  • Great phone overall, compact and beautiful.

    It's pretty compact, useful with just one hand, the screen is curved which helps for grabbing, has a really powerfull sound, has no considerable bugs on MIUI 13 Android 12, the proximity sensor fails 1 out of 15-20 times but it's not annoying at all, the screen is brighter than previous phones I had, the battery runs out really fast, about 4-6 hours of screen time and 20 hours active in a normal day using data mobile, bluetooth and WiFi hotspot but the positive side is that you only need to plug it for 40 minutes and you'll be ready again with his 67 W charger included, on the website it says that has only one flash but actually it's dual, the selfie camera can be improved using the Google Camera, the OIS is impressive and the video is good, the fingerprint sensor is fast and the face unlock as well.

    My experience with the phone for 2 months has been really good, as expected.

  • Very good phone for everything

    its good for everyday use, and gaming too. Maybe a little too fast go dead when playing game. But the Charger is really good, so its no problem at all. Photos are very nice! Best photos i made with it nights so far! I very like it.
    Cons: I can scratch the glass at the first day, so its a disappoint for me.

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.
