Wiko Lenny 2 Review
It’s about 2 weeks since I have the Wiko Lenny 2 and I would like to give a quick review on my usage of this smartphone from Wiko as my second phone (back-up phone). Usually those who are at a tight budget or someone who already have a flagship smartphone would still consider having another phone just in case to use when their main phone’s battery is dead, out of data, carrying extra SIM if the main phone is a single SIM device and to drama as a average person who can’t afford an expensive smartphone. 😛
What’s in the box?
- 1 x Wiko Lenny 2
- 1 x Warranty Card
- 1 x User Manual
- 1 x 2-pin travel adapater
- 1 x USB charging cable
- 1 x In-Ear earphones
- 1 x transparent hard back case
Okay, so the Lenny 2 is a smartphone which doesn’t cost you a bomb at just RM299. The brand Wiko is pretty new in Malaysian market and people still have doubt if they should give this brand a try. Well, their phone is good. They’ve good reputation in France itself as this is a smartphone founded in France with the manufacturing done at China. The Lenny 2 aims to target those who can’t really afford a really expensive phone plus a decent performer. This phone can actually work well based on your usage.
For me, I use this phone mainly for web browsing and social messaging services only. It does not lag badly. I am not saying that it doesn’t lag at all as after all it comes with only 1GB of RAM, however it does not lag too much till it annoys and irritates you. I could easily use WhatsApp and browse through Chrome to my favorite websites.
Why should you consider getting the Wiko Lenny 2?
Touching about the additional features this phone has. The Wiko Lenny 2 has a 5-inch IPS display which is a decent display with good quality. Well the camera has tracking auto focus when you long press on the screen on the particular object to focus. You can also activate or deactivate the EIS ( Electronic Image Stabilization ) in the video mode. The RAM is 1GB which is pretty good for the pricing as some still comes at 768MB or 512MB at that price.
Next, it does have a flash to accompany your main camera. It comes out of the box with Android 5.1 Lollipop, this is good too assuming some phones at similar pricing still comes with Android 4.4 Kit Kat. The battery isn’t that bad averaging at about 2.5 hours of Screen On Time for web browsing and WhatsApp. Last but not least, the best part of this smartphone is that it’s a dual SIM (one micro SIM and another mini SIM) device and you can even slot in a micro SD card as the slot is made available too. Almost forgot this one, you do get a free back case within the box which saves you time and money to hunt for a protective case for your Lenny 2.
If you’re considering a smartphone with a very low budget and not to use it as a main phone, this could be one of your perfect choice. You could also buy this for your parents who are not really going to utilize the entire features available on a smartphone. A basic smartphone which could handle proper social messaging and phone calls. I will end this quick review with the full specification in the Malaysian market.
