  • Heel goede prijs kwaliteit midrange smartphone

    Ik heb veel opzoekwerk gedaan naar een goede prijs kwaliteit midrange smartphone rond de 200€. Omdat de meeste smartphones toch maar 2jaar updates krijgen en de batterij het in de meeste gevallen ook niet langer mee gaat ga ik zeker geen half maandloon uitgeven. Ik was tussen drie modellen aan het twijfelen, de Moto g7 (249€), maar daar zijn de updates niet zeker van. De Xiaomi redmi note 7 (209€) maar daar was de software niet altijd even stabiel. En dus deze Samsung a40. En heb er nog geen seconde spijt van gehad ja er zijn er veel snellere, en er hebben er een grotere scherm maar dan krijg je u smartphone met moeite nog in u broekzak. De selfie camera met schermflits duurt wel heel lang om een foto te maken maar hij neemt eigenlijk prima selfies zonder flits bij weinig licht. Voor de prijs zeker een zeer goede smartphone

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.
