- Good, but has problems
The phone is really fast, no lag anywhere, photos are nice, the screen is good. But there is a long list of cons.
Fingerprint sensor: it does not always react well to my finger but my friend was able to unlock my phone with his finger! Talk about security...
System optimization: the processor fails to enter sleeping mode, I see it always running in background (in Battery details) although no app is shown to be draining battery, running time with screen on is roughly 1/2 of time with screen off, you can't even leave it unconnected to charger for the night in airplane mode! So while it has impressive running time under full load, it fails miserably at lasting more than half a day. While the system has 6Gb of RAM, I have rarely seen it used at least to 70%. Also, there is some system process that does regular "optimization" by filling all RAM to force background apps to close. It freezes system for that duration (~0.5s).
Spare parts: Can't find a replacement screen anywhere!Positives
- Powerful CPU
- Lots of RAM and Storage
- System optimization
- No spare parts
- No support
- Good phone for this price, but it has some bugs
I was looking for good performance phone with average price. This phone looks nice and it has excellent hardware characteristics, but it does not fit well in hand. I have a problem when I am outside and walk, there was several situations I could drop it down. The biggest Vernee's fail with this model is camera. The camera has bug during auto-focus. It do it so early, so the picture remains blurred. Auto-focus on close-up objects are very good, but you cannot make good quality picture of your environment. Since I bought the phone, there were 2 OTA updates. I had a hope this problem will be solved through OTA updates, but it was not. Also, Vernee's customer support is terrible. You cannot get help in an easy way. The phone comes without Gallery app. I had to install one from play store, but every app has ads. Fignerprint reader (very precious) is at the side of the phone. I often touch it accidentally. All in all I am no satisfied with this phone as I hoped I will be.Positives
- clear screen
- fast cpu
- enough RAM
- great number of different settings
- back camera autofocus
- fingerprint reader position
- feeling in hand
- poor customer support
- AutoI FALLED TENS OF TIMES WITHOUT A SCRATCH -
I spent the purchase a year ago: € 164 was widely rewarded. Dropped "tens" of times without a scratch. Metal frame and "slim" design, nice to see. With 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal memory, Android 7 (nougart) without problems is a purchase more than good. I'm thinking of buying a new one for only 100Euro. Unfortunately, before the Mars pro I had bought a Mars (210euro) that had suffered (after three months) a problem. Repaired under warranty after 4 months, shipped to China for 30 euros, returned "repaired" after two months the same problem was pressing. Despite the negative experience I bought the MARS PRO that I use with great satisfaction. I'm neither a fan of photos nor a fan of music, but for daily use I'm fine. I'm a retired computer consultant.Positives
- More than good
- I'm thinking of the M8

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:
- Design and screen
- Hardware and performance
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.
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.
