  • Review after 2 years of usage

    I've preordered this phone back in October 2016, now I am using it for almost two years. I've changed many roms, currently using Pixel Experience.

  • Unreliable, the phone dead after a year

    ”Not just good for the price, far better than the price”

    I am rather surprised as I have not experienced any major problems so far.

    Defects I have found are;
    Sony Lifelog does not work on this device.
    Google Fit misses activities.
    This phone misses push notifications on specific applications.

    I originally had a trouble with the finger print sensor but when I erased the data and re-registered finger prints, it works quite OK.

    Camera image quality is not as great as I had expected from IMX378 sensor, though it is super fast in focusing and still produces more than reasonable images.

    The above is my comment I wrote a year ago with overall rating of 9.6. Merely a year later, the phone is completely dead. It does not turn on any more. Actually I have experienced the phone goes blank occasionally in the last couple of months, and replaced it.

    Positives
    • Camera focusing speed
    • Weight
    • Screen, better than Xperia Z3
    • Solid build quality
    Negatives
    • Push notifications
    • Incompatibility with Sony Lifelog

  • Very interesting phone with rare feature

    I realiy like this phone. They managed to pack aluminium body, high end specs and some cool things in it and still sells it for reasonable price. Can't say it's perfect but minor imperfections doesn't bother me much. Cooles feature is probably force sensitive screen (something like iphones), it's rare thing in android phones. When it somes to soft i suggest installing custom one, Stock MIUI Global is okay but after installing MIUI europe i've got numerous new features (as this force touch which was locked on stock) and improvements.

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.
