Wiko has become very little time in a reference mark within the segment of the free mobile with adjusted prices and already have a fairly broad catalog. Few days ago, the company unveiled the Wiko Highway, its first smartphone with eight-core processor and a new very slim design.
Wiko maintains the same display settings for its two most representative high-end. The large displays are a trend in the mobile sector and analyze two models that follow this line with a panel of 5 inches diagonally. It is a generous size, but still allows a relatively fluent even a hand. They also share the resolution, which is the standard FullHD 1080p and get a density of 441 ppi.
The design is quite a point that distinguishes Wiko Highway and Wiko Darkfull. The first appearance has a sleeker, straighter edge with slightly rounded corners and combines aluminum frame with glass resistant coating both sides. In addition it is also very thin and has a more elongated shape, giving it a more stylish touch. The Wiko Darkfull has a more rounded at the edges which makes it more comfortable to hold in your hand, plus its back cover is all aluminum and gives strength.
Although they are quite on par in terms of features, camera Wiko Highway is positioned ahead of its opponent. The new model features a 16 megapixel BSI sensor in the rear and a whopping 8 megapixels in the front, but yes, in this case has the BSI system. For its part Wiko Darkfull comes with a main 13 megapixel sensor (BSI) and a secondary of 5 megapixels, which is not bad. Both have LED flash, record FullHD videos and have several special functions such as magic camera or smile detection. The Wiko Highway sweetens it with the option to shoot pictures with effect HDR.
Where there is a tie is in the multimedia section, where both offers support for the same variety of formats of audio, video, or images. They also include a tuner FM radio with stereo sound, voice dictation and 3D sound.
We have already developed the principle that the Wiko Highway is the absolute winner in power, at least in this battle in particular. The terminal has a processor Cortex A7 with eight cores running at 2 GHz clock frequency. Meanwhile the Wiko Darkfull chip has four cores at 1.7 Ghz, also Cortex A7. Both have 2 GB of RAM, but the Highway offers a potential that, on paper, double the Wiko Darkfull. The internal memory is 16 GB in both cases, and neither allows expansion with MicroSD memory cards.
As for the operating system, the two come standard with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a version that has already been a bit outdated, so an update would be nice to at least Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. In any case the Wiko UI is a definite plus because it respects the design of Android and introduces no frills. Just as any other terminal with Android, the Wiko Highway and Wiko Darkfull I have the usual amenities package on all terminals with this mobile platform. The package includes the browser Google Chrome, the mail client Gmail, the calendar, contacts, Google Drive, Google Maps, and the app store Google Play among others.
The connectivity is a point that Wiko is usually maintained exactly the same in all its terminals launched to date. Both the Wiko Highway as the Wiko Darkfull have 3G connection to access the Internet from any place, only that the first will be able to connect to 21 Mbps while the second doubles the speed and can reach 42 Mbps. They also have GPS antenna to use localization services, Bluetooth file sharing or using attachments and the WiFi hotspot system that allows you to share the connection. The physical connections are port MicroUSB, connector headphones and a double slot to accommodate two SIM cards.
The Wiko Darkfull account with a built-in battery of 2,000 milliamps that lets you be on 10.4 hours in use with the 3G connection, 13.6 hours with the 2G connection and up to 175 hours at rest. For its part, the new Wiko Highway has a battery of 2,350 milliamps, but has not been published the official autonomy. However, it could be on a level that you can similar or lower if your processor consumes a lot of energy.
In case the camera is a higher resolution, but the other components and functions remain the same so the quality should not be affected. As for the processor, is a maneuver of claim, but it would really have to see if the power is doubled or improvement is less. The price difference between the two is 70 euros, a figure reasonable. The best of new Wiko Highway is undoubtedly the aluminum and glass design and slim chassis.
