  • Today it is still a good mobile for its current price.

    The design is beautiful, it was very popular in 2018, having pointed edges makes it feel good in hand, trying to copy the feeling of a note.
    The mobile screen has good colors, very good angles, it has 60Hz but it doesn't need more, I think.
    The camera with good daytime results, with good balance, good colors and good definition, at night the results are good, for its current price they are quite good, I like the video, in FHD it has normal stabilization, it is not good but it is not bad , although the one I have is to do you a favor.
    The power of the mobile gives good results, the processor is already well optimized for medium demand games, so here the results are very good.
    Connectivity is standard.
    The battery gives for the whole day, it has a very good battery to be from 2018, so no complaints.
    In conclusion, for $ 125 it is a very good option.

  • This phone looks and feels luxurious

    I've owned a lot of Xiaomi phones over the past 3 years, but this remains my favorite. This feel of this phone is as good as it gets. The phone still has a fast and reliable capacitive fingerprint sensor before the under-display trend began. It's comfortable to use because it's not too big. Out of all of my Xiaomi phones, this one has had the best custom ROM support. I find that surprising because this was a China only release. My only regret is that I didn't save for the 128GB version when I bought it. I'll probably hang on to this one forever.

    Pros
    • Luxurious build quality
    • Excellent screen
    • Fast capacitive fingerprint sensor
    • Front camera flash
    • Good performance
    Cons
    • Spotty USA LTE coverage
    • Pre-installed applications
    • Aggressive power management

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.
