  • Great for the price

    For under 270$ this is a fantastic device as long as you are not bothered with the deal brakers like huge notch, no NFC, no headphone jack and no expandable storage. Personally i dont care that much but it would be nice to have those useful features. I bought it mainly for AMOLED screen and Snapdragon 710. People with small hands, like me, will apreciate the compact size, easy to use with one hand. Camera is great, daylight shots look beatiful. My biggest complain, and probably the reason i wouldnt recommend this phone that much is the stupid notch. I dont care about notches, as long as they dont brake basic functionality of the phone. And this one does. No notifications on taskbar, and they still didnt fix it with software update so i dont think they will. Awfull. And you cant even really hide it because it makes the screen shorter and looks even worse. This one thing ruins this otherwise fantastic device for me.

  • Best mid-ranger out there.

    For the price, it s a damn bang-for-buck. Saying it for real. Who gives you a Super Amoled for a price of just 280 dollars!? And besides, it feels so good on hand. Haven't had any issues about calls, messaging, daily usage etc. CPU may not seem like anything good but it's BANANAS. When it comes to camera, yeah, there are still things that have to be optimized even on MIUI 10 but these are really minor things, keep your hair on.

  • Probably the best middle-range device today.

    This phone is perfect for my needs. And it's really slim, not heavy and beautiful. It has a 3 day battery life (with GPS and WiFi open, light surfing) and 1 to 2 if you play games (depends on your use) and music. It's fast, the sound quality is acceptable and loud enough. In general, if you want s/thing from the top of the medium range mobiles, it's probably the best out there today. Oh, and up to now I dropped it 5 times. Not even a scratch (no front protective glass, only back silicon case).

    Positives
    • Amoled Screen
    • Fast Processor
    • Easy to hold in hand
    • Good battery life
    • Fast charge
    Negatives
    • Not all the bands (B20 not supported)
    • No NFC (and I don't care)

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.
