+++ Update 10:06 .: The Wiko Wax is now officially available in Germany. And it teaches launch a very special novelty with it, it is in fact the first Wiko LTE phone that is available in Germany. Unlike the other Wiko phone models it is unfortunately not equipped with 2 SIM card slots. At this point we need to correct our preliminary information on Wax. +++
Apart from this high-end feature is the Wiko Wax however largely to a typical mid-range model. Correspondingly, the Price: 199 € for calls Wiko cell phone on after the device originally € 230 should cost. Commercially, it is already for less than 180 € to see. Because it’s worth it but eventually, first time to be seen after the release anything if the price is not significantly further reduces yet.
While most new smartphones Wiko come with 5-inch displays, the manufacturer has chosen the Wax for a slightly smaller screen: 4.7 “touch display with normal HD, ie 1280 × 720 pixels.
That’s something better than the Wiko Rainbow, which although providing the same amount of pixels, but these must be spread a little more display area. Wiko has as usual opted for an IPS display, which usually means a very good viewing angles.
With Android 4.3, the Wiko Wax is generally well equipped, unfortunately, the manufacturer has not opted for the latest version 4.4.2.
Time really fast mobile Internet
One thing is clear: faster than LTE mobile Internet in Germany is currently not possible. The best mono-SIM phones therefore a corresponding LTE module is indispensable Aussattungsmerkmal. “Speed to the max” is therefore the motto of Wax.
Ironically, in this model with an extremely fast Internet waived Wiko So the otherwise typical of the brand dual SIM function. On the first LTE dual SIM cell phone so you have to continue to wait – almost inconceivable that even years after the introduction of the fastest mobile standards no single dual SIM smartphone had come with the appropriate technology to market.
Processor and memory
Somewhere reasonable price has to come so, so some product details are naturally been rather little weaker. For example, the small internal memory of just 4GB. The memory of 1GB is contrary ok. Apps, pictures and other files can be at least as well as move to a microSD card – but the maximum phone supports cards with 32 GB, which in time of 64GB cards also better would be allowed to fail.
Solid: The 8 megapixel camera on the rear panel are supported by an LED flash, currently popular gimmicks like HDR and face detection are also included. For chats and selfies 5 megapixels are on the display side with it.
Conclusion: Who should the Wiko Wax buy?
Anyone who has long fan of the brand, and now want to make the step towards LTE – however caution: It is exceptional to NO dual SIM mobile phone brand that is known for their models with 2 SIM slots otherwise. Logically, it therefore has no place in our best dual SIM phones taken.
Otherwise, it is simply a fair priced mid-range device that enables the highlight really fast browsing – if you can do without features such as full HD, large memory and top camera.
