    It is a great phone for someone who wanto or not to play games, because the battery is a monster!
    the first year the battery last more than 2 days.!!! now it last 1.5 day. !!
    it's a phone for someone who don't want to carry a powerbank with him, it has a big screen so, you can use google maps in everytime, the camera app is for rubbish, but if you put gcam you can shoot much better photos!!!
    for the 215€ i bought it last year, it was the best phone for those money!! i love it until now, and i don't want to buy other phone yet.! very satisfied!!!

  • Beautifully designed and implemented

    I bought this because I use a mobile mainly for browsing, gaming and messaging. I sometimes use it as a phone as well! It has been very reliable so far. Battery lasts 2 days easily with light use. Most people are impressed. One person asked me if I got it so I could read without glasses (I'm quite old) and that had never occurred to me! But a larger keyboard is useful for a man's fingers. Camera is good, adequate for my purposes and in good light can take fabulous portraits and landscapes. I have never had any issues with processor speed.

    This phone is beautifully manufactured and feels premium. (I've owned a lot of phones) For the money it's amazing.

  • Great hardware, shame about the OS and security bugs!

    I did a lot of research into this phone on the hardware before buying and it is my 3rd Chinese phone and 1st Xiaomi.

    It has great hardware. I love the large format, screen, cameras, responsiveness. However MIUI is such an issue with many important deal breaker bugs unaddressed for years despite many posts on the bug report forums. Bluetooth is visible all the time it is on, not just when accessing in settings. In traffic someone tried to pair with my phone! Bluetooth audio is choppy and crackles; just awful.

    MIUI is a confused and clunky OS, full of aggressive bloatware constantly trying to upload your information to their cloud and extremely irritating. A mish mash of afterthought, odd operation and serious security issues. Please Xiaomi make a stock Android ROM and stop kidding yourselves that you know better than Google on how to make an OS. I won't be buying another MIUI phone ever as things are and regret buying anything other than a phone with stock Android. Avoid.

  • Good phone overall, but with some flaw aspects

    The camera is good for the price, with 1080p 60FPS + image stabilization video recording. Also has 4k 30fps video without stabilization.
    The screen is very big, but the quality is not very great (super tiny backlit bleeding on the edges and a very noticeable yellowish screen), the vision angles are great, and the resolution is enough.
    The battery lasts for about 13 hours (or 3 full days) with the brightness set to about 40%.
    The sound is VERY BAD over the built-in speaker. The voice doesn't sound great. The audio over headphones is very clear with a very rich sound.
    The notification LED is only white, something that bothers me quite a lot.
    It has MIUI 10.0.1.0 under Android 8.1.
    The performance is great, and 4GB of RAM is more than enough for having more than 6 or 7 apps opened at the same time.
    The charger makes a very unpleasant high-pitched sound (coil whine)

  • My favorite big phone. All is good on it

    I have the Mix 1, 8x, 8x Max. The Max 3 is the easiest going of them. If you can deal with its size, this is the phone everyone should have.

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.
