The Y80 16 Go, enough for internet use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The Y80 16 Go is in the middle of its class.Its 5.99 -inch screen is a good compromise.
Writing text messages, looking at photos or surfing social networks, everything is clear on this screen.Wiko seems to have designed a device capable of withstanding the hardships you might put it through.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.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
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.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
We found out that this Y80 16 Go doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
For the battery, this phone includes one of the most powerful with 4000 mAH and therefore a better autonomy.You won’t have to recharge in the middle of the day.
Wiko did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
The right choice for watching movies?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.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.
On the multimedia side, the Y80 16 Go is well done.It’s comparable to competing products.It has an 5.99 -inch screen with good colour rendering.Perfectly suited for viewing videos on the internet.And with a resolution of 720 x 1440 the image will be sharp.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.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.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Wiko smartphone for online or local games
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
After our tests, we find out that this Y80 16 Go is in the lowest rankings.The components are starting to date (Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
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.And because Wiko predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Games involve intense use of the battery.This model is equipped with one of the best batteries of the moment.A power of 4000 mAh will give you all day to play.And with its attractive design, you’ll never let it go again.
Most of the applications we download today require performance.The reading comfort of this model is good.This model has a good level of configuration, with an 5.99 -inch screen.A level of precision that allows you to read the news on the internet and have fluid images.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
For audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Wiko has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company designed a camera lens with all the necessary connections to Android.By the way it’s not one but 2 lenses installed on this phone.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this Y80 16 Go is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.In fact, it’s enough to make some nice pictures or a few holiday movies.However, it does not have HDR technology.
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 phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
What about the Y80 16 Go?
The design of smartphones is now a core business of Wiko.The Y80 16 Go offers almost all the features of the previous model, and allows you to play all the latest games without any problems.
Our tests have shown that this Y80 16 Go is among the best of the moment.In conclusion, a very good choice.
