It is one of the most colorful mobiles in the Wiko catalog . The European brand has just presented in Spain a new affordable proposal for all those users who want to get hold of a smart mobile phone for the first time. The new WIKO OZZY is unveiled equipped with a 3.5-inch multi-touch screen and a dual-core processor , responsible for carrying out all the processes that take place in the terminal: browsing, running the main applications or image capture, among other functions. The device incorporates a simple photographic camera , just 2 megapixels, but it has all the elements that will allow us to access the Internet from our mobile phone, enjoy free instant messaging or interact, for example, with our favorite social networks.
Like the rest of the smartphones in the Wiko catalog , this WIKO OZZY also works through Google icons . Specifically, it does so through Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) , with a wide assortment of applications and services installed as standard on the terminal. Those who are already looking forward to acquiring it will be in luck. And it is that the WIKO OZZY will go on sale in Spain from next September 15 , for a price of 90 euros in the free market. Next, we thoroughly analyze your technical data sheet in great detail.
Design and display
It is obvious that the WIKO OZZY is a compact mobile phone that is comfortable and pleasant to the touch. It has dimensions of 115 x 63 x 13.3 mm and weighs about 109 grams battery included. Its rounded edges make it adapt very well to our hand when holding it and that it is very easy to interact with all its functions. The screen occupies part of the front surface, although Wiko has reserved space at the top (for the speaker and the secondary camera) and at the bottom, where we will find three touch buttonsthat give us access to the main menu functions and the back button. The youthful and carefree touch is given by the colors. And it is that Wiko has decided to incorporate the Wiko OZZY into its catalog in five different shades, each more striking. On the one hand there are the classic models in black and white , but then we came across three more units in turquoise blue, coral and fuchsia .
As we said, the screen is a fundamental part of this device. This is a panel LCD TFT 3.5 inch with a resolution HVGA 320 x 480 pixels . As you can see, we are facing a screen of discrete dimensions if we compare it with those of today's large smartphones , but identical to that of the iPhone 4 , for example.
The camera is not one of its strong points. Nevertheless, it incorporates a 2 - megapixel sensor that will allow us to take pictures on a minimum quality and, we are sure, will see us more than a pinch. In addition, it has a built-in 4x digital zoom and offers the user the possibility of photographing scenes in different color effects, such as negative or sepia. There is also the option to adjust the white balance (which would be equivalent to lighting) with different modes (Automatic, Incandescent, Daylight, Fluorescent, Cloudy or Twilight) to adapt to the situations of the scene that we are photographing and its characteristics of illumination. How could it be otherwise, the camera also has a built-in video recording function (864 x 480) and a small image editor to make some specific adjustments. Finally, the Wiko OZZY also has a secondary camera, located on the front, which will be great for making video calls and self-portraits .
Memory and power
As part of the devices that are in the Wiko catalog , the Wiko OZZY has an internal memory of 4 GB , space that the user can use to save their favorite content: images, videos, music collections, applications, etc. But this is not all. And is that just in case I did not have enough with this capacity, there is the possibility of expanding the memory with microSD cards of up to 32 GB . The most advisable thing, in fact, is to insert a card in the slot enabled for this purpose in order to prevent the internal memory from filling up immediately and receiving, over and over again, messages that invite us to free up space on the computer .
Already in the performance section, the Wiko OZZY has a RAM of 512 MB . It is true that we would have preferred it to have a full 1 GB , but for basic use this capacity will be sufficient. It is successfully combined with a processor (Cortex-A7) , composed of a dual-core architecture and prepared to operate at a clock frequency of 1 GHz .
Operating system and applications
All the devices that Wiko has in its catalog work through Google icons , so the Wiko OZZY was not going to be less. This model, specifically, has one of the latest editions of the platform integrated: Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) , with important improvements over the previous version. We refer to all the news in the notification system, a completely renewed user interface, the new driving mode, changes in the settings system or improvements in the image gallery. The distribution of icons that the device presents is the classic one that we find on any smartphone or tabletwith Android , with the possibility of configuring the home screen according to the needs of each user with widgets , functions and icons for direct access to the different applications, utilities and video games.
But this is not all we know about the operating system of this Wiko OZZY . And it is that as a good Android terminal , it has all the functions and services that Google offers to users for free. In this way, as soon as we take this device out of the box we will find Google Search , Google Chrome (the browser), Voice Search , YouTube (to watch streaming videos), Gmail , Google Talk and Google Maps (to make the most of GPS functions ) and Google Play, the application and multimedia content store that Mountain View makes available to its customers. Additionally, the device incorporates the basic functions of clock, alarm, calculator and calendar .
And although this is not a high-end device, the Wiko OZZY is a perfectly equipped phone for connectivity . To begin with, we have to indicate that it is capable of operating over HSPA + / 3G + / 3G WCDMA 900/2100 and 2G GSM / GPRS / EDGE 900/1800/1900 networks . This means that the user will be able to access 3G networks without any problem , to enjoy an agile and fast navigation, optimized for maximum transfer rates of 21 Mbps (HSDPA) and 5.76 Mbps (HSUPA) . The device also supports 802.11 b / g / n WiFi networks , making it easy to access any wireless networkavailable, either at home, at work or in any other public space that offers it and incorporates the WiFi Hotspot functionality to create a WiFi point and connect other devices (laptops, mobiles, tablets…) to our 3G connection .
The Wiko OZZY is also compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology and with GPS (aGPS) , a feature that will allow us to take advantage of the geolocation services of any application, as well as use the phone as a GPS navigator for the car or for our routes on foot. , connected for free to Google Maps .
In the section on physical connections, it presents a microUSB 2.0 input to connect the phone to the computer, as well as a 3.5 mm output for headphones . At this point we also have to indicate that the WIKO OZZY has a double SIM card slot . This will allow us to carry up to two phone numbers on the same device.
Music, video, photos and multimedia
The Wiko OZZY is a phone that allows playback of music, photos and video . So much so, that we can turn it into a true pocket multimedia content player. It supports the main most widely used file formats: Mp3, Midi, AAC, AAC +, AMR, WB-AMR, WAV, OggVorbis, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, 3GP and Mp4 . It also has stereo FM Radio , to alternate with your favorite radio programs and stations, as well as 3D Sound and voice dictation functions. Logically, the user will also be able to connect to the main sources of streaming multimedia content . One of the most famous platforms is, without a doubt,YouTube . In fact, the application for this service is installed as standard on the device.
Autonomy and availability
The new Wiko OZZY has a built- in lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1,300 milliamps . It is a removable and rechargeable piece that will offer an autonomy of 160 hours in standby and in use, 14.96 hours (2G) and 10.96 hours (3G). It must be taken into account, however, that the final autonomy of the device can be affected by many other factors such as the functions that the user has activated , the state of the network or the personal use made of the device.
Regarding its availability in Spain , Wiko has already announced that the Wiko OZZY will arrive in our country from September 15 . It will be available on the open market for a very affordable price: 90 euros (VAT included) .
The European firm Wiko continues with its product deployment in Spain through the Wiko OZZY , a device that is part of the mid-range, but that incorporates all the features that we would ask of a smart phone today. We find components such as the screen (3.5-inch multi-touch), the processor (dual-core 1 GHz) and the integration of Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) as an operating system to be very successful. It could improve the RAM (barely 512 MB) and the camera (whose potential only covers two megapixels). We believe, despite this, that the WIKO OZZYa more than remarkable alternative for those users who want to get their first smart phone for a very affordable price.
