  • Tye only downside is the cameras, all of'em


    Pros:
    - Beautiful boxy design. You love to look at it, especially the rear.
    - Sturdy build quality. Really rigid.
    - Very Good speakers, not excellent.
    - Dependable battery life. A solid day of heavy usage.
    - Crazy fast charging from flat to 100% in just 36 minutes.
    - Good screen quality but not vivid.
    - Very bright screen under sunlight.
    - Blistering performance thanks to Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It’s going to be rapid for the next 5 years.
    - RAM and Storage 16GB/1T
    - IR Blaster ( Remote )
    - Built-in High quality clandestine Call recording function.
    - OriginOs: Really handy smart features ( make ur life easy)
    - Good Haptic feedback, albeit not great.


    Cons:
    - Big phone. Unmanageable with one hand. Two-hand use is a must.
    - Average Wide angle. doesn't match the main camera in terms of everything.
    - Can't switch between lenses when in Video.
    - Oversharpening from all cameras, especially the front. Horrible, and disgusting.
    -The 2x and 3x zoom are good. However, anything above 3x is useless. Really crappy.
    - Very bad Front Facing Camera, both in photos and Videos. Sucks. The worst I ever had.
    - When shooting video from the wide angle, you can't zoom or switch to the other cameras. This is bulshit.
    When shooting a video, you drag to zoom in. But to zoom out you have to keep clicking multiple times, really frustrating

    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.
