  • Doesn't worth the experience!

    It's a non commercial Android. It came with Cyanogen OS, wich doesn't have support anymore, so that I couldn't use it, and because of that I had to install other version of Custom ROM, witch had me a LOT OF PROBLEMS and HEADACHES! Recently, the screen is not working properly as well, and the worst thing that made me change of device is that I bought a SIM CARD from SMARTY (powered by Three, one of the very good and famous UK's carrier), but IT SIMPLY don't recognize! And the battery is not more holding charge as before. When it reaches 10%, lasts 20 min and it gets to 0%. Less than 2 years of use! I do not recommend. It should last at least 3 to 4 years...

    Positives
    • Metalic body
    • Good screen glass lasting
    Negatives
    • Don't last much
    • Don't recognizes all carriers
    • Battery it's 4000mha, but it's like a 3000mha
    • Comes with Cyanogen, witch is not more supported

  • The phone was fast and had a good solid battery

    It worked until the Samsung nandflash memory died and the OS became unstable and now its dead.
    I had the phone for more than 2 years.

    A modding beast

    I have kept this phone as a secondary phone now, I have repaired it and brought it back to life many times and it has never yielded, the performances are almost on a par with the phones of 2019, fitting them over the right roms. Still still a great smartphone

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.
