    Well first of all there are many better phones than this one at a lower price, but on the other hand, if you buy it to play bye

    I personally like the design, despite being very simple, its screen is very bad, it only lets you see videos in 480p and if you see something in HD it gets slow, in simple games like geometric dash, Subway surfers, candy crush, etc, it is good but in games that require a bit because the phone will run them at 2 fps and it will overheat too much, its battery well, I used it all day and night and I only had to charge it 1 time or 2 which I think is The only redeemable thing, I only recommend it as a second phone to keep you connected on the street and not risk carrying a powerful phone, and to watch videos, check social networks but even there, the camera is not sooo bad

    Do not buy it, unless it is to give it to a grandfather

    It is a complete poronga. I am 11 years old and when I want to go to youtube, I click on a video ... IT LOOKS! I literally click to watch a video and it locks up. It doesn't work for people like me because I play and make videos and it hangs. The 1GB RAM? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING WITH 1GB OF RAM? Not to mention that the one who sold it to us had the high face of an asshole swindler. The battery and the camera at least is fine, the other a complete garbage. Right now I'm making a sacrifice to write this. Returning to the other, when they had bought me 2 weeks ago it was already wrong. The wallpaper moves, zooms in, a complete shit.

    Strange to use.

    Performance is not as good in simple tasks as using Whatsapp and browsing the internet. It is also not a cell phone to play with, it has an interesting rear camera, a good front and records videos with top quality.

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.
