Case, equipment and operation

Wiko Y80 is available in three colours (blue, gold and bleen) and has a removable back. Nevertheless, the battery is firmly installed and is not intended to be changed by the user, which is why a thick foil has been stuck over it. There are also three slots under the plastic cover: one each for a micro-SIM, nano-SIM and microSD card. While the design looks a bit old-fashioned, the workmanship is on a good level, only the gap dimensions aren't always quite even on closer inspection. 

For data exchange and charging the smartphone, a micro-USB port is available, which supports OTG. Beside the analog radio receiver there is also an audio jack integrated, furthermore the memory can be extended by a microSD card. There is no DRM certification, but this can be tolerated due to the low picture resolution.

Android 9.0 Pie is used as the operating system, over which the French put their in-house Wiko launcher. Wiko hasn't made any statements about a possible update to Android 10 so far, but we think this is unlikely. 

In terms of communication modules, the entry-level mobile phone offers only the most necessary. The single-band WLAN isn't particularly fast, but delivers quite stable transfer rates in tests with our reference router, the Netgear Nighthawk AX12. The Y80 is well-equipped for mobile communications in terms of supported bands in the 2G and 3G range, but we miss band 28 for LTE. NFC must be omitted. 

The touchscreen reacts quite quickly and reliably in the test, and the sliding properties of the glass surface aren't to be criticized either. There is no fingerprint sensor, instead Wiko relies on 2D face recognition, which works quite reliably, but is less secure.

Cameras - Wiko mobile with Dual-Cam

The front camera overdoes it when taking portraits and has a quite aggressive soft focus, which can also be deactivated. The pictures could use a bit more dynamic. 

The dual camera on the back offers an additional lens for collecting depth information. In good lighting conditions, the pictures look a bit dark and quite cool. Moreover, the lens tends to be partially overexposed, but the sharpness is okay. 

Videos are recorded at 1,080p (30 FPS) on both sides. The sound is accompanied by an audible noise and the autofocus often needs some time to adjust.

Display - Good panel in Wiko Y80

Sub-pixel Array

The almost six-inch IPS display of the Wiko Y80 only offers the small HD resolution, which is sufficiently high resolution, but individual pixels may well be visible. The brightness is on a good level and can be called up even when the ambient light sensor is deactivated and remains constant during the APL50 measurement. 

It's also pleasing that we can't detect any flickering of the panel. The CalMAN analysis shows a visible blue cast, which is reflected in everyday life as a cool image display, but isn't disturbing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
34.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 20.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 90 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
77.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 37.2 ms rise
↘ 40.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 99 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9596 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life

Pink noise measurements

The Wiko Y80 is driven by an exotic processor, which, however, succeeds in achieving a convincing system performance despite the lame memory. Demanding games are certainly not the smartphone's métier, but for small casual games it is enough.

The surface temperatures rise up to 34°C under constant load, but this is absolutely harmless. 

The loudspeaker on the back of the Wiko phone is very high pitched and sounds a bit shrill, low tones almost completely disappear. The sound output via the audio jack is inconspicuous and low-noise, but is accompanied by an audible hum, and the basses are not very pronounced here either. Playback via Bluetooth (SBC and LDAC) works perfectly. 

Despite the 4,000 mAh battery, the Y80 is the tail light in the comparison field. The runtimes are good, but should have been higher with such a strong energy storage.

In review: Wiko Y80. Test device provided by:

A smartphone for under 100 Euros often demands a lot of compromises from the user, which is certainly the case with the Wiko Y80, but the French find a quite successful middle way, which makes this smartphone a cheap alternative. 

The look is probably a matter of taste and the workmanship is absolutely fine. Positive in any case is the fully-fledged dual-SIM solution and an optional memory expansion, including support for the exFAT file system. Especially the latter is by no means mandatory in this price range. The Wiko phone's memory is very slow in the test, but this is hardly noticeable in everyday use. If you use your mobile phone primarily for social media or messengers, you won't notice any limitations. 

The Wiko Y80 is primarily aimed at smartphone newcomers and savers.

The IPS display presents good measurement results. In terms of brightness, it will be difficult at best in direct sunlight, but Wiko refrained from using pulse width modulation for this. In combination with the low minimum brightness and the comfort view, it is therefore also ideal for reading in the evening.

But there are also limitations to be accepted. There is no notification LED or fingerprint sensor, nor is there a DRM certification. In addition, the older micro-USB port has to be preferred and the internal memory is not only slow but also very small.

The Wiko Y80 is therefore certainly a great alternative for beginners or as a first time mobile phone for children. For a two-digit amount, comparatively much smartphone is offered, if you don't want to spend more, you can access it without hesitation.

Already as a little dwarf I was fascinated by my Commodore 16 and ignited my enthusiasm for computers. With my first modem I surfed the Btx and later also the World Wide Web. The latest technology trends have always fascinated me and this is especially true for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. For Notebookcheck, I have been on the ball since 2013 and I am looking forward to the innovations that are still to come and that we will put to the acid test for you.
