The Y60 16 GB, enough for internet use?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
Y60 16 GB’s really small.A modest 5.45-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone has GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Y60 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.With a power of 2500 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.Keep your charger handy.
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.
The right model for multimedia use?
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.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 480 x 960.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
It is classically equipped with an LCD screen.This technology offers a good visual result.
For the audio part, Wiko wanted to do well.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.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Y60 16 GB is low in power.The MediaTek MT6739WA 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 model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Wiko has provided a free space for an extension.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.With a power of 2500 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
The tool to make photos, movies?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Wiko has a long history of designing quality products.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Y60 16 GB.With a definition of only 5 Mp, you will have lower quality images.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.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.The sensor of this Y60 16 GB 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.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
Finally, the Y60 16 GB…
This Y60 16 GB is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
