  • 2019 bang for the buck budget phone

    Got it for about 112USD in a local ecommerce platform flash sale back in December 12, 2019. The performance of the processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal are good enough for almost all basic mobile tasks except graphic heavy mobile games. Dual sim mobile signals, dedicated microSD, wifi, bluetooth, GPS, IR, front/rear cameras, microphone, and speakers are all working OK. The wireless FM does work without headphones unlike the Redmi Note 8 which still asks for a headphone to be plugged in the 3.5mm jack. The big battery takes a while to drain so it will last a full day of moderate usage like a champ!

    Pros
    • Mostly good internal specs
    • Big battery with fast charging support
    • Type C usb
    Cons
    • No NFC
    • Splash resistant but no IP rating
    • No LED notification
    • 8.1
    • Screen7.5
    • Performance7.0
    • Camera6.7
    • Connectivity7.3
    • Battery9.0
  • One of the best daily drivers!

    Over 8h of screen on time!

    Pros
    • IPS HD+ (no burn in, power saving screen)
    • 5000 mAh battery
    Cons
    • Lack of qc3 (18w) charger in the box
    • Lack of EIS
    • Lack of 60fps video recording

    Good

    A good ultra-budgetary about Oooh, how I miss the water touch on realne 6 .... Sometimes very strong heating (downloading large applications, games (better not try to download impact 3d (overheating above 80 ° C (and if you put ROOT and somehow turn off protection in case of overheating, then I think it will be above 90 ° C)), well, or if you need to brew tea, then yes), after a while the fingerprint scanner "died" (it ceases to adequately recognize the fingerprint (the same trouble was in huawei p smart 2018)) out of the box Microsoft SwiftKey (as for me it's better than gboard), as for me it's a great miui, according to the idea, an update should have come to miui 12, but an update came to 10 android within miui 11, although there is a type of 18w charging, 10w included ( 5 volts, 2 amperes), after a while the screen began to fade, although there is an ips matrix .... How?

    Pros
    • 5000mAh battery
    • Design
    • Price
    Cons
    • Screen fades
    • Blk power supply included 10w
    • Miui (I don't like miui from the word at all)
    • Heating the core in serious tasks

    Excellent phone

    For a phone that costs $ 130 and comes with a 4/64 GB configuration, it is very good for its price, the only thing that I would like to have improved it would be the processor that is inferior compared to the Redmi 7 of the other excellent phone

    Pros
    • Battery
    • Sound
    • Day camera
    • Lining in the box
    • 18W load
    • Infrared port
    Cons
    • Night camera
    • Snapdragon 439 although it goes well

    Good terminal for its price

    I only had some problems due to its customization layer and there were periods when it had to be restarted ... but in the other sections it is very fluid so I would give it 9/10

    Pros
    • It is fluid
    • I do not know how to work or lag
    • Your battery
    • Your protection corning gorilla glas 5
    • Large 64gb storage capacity and 4 RAM
    • It has an infrared port

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.
