    A good low range

    While Windows Phone is a failure recognized by Microsoft itself, the fact that this phone comes standard with this operating system does as many favors as problems, on the one hand WP being a light OS makes with the limited specifications of the terminal to run everything in a fluid way, the bad part is that there are not as many apps as in the other systems of the competition, anyway I loved it and I still like very much the interface that presents the user.

    Positives
    • Good screen (HD)
    • Decent camera
    • Well optimized
    • Very good modern visual appearance (Windows)
    Negatives
    • Windows 10 Mobile
    • Finishing in plastic

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.
