  • Samsung Galaxy S3 is the first phone for 4 months before I have Acer Z220

    My first phone is better than Acer Z220 and powerful device I ever used. When I last used it in 2018, the power battery spoilt when I want to shut down. I used it since March 2015 to July 2015

  • Laggy with stock touchwiz, roms save the phone.

    The physical phone itself is designed well. Phone was easy to pull apart and fix. Speaker was placed bad tho. I had issues with the headphone jack as did most people. Charging port also gave out a year in. Overall a good cheap temporary phone or mp3 player, but in 2019 as a daily driver, i would not use.

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.
