    Rugged phone with good battery for daily use

    To me in particular I really like the black design is elegant does not bother me at all that it is wider and a little smaller than the average in these years. The battery is very good and holds me at the end of the day on average is 10% for 1 hour usually. the cameras are good they have not given me a problem. something a little bad is that the sensors every 5 times you use them work 4 or already very rare 3 times to me in particular I do not care much but it is everyone's. the resistance is very good endures falls down the stairs very well. the water resistance Ip68 I have not tried it quite well but if I have left it on a tarja few moments and it works well. in terms of fluidity is not the best but it fulfills its function well even though sometimes it gives a few small lags but already in extreme cases of quite a lot of use it is followed up considerably but as heavy applications it does not give many problems.

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.
