Y80 16 Go for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
In terms of size, this Y80 16 Go is about average.With a size of 5.99 inches, it is easy to carry on your travels.
It is designed to be used for watching a movie as well as for surfing on the internet.Wiko seems to have designed a device capable of withstanding the hardships you might put it through.In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.This model allows you to manage several operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
Detail that is missing on this Y80 16 Go is the absence of reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the top of the battery ranking with an on-board power of 4000 mAH.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
On the question of loading, Wiko has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.99 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.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.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this Y80 16 Go at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.Knowing that some users need more space, Wiko has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that during intensive play, the battery is put to the test.On this model, there is little to worry about: it is on the best side of autonomy.Equipped with a power of 4000 mAh, you’ll be able to play all day long.With a nice design, it’s a smartphone that you like to hold in your hands.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.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.
For audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Wiko has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
Unsurprisingly, Wiko installed an efficient photo sensor and integrated it perfectly into Android.And finally, there are 2 targets on this phone.
The photo resolution of this Y80 16 Go is 13 Mp, which gives a nice picture.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.The sensor of this Y80 16 Go is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
Finally, the Y80 16 Go…
This Y80 16 Go meets the majority of use cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.In conclusion, it is a good product.
