    Very good

    Very good qualities at a good price. A very good team. Notch embedded in the screen makes you feel amplitude, very good quality of the Amoled screen at 90 Hz. The 8 GB of RAM + the Helio G96, which although it is from a previous generation, is very well optimized and performs much more, makes everything go smoothly and good response in video games (Future Fight, Minecraft, NFS Heat Studio). A beautiful camera by day and good results in low light. Fast charge of 33w more than acceptable and sufficient, use it and see. In the negative it is basically nothing, it complies with everything. Good sound, good screen, good camera, good fluidity, good performance, very good software and layer, good battery and efficiency (lasts 1 day and left over to leave overnight, with normal use, videos, occasional games, etc.), Good price and a very good option for those who want everything without going any further. If you are one of those who is not enthusiastic about Xiaomi, dare to try products like this. I did it and it was worth it.

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.
