  • Cheap phone with Android 8.1, good camera

    I've been choosing by NFC, screen size below 5.5 and good camera.
    I can say this phone is OK. It's slightly scratch proof, good assembly, almost clean operation system. I bought it after xiaomi and I still missing miui bells and whistles sometimes.

    After 3months of usafe I noticed it accidentally restarting and become unresponsive for a while. That was actually the reason I bought new phone, not expected that from fresh one.

    As positives I can name good assembly, nice photos, camera manual settings like wb and focus, and some scratch resistance: after 3 months without case it has only few scratches.

    Good mobile for daily use.

    I have been with the mobile since its launch there by mid-2017 and since I have it it only has very slight scratches on the screen (and that I am not especially careful, so I would consider it a resistant mobile for day to day. The screen is good, has a good resolution and is quite bright, so you will never have problems in that sense. The camera is good, without more. You'll get good results in almost any situation (as long as the light accompanies). its manual mode will be useful if you ever want to experiment, and the camera of selfies also complies.The flashes, both exterior and interior, are powerful and have a slightly orange tone, which you may not like. In terms of power, the processor it carries is more than enough for everyday use, with it you can do everything and it is capable of moving any current game. Sometimes it gives me jerks or gets caught, but I guess It's something that happens.

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.
