  • For multimedia, social chatting, 24/7. Useable photos and videos.

    Phone for multimedia streamers and social chatting users. Fb, Viber, Whatsup (100%). Instagram makes useable photos and videos, not for some dedicated enthusiasts or youtube bloggers, but to share among friends, useable. Very good screen for that price range, no problem in the sunlight. Casual gaming phone, yes. Can do all your needs in real-time performance.
    For that price range is hard 9. But compared to others phones, the huge 7.

  • Cheapest new phone i got

    Overall great phone with except wireless charging all necessary functionality that has flagship s 10e Samsung.
    My concern was the battery and it's solved 99%
    Proc is enough for everyday but it doesn't hold in memory more than one app. As soon as you switch to something else you lost it.
    Had some bug here and there from the very beginning but minor. Ringtone is a lame Xiaomi and can't be changed as example.

  • AMOLED on budget for 2022

    AMOLED screen is good, AOD is still at 10 seconds timeout but could be enabled to actually stay on under Developer Options. 90hz provides smooth transitions and animations but may drain battery more quickly. Confirmed Widevine Security Level is 1.

    Camera and video performance are also satisfactory, good shots on daylight or well lighted subject or scenes, night or low light shots is more miss than hits so illuminate subjects/scenes well first.

    Fingerprint unlock is quick and snappy. Dual speakers are great IMHO. Mobile signal and data, WIFI, BT, GPS, FM Radio, USB OTG, microSD, IR and cast/mirror works well as expected.

    The 5000mAh battery will get you at least through the day of moderate usage but will be less if you crank up to 90hz display. Advertised 60 minutes full charge using the supplied 33W charger is true as average charging time I got was an hour and some extra several minutes from 1-5% to full charge while powered off, once I even timed it to just 59 minutes!

    Pros
    • AMOLED 90hz display
    • 5000mAh battery, 33w fast charging
    • Dual speakers
    • Widevine Security Level 1
    Cons
    • Mediocre lowlight/night camera performance
    • Not 5G yet
    • No NFC on my unit version

  • A great phone for the money

    Display:
    The phone has a good and bright AMOLED display. 90hz works very smooth.

    Battery:
    The battery life is great. I easily get more than a day of battery backup. The charging speed is pretty fast. It takes a little more than an hour to fully charge.

    Performance:
    My experience has been good. I haven't experienced any lags. I have played games (CODM, PUBGM) and then ran smoothly.

    Cameras:
    The stock camera app is decent. It takes good photos in daylight and not so great photos at night and the video recording quality is average. However GCams (I use MGC gcam) are game changers. With Gcams even in low light and indoor conditions I get great shots even on the Ultra-wide camera. And it's possible to record 60 fps videos with Gcam.

    If you are taking photos, Gcam is must. This one works best for me.

    Sound:
    The sound quality is really good. The dual stereo speakers are loud and crisp.

    In-hand feel:
    The phone is slim and lightweight. It's also not too big like most of the phones today. So holding it in hand feels comfortable.

    Software:
    My software experience in Miui was surprisingly good. I didn't face any bugs. However I switched to an AOSP based Custom rom for better experience, frequent software updates and security patches.

    I would recommend this phone to anyone in this price range.

  • A great buy

    After more than two weeks, for people without heavy gaming, there should be no problems.
    Great display with stereo speakers can make the phone multimedia experience exceptional.
    Handles daily tasks smoothly. Camera quality isnt the best, Google camera is essential and can fix all photography issues.
    Battery is very reliable.

Ki Price/Quality
Score
  • 7.1 Design & Materials
  • 6.4 Performance & Hardware
  • 6.5 Camera
  • 7.4 Connectivity
  • 8.1 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.
