  • Pretty good overall for the price, minor issues though

    I've had some wierd issues with low pressure GPS that no matter how much I try to calibrate, the pressure won't go up from low. However I haven't found anyone else who shares this issue so I might be an outlier. On top of that if you don't restart it in a long period of time it gets a little bit sluggish. And for me at least, it is a tad too big and heavy but you get used to it.

    But these were the only issues after 2 months + of somewhat heavy usage ( I don't play heavy games on my phone). Performance, camera, display and design are very nice for the price.

  • Great budget phone with powerful processor

    When considering about it's price it gives more than the price. Sounds are almost good. When consider about some types of video recording it just meet the average. Almost a great powerful snapdragon 720 chip set, camera display so nothing to worry about what i have purchased.

  • Everything working good on a nice design.

    You can using phone more than one day by regular works or +half a day gamming by medium graphic also it's really big but not heavy actually,nice design. but it cause not good for all just gamers or students. Also on different religions u see different preinstalled apps removable nice thing. Temperature always cool without any laggs on any process very nice. And if you bought this phone on miui 11,android 10 u see afew bugs... but i recommend to update to fix them all.

  • Good phone for everyday use.

    Good design with Gorilla glass on front back and the camera module is impressive. The look and feel is flagship level.

    The Snapdragon 720G is more than enough for everyday use. Calls, Texts, Social media, Photo and Video capture with few editing, Light gaming, Even High end games at medium settings- everything runs smoothly with great RAM management. 5000mAH is perfect for a day of use.

    Camera is good for daylight shots and even video with 4K capture is decent. EIS is amazing. Ultrawide shots suffers from poor detailing. Macro sensor is good.

    Where the camera suffers, is with night time photos and videos. Video turns out to be too dark and even with dedicated night mode, images after sunset is pathetic. GCam mod solves the issue with Nightsight images comparable with Oneplus quality.
    Xiaomi pushed 3 OTA updates from March till May and fixed these previous problems
    1) screen burns around camera notch
    2) frequent camera errors
    3) unexpected restarts

    Cons
    • Night time photos and videos

  • Great phone for any usage type

    Nothing to say, everything works well! Battery lasts 2-3 days, with demanding usage. SW is smooth, no serious bugs or so. Side fingerprint sensor is the best feature ever!

    I had 4GB and 6GB version. Basicly there is no performance difference between them!

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.
