  • Good budget phone

    Redmi 8A is a good budget phone i like a lot. I had only troubles with the camera but others are good for me. The phone sometimes very laggy because of the RAM.
    The power of the hardver almost the same with the Kirin 710 which are very good for this price ratio.

  • For a smartphone of its budget range it delivers a wild range of specs, generally a whole lot of value for your money

    My only major con against this mini beast is the lack of a fingerprint reader

    Large bright screen, excellent value for money, a little heavy, battery on top

    Good robust and good design phone, a decent camera, good sound on call and no wifi dropout. A beautiful screen, large and bright and a well thought-out rom. Sufficient for most games in the store. The USB type C present and a huge battery which gives it a two-day autonomy. The flash is a little weak, the night photos are not terrible. It is a little heavy and thick and slips from the hands. The screen looks fragile and prone to scratches. For the price, don't look. There is nothing better.

    The phone is wonderful

    The phone is great, just play a few games in call of duty mobile and it is great, the battery lasts too long, just for me to spend 10% it lasts about 1 hour and 12 minutes, without playing the battery it has lasted up to The next day, the camera is pretty good in my point of view, the photos are taken very well when there is good light, but when the light is not enough it is difficult to take good photos.

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.
