Design

Since this device is new, it’s better to expect that it will show a good design and build to attract the crowd. It has a polycarbonate plastic back with a matte finish that when you touch it you can feel the premium texture with rounded corners and rounded edges. It offers three color variants which it is Black, Silver, and Klein Blue which is our review unit.

It is lightweight at 199g and ergonomically built in every aspect of its buttons; the volume rocker and power button are on the right side, which also serves as a fingerprint scanner, while the SIM card slot is on the left. At the bottom, there’s a speaker grille, a USB-C connector, and a headphone jack.

Display

As for its display, it boasts a 6.74-inch 1600 x 720 HD+ IPS display and a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera. The screen dimension alone indicates that the display is rather large for its price range. The bezels and chin are not particularly thick and vary in size.

A conventional 60Hz refresh rate is used for the screen. The display isn’t lacking in vibrancy, crispiness, or brightness. It offers a pixel density of up to 260ppi, which is sufficient for watching your favorite movies or YouTube videos while providing fair viewing and good screen details.

Camera

On the back of WIKO10, there are three cameras, the main one is a 50MP ISOCELL JN1 main camera with f/1.8 aperture. It provides decent performance in most photography situations. The main camera also has “pixel isolation technology”, which allows more light to be captured by each pixel, resulting in brighter and more vivid photos. To accommodate your various needs, its camera has Panorama, Beauty mode, Video, Bokeh, Super macro, Time-Lapse, Professional Mode, Slow motion Mode, and more. Also, its selfie camera has an 8MP snapper, which is adequate for everyday use.

It can shoot videos up to 1080p resolution at 30fps. It can also take bright photos at night, which are pretty fair or the same as the day if there’s enough light around. Its Photo mode shoots well enough, and using Night mode also offers decent outputs.

When I used each of its cameras, it showed a result that was good for a budget-friendly smartphone.

Shooting with its 50MP main camera produced respectable results. It offers an image with good color all around. Photos gain rich colors and clarity by turning on their HDR. When it comes to outdoor photography, Wiko 10 delivers outstanding performance for an entry-level smartphone.

Let’s switch to Bokeh mode or its portrait mode, although edge detection is not that accurate, the blur volume is adjustable. While the colors are superb due to the usage of the same 50MP lens, the images are clear and detailed with a balanced exposure.

As for its 2MP macro, it can offer a straightforward photograph of an object. The macro lens delivers upright shades and doesn’t give any blurry shots.

There was a minor decrease in performance when it came to night mode. As you can see in the photo, it cannot provide the desired quality, but the output improves when there is adequate light around.

Now as for its 8MP selfie camera. It has vivid colors and quality suitable for day-to-day selfie use, or even for social media posting. Additionally, its effects filters contribute to improving the aesthetics of a shot.

Performance

With the camera out of the way, let’s move forward to its performance. Although it is an entry-level smartphone phone, it delivers phone performance that is quite reliable. It has an Helio G37 processor with 12 nm paired with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. With such things, we experience the smoothness of scrolling and multitasking even if it is only 60Hz. Its processor and chipset are accompanied by 6GB of ram which carries 128GB of internal storage.

Next is its battery, it features a built-in battery capacity of 5000mAh and a 22.5W SuperCharge that can fully juice up the device in just 1 hour and 51 minutes, which is not bad considering the battery’s capacity.  It can keep the phone operating for more than a day with moderate use. It simply implies that you will have less time charging and more time surfing and gaming.

Verdict

Overall, WIKO 10 is an impressive device that offers adequate performance considering its budget-friendly price.
