    It is a more targeted phone like a child and his first smartphone or an older adult because you can not demand much

    I have it and I'm going to change it but I bring it with 2 years of use and since the first year it was horrible. (It shouldn't happen to anyone) It was restarting Solo The phone suddenly turned off saying it had a small battery even if it is not true. Space is not enough for pre-installed phone apps and it failed too much

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.
