Wiko View: the full review 2020

After LG’s G6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8, it’s Wiko’s turn to offer a smartphone with an 18: 9 aspect ratio screen, instead of the classic 16: 9. With a major advantage: a very affordable price, below 200 euros (and even 180 euros, for the model which integrates 16 GB of memory instead of 32 GB on this reviewed model). Let’s see if this is a good deal.

The advantage of the 5.7 inch 18: 9 screen is that it occupies more surface area on the front, with a significant decrease in black borders on the sides but also at the top and bottom of the screen. We thus have a large screen smartphone which remains of a reasonable width to take it easily in hand in vertical use.

We have reviewed it with several games without finding any particular problem, these being displayed in full screen (see above). On the other hand, vertical black bands appear when playing classic 16: 9 videos played in landscape mode, for example in YouTube, which is logical.

With the development of the 18: 9 format, developers are gradually tending to adapt their applications natively according to this ratio but it will still take some time for most of the applications to be affected: some small ones must therefore be expected display issues.

Entry level requires, the definition of the screen is limited to 1440 x 720 pixels (HD +), which corresponds to a resolution that remains fairly correct at 282 dots per inch. The IPS panel offers a good contrast ratio (1330 to 1) and correct brightness (399 cd / m² maximum) as long as you don’t use your smartphone outdoors in the sun.

The back favors metal

The back of the device has a metallic finish except at the top and bottom, where plastic is used to improve signal reception. Wiko gives the choice between four colors: blue, red, black and gold.

Good point, the smartphone has a fingerprint reader that proves to be reactive and quickly unlocks the View, even when it is in standby.

What you need under the hood

To animate its smartphone, Wiko chose a Snapdragon 425 processor (4 cores at 1.4 GHz), associated with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory for storage, including 22 GB available to the user. A comfortable configuration for working, watching and playing. Only sophisticated 3D games will pose real problems of display fluidity. The navigation in the interface of Android 7.1 remains pleasant, even if the responsiveness is not as high as on high-end models, of course. We have seen slight latency during scrolling operations, but this is not detrimental.

A little limited autonomy

The only small weakness of the Wiko View is in its endurance. Admittedly, it takes a whole day in communications, but we measured an average score during our versatile review which mixed uses more or less greedy in resources. The smartphone is then below 8 hours of autonomy, which is, in our opinion, a little fair. During a long train or plane trip, watching movies or series on the big screen of the View will be nice but will be worth bringing an external battery to ensure the end of the day.

Correct in photo and video

On the photo side, Wiko opts for a 16-megapixel front sensor for selfies with high definition and 13-megapixel rear. The latter offers a satisfactory quality outdoors, despite a lack of details and some extraneous noises that appear when you zoom in on the photo.

Unsurprisingly, these problems get worse when there is insufficient light, and the image may even become blurry. As for 1080p videos, they are rather pleasant to watch, despite an image that is not perfectly stabilized. Some faults which are unfortunately often inherent in low-cost smartphones.
