Display & Appearance
The review piece of the Wiko Lenny3 comes in a metallic gold back cover with an 8 Megapixel camera at the back. The camera has Flash for great night shots. The Wiko logo in the middle of the back cover of the phone and at the bottom is the phone’s internal speaker.
The right edge has a volume rocker and power button while the left is clean without any buttons. On the top is the USB port and headphone jack.
The 5 inch display screen has the home, back and recent buttons on the bottom side while at the top is the earpiece and a front 5MP camera with a Wiko logo at the top right.
The 5” display screen is a HD screen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels, pixel density: 294 PPI. The Super AMOLED display promises over 16m color reproduction for deep image or video clarity on media use making it good for watching movies, reading and viewing photos.
Hardware, OS & Performance
The Wiko Lenny3 has a new Wiko UI which brings a new feel to Android 6.0 Marshmallow which features a quick app launcher and My Music, for quick access to music.
With Marshmallow, users have access to Google updates and millions of apps to choose from and most of them are free. The phone has a 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera with a LED flash allowing users to take photos even in low light.
The phone’s 2000 mAh Li-ion battery is removable and Wiko promises it can stand heavy use, say a whole day on music and other applications. With 16GB internal memory users can take as many photos as they want and they can extend the memory to 80 GB via micro SD to store music, movies, apps and their photos and documents.
