Is the Y61 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The Y61 16 GB is almost a model.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.99 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone has GPS.You know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this Y61 16 GB doesn’t have 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.With a power of 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
Wiko did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right choice for watching movies?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.The same goes for listening 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.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the Y61 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.99 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 480 x 960.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
Wiko sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Wiko’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Wiko has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 3000 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Wiko is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this Y61 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.It’s not the best device for making selfies.Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.This Y61 16 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
