  • Amazing phone !!!

    This phone has surpassed my expectations in every aspect, including my only complaint...the batter could be a little bigger so that it lasts more than a day. I usually wake up and start the day at 9 and some times I find my self charging my phone around 7 if I use it plenty through out the day , if I leave it alone, it can go to up to next day. Another thing that its
    a little too much ita the price range. It may be top of the line, but Samsung can definitely lower the price. Again it's a very amazing piece of hardware, Just a slightly better/larger battery and a lower price and it's unstoppable. Also, I've read that the charging speed its stupid slow, how ever I didn't face this issue, it charges at a normal rate. But it could have a more effective fast charge...or a charge in the box to begin with...great phone still!!

    Pros
    • Excellent Hardware and software
    • Camara quality its amazing
    • Smooth gliding through the system
    • Pleanty of storage
    • Updates are fetured packed and fixes a lot of bugs
    • Display its clean and crystal clear
    Cons
    • Battery life its a little short for the price
    • Too expensive
    • Night time photos still needs some toches but not
    • Charges a little slow
    • No charger on the box

  • I wish I had never gotten this phone!!!

    I let the AT&T rep talk me into it, and boy am I sorry!! My You cannot set it to automatically add the date to your photos, and adding the date to each picture /manually/individually, is ridiculous! Also, you cannot keep the original photo if you crop it. It only saves the edited one, where before, it saved both! The lightest touch turns on the camera, even though I have it set to 'ignore' accidental touches. I don't like the way the contacts listed in my speed dial, do not show immediate access to sending them a text, like before. I also hate that stupid Bixby crap! I wish I had my galaxy 8 back!!

    Pros
    • Better cvrge than I had when Tmobile bought Sprint
    • Screen is a little bigger.
    • GPS doesn't drag...
    Cons
    • Charges slowly, and loses power quickly
    • Both ends of the charging cord are the same
    • Can't charge it in my car now
    • No way to set automatic dates for photos
    • Calendar is very bland & dates are not highlighted
    • Doesn't also save original pics when you edit them

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.
