    Very good phone, 8hs of screen. Poor pixel density under 300 and no 5g wifi. For the rest is ok.

  • Great phone BUT uses 32bit android instead of 64bit

    This S2 will turn 1 y.o in july. So far so good, never play heavy games (tried ragnarok eternal love 1hr, no bad experience. tried eternium for 1 month, no prob) so can't comment much on that, but angrybird pop refuse to load after 2 game updates (via playstore) after installing. I also CANNOT get a good quality pic compared to my old phones which is weird because this phone uses the exact same sensor as my old Sony Ericson phone, the EXMOR. probably being a recurring oppo user renders my photography skill from so-so to stupid. BUT the biggest letdown of this phone is the 32bit OS instead of google warning back in 2017 that they will stop supporting 32bit apps by 2021, starting from August 2019. I am currently weighing the fact, to either trade, or get an entirely different brand. This is my 1st xiaomi though.

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.
