    It is a good device in this time, the bad thing is the 4000 mhp battery is not up to date and I liked the night photos a lot.

    good mid-range phone

    Here it is described that the Note 8 2021 has scuon MIUI 13 and Android 12 installed, maybe that's the case now, mine still came with Android 11 and I haven't been offered an update since December 2021, but I hope that the update will be available in Germany on MIUI 13 for my phone is still coming,

    Pros
    • integrated security software

    Mid-range, ideal for non-demanding users

    I've had it for 3 months now, and you could say that it's going well for me, so far I've had few problems regarding the MIUI operating system, you'll know what I mean, its updates that increasingly incorporate bugs or failures that make the phone remains static, or even sometimes does not respond, apart from the notifications of some applications that do not usually arrive properly, and it is necessary to restart the mobile, so that it works, but there have been relatively few problems with this smartphone Well, I speak as a non-demanding user, since for the features it has, I am satisfied. I recommend this cell phone? Well, if you are a user who is looking for something cheap and does not demand the best of the best, this cell phone suits you.

    Pros
    • Quite ample internal memory
    • Fluency in applications
    • Good sound on speaker
    Cons
    • System bugs sometimes
    • Cameras of acceptable quality
    • low amount of battery

    Great value for money with shortcomings

    The phone is of very good quality for its price, however it leaves a lot to be desired in night photography, demanding games and performance.

    Pros
    • daytime camera
    • Sound quality and speaker power
    • 6.5-inch screen
    • Great screen resolution
    Cons
    • Poor quality IPS screen although with resolution
    • Low brightness on screen in full light
    • Poor performance for its price

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.
