  • Old but still excellent budget smartphone that's more than good enough for basic tasks.

    Got it more than a year ago and it was an old smartphone even then. I've been using it as a basic backup phone and it has performed quite well. Android version is still stuck in Kitkat 4.4.4 but the MIUI was updated to Global 9.2 which provided some minor performance gains. Rear camera takes decent daylight pictures while the front camera is just average. The small capacity but removable battery lasts a day of light to moderate use in simple and basic tasks.

    Positives
    • Good rear camera for an old budget smartphone
    • Fits in one hand
    • Removable battery
    Negatives
    • No OS updates in a long time, stuck in Kitkat 4.4.4
    • Low RAM and internal storage capacity
    • Some Xiaomi bloatwares

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.
