  • Tough, hard-working phone. Excellent connectivity, resistant to daily and intense use and handling. Poor design, though.

    I only had to give up on this phone because the battery rapidly decayed after the first two years of use. Being a Samsung, design is almost neglected, so don't expect a nice phone. Being an "Active" version of the tremendously popular S4, it was hard to find truly adequate accessories. Wifi and GSM connectivity were top-notch. As the "Active" model, it was designed to be resistant to hostile weather and usage conditions. By the time this came out onto the market, Samsung's TouchWiz ROM was horrible both in terms of UI and user-friendliness. When the battery definitively gave up on me, I toyed a little time with several informal ROMs, which gave it a little of life on its own. It was good till it lasted.

    Positives
    • Stubbornness and toughness
    • Great wifi, GPS and GSM connectivity
    • All Samsung perks: camera, materials, speed
    Negatives
    • Battery slowly died out on me
    • TouchWiz and everything that came with that

    It could give more

    It's a good terminal, the problem is they do not find most of it. It makes good pictures of day, has good sound quality, the screen with automatic brightness battery lasts almost all day.

    It is still a very good terminal today

    It's a jeep phone. He has endured blows well and I have immersed in water both sweet and salty and still works as the first day. Performance as normal S4 (except the camera) is very fluid. The camera is 8 megapixel but makes very good pictures.

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.
