Wiko Ufeel Go package

Wiko Ufeel Go is the new member of Wiko Mobile Malaysia’s Ufeel range Android smartphone. The 5-inch phone is designed in France, equipped with 4,000 mAh battery and fingerprint sensor. Read on for my review of Wiko Ufeel Go.

Design

The phone has a premium sleek metal design. The review unit I received is Space Grey colour. I like the colour very much. It is classy and elegant.

Interestingly, the phone accessories (power adapter, headset, micro USB cable) are matching the phone’s colour with all black colour.

Wiko also includes a protective case and a screen protector in the box. They provide a full 360° phone protection without covering up the phone’s beautiful design.

The phone has rounded edges and smooth curved back cover. It is comfortable to hold in hand and not slippery.

Removing the back cover will reveal the SIM slots, micro SD memory card slot and battery.

Wiko Ufeel Go supports 2 micro SIM cards and micro SD memory card at the same time. SIM card adapters are included, in case your SIM card is a different format.

The front panel is all black at a glance, except the selfie flash at the top. Home button at the bottom is also a fingerprint sensor.

The volume rocker and power button are located on the right side, leaving the left side clean. 3.5mm headphone jack is at the top.

Instead of located at the centre of the bottom, the micro USB port is uniquely located at the left side of the bottom.

Overall, Wiko Ufeel Go is a premium-designed smartphone beyond its price point.

4,000 mAh battery capacity

Wiko Ufeel Go is powered by a built-in 4,000 mAh battery. The large battery capacity provides longer lasting battery life.

With the power-sharing capability, it can even act as a powerbank to charge your other devices!

The battery will last up to 395 hours in stand-by mode. Or, 2G talk time up to 35 hours (up to 18 hours 3G talk time)!

In my PCMark Work 2.0 battery life benchmark test, Wiko Ufeel Go recorded over 9 hours of battery life, which make it one of the most long-lasting smartphone!

Fingerprint Sensor

Wiko Ufeel Go has a fast fingerprint sensor which unlocks the phone in half a second.

You can register up to 5 fingerprints and assign an action for each fingerprint. The action could be open an installed app, launches camera, or make a phone call.

Also, you can use fingerprint to access encrypted files and unlock protected apps.

Hardware and Performance

Wiko Ufeel Go is a 4G LTE smartphone powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB storage (expandable with micro SD memory card up to 64GB).

The 5-inch IPS display with 2.5D glass has an HD resolution (1280×720). Its pixel density is 294 PPI (Pixels Per Inch) providing sharp text and images. It has high brightness and great viewable angle.

The CABC technology will automatically adjust the display brightness to save battery life.

The phone’s speaker is surprisingly loud and audio quality is above average phone speakers.
