  • It's a great value with little compromises

    It has the best previous processor (current 8 gen1), with one of the best samsung screens, a pretty compact size (make a small android phone already...) with decent battery life, encased on what I personally consider the best samsung phone design ever, all for a very competitive price.

    Overall a great hit by samsung, although I don't consider myself a "fan" I ended up buying this phone.

    Reddit tip: You can improve battery life enabling "Suspend execution of cached apps" on the Developer options ; )

    • Cameras (on par with S22 imo)
    Cons
    • Average battery life (you can make it to the end of the day, don't expect more)
    • 25W charging (c'mon Samsung)
    • No included charger (C'MON Samsung)
    • No headpone jack

  • Best upper midrange/semi-flagship option

    I got this to replace my Xiaomi 11T Pro and I gotta say, a Samsung phone can deliver a massive user experience difference. With my time using MIUI, I did like the OS but it did have some annoying implementations like a countdown when turning on some settings. One UI doesn't have that and it's still feature rich and pleasant to look at. The Snapdragon 888 in this phone doesn't heat up since I think they tuned the scheduling on this to not use high clock speeds all the time and when gaming the device maintains a 40-43 degree temperature, I monitored it using Samsung's PerfZ utility.

    Cameras are super amazing compared to MIUI's processing, I love Samsung's way of handling HDR and color reproduction. The OIS on 2 cameras (Main and Telephoto) are a wonderful experience, this is my first phone with OIS and photos have been better compared to my recent phones without OIS.

    I do miss the 120W Charging on the 11T Pro, this only has a 25W and can only be used with a PD brick. Charging takes around 1 hour and 10 minutes from 10-100% and it is fast but not blazingly fast like the 17 minute charging time I had with the Xiaomi. Battery life is similar on both devices too, I can get roughly around 5-6 hours on 120Hz mode. Using 60hz on both devices had small difference in battery in my use case (around an extra 30-40 minutes of sot) so I just keep mine on 120hz and dial it back down to 60hz when I'm leaving the house.

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.
