  • Older, relatively decent phone with few huge shortcomings.

    Older, relatively decent phone with few huge shortcomings. HTC is well known for their hate towards bigger batteries so this one is no exception. You cant see $(#(#$ on sunglith, like literally cant see anything if sun is too bright, and biggest fault of them all is 4gb storage which comes with a twist... 3,5gb of 4gb is preinstalled with crap you cant remove so you are left with 500ish mb, in 2017. I know its older phone but theres really no reason to buy this one even if you can get it super cheap because you will run out of space in a day.

    On a bright side, several years later it still works and quality of wifi/calls is good most of the time. Camera in bright conditions isnt really much worse than most newer cameras (bar flagships) but in night mode its just bad. It does have flash though, but everything filmed with flash ends up being overly yellow so if you want to take pics at night, look elsewhere.

    Pros
    • Daylight Camera
    • Wifi
    • Its durable
    • It still works after 3-4 years so theres that
    Cons
    • Battery
    • 4gb storage infested with bloatware
    • Only 500..ish mb of real storage

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.
