Unboxing & First Impressions: Wiko Robby


ae734b3b68e84c3fcb60a55b8b98003eWiko Robby is sold in a hardened but beautifully branded box showing the firm’s dedication to ship only quality products to the market. Before one opens the box, there is an assurance of quality, class and durability just by observing the packaging and branding. Wiko knows that first impressions last and can make one to either buy or pass the phone for another especially in this new-to smartphone market segment where specifics are more of the same or nearly the same.

The Dual SIM Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered smartphone has a 5.5-inch display screen, a removable 2,500mAh battery and a  Quad-core Mediatek MT6580M 1.3GHz processor.

The 3G smartphone has a 1GB RAM, a 16GB internal memory which can be expanded via microSD and it’s main camera is 8MP while its front camera is 5MP.

Like it sister releases Lenny 3 and Ufeel Lite, we quickly notice that the Wiko Robby runs its own customised UI which comes with features such as My Launcher, Phone Assist, My Music, Battery Tips & Widget, My Apps among others making it easier for a user to access their apps, save the battery when it reaches a critical level, take photos instantly and make calls and lock or unlock their phones easily.



At 5.5 inch, the phone is a bigger than its 5 inch sister brands but this makes it better for media consumption-say music, movies, apps, photos and even text.  The screen is also good for shots combined with the phones 8 MP main camera.
