fast charging, >10% charge to full will take over 2 hours!

    Pros
    • Good IPS 90hz display
    • Excellent price-performance ratio in my opinion
    • Good camera performance for it's price
    Cons
    • Samsung's adaptive fast charging sucks for this phone
    • No notification LED
    • No IP rating

    Not very much

    Bottom, it throttles terribly, there is no 5G, that is, you will only have Internet up to 37.5 Mbit, maybe a little higher, the processor itself is weak, 4GB of Opra is very, very small for a phone, the camera is so-so, but if you choose the right angle, then it’s fine.

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.
