  • Best cost benefit considering its construction.

    It will be 6 months that I have the device, bought for a great price in Brazil and even imported is worth it. I had no problem with him, except some MIUI issues, like: ghostly touches. It is a tough phone with good usability during the day. It does not lock, nor with heavy games in multitasking. I recommend.

  • Best for this price

    At this price there's no competition: This is by far the best smartphone I've tested. It has a very responsive system with far advanced features, that even some flagship phones don't have, a very great performance, outperforming even smartphones with the same processor, like the Mi A2, also granting a far more comfortable battery life. Miui has improved so much and just feels good and overall better and it's features are a must, feeling more responsive and clean than even stock Android does.
    On other hand, the camera is not the best, but still better than the average at this price point, even winning against some flagships like the Zenfone 5, that costs almost $200 more. The battery could last longer, but it never heats and I can't get a full day of demanding use and still have some juice left when I get home, also the fast charging is VERY fast and data transfer true cable and Bluetooth is the best, not to mention the great GPS and Cell connectivity. If you're in doubt, consider it.

  • I got this phone with MIUI China Rom. Even though it has a lot of Chinese Bloatware, I can use it properly. The camera is nice.

    I'm enjoying the quality of camera in daytime. It has nice bokeh effect, nice colors and very HD. Especially the selfie camera. What I've been noticing is the bug on the Instagram stories. The video is laggy when I'm uploading on it. I hope that it'll get fix soon by Miui or the Instagram application itself.

    On the performance, It's fast and fluid. I have no problem at all.

    Hoping for Global Rom to be uploaded on Miui website

Ki Price/Quality

  • 6.0 Battery
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.
