    It shows that it is Galaxy

    When I say that you can tell that it's Galaxy, I'm referring to the quality of the materials, the feel it has in the hand and the brightness of the screen... small details in the others don't exist and a good daytime camera (less the night one). ...better than many more expensive ones. Drop resistant. For day-to-day use it runs smoothly and doesn't pause, with regular updates, I'm already on system 12... and the battery lasts well over a day, I'd say two and a half

    Excellent cell phone for my needs

    I have been using this cell phone for about 2 or 3 months and it has not failed me at all. good processing for ordinary use, it works well in games without getting too hot when I play with my children, fornite, minecraft, roblox, call of duty, it's just fine. the Amoled screen is excellent, despite being only HD+, for what I use it for, it's fine, and I prefer this resolution and that it doesn't consume so much battery, to watch videos on a screen of this size with 720p is fine, something else would be if it were a 10-inch screen tablet. The battery lasts me between a day and a half and 2 days, thanks to the fact that the screen resolution is not FHD and that the processor is in a medium range, that allows energy savings, which is excellent for me. As for the camera, it's fine, I'm not a professional, but for common use it's fine, it focuses well, it's not that stable, but I've had worse cameras. As for the OS, it is very good, being Samsung it is expected that it would be well polished, with updates and without failures, which is appreciated. For a common use it is fine, for a Gamer use, better a POCO X3 PRO, which I had before, but the battery did not last as long and the camera was not better than this one.

    Pros
    • mid-range processing
    • battery lasts a long time thanks to the HD+ Amoled and CPU
    • good camera
    • good size and quality screen
    • I like the colors of the back cover
    Cons
    • sound is not stereo
    • the processor could be better

    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.
