The Wiko U Feel Prime Smartphone

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) is a curvaceous smartphone with a 5″ IPS display that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920.  It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core SoC and the Qualcomm Adreno 505 GPU. It has 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal flash storage.

 

The U Feel Prime Ergonomics

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) has an all-metal chassis that curves around the back, offering great support to the hand. Even the glass cover has a 2.5D curved edge, which makes the U Feel Prime completely devoid of hard, sharp edges.

The matte finish feels nice to the skin, and is virtually fingerprint smear-resistant. Not that it matters once you slap on the provided TPU case.

Even though it fits our hand very comfortably, the Wiko U Feel Prime is still best used with two hands. You can use it with one hand, but it will require a fair bit of stretching and some juggling.

Hybrid SIM

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) supports up to two nano SIM cards, and it has Dual SIM, Dual Standby capability. However, it only comes with a hybrid SIM tray. The second SIM card (SIM2) shares the same slot as the microSD card.

You can either choose to use two nano SIM cards, or one nano SIM card and one microSD card. But not all three cards at the same time. Fortunately, the U Feel Prime (Lazada) comes with 32 GB of internal flash memory, which may obviate the need to install a microSD card for extra storage.

 

The U Feel Prime Cameras

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) comes with serious photography chops. Its front camera has a surprisingly high resolution 8 MP camera. It even has a dedicated LED flash for selfies in low light!

The main camera at the back has a 13 MP PDAF sensor with a dual LED flash. What’s interesting is the placement of the second microphone next to the camera. This may allow for better audio when you record videos.

Setting Up The Wiko U Feel Prime

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which should be familiar to many Android users. It is very easy to setup. If you are setting it up as a new device, it should take you only 5 minutes to finish the setup process.

 

Available Memory & Storage

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) comes with 4 GB of LPDDR3 memory, of which 3.6 GB is available for use. The Android 6.0 operating system and pre-loaded apps use 1.2 GB, leaving 2.4 GB (60%) free for you to use.

The U Feel Prime (Lazada) comes with 32 GB of internal flash storage, of which just over 22 GB is free to use. If that’s not enough, you can top it up with a microSD card (up to 64 GB).

Camera Performance

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) has a 13 MP main camera, with a f/2.2 lens. The full 13 MP resolution is attained with the 4:3 aspect ratio. Each picture has a resolution of 4160 × 3120, and a file size of 2-4 MB.

Here are 8 high-resolution samples for you to check out. Click on them to load the full-sized photos, which you can also download to examine.

As you can see, the the camera has good resolution. It can produce good images but you must be very, very careful about the lighting. Too little light – the images come out blurry. Too much light, the highlights get blown out to kingdom come.

Work Performance – PCMark

We tested the U Feel Prime’s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

Work Performance Score

Writing 5351 7316 4948 4141
Photo Editing 6355 8246 5243 3933

The Snapdragon 430-powered U Feel Prime (Lazada) did well in this test, coming in between the ASUS ZenFone 3 and the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017).

 

Gaming Performance – 3DMark

We tested the U Feel Prime’s gaming performance using 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.

Wiko U Feel Prime ASUS ZenFone 3 Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) OPPO F1s
Gaming Score 9590 13956 13540 7666
Graphics 9764 13484 13548 7511
Physics 9025 15903 13510 8265

Graphics Test 2 34.5 fps 46.1 fps 46.2 fps 24.4 fps
Physics Test 28.7 fps 50.5 fps 42.9 fps 26.2 fps

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) is not meant to be a gaming smartphone though. It was faster than the OPPO F1s, but it was nowhere as fast as the ASUS ZenFone 3 or the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017).

AnTuTu is a nice benchmark for testing various performance aspects of Android devices.

Our Verdict

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) is kind of a hidden gem. It is not a smartphone that you will hear people clamouring to buy. Wiko is, after all, a relatively unknown brand in these parts. But Wiko sure surprised us with what they were able to pack into the U Feel Prime.

Packed inside its 5″ metal chassis, is an octa-core Snapdragon processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, with a 3,000 mAh battery. It also has Dual SIM, Dual Standby capability, albeit with a Hybrid SIM tray. But that’s not all.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) boasts an 8 MP front camera with an LED flash, and a 13 MP main camera with dual LED flash. The only problem with the main camera – it doesn’t perform well in poorly-lit or overly bright conditions.

The Wiko U Feel Prime (Lazada) has a physical Home button, with a fingerprint sensor integrated into it. But curiously, the U Feel Prime uses virtual buttons too, so you end up with two Home buttons. This curiosity aside, the U Feel Prime smartphone comes across as a rather polished design.

You may not have heard of the Wiko brand, but if you want a smartphone that offers great value for money, good performance, the U Feel Prime (Lazada) is worth considering. Especially if you want a complete package that includes the case, screen protector and earphones.
