Reviews for the Wiko Lenny 3

78.2% Wiko Lenny 3 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
The 3rd Generation. The Wiko Lenny 3 applies a fresh coat of paint to the budget smartphone series. Wiko hopes the improved screen and cameras will receive good customer reviews. We reviewed the smartphone and here are our findings.
60% Classy but Heavy
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
The Wiko Lenny 3 is all about having a metallic smartphone design rather than putting emphasis on features, therefore it is really difficult to recommend the phone to anyone due to its asking price tag and competition that the product faces. At the price of RM379, the Lenny 3’s features aren’t compelling enough to turn heads but as I said, look away from the flaws and just focus on its design, then you will be fine.

Comment

Model: It may be a budget smartphone, yet Wiko’s Lenny 3 still gives a bang for the buck. The 3rd generation in the Lenny series is improved in terms of its hardware and even comes in a wider array of colors i.e. space grey, brown, lime, cinnabar, gold and rose gold. For a budget phone, the Lenny 3 is a weighty device when compared to its rival, the RedMi from another Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi. This is hardly surprising as it comes with a removable metal cover. Its dimensions measure at 145 x 73.1 x 9.9 mm. With metal rounded corners, it feels comfortable for holding. By removing the back cover, users will be able to access two SIM slots (a micro-SIM and a nano-SIM) as well as the microSD card slot (capable of up to 64 GB). Despite the lack of LTE support, it is capable of supporting 4 GSM and 3 UMTS frequencies. WiFi connectivity on this phone is decent albeit performance proves to be better on its competitors from Huawei. GPS coverage is also reliable and accurate.

The Lenny 3 has an 8 MP, 1080p camera with autofocus and LED flash on the back, as well as a 5 MP front-facing snapper. Many would agree that the cameras on the Huawei’s Honor 5C would rank better; nevertheless the cameras on the Lenny 3 produce more superior picture quality than that of many other low end smartphones. Sound quality appears loud and clear from its speakers but lacks bass. Moreover, it features FM radio. The Lenny 3 has a special "WiCube" cover, which allows users to display data in cubes in a pyramid form. In addition, it is USB OTG supported. A standard 24-month warranty is offered on Wiko’s devices. The 5-inch display of the Lenny 3 with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels is quite good for a device in this price range. As its brightness appears to be on the lower side, outdoor use is highly limited. But, thank to the IPS technology, viewing angles are quite good.

The device runs on Mediatek MT6580M SoC (System-on-Chip), which offers 4 cores at a clock speed of up to 1.3 GHz. Gaming performance stays on an average level but phones like this aren't made for gaming anyway. The same goes with its battery life, whereby in this aspect, RedMi will surpass it with its higher 4100 mAh capacity compared to the Lenny 3's 2000 mAh capacity. It is apparent that there is a notable improvement to the Lenny 3 and as mentioned above, it is a good entry-level smartphone considering its low price factor.

Wiko:

Wiko SAS was founded as a French smartphone manufacturer in 2011. Since 2014, the Chinese technology group Tinno Mobile has owned a majority of Wiko. They produce in China. The company has already reached a considerable market share in the French market in early years and expanded to Europe and Africa later on. Nevertheless, the world market share is low.

Reviews are only available since 2014, that is since the first international expansion. Recently, the number of reviews has increased. The ratings are average (as of 2016).


72.87%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
