  • Best phone I've ever had. Still my daily phone Nov 2021. High bar for replacement.

    Bought used off Amazon, still getting a day out of a battery. Bright crisp display, night photos are grainy but it's a 5yo phone so somewhat expected. Only reason I'm looking at replacement is no more updates. I got android 11 but eventually my bank will stop allowing access due to no updates.
    Still, this phone is amazing, need a solid performer for daily tasks outside of banking? Need a great sounding phone for kids or aging parents with an all day battery, good wifi and LTE coverage that works just about everywhere? Get this phone. Want a travel phone and leave your $2000 daily driver at home? Get the pixel 2xl.

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.
