A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this Y50 8 Go, Wiko chose Android.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
This Y50 8 Go makes almost any use possible without difficulty.
It’s a very good quality model.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
|Avoid choosing this phone for|
|Making photos or movies|
What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
Y50 8 Go’s really small.A size of 5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
The device is equipped with Wifi.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 2200 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Wiko has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
We would have liked the Y50 8 Go to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 480 x 854.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
It is classically equipped with an LCD screen.LCDs are now technically mastered in production lines.
On the audio side, Wiko wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Wiko phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this Y50 8 Go at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The MediaTek MT6739WA processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 8 GB, which is low.And because Wiko predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its power of 2200 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Wiko is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Y50 8 Go.A photo resolution of 5 Mp which gives a low quality result.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .The editing function is out of date.This Y50 8 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This smartphone has only 8 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
In short, the Y50 8 Go, the right choice?
Our tests have shown that this Y50 8 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.It’s average, but still a very good product.In conclusion, it is a good product.
