    It sucks even if you want a cheap phone there many other better options. I bought it 137 euros, I regret it so much, it was a really bad purchase! In my opinion, it shouldn't cost more than 70-75 euros according to its standards and performance.

    LG K8, the worst way to lose your money

    LG K8 (LG-X240, Claro Argentina) From the first day it hangs permanently, the GPS is lost in the first corner and then disconnected, the apps fail and close, the performance is pathetic (all soooooooo much), the radio gets change alone, and when the situation is no more, it restarts itself. Can you imagine what it is like not to be able to answer an incoming call because the screen to accept it does not get to be drawn? Well, that is the K8. Even after the factory reset (only solution provided by the null support of Claro and LG) the same symptoms reappear within a few minutes. Obviously, either the design is bad or it is a failed unit for which the manufacturer and the seller want to take responsibility for us (just as serious as the other). First and last experience with this brand.

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.
