  • Battery after almost 2 years is a straight joke.

    Phone is very well built, but glass back broke after fall from 30 cm on a wooden floor. Glad it has IP68, love it, but surely design is a bit outdated now. Absolutely awesome AMOLED display, reliable fingerprint unlock. Cameras are OK, but nowhere near good, daylight needs HDR, otherwise something is blown out or too dark, night shots are just simply impossible. Problems start when there are clouds, and if you want a decent photo in a dark room, not plain black, just little bit darker than a stromy weather is like, you simply can't get it, same with indoor shots helped only with ceiling lamp. Connectivity is good, overall hardware(except battery and that camera) is on point, just enough for normal use, and it has USB-C, which was not that obvious back at its release. Speaker is weak and uncomfortable to hear, but will do for YT chatting shows or sth.

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.
