The Wiko Lenny 2, the successor of the Wiko Lenny, is a basic smartphone aimed at consumers looking to buy on a budget. The Wiko Lenny 2 improves upon the architecture of the original Wiko Lenny with a larger screen, more RAM and a new and improved operating system. Follow this article as we take you through all the specs and offer you a brief Wiko Lenny 2 review.
The design of the Wiko LENNY 2 fulfills the basic precepts of an entry-level device. So much so that metals have been replaced by polycarbonate plastic, so in addition to getting this phone cheaper, it offers a super comfortable grip and still has a premium feel despite its building materials. The appearance of the device is as compact. The rounded edges help a little. At the bottom are the capacitive controls, used to launch certain functions quickly. Also, we can say that the device is available in four different colors, which are: black, white, turquoise and coral.
The screen is one of the most important elements of this device and any smartphone for that matter. This device includes a 5.5-inch touch screen with a resolution of FWVGA 854 x 480 pixels and a density of 178 dots per inch. This is undoubtedly a basic setup, but enough to play the vast majority of content and do it smoothly.
In the section of the camera, lets not expect a miracle, but the graphics experience can be good. It includes a 5 megapixel main camera with LED flash that will help us take pictures and videos with very good quality, particularly FullHD 1080p and 30 fps. But there’s more to the Lenny 2 than that.
The users of this device will also enjoy many other complementary functions such as HDR mode, auto focus or face and smile detection . It should be noted, moreover, that the device has a 2 megapixels front camera which is .7 megapixels higher than the one on the Wiko Lenny. It can be used for selfies and Skype video calls which, in this case, may not be particularly good in terms of quality. (For better cameras, you can check out the Wiko Rainbow or the Wiko Rainbow Jam)
Moreover, the new Wiko LENNY 2 (as most smartphones today), is equipped for delivering a variety multimedia content. This includes photos, videos, music and so on. As if this were not enough, it also has FM Radio with RDS and voice dictation functions.
The Wiko LENNY 2 is equipped with a quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz and 1 GB of RAM, which is essential to ensure the proper performance of installed applications and functions. This capability is a fair but not if you are someone who feels a passion for installing lot applications. In that case, it might be interesting to take a look at another phone with more capacity. If you’re not in that category of smartphone users then, with Wiko LENNY 2 you can have more than enough.
Another important detail: the memory. In this case, there is only 8GB of storage space, which undoubtedly will be insufficient if you keep pictures and videos on your device. What we recommend here is to acquire a physical microSD card with which you can expand the storage capabilities of the device. This device supports cards up to 64 GB.
One of the strengths of this device is undoubtedly the operating system. And the Wiko LENNY 2 works through the Google Mobile Android operating system . In this case, it ships standard with Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Connectivity wise, you really should not expect great things, because the Wiko LENNY 2 is not a phone that can access LTE / 4G networks. However users can access 3G networks smoothly and also enjoy good transfer and data. Moreover, the phone also includes access to WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS, which will come out great for certain applications if you plan to use the Wiko LENNY 2 like a dedicated GPS navigator.
In the section on physical connections, the Wiko LENNY 2 complies with the basics: microUSB input, one 3.5 mm headphone jack and a slot for microSD cards. Additionally, as almost all Wiko smartphones, it also has a dual SIM card slot that will come in handy if you are one of those who need to have two numbers on a single smartphone.
The Wiko LENNY 2 is ready with a battery of 1,800 milliamps, which is not much, but it can be enough for medium use that can last at least a day. As reported by Wiko through the device sheet, the battery can guarantee usage times of 13.2 hours using 2G and more than 11 hours on 3G.
The Wiko Lenny 2 hit stores in September, 2015.
The Wiko Lenny 2 price sits at 109 euros.
The Wiko Lenny 2 offers an affordable choice to anyone looking to get into the feel of an Android device. Although the device lacks any real fanfare worthy features, it does offer the basics which are more than enough to satisfy everyday users or beginners. The good thing is that it runs on Android Lollipop which means it offers all the latest features oft he operating system.
