    I like the design, back door with glass (gorrilaz glass 5), but didnt like with the lens design, too much higher.
    Average battery life, good camera in much light, but poor in low light.
    If you want good design with cheap price, buy it. But....... Becarefull with screen retention, many user have it.

    Looks like it's still a solid phone in 2020. Good for a user that wants excessive tasks to be done in no time. It's quick and responsive, has a loud speaker and the battery usually lasts after a day of usage. Although I got disappointed from the DAC after coming from a 10V Mi A1 which was at the same price-range 2 years ago. Maybe it's just that my headphones are made for amps to be loud enough and have bass. As for the quad camera it looks good but it needs modded gcam which sometimes requires root. Last but not least miui has a wonderful UI but it's bloated with ads, i had to flash xiaomi.eu to fix that.

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.
