The Wiko Rainbow Jam is a low end smartphone that features a 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera and an internal memory of 16 GB. The Wiko Rainbow Jam, a step up from the Wiko Lenny 2, runs the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. This article presents an overview of the features and specs as well as a Wiko Rainbow Jam review.
As with most low end smartphones, the Wiko Rainbow Jam uses a display of five inches. It is an IPS panel that achieves a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels, which gives a pixel density of 293 dots per inch and a medium level of detail with regard to menus and other features of the Android OS. Furthermore, the use of the IPS panel favors viewing angles up to 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically. Moreover, the company has sought to highlight the use of Dragontrail technology to improve the strength of the screen’s glass, making it resistant against bumps and scratches.
As far as the design goes, the smartphone is 9.3 mm thick and weighing 159 grams. This isn’t particularly thin or lightweight but it is in line with most Wiko Smartphones. The device is available in black, white, turquoise and coral.
The Wiko Rainbow Jam runs on a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor with a Mediatek MT6580 chipset and a Mali-400 GPU. This is a basic setup that is capable of dealing with applications and games for the platform Android 5.1 Lollipop 0.1. The device runs with 1GB of RAM. This is enough for basic multitasking but lags on more intensive tasks such as high def. gaming and videos.
To save personal, apps and games files, the Wiko Rainbow Jam integrates an internal memory of 16 GB. A substantial amount of storage space as most devices in this price range cap out at 8 GB. If you need more storage capacity, you can use a MicroSD card up to 64 GB.
In the multimedia section, the Rainbow Jam incorporates an eight megapixel rear camera with LED flash, autofocus and HDR capabilities. Almost more interesting is the camera on the front end, with a resolution of five megapixels and a good viewing angle to facilitate vivid selfies and video calls.
In the field of connections, the main attraction of this model is its dual SIM card slot that allows you to use up to two phone numbers in one device. On the downside, you must bear in mind that this equipment is not compatible with the 4G high-speed network, so you can not use these modern networks. What it does include is WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. Luckily, there is a Wiko Rainbow Jam 4G model, if you’re really bent on getting on a 4G network.
The battery of the Wiko Rainbow Jam is 2,000 milliamps. According to data from the firm, it will allow you to reach up to 23 hours of talk time on 2G and 20 hours of talk time in 3G mode.
Building on previous models, the Wiko Rainbow Jam offers more storage space, the latest version of Android Lollipop and a very solid camera with great features. All this while still remaining very affordable. This device is perfect, like most Wiko Smartphones, for gifting or for families wanting to stay connected while keeping a manageable budget.
The Rainbow Jam hit stores in September, 2015.
The Rainbow Jam price is 140 euros.
