  • First, I had the FRD-L14, but for some reason the info page doesn't exist for that model.

    My user experience is for the FRD-L14 (USA) model, not the L19. They unfortunately did not have a page or information for the L14, so did it this way.
    Now my experience: Camera quality was superior to anything I used before, Including my Nexus 5X. Camera features worked flawlessly, especially on scenery shots. Mobile radio had constant 3 to 4 bars ensuring a solid connection no matter where I was. Loved having 4GB of ram for multi-tasking requirments and the 64GB storage was ample for me for the time I owned it. The screen was amazing in both color and resolution. The only drawback for me was the lack of battery power, which would last a solid day for me with my internet browsing and gaming habits. For some users, that would be ok, but my daily life could sometimes keep me from a charger for days at a time, so a little more battery power would have done the trick for me. The EMUI user interface, while restricted, allows for a lot of customizations if you know how and where to look.

Ki Price/Quality
Not available
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.
