    • For $10 it's this or a lunch.

      It's not good, and the spec sheet certainly shows that. But at least the camera is alright at taking photos. You don't really notice a lot of the downsides due to not being able to test them due to the limitations of Windows phone. But eh I got this phone for $20 like 2 years ago and for that price (and you can find it for $10 now) you can't exactly go wrong if you're too broke to afford anything else. It works, it's reliable, and that's really what it's for.

      Positives
      • Clean OS
      • Reliable (dropped it quite a few times)
      • You can remove the battery
      Negatives
      • No app support at all
      • Slow chipset (but works well with the OS)
      • Probably footage but I didn't shoot any
      • 6.9
      • Screen7.0
      • Performance6.6
      • Camera3.5
      • Connectivity4.3
      • Battery7.0
    • I loved windows phone, but has no updates and poor apps

      low cost smartphone, but only for basic user.

      Positives
      • light
      Negatives
      • no flash
      • no front camera
      • 3.8
      • Screen3.3
      • Performance5.3
      • Camera2.0
      • Connectivity7.0
      • Battery9.0
    • Outdated but can be obtained pretty cheap

      Outdated buy only if you want a phone for calls text and basic Internet. Worth not more than 30$

      Positives
      • OTA security updates every month
      Negatives
      • Only 4 inch screen
      • Battery is weak
      • Limited apps on Windows store
      • 5
      • Screen6.8
      • Performance5.3

    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.
