  • This device lives only with software

    I'm using this device with RROS v5.8.5(Android 7.1.2). This device good on software. But chipset is very old. Otg not supported automatically. Device can't handle new games. Battery is very bad. I can use this device with full charge only 90-120 minutes. If I don't plug in my device in the night, when I wake up in the morning, the device is discharged. I can take portrait photos with Google Camera. But there is a stain on my camera. Device sound good because I'm using Dolby Atmos. I think this device only usable for second device. So I would like to buy a new device.

  • Good hardware, but only worth it if you install Cyanogen Mod

    A newer version of the classic Galaxy S3. Hardware was good for the price in 2014 but not anymore. Phone works well but comes with Kit Kat and was never updated, not even once. If you want a cheap phone to install a custom OS like Cyanogen Mod than this is a good option.

    Positives
    • Supports Cyanogen Mod
    • Good battery life
    • Resistant hardware
    Negatives
    • Software never updated
    • Not so good camera

  • A nice phone, but...

    In order to replace my Galaxy S, I got myself this phone. It's a nice phone to see, and to work with, even in 2016. I like the design and I like that the phone is pretty small and lightweight, but the battery could have been better. You can get trough the day with light usage, but when you make a few calls, listen to music via bluetooth, and play some games the battery is empty before the afternoon. The build quality is very good, I dropped the phone a few times but it seems no one cares because still the phone is working and no scratches at all. The camera is a nice one, you can shoot decent pictures and filming is in [email protected] The sound quality is pretty good, and the button placement is excellent. It is difficult to root the phone because I have a uncommon build number.

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.
