The Y50 8 Go adapted for internet use and travel ?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The Y50 8 Go is almost a model.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.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.There’s GPS on this phone.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
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.With a power of 2200 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
On the question of loading, Wiko has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.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 at the bottom of our ranking.The 5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
As on many other smartphones, you have here an LCD screen.As a reminder, LCD (liquid crystal display) is a liquid crystal display technology.
Wiko has also designed this product for audio use.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The sound result is of a good level.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.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.
In the end, we found that the power of this Y50 8 Go is below its competitors.Its MediaTek MT6739WA processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This phone only defaults to 8 GB; that’s probably fair.But some of you will need more; that’s why Wiko has left a free slot for a memory card.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.With a power of 2200 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.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
What about the videos?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many 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.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Generally speaking, Wiko has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Y50 8 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.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.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This smartphone has only 8 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The Y50 8 Go, a good choice for the right use
This Y50 8 Go meets the majority of use cases.It’s a very good quality model.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
