    • Great Camera + Sound Effects for Music Player + Still Works as my music player!!

      I am a great admirer of SONY phones dating back to Sony J5(released on 2000), never changed from Sony products because of their features integration of audio and display + gaming!!

      Sony Z1 phone was released on 2013 but still works amazingly. It has ClearAudio+, 5 band Equalizer, Clear Bass, and surround sound features integrated in to the Sony music player. The display supports Mobile Bravia Engine 2 with brightness and white balance control. It has One-touch setup of Xperia devices, Throw settings, Screen Mirroring, Dual Shock-3 PlayStation controller connect feature, MirrorLink to connect to supported cars HUD.

    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.
