    It is a fine and elegant mobile although over valued.

    Despite being a pretty smart phone has shortcomings that make the value for money is not very good. After a year of using it you can see faults that you should not have for the price you have. It also has something very surprising that I liked a lot and it is an application in which tepones in contact through direct messages with the customer support of the manufacturer and you can expose what you want, from reporting phone failures to proposals for new apps or Utilities. The preinstalled applications are few, in the style of Huawei.

    Good team Midrange

    With the upgrade to Android 6.0.1 faring much better, fluid, good camera photos day in photos in low light or at night are usually fair to poor quality in terms of video recording is good but with the camera app factory video sound is bad (you have to download an app that allows change the microphone). The sound is excellent is signed by JBL.

    I recommend buying those who want a good device with an audio TOP and a dignified sensors. BUT...

    But ... I have not taught by God, but in any case it is low-cut screen; The bar is tastisi ghostata and not too much pressure on the white spots have appeared in some particular points. The room was frosted glass, not scratched. For the rest it is flawless except for some sporadic lag, but this was due to the fact that I was a stress use and was constantly saturated. Updated to version 6.0.1 of Android this summer. Do not get me wrong the criticism, it is a great device, only I recommend it to an attentive audience; A phone for ladies! In champagne color it is one of the few phones that maintains their dignity.

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.
