  • battery issue is worst

    Not impressed ..seriously these features are of no worth if you are giving this small battery is better to go for DOOGEE X10 ..ITS battery is impressive because in today's world 2050mah battery is a bad option ... plus the build quality of DOOGEE X10 is good according to price !!!

  • A downgraded cameraphone still looks and feels great

    The latest "down-to-earth" revision of the model - Y813 - which is currently offered for sale by many sellers apparently has some improvements and one significant disappointing downgrade - a "real" 5 MP camera module instead of the IMX149.

    The phone looks and feels like a more expensive device (except the back panel). The HD screen is colourful and gorgeous to look at.

    Programs run well but the manufacturer placed some limitations on graphical demanding games - most of them have higher graphics options disabled for some reason, unlike in other phones running the same hardware.

    Despite that, I did not notice any WiFi issues reported by the owners of the phone of the earlier revisions.

    Don't get fooled by gleaming reviews and description - this is no longer a "camera-centrered" device. The Iphone camera is long gone, replaced with an ages-old Ominvision sensor with mere 5 MP, albeit the phone boasts 13 MP photos. The output is only mediocre, but not the worst.

    • extremely nice build quality with a metal frame
    • stable WiFi connection, speed and good reception
    • bright and colourful HD screen with Miravision
    • speaker with a nicely sounding upper spectrum
    • the sweet spot between price and performance
    • highly inferior 5 MP OV5693 camera sensor in the Y813 revision
    • disappointing battery life
    • speaker lacking loudness
    • not a precise digitizer, witho only 2 point touch
    • a bit sluggish interface

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.
