    The best flagship in terms of price-quality ratio

    Perhaps the flagship with Snap 8 gen2 at the time of release is better for the price. Apparently due to the unpopularity of the Moto (Lenovo) brand, the price range of this smartphone has been reduced in China, so top-end hardware is at a low price. The smartphone literally (except for the cameras) has the best hardware. As for the cameras: they shoot well, especially video: both in high resolution. The photos are quite good, but it is worth considering - this is not a camera phone and you should not expect super quality. If you want super quality, these flagships are many times higher in cost. The only negative is the lack of multilingualism: only 2 languages EN and CN. Pre-installed applications are deleted via PC. The firmware interface can be partially Russified (the main applications and everything will not be stock in Russian, the settings menu is 50/50) and install Gaps.

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.
