  • Lasted 5+ years

    I bought the phone about two months after release, I currently still use it, though to have a smoother phone with better performance, I flashed a different ROM, a different kernel and a different recovery. I also use Evie launcher, its simple, lightweight and very useful. Though nowadays the phone has lag if the internal memory is close to full, or when an application is using a lot of ram. One weird thing I had since a year is that the phones freezes and has a black screen when I use flash to take photos if the night display mode is on (the feature that makes your screen turn orangy).

    I'm looking to replace it atm just to be sure I don't lose its data, though I'm sure it can do another 2 years

    Positives
    • still perfectly useable for the latest social media apps and for browsing the web
    • smooth when mutlitasking between social media
    • built to last 5+ years (if you care well for it)
    • mid- to high-end cpu for todays standards
    • snapdragon 801 2.5ghz (2.8ghz overclocked)
    • able to run android 7 smoothly, android 8 gave lag
    Negatives
    • mutlitasking becomes hard thanks to app updating for phones with more ram
    • can no longer run high demanding games
    • the camera is bad for macro, easily out of focus
    • can get warm
    • can freeze if internal memory is below 1gb free
    • horrible nightshots, only sees light sources a bit

  • A good phone, but I'd recommend something newer.

    I purchased this phone some time ago, and it's been pretty decent. Doesn't run demanding games outstandingly, due to it's old SOC (Snapdragon 801 from 2014). It's interface is quite skinned, which is why I installed Lineage on it. Battery was bad for me but this could be due to battery deterioration, which is convienently easily replaceable on this phone. If you’re buying a phone in 2019 and you’re thinking of this I’d recommend an SE or chip in some extra to get, say, an S7. It’d last you much longer.

    Positives
    • Comfy
    • Nice camera
    • Still runs alright.
    • Beautiful screen.
    Negatives
    • Old 2014 CPU (32-bit)
    • Hard to see in the sun
    • Default ROM is sucky

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.
