  • HUGE POWERFUL Battery, nice front and rear cameras, fast processor for daily essentials. Albeit the size isn't for everyone.

    My previous and first rugged device is the BV9500 Pro which lasts me for 2 year and a half through tons of abuse. This Power Armor 13 is one hell of a upgrade in every aspects (except the size, yeah even for me it is a bit too big but all the other neat features outmatches the size & weight aspect).

    The battery is the absolute winning aspect on this device. I don't do gaming / streaming / any other "highly demanding" activities so I can't comment on how this device will hold in playing highly demanding mobile games or such. However, for daily essentials it runs flawlessly smooth (Whatsapp, Online Marketplace, Uber, G-Maps, FB, Insta)(and yes I installed quite a lot of other similar in function apps) so this is another plus.

    Battery and memory is maintained with care, so far only 1 drop from about 1.5 meter and there's only very subtle minor scratch on the upper frame. Screen, cameras, are 100% fine and no rattling sound or performance issues.

    Camera is definitely not like on the "Pretty - High End Phones" but for a rugged brick (literally) of a field phone the photo & video quality is neat.

    Pros
    • Battery life. Seriously it held up for 2-3+ days single charge
    • Water - weatherproofness. Daily to outdoorsies.
    • Camera. The 4K video and photo is nice.
    Cons
    • The SIZE.
    • Weight.

  • this 977 character review limit SUCKS

    note, my device has been rooted with Magisk
    BATTERY
    the battery life of this phone is very good, even using QI sharing to charge my galaxy watch/buds, i got 42h out of it, even after using a cable to charge my wife's S10 5G from 0% to 100% overnight

    when your battery is drained, you have a 15s shuts down timer

    DURABILITY
    there is a metal ring around the screen 2mm above the display, this reduces the chance of a face down drop breaking the screen
    there are bumpers on each corner, this is like a shock absorber to stop structural warping when dropped
    much of the internal space structural reinforcement

    CAMERA
    the camera sucks, at night, no OIS, video is locked to 30FPS

    PERFORMANCE
    game performance is similar to a galaxy S9

    ARK (medium preset, full resolution) 20-30FPS
    Xplane 11 (medium graphics, AA off) 20-40FPS

    SOFTWARE
    uses google apps for almost everything
    YouTube is not deletable (i use YT Vanced, it blocks ads/skips sponsors)
    this device has commie spyware

    Pros
    • excellent battery life (wireless power sharing is actually useful now)
    • great durability, is waterproof
    • low battery shutdown timer (15 seconds to plug in)
    • good performance for a big battery phone
    • amazing selection of accessories (NV/endo cam.etc)
    • built in call recorder and screen recorder
    Cons
    • google integration (why not just use stock android system apps)
    • undeletable apps (youtube vanced is better)
    • hidden china spyware (root needed to find/remove)
    • cam sucks in low light, no OIS, no 60FPS recording
    • a bit heavy (but that is to be expected)
    • hybrid sim tray (cant use dual sim AND SD card)

    seems to be good but less efficient than one can believe

    at first glance it can be a little scary given its size and weight but with large pockets and large hands it does not pose any problems here is my return after almost 6 months advantages: the battery holds well, 2 days of intensive use and 3 or even 4 days using it not very resistant to shocks waterproof and can really take underwater photos (tested in shallow depths) fairly powerful volume rather powerful flash and lighting macro photography is good inconveniences and disappointment: weight and dimensions not necessarily suitable for everyone photo and video quality rather mediocre compared to what we hope, which is sold by the manufacturer, to take good photos you have to put yourself in pro mode the night mode does not bring much plus I find that the wifi and Bluetooth are not efficient display speed not very convincing and I have bugs such as photos are taken but do not register, and files that disappear for my I am rather disappointed and the note follows before I had a samsung s6 which, even if it was less solid, was much more efficient

    It has everything but good coverage

    The phone is very recent and durable despite the fact that after 3 months I already had to change the speaker, the worst problem is that its coverage is very poor (at least in my equipment) I had Motorolas before (10 years different models) and everything had signal in places that now the Armon 13 does not have it and now I have them both tested (Armor and Motorola). And armor takes it in everything but coverage. It's a shame because this phone could last for weeks if you were isolated in a remote place and in trouble, but you could not make a phone call because the coverage in my experience is poor

    Spectacular in every way

    Excellent, it has everything it should have, it fell off my motorcycle 100 kilometers away, it bounced several times on the asphalt and it didn't even scratch, it's powerful, a lot of memory, excellent processor, great photos and videos, very fast to navigate, in Argentina you have to change the access point from Claro to navigate and what I like the most is the battery since it lasts several days without charging

    Pros
    • Memory, battery, cameras, etc.
    Cons
    • I don't find anything wrong with it, I just remind you that it weighs 500 grams

    It is worth its weight: a lot. Highly recommended. Very good overall features and a powerful battery at a reasonable price.

    Pros
    • Battery life. General features.
    Cons
    • The weight.

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.
