    • The gold standard for commoditized mobiles.

      This was the best commodity mass produced handset in history in my view. Cheap, trustworthy and decent hardware (except battery which is easily replaced). A huge aftermarket, ROM scene and open source scene exists into 2021 due to this architecture. With mobile Linux ports (KDE, UBPorts, postmarket etc) there will be open mobile development and hardware going forward.
      Have a box full of Nexus phones that still get use or dev time, don't ever toss a Nexus 5 unless tossing it on to eBay for the next dev.

    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.
