In a few words
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.Already at the level of the operating system of this Y50 8 Go: here, it is an Android with all the Wiko ecosystem that goes with it.
Considering that this is not a prohibitive measure, let’s see if this article is made for you.
Our tests have shown that this Y50 8 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.In short, it is a product with an attractive price.

The Y50 8 Go, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
That Y50 8 Go looks really small.A size of 5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.You know where you stand.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.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Y50 8 Go is the absence of 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.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.The 2200 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Wiko did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.The same goes for listening to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 480 x 854.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
As on many other smartphones, you have here an LCD screen.LCDs are now technically mastered in production lines.
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 finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.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.
After our tests, we find out that this Y50 8 Go is in the lowest rankings.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.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.It’s 8 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.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 2200 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 195* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.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 has a long history of designing quality products.
It’s a surprise from Wiko.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this Y50 8 Go is among the lowest on the market.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.This Y50 8 Go allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The Y50 8 Go in conclusion
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.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
