  • The phone is ok if you dont have really high demands but still want to feel some premium..ish aspects.

    I didn't bought the phone so it was, i got it from a friend, so it was used... and pretty damaged, so if i gaved a bad review, it was based on the actual state of the phone. It is pretty large, heavy, it does contain some kind of aluminum on the sides and back and some glass put over on back. One weird thing i found was the frontal camera on the down-right side and because i am a right-hand man, it was annoying, every time i had turn it upside down. It has 2 speakers but it sounds like it is just one. Volume buttons and the power button are on the right side, nothing on left side. It has only one main camera, and it sucks, for most of the time. And it has a frontal button like good ol' samsungs and iphones, that can serve as a fingerprint button.

    Launcher is basic, it has some useless pre-installed apps, an annoying browser, simple and lagish, so on this part it is pretty basic, no features that stands out.

    Positives
    • well build (in materials used)
    • pretty though builded
    • Runs pretty good (not every single time)
    • Pretty good speaker(s)
    Negatives
    • Bad pre-istalled browser (sometimes doesn't reconigze other browsers)
    • Battery (also no quickcharge)
    • Overheating (in a seriuos way)
    • The frontal camera position (i just hate it)
    • No kind of proof or resistant
    • (doesn't recognize my sim card internet )
    • 4.1
    • Screen6.0
    • Performance4.0
    • Camera5.3
    • Connectivity7.5
    • Battery0.0
  • Battery and usb-c port quality problems. Poor location accuracy. Otherwise sufficient performance.

    Positives
    • Big screen with great aspect ratios
    • Fall resistant
    • More than enough performance for day to day tasks
    Negatives
    • Poor battery
    • Quickly heats up

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.
