The Wiko Fever is a glow in the dark smartphone that features an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, a 13 megapixels rear camera and a 5 megapixels front camera. The device is one of those affordable smartphones released by E.U mobile giant, Wiko. This article provides an overview of the features/characteristics of the device as well as a Wiko Fever review.
The main attraction of the Wiko Fever is that its fluorescent design makes it glow in the dark. It is a pretty slim device, 8.3 millimeters thick, and Wiko has also chosen to incorporate a curved metal frame in the side of the device, which gives it a premium look. Meanwhile touching the rear simulates leather, which has been done on purpose to provide a more comfortable experience. There are three different colors on the market: black with gold frame, white with gray frame and black with gray framework.
With regard to the screen, the Wiko Fever has a 5.2-inch display, which places it somewhere between smartphones and popular phablets. The resolution of the panel is full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), giving it a pixel density of 424 dots per inch. This detail is especially useful when viewing multimedia content such as videos or playing games available for Android.
In recent times, the camera has become one of the most important sections of a phone. Wiko has equipped its flagship with a 13 megapixel sensor that includes LED flash, autofocus and HDR. You can get good pictures in low light with this camera. Another function that you will find in this device is Sound Shot, through which you can capture an image when a sound is heard. As you can imagine, the camera will be able to make video recordings in high resolution (1080p).
Meanwhile on the front you find a camera with a 5 megapixel sensor, acceptable enough to take selfies and perform videoconferencing with good quality resolution. The secondary camera also has flash, which will undoubtedly improve imaging in dark places. Both cameras offer good quality and the added flash on the front camera is something that few other smartphones have. It is a feature on the HTC Desire Eye.
The Wiko Fever is powered by a MediaTek eight-core processor, able to work at a power of 1.3 GHz. The chip is accompanied by a memory of 3 GB RAM, which will, no doubt, allow the device to work in a smooth and acceptable manner.
As for internal storage, the device will be available with 16GB, expandable through the use of MicroSD memory cards up to 64GB. This storage space is low compared to the 32GB on the Lenovo Vibe P1, released around the same time, but as always you can to use a storage service like Dropbox that allows you to have some free space to make use of them at any time and place.
The new phone is able to access 4G high-speed networks, and can download up to 150 Mbps. It also has WiFi, allowing you to save data, and Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a MicroUSB port, allowing us to charge your device and transfer data to the computer. The device also has a jack for connecting headphones or speakers.
In the area of autonomy, the Wiko Fever makes use of a of 2,900 milliamps battery. So far the company has not provided data on usage time or standby time, although we think that this capacity should be sufficient to use the phone more one day without the need to charge it. As soon as this info is available we will be sure to add it here for you. You can check out other Wiko Smartphones but I'd reckon that this is the best one yet.

Here is a video uploaded by Wiko to YouTube highlighting the features of the Wiko Fever.
This is a good choice for a gift, the phone perfectly meets all expectations, both of the most demanding users as well as those who need a phone to talk and little else. Its screen is the perfect size, it has a fairly powerful processor and its design is elegant and minimal, except at night, which is the time when the Wiko Fever shines brightest.
The Wiko Fever releases in November 2015.
The Wiko Fever price is 200 euros. Pretty affordable as with most of the devices from Wiko.
