  • A SPEEDY SMARTPHONE THAT GETS ALL THE LATEST SECURITY PATCHES

    Incredible phone so far and I should know, I've had plenty of smartphones before this. If you're looking for regular security updates and a beautifully designed device this is one of your best choices. I bought mine used, in great condition, for just $250CDN. Phone works perfectly with Rogers here in Canada as it has all the required LTE bands for incredible coverage.

    My favourite part is the clean Android install with zero bloatware. Also it gets updates every month. Fantastic for security minded users. I'm currently running official Android Q Beta 3, Android Version 10. May 5, 2019 security patch.

    Pros
    • Clean Android install, no bloatware
    • Excellent LTE bands for maximum coverage
    • Beautiful design with ceramic backing
    Cons
    • No headphone jack
    • No IR blaster
    • No IP/water resistance rating

  • Very good phone

    I love this phone and his possibilities.
    I bought it for $200 from second hand(OLX). For this price it is very nice bargain.
    It has only one bug and it is sometimes during charging with old cable, touch screen has (I don't know how to write it) a problem, but with new cable it doesn't appear.

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.
